Taking Care of Bookkeeping

Based in Wokingham, we offer our bookkeeping services to micro-businesses and small businesses in Wokingham and the surrounding areas.

If your business is now of the size where the time spent on administration is hindering your ability to grow or is causing you to sacrifice one too many evenings and weekends then it may be time to consider using the services of a bookkeeper. By using our service you remain in control of the cost and avoid the need to employ someone until such time as the workload and financial position of your business justifies this. For now, you may only need someone for a few hours per week, a month or a quarter, so why employ an extra member of staff when you can pay just for what you need.

There are times of the month and year that may demand a bit more time than usual such as finalising monthly accounts, running payroll, calculating VAT returns, end of year accounts preparation folders for your accountants. Again, using a 3rd party bookkeeping services such as ours allows this and is a far better and cheaper option than for example recruiting a part-time bookkeeper for a set number of hours each week.

I have 15+ years experience of using Sage Line 50 and Sage Payroll, Sage One Cloud Payroll, HMRC's own PAYE Basic Tools, and am competent in Microsoft Applications including Office Accounting 2009 and more recently I am becoming familiar with Xero. If you already use an accounts package then I will learn it quickly, if you just use spreadsheets then that's fine too, and if you are considering which software solution may be the best then I'm happy to help - they pretty much all do the same thing!

I have 30+ years of experience working in accounts departments, and over 20 years experience working in small and micro-businesses. TCOB Ltd is an example of a micro-business and when I'm not doing bookkeeping work for clients or myself, TCOB also offers a safety signs service, in which I work on a part-time basis. I am the only member of the business, and I have no plans to change this, meaning you are guaranteed an ongoing and personal relationship. This real-world experience means I have encountered and will continue to encounter many of the same bookkeeping requirements as your business.

Temporary Cover of Bookkeeper

If you need cover for the temporary loss of a member of staff to maternity leave or illness perhaps, then I can help with this also provided that there is some flexibility with regards hours of day and per week worked and remote working in the main is possible. Cheaper and more flexible than recruiting a temporary replacement.

Taking Care of Business

Having run my own business for several years I am aware of other difficulties that may arise, such as missing a call or a delivery when you have an appointment or other business to attend to or having to choose whether to sacrifice holidays or business. Where possible, I may be able to provide assistance in these areas too, as well as general office administration.

Many thanks for popping by and reading about the services I offer and if you think I maybe able to help ease your workload and help your business grow then please call 0118 978 5333 or email. When we discuss your requirements we can agree the probable amount of time required.
