Our Accountancy Fees

We consider our accountancy fees to be extremely reasonable and prior to working with us we provide all clients with a detailed breakdown of exact costs. It’s important that you know what you will be paying and what it’s for.

Most of the businesses and individuals we work with fall under one of our fixed fee schedules, with a monthly payment option, helping you to manage your cashflow. For those that don’t we offer free no obligation quotes, specifically tailored to your needs so please get in touch with us to discuss your requirements and see how we can help. We are friendly, honest.

Proactive also offer a range of other interesting services, including Virtual Finance Director, consultancy and training so if you need something that you don’t see above simply contact us for a free no obligation discussion about your requirements.
