AccountAbility supports both permanent and contract lighter-level accounting & finance needs, including accounts payable, accounts receivable/collections, payroll, data entry, staff accountant/bookkeeper and much more.

What markets do AccountAbility Staffing and Taylor White serve?
Both of our divisions serve clients in the broader Tampa Bay market, including Pasco, Hillsborough, Pinellas, Polk & Sarasota/Manatee counties.

Additionally, we have a dedicated team focused specifically on the Sarasota/Bradenton market.
What if I don’t have an Accounting or Finance degree or background?
The majority of our focus is indeed accounting & finance related. However, Taylor White is able to conduct contingent or retained searches for our clients seeking top talent from different functional disciplines. Recruiting experts with specific hands-on exposure to executive administration, human resources, sales & marketing, operations, IT and more can be employed to conduct searches for candidates that meet your needs.
We are always interested in connecting with great talent and will do our best to provide referrals or market insights to those that we may not be in the best position to help.
