Limited company owner, sole trader or in a business partnership; if you’re looking for a bookkeeper you’ll want to consider what I’m about to tell you.
Remember that a good bookkeeper is an investment, not a cost.
Undoubtedly there are people out there who will do a basic job for less than I charge.
However, chances are they’re having to service a lot of clients in order to hit their revenue targets.
Do they have the time or inclination to really get to know you and understand your business?
Will they care enough to speak with you regularly, to keep you updated on how your business is performing, and be there when you need them?
You should also know that whoever does your bookkeeping has access to a lot of your personal / sensitive information, and my AAT accountant’s license is your insurance policy against malpractice.
By maintaining your business records and taking care of your invoicing, credit control, purchases, VAT, and payroll, I’m freeing up your time so you can focus on sales and other higher value activities that you need to do to keep your business running.
I’m enabling you to make sound financial decisions based on real-time information, not poor decisions based on last year’s accounts, emotion and guesswork.
And I’m making sure that your accounts and tax returns are free from silly errors that could trigger an HMRC investigation into your affairs, grinding your business to a halt and costing you a small fortune.
If you’re looking for a bookkeeper, choose someone who can be a trusted advisor.
Someone who sees you as a person rather than just a case number.
Someone you can rely on to answer the phone and be there for you no matter what… like me.

“As a small business it is important to always have financial clarity and often it is difficult to try and do this yourself. Paul has worked with us for several years and has streamlined and organised all of our accounting systems. He provides us with a complete accountancy service and is very professional in his approach as well as being a likeable guy.” - D. Walsh, Director. DualTEC Services Limited, Keighley. (Google review)
“Paul has done a great job putting my accounts on to Sage Business Cloud, and also got a discount for me. I like that the software is MTD compatible and I can access it from anywhere. Paul sorts out all my invoices, does my bookkeeping and produces reports every quarter (or whenever I need them). He is friendly, reliable and easy to work with - it's good to have him on board." - C. Milne, Proprietor. CAM Properties, Carnforth. (Google review)
