I needed an immediate answer about contractor tax requirements pertaining to W9 documentation and Tony over-delivered with his response. In less than 10 minutes, he throughly explained what I needed in case of an audit, what I didn't need from the contract and why, and provided different options I could pursue if the contractor failed to comply with my request. The quick conversation with Tony was informative, impressive and super valuable! I'll surely hire him again for future accounting advice.

    Working with Heather and her team at Miller & Co has been invaluable to our company. Before we signed on with her we were just trying to keep up with the books but never knew how much money we were really making or losing. Heather's knowledge of both accounting and investing makes her firm a great partner and our bank loves our financial reports!

    Very grateful to Lynn for explaining some financial complexities to me in a way that made sense. She asked lots of questions and got a clear picture of what I needed, even when I didn't know! She is clearly knowledgeable and willing to go the extra mile to learn exactly how to help her clients. Thanks, Lynn!

    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.
