Outsourcing or learning

a service to suit you

Do you worry about Bookkeeping? Is it an area you are unsure about and don’t know where to start? Do you have better things to do with your time?

No matter what your reason is, I offer a comprehensive service for bookkeeping, software and training to help your business.

Whether you want to outsource your bookkeeping or do it yourself with some help and guidance, I’m always on hand to help out if you get stuck. 

So let me take the bookkeeping fear away.

Outsource or not?

Bookkeeping is unfortunately a key necessity for any business. It can be time-consuming and difficult if you have not done it before. For many business owners this means outsourcing is the best option. But if your business is small or perhaps a side-hustle at the moment, could it be a good time to learn whilst there are fewer transactions to process?

I will discuss your options with you and we can decide together which route to take.

Which software?

As an accredited Xero advisor I find it to be the most user friendly of all the cloud based bookkeeping software and would recommend this in most instances. There is an entry level version with step-ups from there.

However, it may be that you do not need software at all.

I will discuss your options with you.


Understanding your bookkeeping system is vital, knowing the shortcuts can save a lot of time. I will teach you the basics of Xero, making sure it is set up in the most efficient way for your business. I will not then leave you to fend for yourself, I will be on hand to help out when you have questions.

Xero also provide a number of online courses and tutorials and these are a great source of help too.

If outsourcing your bookkeeping is your preference then I offer a cost-effective solution for your business. As the records will be maintained on Xero you will have access at all times, so you can see who owes you money and who you owe money to. You can check on your profit levels, turnover and costs at any time. We will discuss how best to operate so that the process is as efficient and stress free as possible. You will get accurately maintained records, including calculation and submission of vat returns if applicable. Prices for bookkeeping services depend upon the volume and complexity of the work. I will discuss costs with you before any decision is made.

In-house training & support

If you prefer to do your bookkeeping in house and need some help. I will give you any support that you need. As an accredited partner of Xero, I will help you set it up and teach the basics of its operation and of course will always help if you have any questions about it. By authorising your accountant with access it will also mean I can view your accounts at any time which makes it easier to provide up to date advice and help, whilst also improving communication between us at your year-end. Prices for training sessions will be quoted for on request.

I strive to make your books 'Accountant approved'
