Frequently Asked Questions

What's the difference between hiring a bookkeeper vs. an accountant or CPA for my trade business?

Bookkeepers, accountants, and CPAs all have similar and sometimes overlapping skill sets, but they may have different credentials. Here’s a quick breakdown:

Bookkeeper

Your bookkeeper’s #1 goal is to support the success of your business by keeping your finances in order. This is especially important in the trades where material costs may fluctuate, cash flow can be inconsistent, and job scope can quickly change. A bookkeeper’s primary tasks are to track and categorize transactions, reconcile accounts, and to provide monthly or quarterly financial reports so you can understand the financial health of your business.

CPA

A CPA (Certified Public Accountant) has passed a qualifying licensing exam that allows them to offer strategic financial advice and consulting services to clients. All CPAs are accountants, but not all accountants are CPAs. Some CPAs offer bookkeeping and tax services, but not all do. For general bookkeeping and tax fling, a CPA generally isn’t necessary for most small businesses. A bookkeeper and/or an Enrolled Agent can keep the books and handle taxes, and they usually do so at a more affordable rate than hiring a CPA.

Accountant

An accountant is a general term for a professional who is responsible for maintaining and reviewing financial records.

Hiring All Trades Tax for bookkeeping services comes with a built-in Enrolled Agent with extensive background knowledge of the trades. This means we offer both bookkeeping and expert tax prep services in a single business.

What kind of businesses do you work with?

We work with anyone in the trades and construction industries. We’ve worked with contractors (plumbers, electricians, drywall specialists, HVAC pros, etc.), remodeling experts, custom home builders, real estate management companies, and several other businesses that revolve around the trades and construction arenas.

What kind of accounting software do you use?

We use Quickbooks Online, a cloud-based accounting software that automatically imports your business transactions.

Do you offer Quickbooks training?

We don’t offer comprehensive software training, but we can offer mini-tutorials explaining how to accomplish simple tasks in your Quickbooks system.

How do you access my company's books?

You can send me a direct invite to access your books from your Quickbooks account.

What are your credentials?

I am an Enrolled Agent licensed by the IRS to represent taxpayers before the federal government. Gaining the EA credential requires passing a comprehensive examination. I am also a QuickBooks Certified ProAdvisor, an Intuit Certified Bookkeeping Professional, and a member of the Digital Bookkeepers Association. Our highly qualified team of bookkeepers is also equipped to handle your books following the All Trades standardized bookkeeping process.
