My lowest fee at the moment it £250 for a simple tax return but I'm finding dealing with a lot of low fee tax returns a ball ache, I guess it is much easier when you have a team of employees around you but I don't, I'm really tempted to ditch the lot and have a minimum fee of somewhere between £1,000 and £2,400.
I figure there is always a minimum amount of work you must do for a client, invoicing, aml, admin, chasing up missing data etc and for £250 it isn't really worth it especially at this time when it is like pulling teeth. It always takes longer than you expect, then you have questions from the clients. I haven't worked out what the minimum time I could spend on a client for all the indirect work but as I don't have fancy accounting software I'll wager it is suprisingly large.
It will also smooth out my work load and improve my sanity. Perhaps it’s just me but I would lose all most all my pain in the [***] clients.
