• Q. I’ve been using the same accounting and tax service for years. Why would I switch services when I think the current accountants are doing a fine job?

    A. Most of our clients had an accounting or bookkeeping service before they switched to Fuel Accountants. So why do they switch instead of sticking with their past providers?

  • Q. Do I still need an accountant or bookkeeper if I use Xero?

    A. One of the allures of cloud accounting is that it makes keeping your accounting records more accessible.  Entering payables, managing receivables and reconciling your bank account are now effortless.  It does make you wonder whether you even need an accountant or bookkeeper at all these days!

    A. We understand that many companies have a fairly simplistic or bare bones method of doing the books, paying bills, handling taxes and compliance. And that while these systems may not achieve the most impact on your bottom line…they are very inexpensive. But, we would like you to think about this by way of example: Let’s say your bookkeeping or accounting costs you $1,000 a year. Affordable for almost any business. But what if you’ve been overpaying taxes by $3,000 a year due to the lack of utilizing every 100% legal tax savings strategy you aren’t utilizing now. And let’s add to the example that you’ve been…
