    Hi all

    Had a meeting last week with an accountant to discuss my new limited company which is a property development company, buying renovating & selling approx 2 properties every 3 years.

    I’ll do the bookkeeping for each property.

    What is a reasonable cost?, he quoted £1200 + VAT. What would others expect to pay for this service fot my type of company?

    My friend has an accountant who charges around £900 all in to do his accounts - he only has online businesses. So I think you accountant is not far off the mark.

    As far as accountants go, in many ways I think you get what you pay for. If you want cheap and cheerful, great, but dont expect to get a top rate service.

    I would always say that it depends on what support you want. Accountants can cost anywhere from £600 to £2,500. Again depends on what level of accountancy and tax support you require.

    I got a breakdown from my accountants proposal. What's people's opinions:

    - Provision of un-audited financial statements - £1,000

    - Tax management service including corporate tax, compliance and tax provisioning services - £350

    - Confirmation statement & PSC register - £193 + VAT

    - Directors tax returns - £350

    - Incorporation (setting up of limited company) - £350

    Do people think these are reasonable? I'm not 100% certain exactly what all of these are for so any explanation would be great.

    My accountant does not charge extra for my directors tax return but I am the only director taking a salary in the company.
