Modern business demands modern software. With award winning cloud based accounting software from Xero or FreeAgent, together with the hundreds of available add-on apps, we’ll create you the capacity for wherever you want to take your business. It’s quick to convert easily from Sage, QuickBooks, Excel or any other accounting software you use and we’re readily available to guide you through the process and provide training in addition to the wealth of free support and ‘how to’ videos provided by Xero and FreeAgent.

What makes us different?

We view ourselves as that little bit different – not in what we do – but the way we do it. We specialise in delivering simple and more transparent accounting services to business owners who demand a ‘real-time’ solution to the accounting, compliance and reporting needs of their business. Integrated across two independent firms with shorter decision making chains and supported by cutting-edge software, we’re set free to work remotely ‘in-the-cloud’ around the individual needs of our clients.

Our Fees Explained

THEY SAY accountants will cost the earth.    WE SAY it’s time you knew the truth.

Are we the cheapest?… No, nor are we the most expensive.

We don’t hide from the fact if you look hard enough you will always find a cheaper firm but we do like to think that our fees are transparent, fair and fully reflective of the level of service you can expect to receive. Simply, from end of year company accounts and tax return compliance, monthly bookkeeping and VAT returns, to a fully outsourced finance department and virtual FD advisory, we offer a range of fixed price packages with flexible payment options to suit your needs.
We’ll gladly give you an idea of our fees, simply by phone or email if you prefer?
Not local to our offices ?  Not an issue. We work ‘in-the-cloud’ and can manage all your requirements remotely.
Thinking of switching accountants?
Making the switch to CORNEL is easy:
  • 3. Call us on 0203 074 1134, request a call back or email us
  • 2. We’ll talk through your requirements and agree a fixed-fee
  • 1. With your permission, we’ll arrange a smooth handover

We’re ready when you are.
