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 fine. Or you may be one of those people who are happy to scan every single receipt and upload it to your software ready to be reconciled either by you or your Bookkeeper or Accountant.

 But what if you don’t have time to do that or you’re not confident and what you do results in your Accountant having to re-do it for you at the end of the year – and charge you for it? Why not get a Bookkeeper who is used to sorting through receipts and turning them into sensible accounts to do it for you and probably charge you less an hour than you could be charging your customers if you only had the time to do more of your own work?

 Call for a chat to see how a Bookkeeper could help you get your life back and give you time to do what you do best – run your own business.
