Frequently Asked Questions
What will it cost?
All our services and options are priced up front so you know in advance what your fee will be. You sign off and engage us before we begin work. This way, there are no surprises and you can build your accounting costs into your budget. Most accounting firms work with time sheets and charge you for how long it has taken to complete your work. Why reward us for taking longer?
Can I pay my fees monthly?
Yes, we appreciate that it’s often better for most businesses to pay a little each month rather than a lump sum up front.
What if I need extra work done or something comes up that I hadn’t anticipated?
Just call us, there is no ticking clock. We do not charge you for answering your calls. If your situation has changed and we need to do work outside the scope of the original agreement, then we will either draft up a new agreement to take the extra work into account or if it’s a once off, a singular agreement may be drawn up to cover the specific situation. Either way, you will know in advance what the final cost will be before we begin so there are no surprises.
You mean I can call you to ask your advice about when to buy new equipment or how to depreciate it, for example, without being charged extra?
Yes! To help you, we need to know you and your business. Many business owners make costly mistakes simply because they didn’t call their accountant for advice. You will only be charged if we are required to do extra work outside the scope of our original agreement.
