As a self-employed small business owner, the idea of learning about what qualified as expenses and deductions was a bit daunting and stressful in the midst of running said business. Luckily, I was referred to Christina who was nothing but professional, personable and immediately on top of any questions I had during the tax process. It made all the difference during my tax prep, and has continued to do so every single year since. I can't recommend her services enough!

I have been Lin’s client for the past six years and had no doubt give her a thumbs up. I own a piano teaching studio, and she has been with me since the start of my business. She offers full-range of accounting services from business incorporation, bookkeeping, financial statements, taxes, payroll, and audit. Her rates are reasonable, and I feel I am in good hands.

I don't even think about tax season anymore. I own a small business and don't have time to stress over tax season. I just send my paperwork to Miguel and he takes care of the rest. I really appreciate how he takes care of business.

As a self employed dance instructor, every dollar counts. Christy broke my tax return down in such a way with practical strategies, that helped me cut my federal taxes down to less than a 1/4 of what I had expected. I have employed accountants before who took my money but didn’t save me a dime. Thank you, Small Business Accounting, for having my back!

I was terrified to start my taxes as a first year freelancer, but Christine was so kind and warm and put me at ease about the whole process. She empathized with me about how scary it is to go into business for yourself, which meant a lot to have someone tell me they went through the same fears. Not only was she prompt in responses, thorough, and professional but she made me feel confident into going to business for myself and to keep at it. I highly recommend Christine and Brae Accounting...highly.

Brian is extremely knowledgeable, personable, and genuinely cares about my business. I am hiring his company to do my bookkeeping but I will also be utilizing his CFO consulting in the future as my company grows. Working with someone near me in NJ/NYC is important, and I can meet with Brian in person as needed.

When I met Frank my bookkeeping was literally shoe boxes full of receipts. Frank came to my office the first day I contacted him and has helped me create a monthly accounting system so that I can stop worrying so much and get back to business. He's always quick to respond and has even given me advice on my future endeavors. Frank and I will be working together for a long time. Highly Recommend!

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.
