I am looking for referrals for a San Francisco-based sole-practitioner accountant or an accountant with a small firm that works with startup companies. I have a friend who, along with a partner, are starting on a shoestring an athletic accessory company in San Fransisco. Their first product is a cross-fit glove that is to be sold via Amazon. The partners are young and need accounting and tax (specifically sales tax) guidance as they launch the company. They are on a tight budget and so are looking for a accountant that would be able to work with them on the fees, by either deferring fees until they ramp up a bit, or by providing a reduced rate.
Your referrals are greatly appreciated. Thank you for your help with this.
