    Default For those who use an accountant...

    How much do they charge you?

    It depends entirely on
    - how complicated your affairs are,
    - how many returns they have to lodge (personals, children, partnership, company, trust, super fund etc)
    - how much information you provide them with; and
    - the state of the information (ie do they have loads of questions, or do they have to go find the answers, ask you for additional information etc)

    lots of time = more expensive.

    I think my one's standard fee is about $100. My fee is a little higher due to investment property.

    About $300 for both of us for everything incl audit insurance (no further fees should you get audited). Been using same acct for years, our returns are around 11k each.

    $150 for both myself and DH. I've been seeing him for over 10 years and he has rarely put it up. I'm expecting a rise this year. It's well worth it for us.

    Like PP said it can depend on your circumstances. For us it costs $$ because we have a family trust because Dh works for himself, but obviously well worth the fee because there is so much our accountant does for us.

    She's a CPA. For both DH and I she charges us $150 all up. I knew her from work so I'm not entirely sure if thats mates rates or her regular fee.

    Nothing as my dad is an accountant so he has always done mine. He charges clients roughly $300 for a return but it varies depending on their circumstances.
