Frequently asked questions

Here are some of our most common questions

I am not sure if I need a book keeper?

We do varying levels of bookkeeping, ranging from daily involvement with the business and processing of transactions to providing monthly summaries and reconciliations. We will always endeavour to ensure you are given the best advice on how to proceed with your book keeping and this is best done via an appointment

What areas do you cover?

Although based in Scarborough and Hunmanby we have clients throughout the Yorkshire region. Additionally, as a result of the increasing use of electronic communications and postal services we are able to offer our services to clients around the UK and overseas.

Do you have experience in my field of business?

With over 30 years’ experience we have a diverse skill set and worked with a variety of entities in many industries. 

What are your payment terms?

Our standard terms are 21 days upon receipt of invoice. We can offer a monthly payment plan in advance of an agreed annual fee to help you with your cash flow. Please contact us for a no obligation consultation.

How much will this cost me?

In most cases we do not charge an hourly rate, our prices are based on the job itself. We understand everyone is different but as a guide price we charge the following:

  • From £120.00 + VAT – Simple Tax Return
  • From £250.00 + VAT – Tax return and small set of accounts
  • From £600.00 + VAT – Limited company accounts

 On our initial meeting we will have a review of your requirements to give a more accurate quote. 

What if I struggle for time to see my accountant?

We understand how busy life can be. That is why we offer appointments at a time and place convenient to you. We can arrange for early morning, evenings and weekend appointments.

What if I already have an accountant, how do I change?

We do the work for you. The process is simple and involves us writing a courtesy letter to your existing accountant requesting the transfer of information
