Fees and charges can be one of the greatest areas of potential misunderstanding between accountant and client and can taint an otherwise successful relationship, and so we have devoted this space to giving an insight into our fee policy.
Our charges are calculated taking into account the specialist knowledge and responsibility required of our partners and staff, the difficulty and complexity of the work, and the time spent by them on the assignment. Fees will normally be invoiced at intervals during the year appropriate to the work undertaken, and are payable within 30 days. In common with standard business practice we reserve the right to charge interest on overdue accounts.
For our part we aim to be as open as possible about our charges and endeavour to ensure that any factors contributing to potential extra or higher fees are brought to the attention of our client as soon as we become aware of them.
You can minimise the time spent on your behalf by keeping accurate and complete records which are made available to us in a timely manner, and by responding promptly to any communications from us, or queries we may have raised. We can offer training to assist in setting up systems to correctly record accounting transactions.
Many clients find that having regular interim invoices, or making payments by regular standing order can be more convenient and beneficial to their budgeting and cash flow, these arrangements can be discussed and agreed with the partner concerned.
