Frequently Asked Questions

Technically, a small business owner 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 small business to appoint an accountancy provider. Choosing an accountant means that your accountancy provider will perform your accounting, bookkeeping, payroll, and tax services for you monthly, and a good accountant also provides ongoing updates, support, and guidance. At QAccounting, we offer a wide array of accounting services for small businesses, all paid for via transparent monthly fees at whatever level of service you require.

Regardless of whether your small business is just starting out, or you are a veteran in your field, your business’ bottom line is always important, and saving money should be a top priority.

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 small business 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!

You can certainly join QAccounting mid-way through your financial year, in fact you can join QAccounting at any point that you would like. There may be a fee involved to catch-up on the work required for the months prior to you joining us however, but this will be nominal and something we will agree with you prior to you making a decision.

We make it very easy for you to switch to QAccounting from a previous accounting provider. We will even manage this entire process on your behalf! Our switching team will liaise with your previous accountant and yourself to ensure that we have all relevant company information in place to take over as your accounting provider. That means that you won’t be an unwanted middleman in the process and won’t have to go through the process of going back and forth between your old accountant and ourselves. Switching to us couldn’t be easier!

Need you even ask?! Being a client of QAccounting means that you have a dedicated Client Manager and Accountant in place supporting you and your small business, guiding you through the entire process of running a successful business.
