    Clearsky accounting (formerly Quay) - price hike

    Hello

    Clearsky Accounting have written to me informing me that their prices are going up from £66 (ex VAT) to £120 (ex VAT) per month from 1st June. Obviously this is taking the p1ss a bit too much, so can anyone recommend an alternative to Clearsky?

    Thanks in advance :-)

    No wonder ClearSky are advertising so hard - massive price rises

    I just got a letter from them saying they are about to double the amount they charge me, as their freeze on fixed-price accountancy ends. This freeze has only been in place 3 years so 100% increase in 3 years is a pretty sweet deal for them... can't imagine many of us can do a year-on-year increase of 25% to our rates (actually it's more like 26%).

    I've been pretty happy with the service but they have to be hoping I let it go through automatically... must be others here in the same boat, what are your thoughts?

      Got the same letter this morning. Not happy. I will be looking for something cheaper.

        Oh!

        I expect mine will be on the door mat when I get home.

        Will check it out.

          Looking for another clearsky replacement asap

          Got my letter this morning and am furious. Started to look for another accounting company. Is 2 weeks notice sufficient since I signed up with Quay prior to the takeover?
          Vote with your feet.

            Clearsky Price hike

            Have been quite encouraged by the competition out there. Already found other companies ie Nixon Williams or K&B Accounting who offer the full package for £75 plus vat.

              Clearsky have £95/120 packages, I don't fully understand the difference but they are planning to switch me to the £120 one, with 2 free months if I sign up for a year which works out £100. I looked at SJD and they appear to work at £95, so the 1-year deal might not be too bad if they literally do everything for me.

              Has anyone tried complaining at Clearsky yet, I wonder if it's like mobile phones where you can argue a better deal? I certainly don't intend to pay >£100/month, planning my next step.
