Pricing that Suits
Deeks VAT Consultancy understand how important it is to have certainty about fees for professional services. We will communicate with you every step of the way to avoid any misunderstandings in this regard.
We provide two methods to charge for our services in a way that is fair to our clients and ensures that more businesses can afford to hire expert VAT consultants. Unfortunately, we cannot list prices for our services here on the website as every case is unique and will need to be viewed in isolation to fully understand what is required.
Fixed Priced Services
Many of our clients welcome the opportunity to work with us on a fixed-fee basis. This means that the cost of our services can be agreed at the beginning of the relationship.
The benefits of this approach for you include:
- Knowing at the start of the project what our services will cost you.
- A clear understanding of how we are going to meet your requirements.
- We will always consult you prior to undertaking any additional work.
Depending on your specific requirements, and where there is a clear scope of work, we are usually able to offer a fixed price.
Variable Pricing Methods
Inevitably, there will be occasions when a fixed fee is simply not appropriate. In such circumstances one of the following charging methods will be agreed:
- Time-based fees: based on the complexity of the work and reliance on a third party, such as HMRC.
- Result or Contingency based fees: this is normally a mixture of a fixed fee plus a variable element (the variable element dependent upon the successful outcome of a particular assignment).
- Retainer based fee: a number of hours services are provided on a monthly basis for a set fee.
Please remember when purchasing professional services, you are paying for our experience, which is best illustrated by the following tale:
“There was an aircraft engine that no one could fix. Running out of options, the owners brought in a man with 30 years on the job. He inspected the engine carefully from top to bottom and after looking things over, the man reached into his bag and pulled out a small hammer. He gently tapped on the side of the engine, instantly, the engine lurched into life!
Seven days later the owners of the aircraft received his bill for £10,000 (plus VAT of course). “What?!” the owners exclaimed. “You hardly did anything! How can it be £10,000?! Please send us an itemised bill.”
The man sent the owners his itemised bill which simply said: ‘Tapping With a Hammer – £2’ ‘Knowing Where to Tap – £9,998’.
The moral of the story is that Deeks VAT Consultancy have years of experience, and in the words of Red Adair, an American oil well firefighter:
“If you think it’s expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur.”
