A good accountant for small businesses?

accounting ledgerRebecca emails:

Just wondering if you could ask readers if they have any suggestions for tax preparers/accountants who are familiar with small businesses/sole proprietors? Thanks!

We've had a question before about accountants, but that was for personal taxes. Things can get a bit more (or a lot) more complicated when you have a small business.

Got a suggestion for Rebecca? Please share!

I heard the car talk guys promoting their accountant, Marge Inoferror. Perhaps you can hire her?

Great guy. Honest. Does a great job and quickly.

Danielle Bridger from Accurate & Affordable Accounting is a brilliant accountant. I have been in business for 8 months with her at my side since day one. My daily accounting is seamless, she does a lot of work remotely from her own computer. Tax preparation was easy (at least on my end) and her rates are very reasonable. Many of my friends and family have also used her this tax season and all have been pleased.

danbrid6@aol.com or 518-320-5479 to reach her!!

I've used Joe O'Brien (518) 383-9110 for a couple of different not-for-profits, as well as some other business stuff and he has been great. In fact, he corrected some mistake of our prior accountants. He is really good about educating new business people too.

Marvin and Co is a great accounting firm, and they have people dedicated to different sized accounts and different financial functions. I highly recommend them. http://marvincpa.com/

thanks AOA readers--I knew I could count on you.

Judy Dievendorf at Dievendorf & Co. is the sweetest woman on the planet. She has quality, cost-effective accounting services, and she's a helluva listener. I used to joke that she missed her calling as a guidance councilor, but she sure does make an excellent accountant instead. New clients also get 5% off.
