Every engagement is unique for a bookkeeping firm. Clients have different expectations regarding phone support, response time, and how often their books are updated. That doesn’t mean you need to spend a lot of time figuring out the pricing for each new client.

Jetpack Workflow has created a free bookkeeping price template that will bill your clients accurately without starting from scratch on every bid. The template can be customized to your company’s pricing structure and is meant as a starting point for your bidding process.

What to Include in Your Pricing Quote to Win New Clients

When you're putting together a pricing quote for a potential new client, there are a few key things to keep in mind. You want to make sure you’re attracting new clients. And you also want to ensure you’re being compensated for all of your efforts.

Note that this pricing template is intended for you to determine the pricing for your services and is not necessarily meant to be delivered to your clients as an outline of all potential costs. Any bookkeeping engagement should be outlined in a full proposal, and you should have a signed engagement letter in hand prior to starting any work for a new client.

You should also be willing to update your rates over time. While you may offer your services at a lower rate when you’re just starting out, your rates should increase as your calendar fills up.

When creating your pricing quote for clients, be sure to include all of the relevant costs associated with the project. It can be hard to price new projects, which is why you will find many of the standard bookkeeping tasks included in the template.There is also a line item for an additional charge for phone consultation and coordination with CPAs for tax prep. Each of these activities can take a significant portion of your time. You want to make sure you’ve included all potential costs so you do not need to go back to your client later for additional charges or lose money on the engagement.

Next, give some thought to what kind of discount, if any, you're willing to offer. Keep in mind that your goal is to win the business. You don't want to low-ball your quote too much. At the same time, you don't want to price yourself out of the market. 

Once you’ve determined a total price for all the add-on services, you may opt to include a discount for bundling multiple services or multiple companies. In the end, it’s up to you whether you want to offer a discount.

Finally, you need to decide how you want to bill the client. You can bill incrementally by creating invoices each month for the services rendered during the prior month. You can also calculate the average monthly cost for the year and bill your clients a flat fee each month (which is calculated in the template). The right type of billing will depend on whether you want to closely track your own time and your clients’ expectations.
