We get it – numbers can be confusing. Choosing an accountant? That can be even more confusing. So dive in and find our answers to the things we get asked most often.
What does an accountant actually do for my business?
Often people think that an accountant is just there to do your end-of-year compliance – basically, doing everything you need to make sure that you’re legally compliant and that you’re paying the right amount of taxes. At Vested, we believe that value should be provided throughout the year, which is why we support our clients to manage their money and make good financial decisions at any point throughout their business journey.

How do you price your services?
We pride ourselves in transparency when it comes to our fees. Before we start working together, we’ll sit down with you to scope out what you need and wherever possible we agree on the fee up front. Any work that is outside of scope we will advise you on and agree prior to beginning. This way there are no nasty surprises at the end of the year!
Do you offer fixed price packages?
Every business is different – and so are their accounting needs. That’s why we create bespoke packages that fit your individual needs rather than trying to push you into a set package. However, our fees are transparent and in most instances a set fee can be agreed upfront.
Isn’t it hard changing accountants?
You shouldn’t feel stuck with your accountant just because transferring to a new one is hard. We’ll streamline the process – doing all the background paperwork on your behalf, and then taking the time to get up to speed on your business so we can provide the best possible advice.
How often will we have contact?
Ultimately this comes down to your personal preference, but at Vested we believe you should feel comfortable speaking to us regularly about your business.
