    Default Tax accountant fees for a small business

    I'm looking for a tax accountant to prepare and file yearly taxes for a small business.

    For those in the know, what kind of fees am I to expect? I got a quote for half a million and that's a hell no.

    Thank you guys.

    That's pretty nuts.
    When we started years ago we originally went to our city office as they offered help to foreigners .
    The account they gave us or introduced with us we've used privately in the years since. His fees are reasonable but we are in kansai. We pay roughly $50,000 a year give or take a bit.

    Do you mean half a million JPY or USD ?

    500,000 JPY for book keeping and filing is pretty reasonable. Currently on my 4th accountant.. urgh.

    filing = local + national + consumption submission at the end of the year. Usually ~ 200,000 - 300,000 JPY for a simple return. Not including payroll, or adjustment.

    I'll be going by the tax office at city hall and see if what they have to say.

    That's how we met our accountant the first year we went thru out local city office helpful without doubt and after that we became his client and gives us a great rate.
