Other Information

We can provide more information when we meet. We always agree an estimate in writing before starting work. We have a strong track record of avoiding nasty surprises on fees.

All businesses need year end accounts and tax returns. Limited companies and sole traders or partnerships paying staff over the threshold must also operate PAYE. We provide other services depending on a client’s individual preference.

We recommend that all limited companies employ professional advisers. Smaller unincorporated businesses should take initial advice and may then feel comfortable taking care of their own affairs.

Our fee estimates reflect the typical time and level of knowledge required to complete a job, assuming you provide good quality records. Our rates are typically good value compared to our peers because we keep tight control of our overheads.

Our hourly rates are £150 (director), £80 (manager), £60 (assistant manager), £35 (book keeper).
