Monthly Fees

A common complaint we hear from clients that come to see us is that their previous accountant has sprung a surprise bill on them, often for services that they did not realise they were getting. Firstly we will agree what services will be provided and offer a monthly fee so that everyone knows where they stand from one month to the next. This means there will be no year-end bill once your accounts are complete so you will know exactly what you will be paying from day one. Ultimately making your financial planning much easier.

“At Warm and Dry PHS, I am used to dealing with whatever curveballs are thrown at me by the vagaries of people’s plumbing and heating systems. I love it, it ticks all the boxes for me: practical, problem-solving deep satisfaction when the job is sorted. Can I say the same about book-keeping and accounts? Not really. To me it is a necessary evil which I would rather not be doing and ideally not even thinking about.

I have recognized for quite some time that I have needed help with this area. I have been looking for the right person to help out. For someone like me who equates anyone working with numbers as the equivalent of a traffic warden or a headmaster, choosing a book-keeper and accountant has been a really big deal.

I needed to feel completely comfortable with the person who was and is going to scrutinise every transaction I make.

I am SO pleased that I have now found that person in Stuart from RSS bookkeeping and accounts. He is so approachable and friendly and was completely unfazed by a suitcase (or two) of paperwork delivered to his doorstep. His pricing structure was very clear from the start so it is easy to budget for and he has calmly and efficiently been putting my financial world to rights.

Great work, Stuart and many thanks. I will recommend you to as many people as I can.
