How does your pricing work?

All our pricing is fixed, agreed in advance and paid via direct debit. And for those that qualify we offer a 12 month payment plan at no extra cost where we spread the costs of the year’s services over 12 equal instalments.

Each year we will send you a new proposal with updated pricing and schedule of services.

Should you require additional services in the period we will provide you with a proposal for those services before we do any work. That way you are always in control.

What happens after we enquire?

After you submit an enquiry we will organise a time to for a free video meeting or phone call at a time suitable for us both. This meeting can go up to 30 minutes long and is a chance for us both to get to know each other, find out what you are looking for and whether we are a good fit for each other.

If we both agree that we can work well together and deliver you the outcomes you are looking for, we will provide you with a proposal for our services which will outline the services, costs involved and our terms and conditions. Once that is accepted there are some compliance requirements we need to satisfy such as ID verification and tax agent linking on the business portal. But we will outline all that in detail once that time comes.

Do you do individual tax returns?

We only do individual tax returns for those individuals who are part of a business group (e.g the shareholders/directors) we do the accounting for, and for those with substantial investments and investment structures such as family trusts or self-managed super funds.

How do you work with clients?

We work with our clients through a combination of email, phone, video and if the case requires it, face to face meetings.
