How much do you charge?

Do you charge by the hour?
No we don’t as long as you are on one of our monthly packages.
We believe that charging by the hour promotes inefficiency and clouds our clients’ judgement. In our experience, clients often avoid or hesitate to call us for advice in fear of spending more money. We find that this often results in poor communication between the client and the accountant and ultimately poorer business performance.
Do you offer bookkeeping services?
Yes we do, however these are quoted separately to our monthly pricing plans. Contact us to receive a quote within 48 hours.
How many accountants will I be working with?
Your Client Manager will be your single point of contact for all matters.
