What is BIDaWIZ? [Top of Page]
BIDaWIZ is an online marketplace for accounting and tax advice and services provided by accountants.

Why Choose BIDaWIZ? [Top of Page]
There are lots of places to ask questions online, but BIDaWIZ is your only source for reliable answers from licensed business professionals. It is also the only online marketplace to ask questions before hiring a professional for a full service engagement (i.e. tax preparation, auditing). We founded BIDaWIZ to fill this need at an affordable price and in a fast, convenient manner.

Traditionally, obtaining professional advice and services was expensive and time consuming. You were forced to travel, schedule meetings and engage in "phone tag", all without the guarantee of truly reliable information. BIDaWIZ provides a better way, giving you access to licensed and verified business professionals and the answers and services you need, tailored to your specific issues.

How much does it cost? [Top of Page]
Professionals will answer your questions for FREE for a limited period of time. We and the professional provide the advice portion of the service for free for a limited period of time to help potential client identify the best professional for their needs.

What if my question has multiple parts or I have multiple questions relating to the same topic? [Top of Page] Feel free to submit questions with multiple parts or multiple questions in the text box provided.

How long does it take to get an answer? [Top of Page]
Time of delivery will be determined by the complexity of the question, but in general, the Professionals make every effort to answer your questions quickly, in minutes or hours, rather than days.

Are my questions, answers and service requests accessible by other customers? [Top of Page]
That is up to you. When you submit your questions, there will be an option to publicly display your questions in the Knowledge Base for existing and new users to benefit from in the future. If you choose not to display your questions, we will not show any information publicly. However, all job service requests are kept 100% confidential for the following reasons

  • In traditional engagements, accountants keep all information relating to you confidential. We believe that BIDaWIZ users are entitled to the same level of confidentiality.
  • If you paid for a service, then only you should be able to benefit from it.
Selecting a Professional(s)

Do I have access to Professional profiles? Can I submit a question or service request to a specific Professional? [Top of Page]
Once a Professional submits an offer of service, you'll have access to view that Professional's licensure(s), education, years of work experience, the number of questions they've answered on BIDaWIZ, their average rating for previous answers and any other information they provide. Keep in mind that you can select more than 1 Professional.

Rating System

Why is there an Professional rating system? [Top of Page]
Although BIDaWIZ verifies the licensure(s) and education to ensure the Professionals' backgrounds are accurate, we believe that customer reviews are an important tool to measure the quality of service of each Professional. After all, this is a unique format for receiving answers and services, and includes factors like timeliness, completeness of the answer or work and ease of understanding the answer or the completed work. Each transaction ends with a very quick and simple Rate-A-Professional process so we can track each customer's overall experience with that Professional. Customers also have access to these ratings in their customer account after an Professional has submitted a message or offer.
