We have several new clients, with fairly straightforward tax affairs, who are finding that their fees have increased over the last year despite little change in their business activity.

With the ‘credit crunch’ people are looking to reduce their outgoings, and also make sure that they are getting good value.

We offer a fixed fee service, and our fees are clearly shown on our website so that there are no nasty surprises after an initial estimate and you can choose the level of assistance you would like, to fit the budget you have in mind.

The two main services we offer are the bronze, where the client provides summary totals for their expenses (many people do this already on excel) and the silver, where you just send us a ‘bag of receipts’ and we sort the whole thing out for you.

In addition, for the self employed, accountancy fees also qualify for tax relief in your next return – reducing the cost.
