Far from complicated fixed fees

We like fixed fees. That’s because they encourage our clients to keep in touch without the risk of any nasty invoicing surprises allowing you to focus on growing your business.

Each one of our clients is unique; they all have different needs, different ambitions and different ways of working. That’s why we don’t offer rigid monthly packages and expect businesses to settle for one that almost fits the bill.

Instead, we will devise a completely bespoke package that will meet your exact needs.

For individuals looking for help with their personal UK or US tax affairs we will give you a fixed fee quote based on your unique circumstances.

We’ve put together some example packages to show what we can do for you.

Sole Trade & Partnership

We understand that a limited company isn't the right business set up for everyone.

Perhaps you're running your company part time or you operate a lifestyle business that fits in around other commitments. Alternatively, working in partnership with a trusted colleague or friend can be a great way achieve business success.

But even if you've made the decision not to become a limited company you still need to meet your financial and legal obligations to stay compliant.

Sole trader packages from

£30 per month

Services may include:

End of year company accounts

Personal tax return

Xero, Receipt Bank or 1Tap software

Ad-hoc advice and support

Partnership packages from

£70 per month

Services may include:

End of year company accounts

Partnership tax return

Personal tax return for two partners

Xero and Receipt Bank software

Ah-hoc advice and support


We understand that being a contractor is a very specific way of working. We’ve tailored our fees for contractors with this in mind, to meet the needs of professionals who operate under their own limited company, selling their services to other organisations.

We’ve given examples below but of course we will create a bespoke package to suit your needs.

You’re a professional with one main client and a turnover of £50k. You issue one invoice a month and make a low number of purchases. All you need is to stay compliant, in the most tax efficient way, and have someone to call on for advice whenever you need.


Annual Limited company accounts

Corporation tax return

Monthly PAYE for one

Personal tax return for one director

Xero (starter) & Receipt Bank subscription

Annual confirmation statement (inc filing fee)

Ad hoc advice & support

£96+VAT per month

Your business is not quite as straightforward; multiple clients and a turnover of £95k. You just want to take a photo of your receipts and the rest of your bookkeeping, plus VAT returns, will all be done for you.

As per the previous package, plus:


Quarterly bookkeeping

Quarterly bank reconciliations

Quarterly VAT returns

Xero (standard) & Receipt Bank subscription

£144+VAT per month

Limited Businesses

Of course there certain obligations that every limited company has, but there is a whole lot more we can do for you.

We’ve prepared some examples of what your monthly Farnell Clarke package could look like. Rather like a set menu in your favourite restaurant, you can add extra items, swap things that you’re not so keen on or ask us to create something especially for you.

Keeping you Compliant

You actually don’t mind a bit of bookkeeping, especially when it means you get to play with the latest accounting technology!

Your business is now turning over £75k, with a small team, but you have a firm handle on things so are looking to us to get the boring stuff done to keep your business compliant. Oh, and be at the end of the phone for your questions throughout the month.
