Your Accounting questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thervo.

What do accountants do?

Accountants help manage finances for businesses and individuals. Common services include:

  • Day-to-day bookkeeping: Recording income/expenses, processing payroll, managing accounts payable/receivable
  • Reporting: Preparing financial statements, cash flow reports, profit/loss statements
  • Taxes: Tax planning and preparation, filing returns, resolving audits
  • Auditing: Reviewing financial records to verify accuracy and compliance
  • Advising: Budgeting, reducing costs, improving profits, managing cash flow
  • Compliance: Ensuring legal/regulatory standards are met, documenting processes
  • Systems: Implementing accounting software/controls appropriate for the organization

How much do accountants charge?

Accountant fees vary widely based on several factors:

  • Location: Accountants in major metropolitan areas tend to charge higher rates, averaging $150 to $400 per hour. In smaller towns, rates may range from $100 to 250 per hour.
  • Experience level: Newly certified or junior accountants typically charge $50 to $150 per hour. Senior accountants with 5 to 10 years of experience charge $200 to $500 per hour on average.
  • Firm size: Solo practitioners and small local firms often have lower rates compared to larger regional or national firms.
  • Specializations: Accountants with niche expertise like forensic accounting or international taxes command higher rates.
  • Services: Commonly outsourced services like payroll, bookkeeping, and tax prep tend to cost less per hour than consultative services like auditing and financial planning.

Expect to pay $150 to $1,800+ for tax prep, $2,000 to $25,000+ for auditing, and $200 to $1,000 per month for bookkeeping, depending on your business size and needs. Request free consultations and compare detailed estimates before hiring.

How is an accountant different from a bookkeeper?

Bookkeepers handle daily transactions like recording expenses or issuing invoices. Accountants take the data bookkeepers compile and use it for high-level tasks like preparing financial statements, guiding business strategy, and filing taxes.

Most small businesses need both bookkeeping and higher-level accounting. A single accountant can provide both services, or you can hire a separate bookkeeper. If hiring both, ensure they communicate and regularly share data.

When should you hire an accountant?

Consider hiring an accountant if:

  • You need help selecting accounting systems and software for your business.
  • You need help with complex finances like managing investments, real estate, or international transactions.
  • Don't have the time or the training to do daily bookkeeping and accounting tasks yourself.
  • You need tax expertise to help maximize your return and prevent tax errors or penalties.
  • You're looking to identify cost reductions and growth opportunities.
  • You're preparing for an audit or sale and need to verify accurate financial statements.
  • You notice errors in your current system and need an expert to review processes and improve internal controls.

How do I choose an accountant near me?

The right accountant-client relationship can provide tremendous value to your business. Take the time to research options thoroughly before deciding who to hire. When researching accountants near you:

  • Ask for referrals from business owners in your industry.
  • Review credentials like CPA licensing, education, specializations.
  • Ask them for a free consultation and meet with them to discuss your needs.
  • Compare detailed estimates from at least 3 potential accountants.
  • Ask for client references and read client reviews on Lawful and Google.
  • Clearly communicate your expectations and budget.
  • Look for an accountant who communicates clearly and answers your questions in understandable terms.
  • Prioritize trust and rapport, as your accountant handles sensitive financial data.
  • Consider both large established CPA firms and smaller local professionals.

What questions should I ask when getting estimates from CPA firms or accountants?

Asking the below questions and choose an accountant who answers you promptly and clearly.

  • How long have you been an accountant?
  • What financial certifications do you have?
  • Do you specialize in a specific industry or area?
  • Can I have a free consultation? 
  • What accounting services do you offer?
  • How to you calculate and bill for your services?
