Hi, I was wondering if anyone could help me with a pricing issue. I usually charge an hourly rate but have been asked by a client for a fixed rate. The client wants the first year accounts plus tax. It is for the first year of trading so quite quiet, a couple of events. The ltd company is registered with companies house but not with HMRC as yet. They are not registered for VAT and have no payroll. One bank account only. About one lever arch folder of invoices. I am quite new to dealing with limited companies so am struggling with pricing. Thanks

    This sounds like about one a half days worth of work to me

    Thanks for that Gem7321. That's really helpful and about what I was thinking too

    I would add the new frs 102 rules which apply to ltd companies has changed quite a bit, so your knowledge on this must be taken into consideration when producing the final accounts. plus the tagging element of the online filing (unless using hmrc upload software) plus tax computation .. All things to consider when pricing! I personally would be pricing this around the £500-£600 mark
    But no doubt someone may comment & tell me I'm way off :@)

    Our prices for ltd co's start at £720 + VAT so this would be our fee unless they were non-trading or we could formalise an agreement for future years with a discounted first year
