My company has just been hit with a £2000+ accountancy bill. This is to do end of year accounts on about £30k turnover and payroll for one employee. It's not as though I presented them with a shoebox full of receipts; everything was provided in spreadsheets, with expenditure itemised by category. There was no VAT to do. Am I out of touch here or have I just been stitched? I've still got a £1400 tax bill to pay on top! With an accountant's bill that size I hadn't been expecting to pay any tax at all. Any accountants out there?
