New Client - High tax bill with me

I have a new client for whom I prepared a first set of accs and corp tax return. His corporation tax bill in his eyes is very high. I checked everthing to ensure I got all the bases covered and I have.

His tax bill is £3.5k higher than his previous corp tax. The key reason for this is  no 100% FYA for the year in question.

I can see client is not all happy with me.

I am sure others have come across this. Any ideas how to handle this?
