I am writing this letter to recommend Cornelio Pacheco for any accounting and payroll needs that your firm may need. Cornelio has worked for as my accountant me the past 15 years (with the exception of a period of about two years when I moved to Los Angeles to open two hospitals for a major corporation). I'm a veterinarian, business owner, and hospital administrator of five veterinary hospitals throughout that time and he has been someone I could count on to always perform impeccably and has been a tremendous asset to my corporation from the beginning of our association. I am one of the many clients that Cornelio has in his practice, but I feel that the service he offers could benefit any business he works with and so I would like to support him in expanding his business by giving my strong recommendation. While working for me, he has been responsible for preparing monthly statements and financial reports, working with tax returns and computations, advising me on budgets and forecasts, and administering payroll and retirement plans. He has always been committed to excellence and is able to work well under pressure and against tight deadlines. He is highly detail oriented extremely well organized, a trait that has served him well when working with me, as I am admittedly disorganized, tardy with commitments and in my failure to follow through especially with regards to Cornelio's needs and wants with the financials. He is enthusiastic and energetic and knows how to gently prod and "remind me" of the data he needs from me, or the meeting we need to have, or the conference call that's coming up… I'm a great veterinarian when it comes to the business aspect of my practice I need help and guidance since it's not my forte or my favorite thing to do at work, so having Cornelio reminding me about timely financial commitments has been critical. Yet he does it in away that is kind, yet urgent, but yet very effective. He's one of those people that just gets things done. In a time where security and fraud seems so prevalent Cornelio has kept a close watch for any signs of irregularities, embezzlement, and fraud and as result in all these years I have not experienced any major losses associated with the above. There was a period of a couple years that I did not that I did not use Cornelio and this was when I moved to Los Angeles in what I thought may be a permanent move. Prior to that move, he was instrumental in helping me prepare financially to sell my veterinary practice in New Orleans Post Katrina in 2006. Although one of my two clinics had been destroyed by the hurricane the main hospital was severely damaged he was able to help in the rebuilding of the main hospital and this resulted in the hospital being sold above fair market value to my two associates. I was astounded. After the sale my practice successfully augmented by Cornelio, I was able to do some consulting and then moved to Los Angeles to open hospitals for Banfield Corporation. During this period and upon my return in late 2009 I had attempted to take my accounting internally which turned out to be a big mistake. I opened up to new hospitals in New Orleans in late 2009 in early 2010. To make a long story short it was somewhat of a struggle to get both of these businesses successfully off the ground due to the occurrence at the same time of the BP oil spill which dramatically affected the economy of our city. I had my son running the business and doing the financials and accounting work and this turned out to be a big mistake as I needed experienced and expertise guidance and budgeting in a timely fashion and I did not have it without Cornelio. This point I reengaged Cornelio as my accountant to help get me out of this dire situation, and he took over all aspects of payroll, budgeting, and accounting and he started dealing immediately with all the problems with budgeting, past payroll taxes, the IRS, local city tax delinquencies, and state state tax delinquencies. Cornelio methodically and efficiently took over as representative of our business and negotiated with the IRS and local and state auditors; this resulted in stabilized cash flow and a business that is now flourishing and growing again. He also help guide me to acquiring financing to stabilize our financial shortfalls and to help us invest in new equipment and the business. Thanks to his knowledge, his good judgment, and his spot on recommendations on moves we needed to make financially, we are once again a thriving business. Cornelio’s strong points are his combination of knowledge, experience, foresight and intuition in the financial area, as well as his ability to work with people (like myself) who are not comfortable with financial matters, and make them feel engaged and effective. It is with pleasure that I recommend Cornelio Pacheco for any accounting needs at your firm. I am confident that he will be an asset to your company. Best Regards, Dr. SG Hospital director/CEO New Orleans, LA

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.
