Advice when you need it - without extra cost...

Upfront Pricing 

All our projects are priced upfront. This means you know ahead of time what it is going to cost and can even pay monthly to improve cash flow. No huge hourly rate or massive end of year bill.

Strategy Meetings Included

We believe in helping your business grow. Because of this, we include strategy meeting in all our standard accounting packages to ensure you understand your accounts and highlight opportunities for growth or sale / succession planning if you are looking to move on.

Unlimited email and phone contact within the scope of your proposal

Other accountants charge for every minute on the phone. We think unlimited email and phone contact is a good idea. It is quite simple, we are here to help and often 5min talking something through beforehand can save you considerable time and money further down the track.

What if my questions are about a new business or something outside of my proposal?

If the discussion is in relation to a new project or something outside of the scope of your current proposal we will provide an outline or get your approval prior to starting work on it. For all new activities we offer a free scoping meeting to ensure we can provide an accurate service outline to help you achieve your objective.
