In my first year i am planning on grossing around 50 grand. I plan on doing about 50/50 resi/com. I do not think i really need to hire an accountant. How hard can it be. Does every single company in existance need one. If so maybe i should switch my major to become an accountant. I have quickbooks and I am using the cash method. Seems pretty simple. Will an accountant save me money or just be a burden?
