How much will it cost you to use our services?

We charge our clients on a time-for-work basis. Whilst we have a set fee for a basic tax return and some other services, generally speaking you will be billed based on how long it takes to do your work. We see that as the fairest way to go for both us and our clients.

Our charge out rates range from $85 per hour for a junior accountant up to a Partner Premium rate of $195 per hour. Our average rate works out to be around $115 per hour.

At all times we endeavour to ensure that our clients don’t get a rude surprise when receiving a bill from us. We like to advise our clients of an approximate cost for their work to be done, and if it looks like it will end up costing more than that amount, the relevant team member will contact the client direct and discuss the situation with them accordingly. It is a bit like getting your car serviced – they give you a quote and if they find more work that needs to be done then they call you beforehand to get your authorisation to go on.
