Post with the Most 2008
I have recently taken on a new client and agreed a fee of £2,500 + VAT. They are extremely happy with this fee, as their last accountant was ripping them off (this would be putting it mildly).
However, having now done most of the work I realise that I have overestimated slightly, and consider that £2,100 + VAT would be a fairer fee. I will be seeing them tomorrow and intend to reduce the fees.
I tend to take a longer view of things and don't believe in making a quick buck in the short term.
My question is: am i the most stupid accountant in britain today (ie voluntarily giving away £400) or am I too generous for my own good?
how many would behave in a similar fashion?
