How much support do you need?

There is no such thing as a typical business, but to give an indication some clients require as little as 2 hour's support a week, some as much as 1 day a week.  By allowing you complete flexibility you can increase or decrease the level of support you need as often as you need to.

How Hi-Tech do you want to be?

Depending on your appetite for technology you can either fill out our simple "Money In vs. Money Out" spreadsheet, and email it to us each month along with your receipts, or you if you would like to use something a little more powerful, and have a liking for technology you can manage all aspects of your bookkeeping using award winning FreeAgent software. You will have access to your own Free Agent Online Bookkeeping account, allowing you manage the day to day administration of your business, with our guidance and help whenever you need it. Watch this 1 min video to see how it works.

Spreadsheets vs Software?

Spreadsheets are OK if you have a very simple business.  All you need to do is record how much the business spends (expenses) and how much the business makes (sales).  We can do the rest for you and ensure you pay the right amount of tax at the right time.

Bookkeeping software offers a lot more in terms of tools, controls and features for running a business.  Some of the features of our online bookkeeping software are as follows:

  • Your data is available 24/7 on any device. No need to install anything, the software is fully cloud based meaning your data is accessible, secure, and always backed up.

  • Manage your clients, contacts and projects.

  • Produce and send estimates and invoices, including an online payment facility to get paid faster or by direct debit.

  • Manage expenses and receipts - digitally.

  • Connect directly to your bank accounts to see a real time view of transactions and automatically reconcile transactions on a daily basis.
