Karen was extremely helpful and clear. Even though my organization's books were disorganized, she was easily able to understand and work with the data. She completed our taxes in short order and made recommendations for an easier way to do the accounting in 2015.

"I've had the pleasure of working with Ken Russell and his team at Access Accounting Services since 2006. Over the years they have offered invaluable support. Not only have I relied on them for accounting, payroll and bookkeeping services, but have learned that I can turn to them for strategic business advice. Additionally, their customer service is excellent. I would recommend that any small business owner utilize their services."

Sam is awesome! He helped me catch up on 3+ years of backed taxes, and it was as painless as something like that can be. Sam is knowledgable, friendly, professional and not an accounting robot to boot! Going to have him do our taxes this year and going forward - highly recommend Sam for your accounting needs!

Julie has been doing our accounting/bookkeeping work for the past five years on a weekly basis. She enters bills & payroll, prepares our quarterly reports, reconciles bank statements & works closely with our CPA to prepare our yearly tax returns. She posts our deposits & assists with making sure our QB class divisions are accurate so that our monthly/city reports for funding are processed timely. Pleasant to work with & flexible with her time - we can e-mail or call with questions or emergency needs & she gets right back to us.

It took me awhile to decide which accountant I was going to use as my business is new. Rob came to my home and spent hours working with me explaining the basics of accounting to build a foundation for us to move forward. He has an attention to detail that I really like, and isn't afraid to say to me "Todd, that isn't a good idea and here is why...". I appreciate that approach and it causes me to trust him with my money. He handles my payroll, accounting and has me hooked up with Richard Bologna (who Rob recommended) for my taxes. Between the two of those guys, I am quite comfortable to operate my business without worrying about my accounting. I highly recommend Rob Clark for your accounting.

Denise waded through piles of paper, held my hand, and never scolded me once about having gotten SO BEHIND on my fiscal responsibilities. She pulled me out of the muck and made everything right. I couldn't be happier with her work.

I have been dealing with Seattle Accounting for the last 3 years. I have 2 different companies that they do the book keeping for. These are both publicly traded companies, and they have done an excellent job in dealing with the auditors. They have always completed the required work BEFORE it is due and done a very good job of catching my mistakes. I am in Southern California and that has never been a problem getting paper work and checks delivered on time. I would highly recommend using Seattle Accounting. I have sent an email question at 9 in the evening expecting to get an answer in the morning and have received a response in 30 minutes.

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.
