Are you tired of going home and still doing work when you could be spending time with the kids at the movies; wife on a cruise; family on a nice caribbean vacation; or simply relaxing while catching up on your favorite Netflix programs? If you are, you're in luck! All you need to do is hire a CPA for all your accounting, tax, payroll, and related business needs. And, there's no need to hire Sherlock Holmes to find one. I am right here.
Hi! My name is Dale Largie, CPA. I am a registered tax professional with the IRS and a Certified Public Accountant for the state of Florida. It's a pleasure to meet you!
People are happy when they know their trusted CPA is taking excellent care of their financial affairs. By doing so, entrepreneurs are able to focus more on building their businesses; building relationships; and spending more time being happy than stressing over financial statement preparation, delinquent tax returns; outstanding tax debts; and a host of other issues that their prudent CPA can resolve independently. So, go ahead! Retain a CPA and head to the beach.
Many sole proprietors, single-member LLCs, and several entrepreneurs of personal service corporations – including small businesses of any kind – falsely assume all CPAs are too expensive, so they become their own accountant, tax professional, legal counsel, and wear several ‘hats’ in an effort to save. Ironically, many entrepreneurs lose out on valuable tax savings which are usually more than the cost of retaining their own CPA. I have saved clients more money on one tax return for a single year that exceeded my fees for the next ten years. What is the cost? How much is a CPA worth? Is it better to retain a CPA hourly or have he or she on a fixed monthly rate? The short answer is - It depends. Affordable fixed rates vary and could be as low as:
$50 weekly / $200 monthly
$100 weekly / $400 monthly
$175 weekly / $700 monthly
$350 weekly / $1,400 monthly
In some cases, those rates could be hourly.
The balance between what your CPA is worth versus what you can afford is a tricky deal to seal. Plus, it generally does not reduce the work that needs to be done: accurate accounting, properly filed tax returns, payroll, among other things such as tax planning strategies, having an invaluable business partner, and advice that could keep entrepreneurs on the cutting edge of compliance and profitability.
It’s a challenge – I agree. However, we’re affordable. Retain your personal CPA today!
