Focus Accounting & CPA Firm has helped me with tax filing and consulting services when needed. I must say Mr. Jay and his team have great deal of knowledge, professionalism, and energy. The fact that the team approaches each client with same level of energy and explains the complicated tax process in Layman’s term when needed, I highly recommend folks to use Focus Accounting & CPA Firm’ services.

Very happy with them and their rates. Went through an audit for my business with another firm which cost an enormous amount of money. Went through the second with Raymond and it cost a fraction. Absolutely amazing work. Very pleasant to work with and will never go to another auditor again.

Rebecca assisted me in helping me setting up books and compiling financial statements for 3 years worth of transactions! She completed them timely and was very responsive. She has a strong technical accounting background and made the process painless! I now work with her on a quarterly basis when we need to do a catchup!

Wendy Vincent helped me setup QuickBooks for Windshield Chip Repair Business, and she continues to maintain my Books in QuickBooks. I was very pleased that I was able to find someone to do this task for me, because accounting is not my strong suite. Wendy went above and beyond by also doing my tax returns annually, showing me how to improve my credit score. Wendy also assisted me with setting up a computerized version of my invoices that can be done in the field, using a cell phone app, so my invoices to customers are clean and neat which reduces errors. Wendy advised me to switch banks, for security reasons for my business account. The new bank was harder for me to use on the go, so I switched my bank back, and Wendy is working with my current bank that is easier for me to use. I really appreciate her looking out for the security of my business. She is very understanding of my needs, as well as my business needs, when it came to my bank, Wendy used the bank that I prefer and we both win. She also gave me a credit on my account for the cost I incurred to get new security checks.

I was very pleased when I worked with AK Accounting. They asked questions early on to get all the needed files to prepare for. They added value right away and helped clear my books in time for the end of the year. I really do appreciate their service and will continue to use them and recommend them.

    Bruce is great. He listens to my problems and always has a great recommendation for solving them. He helped us get our accounting system installed, HR systems in place, set up our company, prepared taxes and as we have grown, helped with complex business issues. Would not hesitate to recommend Bruce for any business help. He's not cheap, but well worth the price.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    What is an accountant?

    Accountants are financial professionals who have received an accounting degree from a four-year university or college. By trade, accountants prepare, maintain and examine the financial statements of an individual, business or institution. An accountant prepares reports for tax purposes and can also perform audits of public companies. Common tasks include creating budgets, analyzing profits and losses of a company, processing payroll, preparing financial statements for company leadership, and creating and maintaining financial database systems for a company.    

    Accountants do not automatically have a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) designation unless they have passed the Uniform CPA Examination and received the proper license. Regardless of whether they are CPA certified or not, accountants can assist businesses and individuals with bookkeeping and financial reporting, while CPAs are more knowledgeable in tax codes as a result of the CPA licensing examination and continuing education requirements. CPAs are also eligible to represent clients before the IRS if audit support is required, while a non-CPA accountant is not. Academic background, years in the field and professional reputation all can affect an accountant’s rates.

    How much does it cost to hire an accountant?

    Accountants’ rates vary based on their education, licenses, experience, and the work for which they are being hired. An accountant may charge an hourly rate when a company or individual needs their services on a short-term basis, such as when performing an audit or requesting assistance setting up a financial database or process. Hourly rates can range as widely as $40 per hour to $300 or more per hour, depending on your geographic location and the accountant. Check out the average hourly rate for accounting services in your region.

    Accountants may offer a package rate for weekly, monthly or annual services to reward ongoing customers. Many accountants offer online services where small businesses can access online accounting software and payroll assistance, and the accountant — for a monthly or other recurring fee — provides financial analysis and reporting of their numbers. For basic monthly accounting services, an accountant might charge anywhere from $75 to $500 or more, depending on what was included in a given package, the size of the client’s business, and the complexity of work requested. Nationally, full-time staff accountants earn between $40,000 and $80,000, depending on experience and other factors.
