* Please note – all fees exclude GST (7%).  GST will be added where applicable.

NOTES:

  1. The above fees exclude GST (7%).
  2. Any out of pocket expenses are excluded.
  3. The number of transactions is calculated by taking into account the following:
  • No of sale invoices
  • No of purchase invoices
  • No of Bank transactions (payments, receipts, bank charges and bank interest)
  • No of other transactions (administrative expenses, selling and distribution expenses, depreciation, taxes etc.)  

For example: A company at its financial year from 1/1/2012 until 31/12/2012 had 6 sale invoices and 6 purchase invoices that were paid through bank transfers (and therefore 3 bank deposits and 3 bank payments), 4 quarterly bank interest, 4 quarterly bank charges and 7 other transactions (1 audit invoice, 1 bookkeeping invoice, 1 director fees invoice, 1 secretary fees invoice, 1 utility bill payment, 1 tax payment and 1 Company House Levy payment) that were paid in cash. The total number of transactions is calculated as follows:

 

Transaction type

Total

Sale transactions

6

Purchase transactions

Bank transactions (6+6+4+4)

20

Other transactions

7

Total

39

 

Therefore for this company for the bookkeeping for the year from 1/1/2012 until 31/12/2012 the total of transactions is 39 (Up to 50 transactions) and an indicative quotation is as follows:

 

Transactions

EUR

Standard fee

39 transactions (700-350)*39/50=

Total

623

 

  1. The above fees are given for indication purposes only and cannot be considered as final. Final quotations will be given upon presentation of the appropriate documentation. These will be based on complexity of transactions and issues to be resolved.
  2. Each agreement/contract, investment and loan, is charged on fixed amount as per the below:

  1. Dormant companies are considered as the companies that have only share capital and professional services invoices (audit fees, bookkeeping fees, secretary fees etc.).  If a company has an active bank account, it is not considered as dormant.
  2. For companies with over 200 transactions fees will depend upon actual volume and complexity of transactions.
