I came to Mohamed 3 years ago because my business was getting audited by the IRS. He did a offer with the IRS and was able to reduce the monthly payment and overall debt. He cleaned up my books and did my financial statements. Everything about him, the process and how long it would take was up front. Now that my business in order he does my bookkeeping and give me great business consult.

I have been in business for over 20 years in the Companion Services industry. Monique has been my virtual bookkeeper for over four years now. She has implemented processes and procedures that streamlined my business. Additionally, she has automated my business from a manual accounting system to automated accounting system, specifically Quickbooks. Personally, I can say that she is honest, reliable, and dependable. A person would not go wrong with giving Simply Bookkeeping and Tax Service an opportunity the serve his or her business.

    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.
