I consider my rates reasonable. I am a fast typist and I know what I’m doing. I am also an excellent Multi-Tasker. I am set in my ways of doing things the most simplest and fastest way possible, if I can, and with the programs I am most familiar with. My standard rates while working in a Chartered Accountant’s firm ranged between $75.00 to $100.00 per hour (CDN$) and that was in the 1990’s.
I recognize your right to negotiate.
If there are overages or unexpected delays, I will let you know. Generally, fees are based on time spent, and due when invoiced. I reserve the right to suggest improvements in your procedures or accounting in order to reduce my time I spend on your file. The more organized and complete your accounting material is, the less time is required to complete the job. Jobs brought in late or near filing deadlines will generally cost more than a job brought in early. It’s a fact.
