Cost of our services

Our fees are computed on the basis of time spent on a client's affairs by partners and staff and the level of skills and responsibility that the work involves.

We are conscious that our business relationships with our clients will only continue if fees are at a level which, whilst including a profit for this firm, represent excellent value for money to our client. We much prefer to develop and maintain a long term business relationship with our clients than to make a quick and big profit out of a client who remains with us for only a short term. Our fee structure is set accordingly.

Our aim is to provide a first class service that gives value for money and helps our clients to achieve their goals in business.

However, it can often be difficult to forecast in advance the amount of time that will be required to undertake work. This can be for a variety of reasons including the quality of books and records provided and the ease or otherwise with which reconciliations and checks can be performed. This can make it difficult to give a fixed price for work.

Nevertheless we always give new clients a written quote of what we expect the fees we will charge them to be. We are able to offer an accountancy and taxation service tailored to your requirements. The charges we make are based on the amount of work we do. As we operate a menu pricing system you can pick and chose what work you want us to do and what you feel you can tackle yourself.

Furthermore, our experience over many years has shown that certain jobs can be quoted for either on a fixed price or on a price guide basis. Where this is possible we do so. Some of these types of work and the associated charges are shown below.
