Richard E.
Verified review

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.

Katie is the bomb! She does bookkeeping for our 3 companies and the 2 owners personal accounts. Come tax time I don't have to worry about getting things together, because she's already taken care of everything. When I travel and have special requests or need a new report she's responsive and accurate. Knowing where the company is at financially is no longer a problem since we hired her. I highly recommend Kasper Bookkeeping.

If a business came to me needing business advice and direction I would definitely send them to Kanter & Associates P.A., C.P.A. Kanter & Associates P.A., C.P.A. can do everything from the ancillary payroll and tax strategy planning to advising you on business strategies and practices, taking you from where you are to where you can be. We are a small family owned and operated business that looks to our accountant to speak upon reliable business practices as well as sound financial methods and we found that with Kanter & Associates P.A., C.P.A. We were able to consolidate a lot of services that we had spread out between different service companies. We had an accountant, we had a business advisor and we also had a payroll company and I was able to pull all those under one umbrella through Kanter & Associates P.A., C.P.A.

Savvy Accounting saved me as I struggled to get my business going. Starting with the help in drafting a business plan and expert consulting Savvy Accounting held my hand through it all. As the success kicked in high gear, I retained them for full cycle accounting functions, and the set up and ongoing processing of our payroll. Savvy Accounting is a valueable addition to my company that helps us work smarter - not harder.

    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.
