Tired of trying to find the answers?

We take care of business.  Giving you clarity and confidence – so you can focus on the parts of your business you really enjoy.

You’re trying really hard to make your business work, you’ve had some success, but it’s taken sacrifice.  You’ve given up family time, holidays, financial security.  Running a business was supposed to give you more free time and more financial security.

Business is hardwork, we’re not going to pretend it’s not. At some point though it becomes tiring trying to work it all out on your own, doesn’t it?




Clarity where you need it most

Your business doesn’t need to be complicated to be successful.  In fact, we reckon keeping it simple is the best option, do you agree?

You need a clear and simple service that has your back.  Picture being absolutely clear on what you want AND how to get it.  That’s exactly what we want for you.

  • Clarity on where your business is right now
  • Clarity on what you want to achieve
  • Clarity on how to get there

And just as important, Confidence.  Confidence that what you want is possible and you can achieve it.

How much clarity have you got over your business finances right now? 

Are we right for you?

You truly care about your clients and want to deliver high quality care & support. 

You know you need to make money in your business but you sometimes find it hard to balance this with meeting the needs of your clients.

You want to work with someone who you can build a relationship with, who understands the care sector.

You’re ready to make the changes needed to take care of your business.

Or maybe you’re just getting started and what to get the right support in place from the beginning.




What our customers say

“We’ve been working with Fresh Clarity since March / April 2020, and it’s the best decision we’ve made. The staff are so efficient and great at communicating. Nothing is too much trouble. We’d be lost without them. Keep up the fab work!”

Katie Doyle, Cross Care

“We came to Fresh Clarity for help with bookkeeping, but quickly realised they offered so much more. Within months, we received really helpful, practical advice about how to streamline our back-office, make the most of technology and improve our business strategy.”

“Working with Marie and her team is a breath of fresh air. They really care about their clients, they’re tech savvy, they’re very proactive and they’ve helped me get on top of my finances, which gives me real control. I’ve gone from loathing accounts to looking forward to them!”
