Our fees

One of the greatest concerns of anyone using the services of a professional firm is cost. While there may be some truth in the old adage ‘you only get what you pay for’, professional fees seem to rise exponentially with the size of firm. Having experienced the inner workings of much larger firms, we are acutely aware that it is very easy for partners to become distanced from their clients.

With separate departments such as marketing, human resources, specialist tax and financial planning and a whole host of other services which clients rarely need, overheads mushroom. However, they all have to be paid for and the cost is loaded across the board, not just on those who use them.

Ever wondered who pays for the glossy brochures, the ‘free’ seminars or the constant round of entertainment for potential new clients and other introducers? By staying small we aim to provide good value whilst having access to independent expert advice when needed.

We also recognise that clients are wary of open ended arrangements, loosely based on time spent at varying rates per hour, with unexpected bills dropping through the letterbox on a monthly or even weekly basis. We will always discuss the scope of the work to be undertaken with you before starting and give a firm estimate of the cost. Of course assignments sometimes do go beyond that originally planned but we will always discuss with you the cost of any extra work and only proceed once this is agreed with you.
