FAQ

the most popular questions

Q: Is the first meeting free?

A:  We understand how much thought one should give before making that final decision of hiring an accountant…

That is why our first consultation was, is and will always remain to be FREE of charge.

 

Q: How often will I hear from you?

 

A: We value the huge importance of client communication.

Although we would like to talk to you bi-weekly on the phone, that would be neither practical nor productive.  Accounting and financial matters are known to be time sensitive, and we think that it’s best to keep you updated when the situation arises.  It may seem like no activity or actions are taking place, but in reality, much behind-the-scenes work is being performed. All for a sole goal, that on the day you need our help, we are ready.  

 

Q: What are the costs of your services?

A: First and foremost, each of our clients is fully entitled to know exactly what everything costs. So at your very first visit, we’ll give you an approximation of what your fee will be looking like at the end of the day.  We encourage a frank, open discussion about our fees so you completely understand and are comfortable with the arrangement.
