Fees

We usually charge based on the time spent to complete the work and the level of experience necessary. We can however offer a fixed fee quote for account preparation and will honour this quote in the first year after which it will be reviewed. If the time spent exceeds the quote we will honour the quote and contact you to discuss the cost in future years. If the time spent is less then we invoice less. We do however have areas where we have fixed fees and list below the costs you are likely to encounter.

Vat return preparation
Payroll services

Partnerships - Services likely to be required

Partnerships may require the same services as a sole trader but each partner is required to complete a tax return and the partnership itself has to complete a partnership return. So if a partnership has two partners three tax returns will need to be completed.
It is worth noting that where tax returns are not submitted for a partnership then both partners each get a £100 fine for non submission and then each get a £100 fine for non submission of a partnership return – a massive £400 fine that is avoidable if the deadline is met.

PAYROLL CHARGES


HMRC are adopting a new approach to operating PAYE and in doing so all PAYE information is required to be reported in real time - RTI (Real Time Information).
Taking into account the extra work involved and increased software costs, we have adopted a standard and simplified approach to our charges.


MONTHLY PAYROLL
For the first employee a standard fee of £15.00 per month will be charged. Each additional employee will be charged at a standard fee of £5.00 per month.

Example:
1 employee = £15.00 per month
3 employees = (£15.00 x 1) + (£5.00 x 2) = £25.00 per month
7 employees = (£15.00 x 1) + (£5.00 x 6) = £45.00 per month


WEEKLY PAYROLL
For the first employee a standard fee of £21.00 per month will be charged. Each additional employee will be charged at a standard fee of £11.00 per month.

Example:
1 employee = £21.00 per month
3 employees = (£21.00 x 1) + £11.00 x 2) = £43.00 per month
For employers with more than 3 employees please contact us for a quote


CONTRACTOR RETURNS
The completion and submission of Contractor Returns will be charged at £10 per month

All prices are exclusive of VAT which will be charged at the prevailing rate (currently 20%).

WHAT IS INCLUDED IN OUR FIXED CHARGES:
• The setting up of a payroll scheme (if required)
• Provision of payslips for all employees including a payroll summary
• Calculation of tax and national insurance deductions due to HMRC (either monthly or quarterly)
• Entering new employees and processing leavers
• Calculation of statutory payments (sick pay, maternity pay, paternity pay)
• Implementing any wage adjustments (e.g. CSA deductions or those by Court Order)
• Provision of P60s at the tax year end for the employees retention


WHAT WE REQUIRE YOU TO DO:

• Provide us with the necessary information for the wages to be prepared, particularly if they change on a regular basis
• Ensure this information is received in good time prior to the payroll processing date
• Respond promptly to any requests for information


Our charges will generally be invoiced on a quarterly basis.

Various payment options are available. You may wish to set up a standing order to spread the cost throughout the year.
