Packages & Pricing

How much does a small business Accountant cost?

At Evans & Co Hospitality Accountants we try our best to be as transparent as possible.

The entire accountancy industry is shrouded in mystery; “click here to find out” or “submit your details to receive x, y and z”. In some respects we’re no different- we have the same wording, buttons and forms all over the website.

As aggravating as it is when you’re starting out and just need to know  how much an accountant for a small business costs, one of the main reasons for this is that no two small businesses are the same.

Think of it from your own point of view- let’s say that you’re a plasterer and a client needs a room plastering. They’ve asked you for a price but they’ve not given you anything to go off other than it’s “the living room”- to them this makes perfect sense, but to you it’s very little help as you may have to consider:

  • What is already there

  • The state of the walls underneath

  • Why does the room need plastering? Has it been subjected to years of damp?

  • How big is the job and how long will it take?

Accountancy is no different, some of the questions that we need to know are:

  • Are you a sole trader, limited company or something else?

  • What is your turnover (or expected turnover if you’re a new business) and are you VAT registered?

  • What industry are you in?

  • Do you have any employees and how are you paying yourself?

  • What services do you require? Is it simple self-assessment or End of Year Accounts or is it a whole host of services?

Evidently it is quite difficult to display pricing as there are so many variables to cover. If you require a multitude of services carrying out then please see here for our quote calculator. If you’re a new business and/or what you’re after is relatively simple and you'll be taking care of your own bookkeeping and payroll then take a look at our packages below and feel free to email us with any questions or book in for a free consultation here.

The Fine Print

Dext*

Dext is a receipt capture software that massively reduces the time spent on your accounts when compared with copying everything out into a spreadsheet. You simply upload your receipt or invoice via email, website or mobile app and categorise your upload. At the end of the year it can be downloaded as a CSV to form the basis of your accounts. Dext can also be linked to most accountancy software providers like Xero to publish these documents for reconciliation. If you’d like to know a little bit more about Dext, click here.

 

Email Support*

We’re happy to answer any queries that you have by email in a timely fashion. However, we do understand that some queries necessitate a phone call and whilst we’ll be really happy to talk to you, you’ll have to understand that we’re a business with bills to pay and so a fair usage policy will have to apply. For clients on our basic packages, phone calls in excess of 30 minutes per month will be charged at £20 per hour (or part thereof) plus VAT for any time spent exceeding 30 minutes during the calendar month. This charge will not apply within your first month or during any onboarding calls.
