We prioritize price transparency, ensuring our clients have clear insights into our billing practices. Our rates are readily available on our website, allowing prospective clients to evaluate if our pricing model aligns with their financial considerations. Simplifying our billing approach, we charge on an hourly basis for all services rendered, inclusive of all communication efforts such as phone calls, emails, and text messages.

To maintain transparency, detailed invoices are prepared, documenting all billable hours, and issued semi-monthly for client payment. While we strive to maintain stable rates, occasional adjustments may occur. Rest assured, any changes to our rates will be communicated in advance, ensuring our clients are fully informed. Currently, our service is billed at $135 per hour.

For traveling to a client's location, a mileage charge applies. This fee is calculated based on the current IRS mileage rate, multiplied by the total distance traveled to and from the client's workplace. It's important to note that travel time is not billed unless productive work is conducted during the journey. Moreover, each on-site visit incurs a minimum billing of one hour.

We value the opportunity to discuss how our services can meet your needs. As such, initial consultations to explore our offerings are provided complimentary, affirming our commitment to accessibility and client satisfaction.
