Bookkeepers are absorbing the costs of out-of-scope work

Nearly half (43%) of bookkeepers and accountants who experience increases in the scope of client work absorb the extra time and costs themselves. That’s because most bookkeepers and accountants (89%) delay or avoid having awkward conversations with clients. Ignition’s template-based proposals and letters of engagement help you set a clear scope of work to save time and money.

  • "Now I don’t have to chase payments and I have zero debtors. I communicate my price at the start of an agreement so there’s no confusion - and make sure we capture client payment details upfront so that we keep getting paid on time."
