My father has been our corporate CPA since its inception, but retiring this year. That caused a great deal of anxiety and stress being able to trust another Accountant or CPA. After researching several local firms referred, I wasn’t pleased. So, I searched Thumbtack, received many responses, and could view everyone’s profile. I chose to contact JBJ Bookkeeping and spoke with Jeremy Derhak. After interviewing him, I hired him initially to clean-up our 2016 QBO bookkeeping. Seeing his work, I was impressed by his professionalism, responsiveness, proficiency, and level of competency. JBJ Bookkeeping has now been retained on a full-time basis. Without hesitation, I highly recommend JBJ Bookkeeping to anyone apprehensive like I was about switching firms. Jeremy Derhak goes above and beyond for his clients and that is a true rarity these days! Thank you JBJ Bookkeeping for treating us as clients and not a number.

I needed help filing for taxes and I had a bit of a complicated tax situation as I live and work abroad and after posting the job, Shane responded and quickly began working on my tax refund and literally completed everything in about 24 hours! I couldn't be happier with the attention and service and it was easy working for him even from an entire ocean away! This is definitely not the last time I'll be going to him for my accounting needs, highly recommended!

I was looking for an accountant for my business about 2 weeks ago. I had did phone interviews with about 4 accountants. I finally made the decision to meet with Andre at A Leske Accounting and I am so happy I did. He fully explained in detailed to me and my business partner everything we needed and why. He went over ever question we had and gave us a full explanation on why you do it this way to get the most out of taxes. After our experience working with Andre, we couldn't be happier. We plan to send out business friends to him. We give A Leake Accounting a 10/10. He went above and beyond of what we were expecting. A plus service all the way.

I really lucked out finding Mary and Flexa Accounting. We are working together on accounts for my employer but my husband is going to open his own business and I won’t work with anyone but Mary on his accounts. I highly recommend her to anyone. She’s incredibly knowledgeable and super helpful.

    I've worked w/ Steve for a couple of months, and he has really helped me to clean up my books so I can start using them to better understand my business and how to address problems sooner than later that may arise. I'd highly recommend Steve to anyone trying to run a business, but doesn't have an accounting background so you can focus on improving your business!

    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.
