I’m a qualified bookkeeper who specialises in meeting the needs of small companies. With ten years of accounting experience, my aim is to provide my clients with a friendly, flexible and cost-effective service.
I trained in Swindon and Bristol, gaining full membership with the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) in 2008. I went on to obtain a first-class pass in Sage computerised accounts and also passed my IAB (Institute of Certified Book keepers) payroll exams with distinction. My office is now based in Royal Wootton Bassett and I work with clients from Swindon, across Wiltshire, and nationally.
Many of my clients are sole traders, small businesses and charity organisations. My job is to keep their accounting records in good order, so they know where they are financially and are confident they’re operating legally and in compliance with HMRC. That leaves them free to concentrate on their business.
I like to get to know my clients and their businesses. Apart from just being a pleasant way of doing things, if I understand your way of doing things, it makes bookkeeping more efficient!
I’ve built up a long-term business relationship with many of my clients. Clients return year on year knowing that they can get all their bookkeeping needs sorted – and that’s ideal for both parties.
I understand that for many business owners, bookkeeping is a bit of a mystery. They’re not always completely clear on what their own numbers mean – and what’s worse, they don’t like to ask! That’s a shame, because those numbers give them insight into their own business or organisation. So, one of the goals of my service is to make it a bit more human and accessible.
I encourage my clients to get in touch with any queries or concerns they have. And because I know this can be difficult to do during a busy day, I don’t work Monday to Friday, but instead fit around my clients’ needs.
