Just lost a client, when I asked why they said they had been quoted £80 annual fee for self employed tax return
I was stunned. I charged £175+VAT last year for a simple job but still, £80, how can they do that and make money?
Of course, I said Good Luck to you, Bye and offered to correspond with the new accountant as per normal. More because I want to see who on earth it is charging £80 with presumably no VAT.
Now it is a quick and simple job to be fair, but surely that is desperation to charge £80 annual fee? Or maybe a bookkeeper who thinks it's a 'pricy' job?
Anyone else lost clients to such a tiny fee?
