How We Charge
Naturally we need to be paid for what we do. Like most service-based businesses our charges are based at hourly rates, ranging from $55 to $250 per hour, depending on the levels of skill and experience of the individuals doing the work. We optimize the assignment of work so that work which can be done at a lower hourly rate is assigned appropriately, reserving the more expensive time for the work which requires input from experienced, highly-trained individuals.
Our fees for personal income tax returns range from $300 to over $1,000, depending upon the degree of difficulty, organization, and income tax issues. For corporate filings (T2 income tax return and unaudited financial statements, together with the necessary associated bookkeeping) our fees start at $2,100 per year, and range higher if complexities or unforeseen circumstances arise. For both personal and corporate work, we can provide a quote prior to starting the engagement, and will consult with you should we have difficulty in completing the work for the quoted fee. Invoices are generally issued at the time of completion of the work, are due when issued, and are subject to applicable taxes (currently 5% GST).
