A bit late Julie. Normally how much you're likely to earn is
question one in the decision to start a business !

Don't do it too cheap, people don't respect what's given away
too cheaply.

I'd also set a daily rate so you don't get into silly arguments about
arriving or leaving 5 minutes into an extra hour.

As a guide I know a few guys who charge between £100 and £150
a day depending on the length of the engagement, the number of day
required etc.

so specifically but obviously you're a newbie and need advice)

Hi Julie. I know two people who do bookkeeping (they are ATT qualified).

Charges
£15-£20 per hour (but I agree with Edward, round it up to the nearest day).

Ad in the surrey mirror for £50 a month brings in one new client a month.

HTH (Hope that helps).

Good point Troy. The AAT means a lot to people and it's often
mentioned in job adverts. There are a lot of shady people charging
lots of money to train Sage Bookkeepers. IMHO you're far better
off at a reputable college doing AAT.

ATT is spelled differently to AAT (I still think I saw you up at the
Derby Edward). Is your point that you object to me having lower class
friends?
