Rates

Our standard hourly rates are calculated in accordance with the level of work performed. Lower rates are associated with work performed by our junior and non-professional staff, while the higher rates are associated with work performed by our professional and more senior staff. 

We also have fixed prices for some specific tasks.  Please enquire for further details.

We review all of our charges, including hourly rates, on an annual basis to ensure that parity is maintained with the accounting market.

Payment terms

If you are unable to pay an invoice by the due date, we are more than happy to discuss alternative arrangements to assist in payment of the debt.
