You get what you pay for
Accountants know they can form a company for £18 at Companies House (CH) but they know the service is very limited. Limited advice, limited options, limited post formation advice and limited customer service. There are also alternatives to CH that are less than £18 but again these are typically limited in their offerings too. If you want a limited service go and get it.
It may be argued that the same applies to accounting firms. You often get what you pay for. There are many ‘online accountants’ offering cheap accounting, but it does not mean it is right for your business. I have often discussed that a good accountant should save you and your business money.
