$25 per hour seems eminently reasonable!
You get what you pay for. I pay my part time CPAs 30-35 per hour and that doesn't just include "charge time' (billable, but continuing education (sign up fees are about 1100 per individual plus time and at least 40 hrs per year to keep CPA license active), holiday (apx 4 hrs per holiday), rent , tax research service (about 8000 per year), tax and accounting programs (we aren't talking turbo tax) about 13000 per year. Then there is telephone, fax, utilities, computers (major upgrade at least once per year), etc.
A rule of thumb that has stood the test of time is you should bill out at least 3 times the hourly cost of an employee.
Just a thought.
