...and why would I need one?
What does a bookkeeper do and why would I need one? I get asked this a lot!
If you’re imagining a little old lady who collects and orders your receipts, you’re not wholly wrong but as a bookkeeper I offer so much more…
First and foremost I give you back your time. I take a job you hate and free up your time to spend on growing your business, having fun with your family and friends, living your best life! Imagine all the things you could be doing instead...
I work with you regularly which means you have timely updates on what is going on and how your business is doing. No more waiting for the accountant to send something you don’t understand several months after the year end. I give you the information you want, when you want it, be that daily, weekly, monthly or quarterly. I’ll even help you to work out what you want to know. Don’t accept an annual service if you need information more regularly.
I’m there for you to ask questions to, without starting the clock and sending a huge bill (if you’ve been there you know!). I’ll explain difficult concepts like upcoming changes, taxation, payment on account, allowable business expenses, capital allowances and anything else you want to understand. If you don’t want to understand, rest assured that I do and I’ll be keeping you compliant with the rules.
I work as a part of your team and I want your business to do well. I’ll process the transactions and be involved in the day to day running of the business, looking for errors, ensuring payments aren’t missed and chasing up those who owe you. I’ll give you the peace of mind to know the books are done correctly and you’re not at risk of late payment fines
