Introduction: I have over 15 years of extensive tax experience consulting and advising with small and mid size companies and high net worth individuals. Also, I have many years of experience dealing with multi state tax filing requirements. I can help you regardless of your situation, from simple and straight forward situations to the more complex and convoluted tax matters. I can assist you with tax deductions and credits that can be easily overlooked. I would be honored to be your tax consultant, adviser or accountant beyond the tax filing season. My thorough initial tax consultations are always complimentary. Are you interested in an unbiased review and analysis of your prior tax returns as well as your current tax situation? You have nothing to lose and a new insight about your business or individual tax outlook to gain. My passion is to guide, direct, mentor and educate my clients when it comes to their taxes so they can take control and charge of their financial situation on a business and individual level. In addition, I recently passed the examination to become an accredited small business consultant using the SEMP Approach (Simplified Examination to Maximize Profit) so I can assist small business owners to improve their operations' productivity, efficiency and profitability. It is imperative for every business to have a SWOT Analysis (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats) done on their businesses. I would like to be viewed as your coach and business mentor in every phases of your business cycle.

Business Tax Preparation

Ragi was very responsive and worked on a very fast pace, during the weekend, to make deadline filings for corporate taxes when other accountants would not take the job on a such short notice. I am glad I found him and happy we met.
Ragi Riad CPA's reply
Evandro, Glad that I was able to assist you with your corporate tax filing needs two years ago. Your business continues to show signs of growth and maturity. You have a clear vision and business mindset that have helped you to achieve success. Best wishes as we continue working together.

Accounting

I found Ragi Riad through Thumbtack. He gave me the referral to my current payroll company. After speaking to several accountants, I am so glad I picked him. First of all, he is a great person but more importantly, he is a true professional in his work ethics. He won't let us cut corners or leave opening for problems later. Ragi is very detailed in his work!!!! He is available at any time to talk or handle issues that come up. Ragi was a life saver in helping us finish up our 2016 personal and business tax returns due to our previous accountant falling ill. He is more than an accountant, he helps with financial planning and has great business ideas to help us run the business's more effectively. You won't go wrong hiring Ragi.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I offer a complimentary 15-30 minute initial tax, accounting and business consultations where I connect with all business owners and individual taxpayers to discuss their tax and accounting needs in more details. I listen to your story and assess your situation based on a holistic approach. In addition, I am an accredited small business consultant who can help with your day-to-day business operations. Individual tax preparation starts at $250 for a simple return and that includes federal and state returns (1 State). Business tax preparation (including Schedule C) starts at $500 or higher depending on the level of complexity and involvement. I do not charge by the form or the number of tax documents; instead, I base my service on the value offered to my clients in terms of tax savings as well as tax compliance to protect them from potential IRS audits. Bookkeeping is at the hourly rate of $75. My monthly charge starts at $150 and will go up depending on the level of complexity and moving parts in the accounts. Please rest assured that I will only charge what is necessary based on your situation. I recently passed the examination to become an accredited small business consultant. If you need assistance with a SWOT Analysis or need to discuss operational inefficiencies and deficiencies, let's talk.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I offer a complimentary 15-30 minute initial consultations with prospective clients so they can get to ask questions about their specific situation and about my business model in general. Also, I get to know a little bit about them. I like to have a phone call or face-to-face meeting to discuss the clients' needs and expectations in more details as well as my responsibilities as their Certified Public Accountant. Before starting any project, I send an engagement letter that lists the responsibilities and expectations from both parties. I strongly encourage open communication.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I graduated from Biola University in 2003 with a Bachelor's of Science in Accounting (Cum Laude, Dean's List) I am a Certified Public Accountant. I am an Accredited Small Business Consultant.
