    Accounting Fees - what should I expect to pay

    Thanks for all the replies. I realise that I asked a fairly general question and that accounting is a broad topic with different levels of skill and expertise. Perhaps I could have asked what people consider a low rate or a high rate. Based on the feedback so far it seems like a rate of...
