Happy Clients

The Good Sheppard sorts life out and saves you money. Francesca works with me personally and she also manages my business finances, from vat to tax, invoicing and forecasts. She spends time looking for savings for me, from car, health, home and travel insurances to transferring my utilities. Small or large, nothing is too much trouble and she is 100% trustworthy. I’ve recommended her to two other companies, both of which are delighted with her services.

All of our work is aimed at meeting the particular requirements of each client, so fees can be flexible.

As a guide, our basic charges are:  £25 per hour. After the first hour, we only charge on quarterly hour increments – so you can be assured of value for money.

Some of our clients opt for a package or retainer – but we can discuss anything from a one-off project to a longer-term relationship. And we don’t charge a membership fee.
