My Fees and Charges

 Fees correct as at  January 2018

This is rare, an Accountant who actually quotes his fees.

Accountants often shroud their fees in secrecy and hide behind the "every business is different" excuse. Of course every business is different but let's be honest in many ways they are the same. They have turnover, expenses and hopefully make a profit.

The fees I quote naturally assume a competent bookkeeping and record keeping system but include everything you would want with no hidden extras and the price is all inclusive to include year-end Accounts, Tax Return & tax calculations and unlimited e-mail / phone assistance. There is no VAT or other charges to add on.

If I complete the record keeping for you this will be done using a Cloud based record keeping system enabling the business to be ready for the HMRC reporting changes coming in 2019 and 2020. 

 If you fit the description above you will pay the figure quoted but if you feel your circumstances are different, either smaller (however much smaller) or larger and you would like an individual quote get in touch using the form on the contact page and I will be delighted to give you the cost. 

I meet my clients at my place or at yours and I don't charge for these visits or meetings. There is never any obligation and if I can help you I will even deal with the cross-over from your previous accountant.


Put simply this is honest, professional accountancy at a sensible, fair and transparent cost.


MONTHLY FEES - Effective for new clients from January 2018

I ask for low monthly payments soon after you join me. My fees are listed clearly so you can see them on this page.  My monthly fixed fees are charged per month of trading that I deal with. If you join me a while after your accounting period end, I may need to charge you a little more per month for a short while to catch up. All fees are collected by Direct Debit.

You may be part of the way through your accounting year or are using an ‘offline’ bookkeeping system. Don’t worry, I can take over at any time, from any system. If completely necessary, e.g. if your records aren’t tidy or computerised, I may need to charge you more than my published monthly fixed fees for the first year . 

Also if completely necessary, I may need to charge you more per month initially, or a one-off fee to ‘catch-up’ with your accounts. For example, I may need to ask for double the normal fees shown on the above form for the first six months, or for a full year up front. 

It really depends upon your own individual circumstances and you will always know and agree the fee before I start.
