Our Fees & Packages

We understand that different contractors in different industries prefer to handle their accounts in different ways. That’s why we offer a full range of bespoke accounting packages, so you can be sure to find one that suits your needs

We also recognise that your circumstances can change. As your company grows your accounting needs will probably scale up as well. And if you decide to take a break from contracting, or think that you can handle more of the administration yourself then we can help you move to less comprehensive package of services.

Our contractor packages have been developed from years of experience and with regular feedback from some of our oldest customers who tell us what they value.

  • Same day response service under our client service guarantee
