|Local Accountants Reduce Client Fees|
A new year's helping hand from Chiswick based Bryan & Ridge
Local chartered accountants and chartered tax advisers Bryan and Ridge have announced that they will be reducing their fees by two and a half per cent, to help their clients through the economic downturn.
“The fee reduction is our commercial response to the recession,” said Nicholas Ridge. “People will be expecting to pay less, not more, next year for their goods and services. We want to play our part in getting the economy moving for the benefit of all,” he explained.
“Our clients – whether they are businesses or individuals – are having to tighten their belts to cope with the difficult conditions they will face in 2009. With the same reduction in VAT, they will pay five per cent less overall which we hope will make a real difference.
“Accountants are known for giving sensible, down to earth advice which, in this economic climate, is that businesses and people should work out their best responses to the new economic order and then move quickly to implement their plan. Part of our response is to reduce our fees, actively helping our clients to ride out these tough times. And it meets our ‘our advice adds up’ motto,” he concluded.
Bryan and Ridge believe they are the first local chartered accountants to reduce their fees in response to the recession.
The fee reduction will apply to all new work started for existing and new clients immediately after the 2008 tax return filing deadline, at the end of January 2009.
Bryan and Ridge is run by husband and wife Nicholas and Elizabeth Ridge. With a friendly and professional team they advise clients including sole traders such as writers and artists, retailers, family run businesses, charities, residents’ management companies, limited liability partnerships and groups of companies as well as individuals, living here or abroad.
