Pricing

Yes, absolutely.

In order for us to provide a quote we need to have a clear understanding of your circumstances and requirements. We call this scoping the services you require. To get to that point, we either need you to send us the information and/or have a meeting. If you’re unsure what to do next, then submit an enquiry and we’ll get back to you within one business day.

Munro’s seeks to fairly price services and ensure you receive great value for services provided.

In determining price, we take into consideration your specific situation. Factors which influence the price include the complexity of your personal, investment and/or business affairs, completeness of data, compilation of data, number of different accounts, wallets and exchanges, types of transactions, number of investments traded, and timeliness of advice and assistance sort.

Our pricing generally begins at $3,300 per annum for modest affairs, with intermediate affairs around $6,600 and complex affairs $12,000+. Please refer to the How We Get Started page for further pricing guidance.

Also, we’re proud to let you know that should you ever feel the price does not reflect a fair value for the services provided, then we guarantee to negotiate in good faith a revised price. Ultimately, we are confident that you will receive an exceptional outcome from our services and we doubt you will ever have to rely upon this guarantee.

If it’s a simple yes/no or quick question (say less than a couple of minutes) for us to answer, then no. If we need to reply in-detail and/or conduct an analysis or research, then we will invoice this professional work in accordance with our pre-agreed engagement terms.

Get to Know Each Other Meeting 

The difference is our true business advisory approach.

We are privileged to have helped many businesses grow over many decades, and have assisted in the transition of businesses from one generation to the next.

We truly believe in building strong client relationships – this is because we understand that forging strong relationships is the key to producing successful outcomes for our clients.

We practice what we preach, and we understand what truly works when it comes to running a successful business.

We also understand that our employees are our biggest assets. We provide top-of-the-line training and have a generous remuneration policy, as well as foster a strong culture embedded on work life balance, in order to ensure that our employees are happy with their work.

Happy, fulfilled employees are then best placed to provide YOU with the exceptional service that you deserve.

If you want to have a chat with one of our specialist advisors, please feel free to reach out to us and provide us with a brief outline of your background and what you hope to achieve.

We will then schedule a FREE, no-strings-attached Get To Know Each Other meeting so you can learn more about us (and vice-versa), and be confident that Munro’s is well-equipped to handle your accounting and business advisory requirements.

We encourage you to Give Us a Go, Risk-Free, with our risk-free trial.

If you have an existing accountant and are considering changing to us, this’ll give you the opportunity to trial us risk-free before deciding to make the switch.

You can engage us for business coaching and advisory work while still retaining your existing accountant for your tax compliance requirements. We are proud to let you know that we have clients who initially engaged us for this trial and were extremely satisfied with our advisory service, such that they decided to make the complete switch to Munro’s for their accounting requirements.

Wonderful! We are excited that you are keen to engage Munro’s to assist with your tax and business affairs.

If you want to have a chat with one of our specialist advisors, please feel free to reach out to us and provide us with a brief outline of your background and what you hope to achieve.

We will then schedule a FREE, no-strings-attached Get To Know Each Other meeting so you can learn more about us (and vice-versa), and be confident that Munro’s is well-equipped to handle your accounting and taxation requirements.

Please be advised however, that we may not be able to provide specialist advice in this initial catch up. If you require tailored, specialist advice on complex matters, then you can engage us for a paid consultation. We will let you know if a paid consultation is required to address your concerns.

Our Give Us a Go, Risk-Free trial is exactly as it sounds. Following our Get To Know Each Other meeting, if we chose to work with one another, we’ll guarantee you a 90 days risk-free trial.

During the 90 days, we’ll work together on achieving real results. At the end of 90 days, if for whatever reason you’re not satisfied, you get all your money back and we’ll wish you all the best going forward. On the other hand, if you’re happy to continue, which we’re very confident you will be, we’ll agree to a 12 month plan and continue working together to achieve even more beneficial results.

The beauty of this guarantee is that if you already have an accountant, you get to trial us out, risk-free, before making the switch.

Paid Tax Consultations 

If you need tailored tax advice – have questions or are uncertain about what is best for you – then a consultation is perfect for you.

Should you simply require a tax return to be prepared and lodged, then you are better off asking for a quote.

If you’re a business owner/leader looking to engage us for business advisory and accounting services, then book a Get To Know Each Other meeting instead.

A paid tax consultation is a meeting to address specific tax issues. Its purpose is to address those tax issues during the meeting – for us to give you tax advice.

This is different to the Get To Know Each Other meeting, which is designed for both of us to get know the other, broadly discussing the problems you face and the solutions we may be able to provide. We don’t generally provide tailored tax advice during the Get To Know Each Other meeting. Rather, the result of the Get To Know Each Other meeting may be an joint agreement for Munro’s to prepare an engagement proposal, which should be the beginning of a long and prosperous advisory relationship for you and your business. Refer to How We Get Started for more information.

Consultations allow you to meet with a specialist advisor from Munro’s to discuss and address your situation, questions, concerns and options. Your Munro’s advisor will use their many years of experience and expertise to provide you with readily available answers and advice. A post-consultation email is also sent to you which briefly outlines the advice given. Additionally, if you want us to, we can record the consultation and provide you with a copy.

Whilst we of course do our very best to provide the necessary advice during the initial consultation, we are not always able to address everything in one consultation. Where your situation/plans include complex matters which cannot be fully addressed during the initial consultation, we can provide further advice and assistance as required as part of a secondary consultation and/or project. This additional work will be separately priced based upon your unique circumstances following the first consultation, and agreed with you before proceeding further. There is no obligation to proceed should you not wish to receive the additional advice and assistance.

This depends on your circumstances and can only be answered with a maybe. Until such time that we explore what it is you are doing and plan to do, we cannot say whether or not one consultation will be sufficient to address everything. We make our expertise available to you by way of a consultation, capped at the agreed price, so as to best address what you need and allow us to let you know what further advice and assistance (if anything) is needed. Our clients continue to be very pleased with our professional services and we are confident we can help you too.

If you remain unsure if a consultation is right for you, then please submit an enquiry. Include your name, phone number, background information/circumstances and questions. We will respond within one business day, suggesting whether or not a consultation is necessary or what your other options are.

No, tax consultations where we provide tailored tax advice are not free.

Only the Get To Know Each Other meeting is free. See above – What’s the difference between a paid tax consultation and Get To Know Each Other meeting?  – then consider what is best for you.

We charge a fair price for consultations because you have asked us to provide you with advice and there are costs associated with providing that advice.

Only in exceptional circumstances. If you are a startup or not-for-profit then you are welcome to submit an enquiry to request a discounted consultation. Please be sure to state your name, phone number, background information/circumstances and questions. We will respond within one business day letting you know if you qualify for a discounted consultation.

Payment for consultations are accepted using Stripe or direct bank deposit.

Stripe 

When booking online, your payments are securely processed by Stripe. We accept payment using Mastercard, VISA and AMEX.

After you select your consultation date and time, you will be asked to answer a few questions and then pay using Stripe.

To complete payment, you need to include the Name as it appears on your debit/credit card, your card number and expiry date.

Direct Bank Deposit 

If you would prefer to pay using direct bank deposit, then please call our reception at (08) 9427 5200.

Tax Returns 

If all you need is a tax return prepared and lodged (i.e. you don’t require any advice), then rather than book a paid tax consultation you can request a quote from us.

Since everyone’s circumstances are unique to them, in order to provide a quote we firstly need to review your situation and relevant activity/transactions.

To allow us to do this, please email ExperienceSuccess@munros.com.au the following information:

  1. Tell us your name and phone number.
  2. Explain what you want.
  3. Explain your situation/activity/transactions.
  4. Where applicable, provide the following:
    1. A copy of your most recently lodged income tax return and financial statements.
    2. Access to your bookkeeping software or spreadsheets containing all transactions. Essentially the records associated with all your income and expenses.
    3. Refer to these instructions, if applicable:
    4. Anything else which we need and should know about your tax affairs.

Alternative to email, you can upload to our secure client account facility. If you would like to use the client account facility, then please let us know and we will arrange for a team member to setup your account.

    I came over to Australia with a highly complicated cryptocurrency investing and trading portfolio. I never realised that I had to declare this in my tax returns as I had never cashed out into my bank account. I soon discovered that every transaction is taxable irrespective of whether or not you cash out. I contacted Munro’s in an outright panic and was put through to Cherie and explained everything to her. She immediately put me at ease and took control of my situation. From the start it was evident that I was in the care of a real professional tax consultant. I handed her a nightmare on a plate (3 years of highly complicated transactions) and she seamlessly worked through it. Cherie has incredible knowledge and experience and through this, Munro’s saved us thousands of dollars. I will remain at Munro’s until the very end. Thank you Cherie, you are the most knowledgeable and professional tax consultant that I have ever dealt with.

    Excellent accounting service with a deep understanding of tax implications for SMSFs.

    I was very impressed with Munro’s accounting service. Before I engaged with Munro’s, I met with accountants across Australia, but I decided to go with Munro’s because of their breadth and understanding of taxation.

    Brian from Munro’s was able to quickly and efficiently complete my 2023 tax returns, and also provided additional advice and expertise on how I could better structure my affairs.

    Originally, I briefed Munro’s to wind back my SMSF due to the administrative burden of managing it. However, Munro’s was able to clearly understand my affairs and prepare the tax documentation in a way that reduced the administrative burden. I was so impressed with their service that I decided to continue with the SMSF after all.

    I highly recommend Munro’s to anyone looking for an accounting service with a deep understanding of taxation and SMSFs.

    From the moment we met Simon Strawbridge we were impressed and put at ease by his personable manner. We knew our taxation assessment was in competent and knowledgeable hands.We have been with Munro’s for 8+ years. During this time Drew Pflaum assisted us with BAS issues, which was greatly appreciated easing another financial burden. All the staff whom have assisted us through the years have been highly professional and always pleasant. In particular those at the reception desk always helped us with a smile. Even when reception was not attended, someone was quick to assist us. Munro’s make taxation assessment time a breeze. Thank you Munro’s. Congratulations on 50 years of excellent service

    We have been clients of Munro’s (and Donald F Munro & Assoc. before that) for more than 50 years and have always found them to be right on point with their advice and work. Nothing is too much trouble to research and the responses always given in easy-to-understand language. We love that the K.I.S.S principle is used (keep-it-simple-stupid!) We can’t thank Simon and Carl enough for the great service that they provide. I have also, in community roles, worked with Barry Virgo and Ian Arblaster over the years on Co-operative business and their knowledge was second to none.

    Thank you and congratulations Munro’s on 50 years + in business.

    David and I have been loyal clients of Munros for many years—I think since we were married in 1962. David made all the decisions in those early years. I became a more active partner as we worked with Ted Wilhelm and Ian Arblaster until their retirement. We then worked with Christine Prasetia for our financial, accounting, taxation and our wills until David’s death in May, 2017. Christine has patiently guided me through taking up the reins of our business venture. She is very efficient and totally reliable in all our dealings. I feel fortunate to have Christine as my accountant and business advisor. Thanking you, Val McAlpine

    My husband and I were looking for some advice on a short time frame with regards to purchasing a piece of farmland. We had an offer in hand and a peculiar clause that we needed advice on.

He helped us meet our deadline, understand the consequences of each available option and now establish our small farming enterprise. We cannot thank him and the team at Munro’s enough.

  • ★★★★★ — Fay & Steve

    Our Munro’s Experience began approximately 38/40 years ago. Steve’s parents were already customers of Munros, in particular Barry Virgo, and we followed suit.

    For the first couple of years we had several changes of Accountants at Munro’s (we always got the newbies and had to ‘train them up’ to know how to get the best deal from the Tax Office for farmers. We became fed up of this system. Our last newbie was Simon Strawbridge. Well, we got him “trained up right proper” then they wanted to give us the next new one, but we stated we weren’t changing.

    Today, Simon is still our go to man. Whilst we understand there have been many very efficient people working in the background on our business affairs, for which we thank them sincerely, we have always maintained our professional relationship with Simon.

    We have been through some big business changes in our farming adventures over these past 40 odd years, and the advice, help and professional assistance has been 100%. At times we didn’t know who to trust to give us the best business advice and we were fortunate to be able to lean on Simon’s vast knowledge to help us make these decisions.

    Our working partnership of having our taxation needs, investment portfolios, wills, etc. linked in with Munros and the great staff has been successful.
