Pricing

Pricing

As a small yet dedicated accounting practice, pricing is highly competitive. Even with our fees that can be less than half than those quoted by larger firms, we do not compromise on the quality of service. With over 25 years of experience; you can be assured of great service. Our client retention rate speaks for itself.

Our standard procedure is to assess your requirements and give you a fixed quote for you to consider before proceeding. If the work will be conducted on an hourly or daily rate, we provide an initial estimate of the cost and remain transparent and open throughout.

Our initial consultation is of course free and does not commit you to our services. We can do this either by telephone or a face-to-face meeting.

Our service will take the stress and inconvenience out of taxes. Taking the headache out of your financial affairs will leave you more time to focus on developing your business.

Since we operate a smaller practice, our service is more personal than that of a larger, more mainstream firm. Larger firms may be more formal and rigid; we are more suited to smaller businesses. The bottom line is that at Aston Black, you will be treated as an individual, with the same staff handling your accounts every year.

If you are looking to change your existing accountant, or are hiring one for the first time, we can help.

Fill in the request a free call back form for a free, no-obligation consultation and quote estimate.
