How Much Will it Cost Me?

  1. The initial interview is free.
  2. Costs only start accumulating once a contract is signed by you.
  3. The contract could be for a specific number of hours worked on an agreed task.
    • Here, costs are dependent upon hours expended and level of experience required for the task For example:
    • An experienced bookkeeper updating your records under the control of a senior accountant could cost you between R60 and R120 per hour
    • A senior consultant working on your financial statements or re-organising your tax affairs could cost between R200 and R400 per hour
    • A contract could also be for a fixed sum agreed to arrive at a given result or, it could be a retainer that guarantees you a specific number of hours of a consultant's time every month, until you are confident enough to operate without assistance. This could cost you from R2000 to R3200 for one day per month. (Two days per month are generally sufficient for an enterprise employing about twenty persons)
