What makes Scooter different?
We’re an online accounting firm that specializes in working with small businesses.
Do you work with any other systems besides Quickbooks?
No, sorry! We switched completely to QuickBooks Online and QuickBooks Self-Employed because we feel they’re the best all-around choices for our customers.
what are your hourly rates?
Our standard rates are $60/hour for bookkeeping and general accounting, $90/hour for cleanup work and system design/setup/conversions, and $120/hour for tax and CPA services. However, in most cases we try to scope a project up front, figure out how much work is involved, and then provide a fixed price for our services.
can you do personal tax returns?
Yes, we prepare personal and business tax returns for most of our customers (they usually go hand in hand).
Are you the right firm for me?
Great question! Our ideal customers are business owners who are a) looking for professional accounting on a part-time basis, b) not interested in hiring an employee or building their own accounting department, and c) tech-savvy and comfortable with the cloud. If that sounds like you, 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.”
