Geoffrey Cliff & Associates recognises that our clients are looking for value.  We provide a professional service and are transparent about our fee structures.

We aim to abolish the profession’s tradition of high accounting fees by offering you a more affordable service to suit your budget, without any compromise to professionalism and quality service.

Fixed Fees

We can generally offer clients a fixed fee for most engagements.  The following fee guide is an approximate guide to our fees (effective from 1 July 2019).  Please note that this will be an estimate only as it is quite difficult to ascertain precisely how long a given job will take. The time taken depends on many factors such as technical issues, quality of the records provided etc.
