My monthly fee for a small business varies between R1,200 and R2,000, depending on the size of your business and the volume of transactions. This will include basic bookkeeping, management reports and monthly PAYE, UIF & VAT returns.

Specific projects / needs is charged at R350 per hour. For instance if you want me to help you set up document templates or information flow systems, that will be charged as a specific project over and above normal bookkeeping / accounting; so will setting up QuickBooks on your own computer be. Year-end closing and annual financial statements are not included in the monthly fee but are charged for seperately as well.

For a company tax return and an idividual who runs a business I charge R700, and for a salaried person’s return R550. The 2 provisional tax returns are R450 each. Providing tax related advice and guidance will also be billed as ad hoc consultation at R350 per hour.

The basic QuickBooks desktop version costs R4,500. Installing and setting it up on your computer will cost between R2,000 and R3,000. Training you to use the system is charged at R350 per hour.

It would be best if we could discuss your situation in detail in order for me to give you an accurate quote.
