One of the resources missing (until NOW) was the ability for employers and small businesses to find online accounting professionals. There are plenty of websites available to find standard bookkeepers, standard accountants, and standard tax preparers - however, Home Team Accounting is now the first directory dedicated to online accounting professionals.
Employers: If you are looking for an accountant that specializes in working with their clients online please look in the directory below to contact an accountant.
Accountants: If you aren’t listed yet, register (http://www.hometeamaccounting.com/

About the author:
I helped found a startup in Austin, Texas in 1998. Besides the general business and operating side, I also did the books which was my introduction into accounting. While I had taken college courses in accounting, as we know, actual accounting and theoretical accounting are sometimes worlds apart. I have been doing accounting ever since, in both private industry and public accounting.
My journeys took me from Austin to Denver where I currently reside. In Denver, I learned the waxing and waning in the life of an accountant. I’ve been in accounting departments in the private industry where month-end always had a week or two of intensive work, but the rest of the month was left without much to do. There was an art to passing the time to make the not busy parts of the month go by as quickly and painlessly as possible.
After private industry, I started working for a CPA firm that was located in downtown Denver. Like most public and nonpublic accounting firms, the bosses worked me so much during tax season I had no clue how I was going to get all the things done that needed to get done. The partners and senior management were always yelling, cursing and really just not nice. But at least I was busy. The worst was summer time, I still had to show up at the office for 9 hours every day even though I had only about an hour worth of work.
I’ll confess I had the worst boss ever (he was the tax partner) when I was in public accounting. If you think yours is worst you can email me your stories and I’ll send you some of mine and we can compare. Let me just say, I can empathize with all of my fellow accountants out there that have to suck it up to a partner, controller, CFO or any other accounting authority figure. It’s not good for the health to be around people like that.
I hope the products and services I sell on my website will help you achieve a sense of freedom, health, and income, as good (and hopefully) better than before. And you can work on your own terms, when you want (but you’ll still have to answer to your clients’ needs).
I aim to help other bookkeepers, accountants and CPAs work completely online, whether from your home office or regular office. The goal is to harness the powers of available technology to take our profession to the next, connected level. I get emails every week from accountants throughout the United States that want to be able to work online while not giving up their decent (sometimes good) salary. I know there are many bookkeeping, accounting and certified public accounting firms that are losing clients because clients find it much more convenient to do everything online. I would like to share my knowledge and experience to help you work online. Please feel free to connect with me on Linkedin (http://www.linkedin.com/
