    People who charge more are not imune to mistakes (take your pick; Arthur Anderson, Moodys, S & P spring to mind and the consequences far far greater….)if you really want to know what others charge then  suggest it could be slightly better (only just) to get a larger samplehttp://robknights.com.au/cgi-bin/user.pl?download_file=1&file=220Tony

    Hi Martythis is the same for all professional service providers as the first thing the client asks is how much is this going to cost!!!  and what you really are asking (wether you know it or not ) is why should i do business with you…The fact you think it is steep is because the architect has failed to explain the value to you.You havent said…[Read more]

  • tonyy21692 replied to the topic GST in the forum Legal & Accounting 15 years, 1 month ago

    Pretty much it but there is a a few wrinkles to the cals that effectively reduce the amount – gets even more complex if you end up selling with in the 5 yr rule. Your accountant ought to have raised this,  unless you are self preparing you own BAS's……..good lucktony
