We pride ourselves on our price-competitive nature. We strive to provide the highest quality legal and financial services whilst ensuring that our services remain affordable. The way we see it, every Australian should have access to exceptional legal and financial advice and assistance and there should be no mystery about professional fees. We are not afraid to let you know how we charge for our services before you have even met us and we are confident enough in our services to outline our range of fixed fee options on our website. Across all our services, whether legal, conveyancing, mortgage broking, financial planning and tax and accounting, we offer free first consultations with the appropriate expert.
For legal matters, we charge on either a fixed fee, hourly rate or staged billing basis. We keep our legal fees fair and reasonable and disclose fees up-front, in writing, at all times. Across all legal matters, we charge fixed fees for the provision of a preliminary legal opinion. In matters where it is more difficult to predict precisely what the total legal fees will be, we will charge on an hourly rate basis of $ 300.00 plus GST for a solicitor’s time, but we will provide a written quote, up-front, that sets out an estimate of the total legal fees that we might charge in your legal matter. For a more detailed understanding of how we charge for a particular type of legal matter, choose a legal area (via the menu above) and then click on the ‘how we charge’ quick link or other quick links that explain how we charge for the particular type of matter.
For conveyancing matters, we charge fixed fees of $990 plus disbursements (including GST) for the purchase or sale of a standard residential property and $1250 plus GST plus Disbursements for the purchase or sale of a standard commercial property. For a more detailed understanding of how we charge for a particular type of conveyancing matter (say, for example, the purchase of a residential property), you can click on the ‘how we charge button’ at the relevant type of purchase or sale (residential or commercial).
For residential mortgage broking services, we do not usually charge any fees for our services. For a more detailed understanding of how we charge for a particular type of mortgage broking matter (say, for example, a home loan), you can click on the ‘how we charge button’ at the relevant type of mortgage broking matter. More information in relation to our fees and/or commissions structure will be made clear in a credit guide, which will be provided to you up-front, at the first appointment.
For financial planning matters, we charge fixed fees for the preparation of a Statement of Advice, depending on the complexity of your circumstances and the amount of work involved. More information in relation to our fees and/or commissions structure will be made clear in a financial services guide, which will be provided to you up-front, at the first appointment.
For tax & accounting matters, we charge fixed fees, across the entire range of personal and business services that we offer. For example, we charge a fixed fee of $143.00 for a standard individual tax return, where we prepare and lodge your tax return on the spot, assuming we have sufficient information, all the required documentation and we consider it appropriate that we do so. For a more detailed understanding of how we charge for a particular practice area within tax & accounting services (say, for example, company tax return preparation), you can click on the ‘how we charge button’ at the relevant practice area.
By offering free consultations with any one of our experts, as well as so many flexible pricing structures, we remain competitive at all times, across our suite of services.
