Billing Flexibility

Before we begin any work on your file, we will give you a free consultation appointment and will take you through our engagement process to figure out exactly what work is required on your file and let you know what the cost will be.

 

Traditional Time Billing

Unless otherwise arranged, Traditional Time Billing will apply to your file. This is the standard way that the accounting industry has charged its clients and is calculated based on the number of hours required to work on your file by different skilled staff in our office (accounting hours, bookkeeping hours, admin hours, etc). 

If you select this method of billing, we will provide an estimate of our fees based on how long we think your file will take. Our estimate is not binding and is a guide only. Where the scope of our engagement changes or we anticipate work will take more time we will send an updated estimate of our fees.

 

Monthly Managed Bookkeeping

In situations where we complete comprehensive, full-service bookkeeping and virtual office management for a client, we will negotiate a flat, all-inclusive hourly rate for all types of work regardless of their nature. This type of service is billed monthly in arrears based on the time spent on the file during the preceeding month.

 

Agreed Price Service Plans

To provide a level of surety and security we also offer Agreed Price Service Plans. These are very popular with most of our clients and are fast becoming the norm for many service industries including accounting.

An Agreed Price Service Plan is a set weekly, fortnightly or monthly payment amount based on the standard cost of our work, less a 10% discount. Payments must be made by direct debit or credit card, initiated by us.

Payment from Refund

In some circumstances, we can arrange to take our accounting fees from your income tax refund. An administration fee applies for this service.
