I have a growing accounting practice and have had trouble finding competent help in my area. Obviously trying to fill a part time role is tough as people with great skills aren't interested and I don't have time to teach someone with absolutely no experience how to do accounting.
This would be a great opportunity for an accountant looking to make some extra money on the side. At this point, I could provide a steady 20 hours of work each month.
If growth continues like it has the past few months, the position could evolve to full time by the beginning of 2017.
-Maintain books for small businesses using QuickBooks Online and Xero (If not already, you would need to get certified in both softwares).
-Specifically, you would be coding transactions, adjusting GL to match payroll reports, reconciling bank and CC accounts, making adjusting journal entries, adjusting loan balances to match amortization schedules, etc.
-Some clients try to DIY and then we clean up at month end, others don't touch the accounting records at all and we provide an after the fact service.
-All work processes and document management is completely cloud based, so reliable internet access and a decent working laptop would be all that you would have to provide.
-Good knowledge of basic accounting principals with some GL experience under your belt (I'm not going to completely train you).
-$20 -$40/hr depending on experience and efficiency. After working together for a while, I'm fine with paying you a set amount per client each month as you build speed (obviously this percentage would exceed your hourly rate).
Feel free to comment if interested. If seeking detailed info that I probably wouldn't want to post publicly, please PM me.
