Project Description


I am starting a new business and I would like help with the Accounting.

I have had a self-employment type business for a long time and have managed it ok.

However, I am starting a new "real" business (inventory, cogs, employees, sales tax etc.) and I would like some help doing the bookkeeping/accounting. I am planning at present to use Xero online accounting system.

I will probably do a lot of the actual work myself (unless I get busy) but I need someone who can simply help and answer questions for me when I need that.

Experience in Xero is a plus.

I would expect the person to bill a reasonable hourly rate and be available for a full hour for every hour billed. (In other words, none of this minimum billing of 15 minutes stuff whereby you answer a question in 2 minutes and I lose a 15 minute increment against a one hour payment.) Purchasing 1 hour gets me 1 hour of time usable in 1 minute increments.

I also plan to run my own payroll and would like assistance with that as needed (I do have some experience with it though.)

In case it matters, I am a US based LLC operating for tax purposes as an S-CORP.
