Please help!! We keep getting totally ripped off by accountants, our latest bill for a simple partnership BAS return was $1,200!! Our quote was $250 but the accountant has added on money for every conversation we have had with him and lots of extras that he talked us in to without ever mentioning any prices. This is the third accountant we have used in the past year and they have all been rubbish! Not returning calls or emails, not doing the work we need without us being constantly on their backs, giving us bad advice or no advice at all and completely over charging us.

Can anyone recommend a good accountant/financial adviser on the coast (we dont mind travelling for someone good)?. We just want someone who will do what they say, knows what they are talking about, gives good advice and is honest about their prices.

Thanks in advance x
