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.

We were somewhat dreading this appointment, only because we didn't know what to expect with having started two businesses last year, plus having our personal taxes to be dealt with. It was the best tax appointment we've ever had! Highly recommend if you want someone who actually provides guidance and feedback. We will be going back next year.

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.

I had Davidoff and Assoc do some back taxes for me. I had a business loss and made no money for 5 years and did not file my tax returns. Then I decided to get caught up and they were a great help. I had both business and personal and state and federal - 4 returns for 5 years - 20 returns. They did a great job of helping me get my records organized and then doing the returns. Considering the task I thought their charges were very reasonable. I can recommend them highly!!

I recently hired Luramon Jean Pierre, CPA, CMA to assist me with a variety of projects related to financial projections for my business start-up as well as completion and filing of my taxes. Mr. Pierre’s quality of work and customer service and satisfaction is ranked well above average. He is very knowledgeable and professional and he made sure that at each step and through each project, he understood my whole financial picture and was able to provide a detailed explanation of each process and the reasoning to support the explanations. He is very passionate about what he does and it is reflected in the projects that he produces. Mr. Pierre removed the high anxiety level that existed due to my anticipation of my personal tax outcome and how my financial projections for presentation of my business to lenders. He is very patient and flexible and takes his time to understand his customer needs. I would recommend Luramon Jean Pierre, CPA, CMA to anyone and everyone seeking the assistance of an extraordinary professional who handles financial situations with great ease on a personal or business level. Mr. Pierre transformed my vision and a complex tax situation into something that I can manage. I give Luramon Jean Pierre, CPA, CMA *****5 stars for his work ethic and his whole approach to his customers and meeting their needs. Dr. RD

Redstones is simply phenomenal. Jody Ruth has taken care of our day-to-day accounting needs, that every business has, plus she has provided guidance that will result in much larger profits in the future. We simply didn't realize how important having a Chief Financial Officer, rather than just an accountant, really was for our future. Redstones is cost-effective as well. Redstones has automated many of processes that if done manually would have cost us three times more to have an accountant do. We could not be happier with the service and advice that we have received from Redstones.

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.
