The fee we quote in our proposal is not a fixed fee and our billing philosophy remains the same. We believe that the fairest way to bill is to charge for the actual amount of time spent on the engagement.
Research shows that over half of accounting firms are currently charging their clients a fixed fee. They are simply charged as much as they are willing to pay.
We absolutely disagree with this approach and believe our way of charging is fairer and far more ethical.
If we’re able to do our job quicker because your information is presented neatly and provided responsively, we believe you should receive the benefit through a lower fee.
