The why and how of practice engagement letter

Your guide to implementing fixed fee in your accounting firm

Practice Ignition has been a lifesaver for our firm. Since we started using it, the amount of time I spend doing monthly billing has declined from 8 hours to 1 hour. We have almost no accounts receivable, because the majority of our clients pay up front when they accept their proposal, or are on monthly recurring auto-draft."

Absolute game changer. The ease of setting up proposals, engagements and recurring billing make this an absolute essential in the All In Advisory cloud stack. It's integration with Xero to deliver automation is the icing on the cake and is a great way to provide a seamless professional first impression to potential clients."

How Practice Ignition works:

Practice Ignition automatically amends your client engagement letters based on service templates and standardized terms. You’ll save time and Practice Ignition’s integration with Xero and QuickBooks Online means you’ll eliminate the need for copy and paste or ‘Find and Replace.’

Our onboarding team will help you set up your template library and standardized terms, including the CPA Australia template. Practice Ignition will then automatically update the following details for each new proposal:

Correct contact details of clients


A consistent description and scope of services across your clients


An outline of agreed fees and payment terms - retainer, on completion, or fixed recurring for example


Your signature

Your client will then be able to:

Review and sign the engagement letter on any device. They’ll even get reminder emails if they’re slow to sign.


Enter their payment details - both direct debit and credit cards are accepted (fees apply)
