Service Plans: Certainty for Clients

As a response to client demands and the market place, we have reviewed the services we currently offer clients and have incorporated them into three types of services plans. These can be modified for each client and additional services can be added on.

These plans are inclusive of and based on Xero software and our ability to take your work right through to final published Financial Statements on Xero. No more journals from your accountant to input!

Our clients know what they are getting and at what price. With payments made by monthly direct debit, clients can manage their cash-flow with no surprises when the accounts are finalised.

We are happy to assist clients with determining which plan is suitable and will provide the best platform for clients to manage their businesses.

For new clients we will discuss your needs but we won’t put you on the cheapest plan just to get your business – we have your business foremost in our minds and want to offer the best plan for you.

With all Xero packages we organise the set up for you and make sure you have adequate training – we don’t leave you floundering! The setup and training are extra but prices are known up front.

Clients using MYOB can also discuss a modified plan for them as well.

Please have a look at our three-column comparison to determine which plan would suit your company’s needs.
