Our fees are usually calculated by multiplying the amount of time we spend on your affairs by the charge out rate of the person completing the work. Like this, you only pay for the advice and work that we actually perform.

We are always happy to provide you with an estimate in advance and if requested we are happy to agree a fixed fee for the provision of specific services or an indicative range of fees for a particular assignment.

Generally, for once a year type work such as accounts preparation and annual tax compliance, we will invoice you on completion of the work. To assist our clients with their cash flow we are always happy to agree that this annual fee be paid in monthly instalments.

For relationships where we are more actively involved we invoice at the end of the month for the work undertaken during that month.

Scale of standard time charge fees:

Chartered Accountants £115 per hour
Taxation Compliance Manager £95 per hour
Part qualified and experienced accountants £76 per hour
Other members of staff £55 per hour
