My decision to hire StarAct LLP to handle my bookkeeping and to provide guidance to help maintain the overall health of my business, is one of the best decisions I have made since opening my business two years ago. I have had two other accountants who made huge mistakes with my books, were afraid of technology or were just plain unresponsive. Roland reached out to me right away when I posted my request on Thumbtack. He had positive reviews and a background check which are excellent signs. I am a Thumbtack vendor so I KNOW what to look for. He even went so far as to drive to my location in New Jersey from the Bronx to show me that he was serious about gaining my business. Roland got to work right away on assessing the condition of my books and had solutions within days. He is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of bookkeeping and tax preparation and has already helped me save money! StarAct uses the latest technology which makes it so easy for me to do my small part in the bookkeeping process. Within three weeks, StarAct had my 2015 books cleaned up and ready for tax time AND Roland came out to my location once again to review the books with me. The partners in this firm are all very well-educated and have a thriving accounting firm. Yet, they treat every client the same and make you feel like you are their most important client. They pride themselves on their level of service and responsiveness. Their rates are reasonable and fair. Based on StarAct's level of service, knowledge and responsiveness, my husband and I have decided to retain StartAct to handle our personal tax preparation and my husband plans to use StarAct for his own business as well. I would give StarAct 10 stars if I could!

She took the time to answer our questions and made some very valuable suggestions to help us maximize our tax deductions. We have recommended Lisa to many of our friends and business associates. You should give her an opportunity to assist you with your tax needs. You won't be disappointed!!

    Great job and very professional. They have an office in Norwalk, CT where you can meet and go over what you need done. The office was a little run down with difficult parking, but if you are paying for the quality of the accounting services than this will be quickly overlooked. They were always available to take my calls and very responsive to my questions. Got the work done in a timely manner.

    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.
