Typical Fee Schedule
We do not charge for the initial Discovery Meeting held in our office.
The Discovery Meeting gives you the opportunity to assess if Efficient Financial can provide value for you, and in turn, allow us to determine if we deem our services of help to you.
There is no obligation on either party to progress matters beyond this meeting.
We are a fee based firm.
We work for YOU and provide a personalised service. The benefit of our fee structure means that we do not need to promote a product from which to get paid.
We will only accept work on the basis that we expect our fees to be good value for you, and that, in due course, the value will clearly be demonstrated.
If we agree that we want to work with each other, the fee structure will depend on the type and nature of the work undertaken. At all times, we will ensure that you are fully aware of any costs involved, before a commitment is made and any work done.
Scope of Services
We treat every client as an individual and after careful assessment of your needs and requirements we will determine a fee that we believe is justified and good value.
Fees are agreed in advance on an individual basis and work does not commence until you are in agreement.
Typically we find that what we charge depends on a combination of time involved, case difficulty and urgency of the client circumstances in overcoming specific issues
