Services & Pricing
In our world, it’s not just about month or year end. It’s about making sure that every day you and your business have the cash and insight to achieve your and your investors’ goals. What we do is about so much more than just delivering the numbers — we translate the numbers to better help you grow your business and deliver a strategic consulting resource when you need it.
What does this mean? On a practical level, this can mean delivering a service as your part-time Finance Director. Or we can support you with a complete outsourced finance department model with management accounts and bookkeeping, or even be your finance business partner or CEO confidante.
Services include but are not limited to:
Whatever the solutions and services, we become an integral part of your team and business.
What we don’t do:
- Tax Planning and Audits (but we will manage the process with trusted suppliers)
- Take on a client for under £1000 a month in fees
- Stay at arms’ length from your business
This isn’t us being fussy, this is just us being honest and transparent right from the start. And that’s what you get from us. Honesty. We will always tell you like it is and never hide from the difficult conversations. After all, the success of your business means the success of our business.
Your outsourced finance department solution
Leonard Business Services supports sophisticated start-ups and growing corporations with outsourced services, direction and solutions for their business finance support needs. What we do is about so much more than just delivering the numbers — we translate the information the numbers give so our clients can achieve sustainable growth.

Our clients are all very different and so it is impossible to put them into a box and give them a neat set of packaged services. Or a standard price for what we do. (We wish we could as it would make our marketing much easier!)
Here are the main ways we support businesses:
A lot of our clients come from traditional ‘hands-on’ industries like manufacturing, construction and waste management. But at the same time we also support bright young things with incredible ideas for their tech business. (And yes, we do want to pilot their products for them.)
Peeling back the onion to allow you to take control
This phase can often take 3 months. It is where we get really hands on with the great, good and the hidden-behind-the-stairs-cupboard-not-so-good-bits of your business. Unlike many accountancy firms, we don’t finish our work at numbers. We look at processes, bottlenecks, personalities and anything which is going to limit the ability of your business to trade profitability and hit your personal objectives for the business. You will know we have got to the end of this phase because typically you have seen sustainable fixes put in place. And more often than not, asked us to step in as part of your finance function. (If this hasn’t been requested already!)
This phase typically costs £3000+
Shining a light on the numbers to allow prompt decision making.
Once we’ve looked at every part of the business, we are often then asked to become a fully-outsourced or partly outsourced finance function. This can include accounts receivable, accounts payable, bookkeeping, management accounts, daily cash flow management, KPI dashboards, forecasting, negotiating finance, attendance at board meetings, etc. These services tend to start from £1800 per month up to £5000 per month. It simply depends on how much time you need from the principals in the business.
Accelerating your business progress.
Special Projects for if and when scenarios arise. This includes supporting acquisitions and mergers, selling off, and exit planning. As these come up as the business is growing, and aren’t part of the everyday, rates are bespoke and subject to discussion for the proceedings and pricing.
