For Accounting, GST and Tax, Propeller Accounting is a 100% subscription based. 


We don’t advertise package prices because the reality is that this is a marketing gimmick. Every client is unique with different needs so you cannot categorise clients into 3 or 4 fee groups. 

For each client, we review their specific requirements and work involved to determine a tailored and cost-effective fee package and then provide this as a "no obligation" fee quote. This becomes the monthly subscription.

Your fees are known upfront so there are no surprises and are payable in monthly instalments, spreading the cashflow burden over 12 months.

Fees include phone calls and ad-hoc queries to do with your accounting, GST and tax so there are no extra charges. For any services beyond this, we discuss and agree the scope and fee in advance. 


We encourage our clients to contact us whenever they like. The expectation of a separate invoice should never be a barrier to effective communication between client and accountant so you won’t get one!
