Fixed fees and price lists

I want to draw up a price list for my services and I want to be able to publish this on my website and marketing material. Previously I have quoted fixed prices to clients after a review of their records and discussing their requirements, based on the usual hourly rate x hours methodology.

I can see some firms quote monthly prices on their websites, such as sole traders accounts and tax return for £40 per month. How is this possible given that the size and nature of each business varies considerably, not to mention the quality of records?

I think such price lists can only apply to businesses who adopt a particular method of bookkeeping (e.g. online software or pro-forma spreasheets). But I really want to give this a stab. Any advice or suggesstions?
