• Our Pricing

    Every client receives a tailored package with a fixed-price monthly fee

How much does an accountant cost?

At Beyond, we believe in fair and transparent fees. We don’t like surprises any more than you do, which is why we offer fixed-price packages – billed monthly – to clients. But how much will this be? The honest answer is that we can only establish that once we know more about your business and what your goals are. That’s why we’ll talk to you first before establishing a proposal.

If you are a microbusiness and only need an accountant to help with your annual compliance, we have some off-the-shelf packages starting at €75 per month (see below). Although our fees are fixed, we still believe in great customer service and building lasting, productive relationships with our clients. Plus, our advice is always free!

How we put together your package

We believe the secret to growth is having timely information that allows you to address challenges and spot opportunities. We achieve this with our structured approach to the different cycles involved.

The weekly cycle

Bookkeeping

Depending on the company size, this may be from 1 hour to 2 days per week. A bookkeeper might be onsite or offsite, employed by you or by us.

Your bookkeeper will usually report directly to us, using a weekly checklist that will be reviewed by the accountant. Typically, they handle reconciling bank transactions, sending invoices, credit control, posting bills, supplier reconciliation, payroll, VAT returns, expense claims, and answering emails.

The monthly cycle

Accounting

The Management Accountant provides guidance and review. They will oversee the bookkeeping and management accounts, review Profit & Loss accounts, track areas such as budgets and departmental performance, as well as respond to financial queries.

In addition, the Management Accountant has to respond to the quarterly cycle strategy with day-to-day tactics and tasks that will drive financial management forward.

The quarterly cycle

Financial Strategy

For companies looking to grow, the strategic thinking provided by a CFO is crucial. This experienced accountant meets regularly with the management team – although meetings could be monthly, we tend to deliver these on a quarterly basis.

The CFO will focus on results and look to the future, setting up projects for the next quarter that will influence the company in a positive way. These might take the form of Rapid Improvement Projects centred around a particular priority that will be closed off in 90 days, where action points are handled either by the client or by us.

The yearly cycle

Compliance

Annual compliance involves producing a set of accounts, tax return, annual payroll return, and annual VAT return. For a microbusiness, this will be all that is required on the accounting side of things. But for a company with a turnover above €1 million, this is too reactive an approach.

In order to continue growing, higher revenue companies will need to structure their accounting according to the four cycles and pull together the resources of each. This will ensure finances are always up to date, insights are in real time and decisions are fact-based and forward-thinking.

Our packages work with you

Working with the resources you already have, we’ll put together a package that will help you get where you need to be. The goal is an accounting function that is fast, reliable and compliant. Above all, it will be accountable.

By covering both internal and external accounting needs, as well as elements such as your software stack and training, we typically deliver a high-expertise, results-oriented service for less than the cost of one mid-level employee.

“Beyond Accounting have been brilliant to work with. We needed to switch to Xero and the thought of integrating and switching to new software was very daunting. It did not take long to realise I was in good hands. The team in Beyond and in particular Daniel have been amazing every step of the way. I would have no hesitation in recommending Beyond Accounting to any business.”
