What does a personal consultation involve?

The clients themselves determine the topics of the personal consultation. In a face-to-face meeting or online conference call, the client is guaranteed a personal and tailored approach and answers to business questions posed by the advisor. The client has the possibility to send his/her questions to the advisor in advance. The personal consultation includes an hour-long discussion on topics and questions chosen by the client. Consultation does not include any form of written output.

Following the personal consultation, the client has the opportunity to agree on a broader, resp. a more formalised level of legal, tax or accounting advice.

For whom (not) are face-to-face consultations appropriate?

Consultations are intended primarily for smaller and medium-sized Slovak entrepreneurs who are looking for a quick and straightforward orientation in some of the above-mentioned issues.

As some topics of less demanding content can be grasped relatively comprehensively in a consultation, in such cases the consultation can be expected to provide final answers to specific questions. Consultations are also designed for industry professionals (e.g.: attorneys, tax advisors and accountants) who are looking for inspiration or brainstorming on a professional topic.

A number of advisory topics cannot be answered with an instant and straightforward answer without more detailed analysis. One reason is the standard legal and tax complexity of the issue or topic, which requires more effort and time from the advisor. The second reason is the price. Consultations are charged at a relatively low rate for the know-how offered, so the client cannot expect to receive full advice on complex issues for this amount, covered by professional indemnity and insurance for the advice given.
