I came to Focus Accounting &CPA on the last minute, and before I finally made it to the office I rescheduled my appointment a few times. Jay was friendly and patient. He answered all my questions, and gave me a quote. I was happy with the price and the refund! Would recommend Jay!

George took over both my bookkeeping and tax preparation. We had a lot of catching up to do and George was focused, knowledgeable, thorough, efficient, and timely. I could not have reconciled all those years without him! I highly recommend George for anyone's personal or business bookkeeping/tax prep needs.

We hired TMB to do some clean up work after our last bookkeeper. What was supposed to be a quick assignment, quickly turned into a long term relationship. Tamika-Marie, was prompt and thorough in her assessment of our financial status, help us switch to a better accounting platform and mitigated our expenses by adding apps instead of the 12 different systems we were using. I recommend her to any small business looking to re-evaluate the operations.

Paras quickly determined my needs (even though I didn’t have a clue!) Shot off a business tax return to the federal government for all three of our partners, gave each of us a schedule k to file withour personal taxes, and gave recommendations for future compliance- He did this all for what he quoted on-line. I could not be happier with the service he provided!

Allen and his team were very responsive and professional. Before year end, I needed help with Quickbooks clean-up and tax planning. Through his advice, I not only found ways to substantially lower what I would have owed for the year, I now no longer have to worry about how things will turn out in April because he already let me know what my return will be. I would recommend Allen and anyone at his firm to business owners that are looking for the comfort that they are receiving the highest level service and the best advice.

    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.

      About

      'ehiku Consulting provides comprehensive bookkeeping, payroll, human resources, and business management services. After over 15 years of experience in the corporate world and having worked with start-ups as well as successful corporations, I have come to realize what was keeping many of my clients from reaching the level of success they aspired to achieve. Fact of the matter is the leaders, creative talents, and top performers in many companies are forced to spread their limited time in-between their specialty and the numerous, tedious daily tasks associated with running a business, maintaining records, contracting review, and many other items that can be done by conducting a specialist in a fraction of the time and cost. Our mission is to help companies focus resources on their core competencies, R&D, and client relations while providing a cost-effective, error, and hassle-free accounting, HR, and many other business management services.

        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.
