Introduction: * NOTICE: I will be moving to Cincinnati OH from San Jose CA in May 2020. I have changed my location in my profile to reflect my future location. * COVID19 NOTICE: I am open for business during these challenging times. However I am keeping face to face contact to a minimum for the time being. I put a lot of thought into making the system easy to administer and the information easy to understand. It is almost always worthwhile to invest the time in making the system and processes work for everybody - and that is a big part of why I sometimes don't charge extra for system maintenance activities. (In short, both you and I benefit from the cost savings that come from better administrative efficiency.) We definitely want to use the financial reports to identify areas of concern, but good decision making comes from reading those reports in the context of your business operations. I've found this is something many bookkeepers and business owners alike often have difficulty doing. There have been many times in my career where I have had an opportunity to create order out of chaos. This is oftentimes a Godsend to clients who have become frustrated with bad information or cumbersome administrative processes. This may be a guilty pleasure of mine, but I really like being the hero!

I hired Daniel Hayes to help me with historic bookkeeping and catch up on my past due tax returns for my small business. Daniel Hayes has proven be a very knowledgeable CPA. Communication is great and billing practices are fair. I feel confident recommending Daniel Hayes for bookkeeping and accounting.

Daniel is wonderful to work with. He's super professional and extremely knowledgeable. In addition to preparing my taxes, he also answered any questions I had in regards to how property affects my taxes. I was a client when he was still in California and worked with him after he moved to Ohio. He is quick to respond, reliable, and very organized, even when working from another state! Highly recommend!

He's a number wizard. It's my first time having an accountant, and I came to our first meeting feeling pretty ill-prepared. I'm a small business (it's just me) and I felt strange hiring someone to do my books. I thought I should have been able to do it myself. He very soon made me feel comfortable and assured me I'd be fine. Daniel said that it's smart to ask for help, and focus on the things I do best. He prepared a great spreadsheet for me for all my expenses so now I'm set up to fend for myself better. He told me his timeline, updated me as he got things done and had it all finished just as he said he would. I'll definitely have him do my taxes next year.

FAQs

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

    It's not really that complicated, but it's a departure from the hourly rate model that is common in my profession. My pricing is largely activity based. I have a price list for various services and activities - and I use this price list in my work order system much like a plumber or electrician would do. It seems complex at times because prospective clients often want to know what it's going to cost as soon as possible. I need to know about their needs in some detail before I can give a reasonable estimate.

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

    I will have a discussion regarding their needs and situation and determine a course of action that makes sense.

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

    All of us CPA's are required by law to have at least 80 hours of continuing education every two years. I take the education part seriously, so I don't attempt to skate by with easy courses. Nearly all of my courses are self study because I get the most from that format. Anybody can sit in a seminar and pretend to listen to the speaker while doing crossword puzzles. To me, that isn't learning - that's doing time.
