New research into accountants’ attitudes into meetings with their clients has found different approaches to charging for strategic meetings.
It found that just over one quarter (26%) of practices asked do not charge for occasional meetings with clients to discuss their strategy, while 13% always charge and 58% sometime charge.
WE DO NOT CHARGE FOR CLIENT MEETINGS
The research also found that 31% of respondents felt they met their clients enough. 84% feel they meet their priority clients often enough for important business and strategic issues (by contrast, 13% feel they don’t meet their clients enough).
About half (53%) meet with their clients twice a year to discuss important business and financial issues and over one third (38%) hold such meetings quarterly and 3% have monthly meetings.
WE WILL MEET WITH YOU EVERY MONTH
Clients should be aware that most accountants see their priority clients at least quarterly or half yearly. If you see your accountant less frequently you may well draw the conclusion that you are not a priority to them.
