It's still Ok not to be OK

Posted by Jane Franklin on Tuesday, July 7, 2020,

I’m not having a good day today. No reason really, just that the past few months are beginning to catch up with me I think. I work from home most of the time anyway but since the outbreak of Covid-19 I haven’t been to see the clients where I work in their offices, and I haven’t been anywhere else either! I thought I was Ok with it, sitting here at my desk day after day trying to scrape enough work together to pay the bills while my clients struggle to keep going. And it’s been fine, b...

If the events of the past weeks have left you uncertain of your future, and of your present job, perhaps now might be the time to take the bull by the horns and think about starting up your own business doing something unique to you. It may be something that has always been just a hobby but with a bit of time and effort could turn into a new business and way of life.

Posted by Jane Franklin on Friday, May 29, 2020,

I am so lucky to live in beautiful Somerset, with lots of fresh air and space and as I already work from home most of the time, things have not been so different for me work wise. I have been very happy to help my clients keep things going, and as the claims for furloughed staff have started to come through ...

DIY Bookkeeping or not?

Posted by Jane Franklin on Friday, February 21, 2020,

I haven’t done a blog for a while mainly because Bookkeeping isn’t one of the “sexy” occupations that everyone wants to hear about. There’s only so much you can say about Tax and VAT etc etc.

 A lot is made these days in adverts and social media etc about the joys of doing your own accounts and running your whole business from your mobile phone or tablet including VAT returns and Payrolls. If you can do that then good on you if you are confident enough to do it then that’s fin...
