Value based fees
Our fees are value based. Unlike some firms, we do not discount our first year fees in order to win the on-going work and then seek to artificially increase the fees in future years.
We do not charge separately for small ad hoc telephone/email queries. If a query is more involved then we will agree the scope and a separate fee before undertaking the work.
Our culture is one of client service, providing responsive service at a highly experienced level. We do not aim to minimise costs by providing lower levels of client service. We believe that our high level of client service provides value for money to our clients.
Our fees are based on the time required by the individuals assigned to the engagement charged at each individual’s standard rate. Our fee estimate will be confirmed by the execution of an engagement letter.
The initial start-up audit cost of any engagement is not billed or built into the on-going fee structure. We write this cost off as our investment in getting to know you in detail and setting up our audit approach for the future
