How much do your Accounting Services cost?
Our fixed cost depends on various factors, such as employees, transaction volume, affecting what the work load of your entire accounting support services require. Our fees will be estimated the best we can upfront, though may be adjusted up or down depending on our first quarter or years work.

How much do your Tax Services cost?
Federal, State, Individual and Small Business Income Tax Returns are charged on a return basis depending on how much time is necessary to complete the tax return. Our fees are typically about 20% less then large tax preparation shops such as H&R Block, and substantially less then a CPA. In addition you are getting a substantially more qualified individual with over 25 years of accounting and tax experience.
Do you no longer provide small business consulting services?
Those of you familar with our company are well aware we provided full onsite consulting, training and troubleshooting on an hourly basis to small businesses between 2004 and 2005 regarding your accounting software implementation.

If you need help selecting and installing accounting systems we do recommend you contact Netmation Inc. For other accounting needs feel free to contact us with your requirements and, if possible, we will recommend services that would be best for your business needs.
