Our services cost from as little as £9.90 per week plus £2.99 for extensive insurance. For maximum tax efficiency, rather than us charging you a fee, you simply discount your charge rate to allow for these costs.

Even after these costs, we find properly managing expenses and tax returns will leave you with a profit compared to managing your own tax affairs.
