I don’t know about you but I’m becoming increasingly focussed on getting value for money. Now, this may be down to several things like increasing costs or changing market conditions, or the fact that everything’s available on the internet and it’s easy to compare prices.
I mean, why would you go to a retail shop, pay for parking and pay 25% more for the product than you would if you bought it on the internet and had it delivered for free? You might say you’re supporting local businesses, which is fair enough but not if it’s a large supermarket chain or your finances just don’t allow you to do this.
It’s the same with running a business. Why pay more and get less for a perceived value? It doesn’t make sense.
I’m a small business with not very many overheads. My charges for an annual set of accounts and tax computation are around £350, not £1200.
It’s not just the cost though; you can talk to me pretty much whenever you want and I’ll talk to you so you can understand me – no jargon.
So, what do you get for what you pay?
