WHAT IS THE FEE BUILDER PROGRAM?

Fee Builder provides UK accountancy practitioners with exclusive access to ideas, resources and strategies to maintain and develop the value and range of services offered to clients. Currently, July 2020, this is focused on providing subscribers with ideas and resources to help employers consider their options as the furlough scheme unwinds.

We have added two new features: 

    • A 10-Minute Task -  each month we will set a simple 10 minute task to demonstrate that you can take small steps to implement the benefits of our strategies. For July, the task is to make one phone call.
    • Quarterly call with Bob Edwards - Bob is offering to speak with each subscriber on any practice development matter once a quarter. This could be related to Fee Builder implementation or any other issue practitioners may want to discuss.

In the past three months we have covered the following topics

Client testimonial

We have been working with Bob and his team for many years now. 

The introduction of the Fee Builder has proven to be a really comprehensive and useful tool for us to easily implement on a monthly basis. 

As with most accountancy firms, there is not always time to dedicate to content writing and generating additional strategies to attract new clients or cross-selling with current clients.  

This is what the Fee Builder has enabled us to do.

Client testimonial

"During my 30 year career technology has always driven fee levels down . Today is no exception . Bob has looked at some innovative ways to generate additional fees . These are good old fashioned ways to look after the clients . Easy wins that will result in additional fees for accountants."


Paul Miller: Cornish Accounting - April 2019

Client testimonial

The ideas and strategies that the Landmark Fee Builder program have provided have made me think outside the box. Many are ideas that I would not have thought of in isolation.

 

For example, we have taken on the notion that at this difficult time it may be prudent to consider limited use of pro-bono services for clients. When we have done this we have had a good response and whilst this does not add to monthly billing it does demonstrate that we are willing to help clients that are adversely affected by the present disruption. Hopefully, this is an investment in the long-term value of practice goodwill.

 

Simon Dimblebee, Thain Wildbur - June 2020

Client testimonial

"Included in Landmark’s Fee Builder workbook are some incredibly valuable concepts that can be used to create additional income from existing clients, and explained in an easy to read, clear and concise manner. The guide gives practical advice on how to implement Bob’s strategies and do not require big changes to your practice systems, just a different mindset and a few small changes."

Unwinding Furlough – damage limitation begins

Thus far we have been encouraged by government to take advantage of various grants and loans to support our practice and clients during the COVID lock-down period. Of most relevance for the majority of clients has been the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS), commonly referred to as the furlough scheme. Last month, Rishi Sunak announced

Losing clients? Downward pressure on fees?

If there is one result that practitioners desire it is winning a new client. There is nothing quite like the buzz and excitement that new business brings. At the other end of the scale, there is nothing more depressing than losing a client. Fall-out from COVID disruption Many firms we have spoken to in the
