BIDaWIZ traces its roots back to 2008. As tax, accounting and finance professionals we often encountered clients whose needs were not being adequately met. There was the bookkeeper who lacked the time to research complex accounting issues or needed confirmation of an answer she had arrived at. There was the small business owner who needed an on-call accounting resource, but could not regularly bear the expense of a full time accountant. There was the personal investor who wanted to confirm his accountant’s advice and discuss regulatory changes that could impact his financial or tax planning. There was the accountant, herself an expert, who occasionally needed a resource to fill gaps in her knowledge. At the time, our clients’ only options when seeking answers to tax, accounting and finance questions were costly and time consuming. Lengthy phone calls, high hourly rates and an inability to let the market to determine the most qualified and cost-efficient professionals for the job were the norm.
We founded BIDaWIZ in a desire to address the needs of those who, like our own clients, sought a better solution for their tax, accounting and finance needs. Our guiding principle is that individuals and businesses should have access to high quality, comprehensive professional accounting and finance advice, delivered in an affordable, accessible and easy-to-understand manner.
Whether you’re a bookkeeper, a small business owner, an individual investor or an accountant, BIDaWIZ is your online marketplace for trusted answers from licensed business professionals (“Experts”) with expertise in tax, accounting and finance.
