Here at Bret N Pacheco, CPA, PLLC our fee structure is not your typical hourly rate but rather a fixed fee arrangement. A fixed fee arrangement gives the client confidence we are not simply generating fees. We believe the client should be able to contact us and share their concerns and issues without fearing an unduly fee. This is why we do not charge for simple phone calls & emails.
The fees are based on the appropriate value reflecting the project. We discuss with the client to determine the service needed then provide a fee for the project. This gives the client the option to have the project completed at the at time or to hold off. Billing clients by the hour lacks true independence as the client does not see us working on the project and has no way to truly knowing how many hours were spent working on the project. We strive to provide a fee upfront before a project is complete.
