Frequently Asked Questions

These are a few of the more common questions we get asked by prospective clients considering using our services...

How easy is it to change accountants and why should I change?
If your existing accountant is offering you an excellent pro-active service at a fair fee then stick with them. However, different accountants will save you different amounts of tax and provide different levels of business advice. If your present accountant doesn't offer the type of service you want and that we do offer, then changing over to us is very easy. It involves just one letter from you and we take care of everything else for you. Your existing accountant is not usually allowed to charge you for providing normal handover information.

You seem to offer a lot. Are your fees expensive?
No! We usually offer fixed fees linked to the value of what we provide. We're not always the cheapest and as with many things in life the cheapest may turn out to be the most expensive in the long run. However, we are not expensive and we offer excellent value for the service that we provide. Most importantly we never undertake work without agreeing the fee arrangements in advance so you always know where you stand.

I've just had my accounts done and don't need an accountant until next year, so is there any need to contact you now?
We can't over emphasise the importance of tax planning at an early stage instead of providing crisis driven advice at a late stage. Ideally you would do your tax planning before the year even starts but after that, the earlier the better. The same is applicable to all areas of advice and we are committed to helping you change the future and not just reporting what has already happened.

Will you come to visit us for an initial consultation
Yes. It often helps to see your business, books and records, etc at first hand and we are always happy to invest our time without charge to show you what we can do. Of course, if you would prefer to visit us, that's fine too.

When and how soon can you come to see us?
When's good for you? Let us know and we'll do our utmost to help. If you need to see somebody urgently, we're always out and about and can arrange to see you very quickly. We can also come and see you in the evening and at weekends - whatever suits you best.
