If I get a written estimate from a professional accountant

Customer Question

If I get a written estimate from a professional accountant is it legally binding? I would like advice over the phone and then I can give you a full explanation.

My name isXXXXX and I'm happy to help with your question today.

Why have the costs rise ten-fold?

Presumably more work has been done than originally estimated?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
The accountant had all the information before giving me the quote but I believe he didn't read the files correctly. Is it possible I can ring you as it is difficult to explain?
Expert:  Alice H replied 3 years ago.
Unfortunately not. We can only assist online I'm afraid.
