Service Charges

(1) Preparation of accounts / independent examinations

From 1 April 2015 the following should be applied when invoicing groups for independent examination and preparation of accounts. For groups who want an estimate please use the following scale as a guidance of charges for independent examination. 

(Terms & conditions variable)

For example

 Income or Expenditure Turnover

 £5000  £50
10,000  £100 








Paid members get 25% discount off the total fee charged. In line with our Debtor Policy, service users will be required to pay 50% up front before work can start and the final amount payable upon completion of the accounts. 

We need to emphasise that CAP cannot give a firm estimate until we have actually seen the books, especially if they have a lot of funds it is obviously much more time-consuming or if they are in a real mess we may have to do some remedial work as well.
