Here to help your business fly
Farnell Clarke is a national firm of chartered certified accountants practice working from offices in Norwich and Lowestoft. As you would expect, our team is experienced and well qualified: we know our business and are committed to delivering a professional service.
But we’re definitely not your typical accountants.
Pop in and see us for a coffee and you won’t find an intimidating receptionist and an office full of sharp suits. You will find a group of friendly and knowledgeable people who really care about helping our clients to succeed.
A fixed, transparent approach to pricing
We know that many business owners avoid seeking advice from their accountants because they are worried about the bill they’ll receive. That’s why our approach to pricing is different.
When we begin working with a new client we agree a fixed monthly fee with them. This not only spreads the cost of essential accountancy tasks, such as tax returns and VAT filing, but it also covers day to day advice and guidance.
Knowing there are no extra invoices means our clients aren't afraid to give us a call to ask for help or chat through an idea.
We want our clients to think of us as an asset to their businesses, not an unpleasant - albeit necessary - expense.
That’s why our desire to inspire the confidence and earn the trust of our clients is fundamental to the way we work. Of course we meet deadlines and provide thoughtful advice; you would expect that from any professional accountancy practice. But more than that, we aim to make a positive difference to every client we work with.
Because we understand how important it is to have specialists on your side we have a dedicated tax team within our business. David Shawyer & Co have extensive experience in both UK and US tax planning as well as niche client groups such as offshore workers and expatriates.
Making technology work for you
We've been at the forefront of cloud accounting for more than six years. Working with some of the most innovative technology companies in the UK, we have put together a collection of online accounting tools and apps to make our clients' lives simpler.
We utilise a range of smart and user-friendly online accountancy software solutions which are available to all of our clients. The software allows them to manage their bookkeeping in-house and provides real time management information. But because our solutions are hosted in the cloud, clients who choose to pass over their bookkeeping to us can still have daily access should they wish; staying in complete control at all times.
We work in partnership the UK's market leading accounting software companies including Xero, KashFlow and QuickBooks Online so you can choose the solution that suits your business best.
Receipt Bank is a fantastic mobile app and on-line tool which works seamlessly with our bookkeeping solutions to help clients manage their purchases and invoices. The days of pockets full of receipts are long gone because, with Receipt Bank, you simply take a photo and upload it to your accounts software. The relevant data is captured automatically.
Our job is to help you do YOUR job, so lets talk about the type of technology that will work for you.
Our team is packed full of skills, experience and enthusiasm. Every member of staff at Farnell Clarke undergoes regular training to ensure that our skills are up to date.
Our offices are in Norwich and Lowestoft but if you want us to work at your offices once in a while, or on a regular basis, we’re happy to do this.
