FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How long does it take for you to
start work?

In some cases we start work for new clients within 48 hours.  This depends on your input but remember, we are qualified accountants and we prepare compliance work all day every day.  We don’t need any training and are most likely already efficient with your preferred software.

How do we get started?

After discussing your needs and agreeing on the start-to-end process, we’ll create your accounts for secure document management and job-tracking.  The next step is to get working – upload your current year documents along with the prior year file.

What is the price of your service?

As no 2 jobs are exactly the same, we quote each seperate job upfront and fix the price, so you always know exactly what you will pay before deciding whether to proceed.  For more detailed information on pricing, download our eBook.

Can we cancel at any time?

You don’t even need to cancel, you’re never locked into a contract.

What if the file has missing
information or queries?

As with all compliance work there is inevitably missing information or queries.  We will review the file to ensure all necessary documents/information has been provided, and provide an itemised list of anything else we need from you.

Will you ever contact our clients?

No.  If there are queries on a file that need to go to the client, we will itemise these for you to follow up with your client.

TESTIMONIALS

“I run a practice of 15 staff on the Gold Coast.  Outsourcing with Clever Fox Consulting has freed up an enourmous amount of time for our staff to focus on advisory services, while they take care of the compliance.”

to remain partially anonymous)

“We are only a very small team, unable to put on a part-time or full-time accountant.  This is where Clever Fox Consulting come in, they take the strain during the busy periods, meaning I don’t pay a staff member to sit around when its quiet.”
