I came to Cimmer with an unusual request to help me run my personal accounting like a business. She was incredible! Cimmer gave me options and talked me through even the smallest details until we had the perfect system for me in place; I would highly recommend her for any accounting needs.

Jumpstart CPAs did an exceptional job filing my tax return. Cimmer's understanding of accounting and tax code is unparalleled. If you get the opportunity to work with such a remarkable person, consider yourself fortunate. I have already hired Jumpstart CPAs to help with future tax planning, and I look forward to continuing our work.

Cimmer has been such an asset to our small business, bringing her exceptional knowledge of accounting and small businesses to meet our business needs. Cimmer is wonderfully responsive, works with speed with a high focus on quality as we look to build the processes and systems that we need to grow as we grow. We are especially grateful for the cost savings she has contributed in taking what was many many hours of work across many people and utilizing better software , processes and communication to cut our costs and time by greater than 50%. We would highly recommend Jumpstart CPAs to small and medium sized businesses for your accounting needs.

We were able to solve my problem while still in the process of evaluating the project. Virginia was able to quickly understand and evaluate the scope of the work that needed to be done and help me devise a way to best make use of my limited budget. She was straightforward and easy to talk to. Virginia would be my first call in the event that I might need tax related help in the future.

Jumpstart is great to work with. Patient with me after first contact through the delays in getting my business started but after that helped me choose the right software, worked 1:1 with me to get everything set up with the right business structure and processes to get things running smoothly. Now it's quick and efficient. Highly recommended.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    We are not like other firms that try to scam you into a monthly subscription you probably don't need. Instead we we work by the hour and you only pay for services you want and need. Rates start at $125 per hour depending on the type of service we are providing and your business size. We do offer fixed pricing for business tax returns based on your company's revenue (please see website for details).

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    There is no typical process because our service offering is so broad. We offer 1/2 hour free consultations to answer any questions and see if we are a good fit.
