    It depends on the amount of risk and non-mechanical work the subcontractor is taking on. If just doing the bookeeping and accounts up to approval but not involved in acquiring or maintaining clients, fixing issues when they arise, consultancy/advice work, etc, I will pay a fixed fee, not a percentage.

    Yes bookkeeping and accounts upto approval, so what is an appropriate hourly rate to charge the accountants for doing th work?
    I understand I can not charge my usual hourly rate charged to A client direct but as it is more than bookkeeping I don’t what to be paid a bookkeepers hourly wage?
