No! We offer fixed fees linked to the value of our service. We do not claim to be the cheapest but neither are we the most expensive and we offer excellent value for money. Most importantly we never undertake work without agreeing the fee in advance so you always know where you stand.
- How easy is it to change accountants and why should I change?
If your existing accountant is offering you an excellent service at a fair fee then stick with them. However, different accountants will save you different amounts of tax and provide different levels of business advice. If your present accountant doesn't offer the type of service you want, then changing to Haigh Hudson is very easy. All we need is a letter of authority from you and we will take care of everything else. Your existing accountant is not usually allowed to charge you for providing the normal handover information.
- You seem to offer a lot. Are your fees expensive?
- I've just had my accounts done and don't need an accountant until next year, so is there any need to contact you now?
We can't emphasise enough the importance of tax planning at an early stage. Ideally you should do tax planning before the year even starts but after that, the earlier the better. The same applies to all our services that help you plan for the future.
- Will you come to visit us for an initial consultation?
Yes. It often helps to see your business, books and records at first hand and we are always happy to invest our time without charge, to show you what we can do. Of course, if you prefer to visit us, that's fine too.
- How soon can you come to see us?
Just call and let us know a convenient time and we'll do our utmost to fit in. If you need to see an accountant urgently we will always arrange to see you very quickly.
- Is your fixed quote guaranteed for more than one year?
We want to develop long term relationships with our clients and always quote what we regard as a fair fee and only anticipate normal inflationary increases if the work stays the same. Occasionally there may be a reason why the amount of work involved exceeds that which was expected and if this were the case we would discuss this with you. In some cases, where it is clear exactly what work is involved we can guarantee the fee for more than one year.
- You seem to be offering so much that I'm just not used to from my present accountant. How do I know you will deliver?
As accountants we are naturally cautious and so we are very confident of our ability to deliver. Our existing clients are used to receiving our high levels of service and you are more than welcome to speak with some of them.
