What makes Scooter different from other firms?
Three things. First, we're an online firm and do 95% of our work remotely. Second, we only work with small businesses. And third, our favorite product is full-service outsourced accounting (which we call "managed accounting").
Do you work with any other systems besides QuickBooks Online (QBO)?
No, sorry! We switched completely to QBO in 2017 because we decided it's the best choice for most of our customers. If you're using a desktop version of QuickBooks or another accounting system, we'd be happy to help you convert to QBO.
Do you prepare tax returns?
Yes. We're a full-service firm and we provide year-end tax services to most of our clients, including both business and personal tax returns.
Are you the right firm for me?
Great question! Generally speaking, our ideal customers are business owners who a) need professional accounting on a part-time basis, b) don't want to build their own accounting department (they'd rather outsource it), and c) like doing things online. Most of our clients are past the point where they can handle their own books and realize they need some outside help. If that's what you're looking for, you've come to the right place.
When were scooters invented?
Scooters have been around since 1915 and early generation models were manufactured by multiple companies worldwide, including Salsbury and Cushman in the USA. The Piaggio Vespa was introduced in post-World War 2 Italy and became the first globally popular scooter due to its style, maneuverability, and economy. The iconic scooter got its name when Piaggio’s president saw the prototype and remarked, "Sembra una vespa" — “It looks like a wasp.”
