We offer a fixed fee service for our clients’ basic annual accounts, payroll, bookkeeping and taxation work. This fee will be quoted in advance of work being carried out for our new clients.
Our initial meeting with all new clients is always free of charge and our fixed fee incorporates all accounts and taxation work required to prepare accounts and tax returns to enable submissions to HMRC and Companies House.
For extra work, or additional meetings or questions, we calculate the fee based on an hourly rate for the member of staff who carries out that work, multiplied by the hours taken on that work.
We will give clients a quote for extra work where possible. The main exception to this is for HMRC Enquiries as it can be difficult to gauge how long they will take to resolve.
Our fees are charged at an hourly rate per staff member who carries out that work, multiplied by the hours taken on that work. The type and quality of your bookkeeping and the length of time we have to prepare the figures before a deadline, will all have an impact on the fee.
Fees Start from:
- £150 for Property Rental businesses and Income and Expenditure Accounts;
- £200 for Sole Trader businesses where a full set of accounts, a Profit and Loss Account and a Balance Sheet, are prepared;
- £300 for Partnership accounts;
- £400 for Limited Company accounts;
- Payroll fees start from £5 per week for weekly payroll or £10 per month for monthly payroll work;
- £50 per Return for VAT Return preparation;
- £60 for Self Assessment Tax Returns.
All fees quoted are subject to VAT at the Current Standard Rate being charged.

Interest Free Monthly Standing Order
We can offer our smaller clients the opportunity to spread the cost of their accountancy fees over a year by setting up a monthly standing order payment.
This helps your cash flow as clients do not have to pay for their services in one payment.
If your total annual fee is less than £750 including VAT you can setup your standing order payment for one month after the invoice date. Therefore you will only start to pay for work once it has been completed.
If you are an existing client who does not pay by monthly interest free standing order, and you see the benefits of switching to this payment method, please contact us for details.
