Bookkeepers usually charge between $40 to $250 p/hour depending on the type of services you need and their skills/experience. They may also charge weekly/monthly retainers or fixed fees for bundled or ongoing services. 

A monthly bookkeeping package is likely going to cost you around $300 to $600, but again, it really depends on your business needs and the services you need help with.
