Looking for reference for NYC accountant

Launching company shortly and looking for an external accountant to handle accounting for the first 12-18 months until we're big enough to require internal accounting expertise. One of my co-founders and I will handle the finance duties, and probably could do 90% of the accounting stuff, but the the latter is a non-value-added distraction (above and beyond having a breakdown into our spend and revenues). The actual transactions that need to be managed are fairly simple, and we're using a PEO to handle the HR and payroll stuff. Just need someone to help with the remaining items -- probably a day or two a month (outside of tax season). Would like someone who's familiar with the accounting rules for high-tech service companies in the start-up space, as well as someone who would be able to handle us as we grow.

use Indinero.com. I highly recommend. It's Quickbooks + Bookkeeper + Accountant all rolled into one. --

I'd highly recommend Helen Poon, who's helped me with three of my companies over the past 8 years. She's smart and startupsavvy, and in addition to traditional bookkeeping functions also offers higher-end CFO-type strategic services if you ever need them.

Thanks all. Incidentally, InDinero charges about $800/mo for the basic services for a $1-$2M/yr enterprise, in case anyone is interested in the economics of this.
