I went in to get consultation on purchasing an existing business and spoke with one of the accountants for about an hour.
He talked about his time in the service for around half the time and about the business for the balance.
I gave him the P/L statement and tax information.
I received his bill today for $750.00, with no itemized information about what he specifically reviewed or for how long.
He did send me an email that was about as informative as mud though.
He should have been up front with me about his rates and time needed to do this work.
I am not cheap, and appreciate his skill and time, however, for what little information I got from his research in return is outrageous.
