Accounting Costs

I recently received a quote from a local accountant with a good rep to do my books.
Included are all interactions with irs (taxes, payroll, sales tax etc)
She wants $150 a month during busy season and in the winter when it is slower she said she would lower it some or if we closed for a month she would not charge.

Is this a reasonable price...

My last business was $600 a year for quarterly taxes and end of year returns, but I had no payroll or sales tax with that business.

Would love some opinions on solutions to accounting and fair prices
thanks guys

sounds cheap to me. I pay more than that for just payroll with ADP.

Not bad if they're doing EVERYTHING including payroll checks.

Sometimes cheap is not the best option. Tax preparation and general accounting is a half-measure to getting ahead.

Generally speaking tax planning is what moves your operation into the future. The service field owners need to optimize what may have started as a hobby business and advance it into a traditional business model.

Tax planning and said advice will allow you to optimize tax exemptions and plan purchases based on the code and revenues.

My .02 cents is do not just pay for accounting and or tax preparation and get the tax planning too as without it every year just may look the same on paper.

Definition of insanity; doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different outcome.
