Fixed Price Bookkeeping
Most self-employed bookkeepers will quote you an hourly rate. In fact, the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers (ICB) reportedly recommends a minimum of $60 per hour plus GST. We think that’s a silly way to price, and unfair.
Firstly, an hourly rate means you have no idea how long the job will take and therefore how much it will cost you, until after the work is completed. Secondly, if we make mistakes or take longer, then you pay more. That doesn’t seem right to us……….it’s certainly not fair.
So what we do is give you a fixed price before we start. That way, you can budget and plan. And if we are slow and the work takes longer, then that’s our problem, not yours.
