A client of mine, , has registered for vat and so far I have completed 2 vat returns.
Each return 7 or so sales invoices 20 or so purchase invoices, vat on fuel etc, also using cash system so matching takes time, especially on the output side.
I have always had a " standard" charge of £70 (no vat) for vat returns, and, if they are very simple, I have taken this into account when charging for the end of year returns etc.
When I complete someone's vat return I also do not charge for any extra book keeping.
So, this client pays £220 for year end accounts and tax return plus £280 per annum for vat.
They have now said, quite vehemently that, the £70 is too much. I have never had this complaint before, so, am interested in hearing what other people charge for this service, because if my charges are out of kilter, then I would prefer to know.
Many thanks for anyone who takes the time to comment
