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. You can focus on growing your businesses in the knowledge that your book-keeping, management reporting and annual accounts are taken care of.
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 devise a completely bespoke package that meets each client’s needs exactly.
But because the majority of our clients operate through limited companies, and there certain obligations that every limited company has, 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.

What colour suits you?
We haven’t 'graded' our sample packages or suggested the size limited company that they might be right for: that’s because they're all equally valuable, depending on the needs of your business or organisation. Instead, we’ve allocated each package a colour so you can tell us which is closest to what you need.
This might not be the way that accountants usually operate; but then Farnell Clarke are far from your typical accountants.
Pick a colour below as a starting point and we’ll build the perfect monthly package for you. As you grow the package can grow with you; if you decide to change your business approach the package can be adapted to suit your needs. It’s all about working smart and being flexible.

Services for contractors
We understand that being a contractor is a very specific way of working. That’s why we’ve put together two dedicated packages to meet the needs of professionals who operate under their own limited company, selling their services to other organisations.
Our two contractor packages provide a starting point. But of course you can tailor our contractor bundles to suit your needs exactly.
Services for sole traders and partnerships
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.
If you are a sole trader you still have accounts to take care of and financial obligations to meet. We'll provide you with the advice you need to ensure you stay compliant.
We have therefore developed packages designed just for you.
