Absolutely amazing moving company! I was worried no one would take such a small job on short notice. However Adrian of Checkmate Professional Services came to our rescue. Adrian arrived 5 minutes early with all of his equipment. He was very professional and asked questions to make sure he was doing everything to our specifications. He helped us move and setup a 350lb outdoor fountain. My wife and I are very grateful for his company. We highly recommend them.

Kevin is a "student of the game" in accounting. He's done both my business and personal taxes for years. He's trust worthy and very knowledgable--he keeps his skills sharp. I referred another small business to Kevin and they rave about his attention to detail and abilities.

I met with Harry on a Saturday morning for my consultation. I explained to him that I needed help with EVERYTHING in regards to my business. For a person such as myself who knows very little about accounting and business taxes. I knew that this was the company that, I wanted to assist me with my accounting & business needs after the first 10 minutes of our consultation(very knowledgeable & professional) Needles to say I hired them the same day. I am very pleased with my decision.

I highly recommend Nathaniel Jacobson CPAs. Their quality and cost efficient accounting services really highlighted the difference between clerical bookkeepers and professional CPAs. Their adept implementation of cloud-based Xero financials and prompt and friendly support really impressed us and their effortless handling of months of backlogged paperwork and tax analysis made a real difference at a critical juncture in our business. It was a pleasant surprise that a full service multi-office accounting firm could offer flat rate value pricing for key services without any degradation in expertise or personalized attention. An expedient bookkeeping hire has instead become a competitive advantage!

Services: 1) Tax Preparation, 2) advice on a real estate issue. My experience with Suncrest Financial Services was excellent. I was contacted promptly by a accountant/consultant who was courteous and professional. My complicated tax preparation was performed in a very timely manner with great attention to detail. The paperwork was filed on time and the accountant gave me solid advice for preparing for filing 2016 taxes. The accountant researched my real estate question and her advice will save me money in the future. I was very impressed with the accountant and the customer service of the company. I plan to continue to use Suncrest Financial Services for my future accounting needs.

Business Help, Inc. provides thorough, knowledgeable and detail oriented bookkeeping and accounting services. While they have recently downsized staffing, the owner, James Landfield has taken over much of the direct service for my agency. Despite the decrease in staffing capacity, he as been able to maintain deadlines and work collaboratively with myself and my staff, both on-site and off-site.

They have managed the books and prepare my tax returns of my real estate business for the last three years. Accuracy is excellent, and work product is outstanding. They communicate very warmly and respond to my inquires on time. Very reasonable price and always providing extra services, particularly business advice and analysis. Very dependable and trustworthy. I had not kept great records of prior years and they compiled the information, did set me up with accounting system, and now I am able to review the business performance monthly after closing the books. I highly recommend them.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.
