Frequently Asked Questions

Technically, an electrician can perform their own accounting. There is a lot of work that goes into performing an ongoing accountancy service however, so it is very common for a electrician to appoint an accountancy provider.

At QAccounting, we offer a wide array of accounting services for electricians, all paid for via transparent monthly fees at whatever level of service you require.

This question has a very easy answer, no! We do not tie our clients into lengthy contracts. We have a brief 3-month tie in period where we ask that you remain a client, but after that there are no exit fees or annual contract binding you to us. We believe that a relationship between a electrician and its accountant should be built on trust, and we want that to trust to be genuine.

Absolutely not! If you choose to leave QAccounting following the initial 3-month period, there are no fees whatsoever for leaving us. We charge a flat fixed monthly fee, so there is no reason for you to have to pay an exit fee should you wish to take your accounting elsewhere. We have a fantastic retention rate with our clients however, so we hope that it never comes to that!
