Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I cannot provide a quote without looking at everything the client has, the progress of their bookkeeping, the volume of their information and evaluation of everything needed to be done. So we would first have a meeting to determine a game plan. Our work is generally done hourly except for the instance of a personal tax return, which would be completed in a finite period of time. We will do our utmost to please the client and come to a reasonable price for our accounting and tax services.
