Initial Consultation

The first consultation is free of charge.


Every client’s needs are different and our service is individually tailored for each client, therefore the fees for the first 6 months are calculated on a time basis of £30 per hour.  Upon request, after 6 months we can review your account and provide you with a fixed monthly fee. Your account will then be reviewed every 6 months and the monthly fee adjusted according to the amount of work we are processing.  You can either return to the time based billing of £30 per hour or accept the new fixed fee (your account will be reconciled and any amounts owed to/by us will be included on your invoice).

Extended Managment Reports

To provide the extended management reports £60 per hour.

VAT and CIS Returns

Submission of VAT returns and CIS returns to HMRC will not incur additional fees if we are engaged to handle your bookkeeping.

VAT Registration

To register for VAT with HMRC will cost £350.  (Submission of VAT returns is included within the bookkeeping fee above).

Amendments to Payroll

  • Amendments to payrolls, including adding new staff after a payroll has been run, will attract the fees stated above. For example, if you take on a new employee in May and do not send us their starter forms before the pay run we will be unable to include them on the payroll.  If you subsequently send the forms in June we can add them to the payroll and run their pay for the May period, the cost for this will be £45 (£15 to add him to the payroll + £30 to run the payroll, provide the payslip, inform you of the tax liability and submit the FPS to HMRC).
