Another possible reason for an accountant to charge less is because he does not have many clients. Then the question arises, why he does not have clients during the busiest time of the year? Isn’t that something to think about before going to a cheap accountant? If you call an accountant who charges a reasonable amount you will be able to book in for an appointment at the end of the week or early next week. But try calling a cheap accountant. You will be able to get an appointment definitely the same day or the next day. Doesn’t that tell you that he does not have many clients or he does not spend time with the clients he already have?
Furthermore, if you are still not convinced let me warn you. You need to be careful when you go to a cheap accountant. Over the phone he will tell you a cheap price but after he has done the job you will be handed over a tax invoice which will surprise you. There are different charges that they will add on to the promised price. Their explanation will be “your return was complicated”. Then you will have no choice but to pay whatever they have charged. Hence, you will end up with a poor quality work, disappointing service and a huge bill.
At Taxgate, we provide a much better service than other accountants for a reasonable amount and we look after you not only until we finish doing your tax return but throughout the whole year. Our charges start from $127.50 and we will have to add another small amount if your tax return is truly complicated or if we had to find some information that you failed to provide us which is critical to get you the biggest refund. Since we do not like to surprise you with a huge bill, we are unable to tell you exactly how much it will cost you for the work we have to do without actually having a look. After having a look at your documents we will give a quotation if required and you will not pay anything more than that. Also we will get you the biggest possible refund and we guarantee it or your money back!
