Frequently Asked Questions
What is TAXATION PARTNER?
TAXATION PARTNER is a taxation advisory service designed for small and medium sized accountancy practices which do not have a dedicated tax partner.
How we work?
TAXATION PARTNER is a practice to practice consultancy service. We operate by providing support to accountants that don’t necessarily have the required specialist tax expertise in house. We provide a wide range of bespoke tax consultancy services which you can offer to your own clients. If required we can also act as the face of your firm liaising directly with your clients. We strive to help accountants to use our services and understand where we could add value to your client base.
What will it cost to use TAXATION PARTNER?
Support 1 is charged at €250 per month reviewed on a quarterly basis. Support 2 involves attendance at your practice for a review of your client files at a cost of €200 per client. Support 3 relates to project case work and as such each piece of work we undertake on your behalf is estimated and costed individually. As a company, wherever possible, we do not charge an hourly rate, and our fixed pricing model enables you to agree fees and build in an appropriate margin well in advance. Ultimately, we don’t expect that this service will cost you anything, as the purpose of the advice is to save your clients money which should be recoverable in the fees you charge them.
Can I still make a margin when I recharge to my own clients?
Yes, TAXATION PARTNER costs each job based on “trade rates – 20/30% discount”, and you will always know how much each piece of work will cost before we begin.
Will TAXATION PARTNER poach your clients?
Absolutely not. A critical aspect of the business model is to provide comfort and assurance to participants that their clients are not going to be approached directly. We hope to develop solid, trusting and long lasting relationships with Accountants. Those relationships would be completely undermined by poaching clients, which in turn would undermine the business model. We will happily enter into a legal undertaking tot hat effect as required.
