Hi all.

It's that time again for the MIP Fees Survey!

I've made a few tweeks this year and will let the survey run until the end of April to allow plenty of time to get as many results in as possible.

You can download the questions from here - https://www.dropbox.com/s/k2qw7pblnkt2hba/MIP-fees-survey-questions.xlsx?dl=0

Please then email the completed for to [email protected]

As per before those who take part will get a full copy of the results. A summary of the results will be published on here so everyone can see and learn from them.

We ask you only take part if you can reliably answer over 75% of the questions even if they are not fees you do currently charge but those you intend to charge.

Any questions please post them here or email to the address above.
Regards,

Burg

    Thanks @burg for taking this on once again. Last year's survey was really useful for any one in practice, and the more of us participate, the better.
    @SianaT any chance of bumping this thread up so forum users see it until the deadline? Thanks

    Thank you for the opportunity Burgh. I'm definitely going to take part.

    I was wondering if you could include the following in your survey if possible:
    Number of partners in practice
    Number of employees
    Distinction between fees actually charged and those intended to be charged

    Many thanks

    @tca - I am happy to take suggestions for improvement to the survey. Last year there were a number of requests for location which is now included this year. If there is enough of an interest on one or more of your suggestions I will look at including them. I can't include every possible question as if the survey becomes too long the number of participants will fall.
    Regards,

    I'll be looking to bring this to a close most likely at the end of April. Anyone who has not yet contributed who would like to please get the completed surveys back to me ASAP.

    Thanks

    Hi Burg,

    Just a query about the prices charged for the various types of tax work. Do the prices include bookkeeping or are they purely for the tax return?

    Thanks,

    David.

    The fees should be for a typical tidy set of accounts that does not have their own bookkeeping done but not for soemone dropping off a huge mess of invoices
