FAQs

Do you have further questions?

If so, please send us a message via our contact form.

Are there any one-off or set up fees?

Yes, there’s a transition fee equal to one month fee. However, depending on the complexity of your business and current state of your finance function you may need additional transformational support which we would discuss with you.

When I prepay for a year, does that lock in my price?

No, if your business grows in transaction credit volumes, frequency of support or complexity we will rebase your fee and invoice you for the difference for the remaining months of your plan. You will also be entitled to the same discount on any increase. However, we won’t increase your fee for inflation within your plan period.

What’s your cancellation policy?

All clients are on an initial 12 month period, after which 3 months notice is required if you decide to leave.

Will I get a discount if I prepaid for the year?

Yes, we offer a 10% discount if you pre-pay your fees a year in advance.

How do prices change as I grow?

We monitor transaction credits and payroll numbers on a rolling three-month basis and rebase our fee accordingly. Transparency is really important to us, so we’ll always talk to you before we change our prices. Your price will also change if your scope of services changes e.g. frequency of support and reporting, complexity of your business, and ad hoc projects.

What if I’m part way through my financial year when I join Samera?

If you are less than three months into your new financial year, there is no additional cost. If you are more than three months into your new financial year, we pro rata your annual compliance costs (statutory accounts and Corporation Tax).

What’s a transaction credit?

Transaction credits are how we track bookkeeping volumes.

  • 1 bank spend transaction = 1 transaction credit.
  • 1 purchase invoice = 2 transaction credits.
  • 1 sales invoice (where in scope) = 2 transaction credits.

We review transactions credits on a rolling three-month basis and automatically increase your scope and fee accordingly.

Note: No transaction credits are used where sales invoices are raised through integrated systems or by your team members directly.
