[From: How to Price Your Accountancy Services for Maximum Profit (by Mark Wickersham)]
Increase Your Prices For Your Firm’s Sake
[For information on the new Freedom Service’s outsourcing accounting work see BOSS’ website]
I’m going to share an observation with you.
Throughout the UK, more than 90% of accountants are way too cheap. (Unfortunately, this is no different for firms in Australia as well) They’re not charging nearly enough for what they provide. Actually, I have never seen a practice that is too expensive!
Due to this factor, every accountant suffers lower bottom lines. And this is why the accounting profession as a whole is suffering. As mentioned in an earlier chapter, when you take into account a market salary for the owner, more than half of accounting practices are making losses in profit!

Accountants have the capacity to make a profound effect on their client’s lives. And I feel that if we can impact people’s lives then we should be well compensated for this. For that to happen then accountants must learn to price their services properly.
In order to do this, there’s one thing you simply must do – increase your prices! We’ll show you how to do this in the following chapters. (Keep a watch out for the next emails)

“Getting pricing right is important for all businesses but for professional services it is probably the most difficult area. The worry is that if you price too high you won’t have enough business whereas if you price too low you are a busy fool and will lose money.
Having heard Mark talk on the subject it is clear that he has an understanding of both the psychology and science behind pricing. He clears the fog so you can see the light at the end of the tunnel and find your way into the light. I cannot recommend Mark’s services enough.”
