The importance of being ( a bookkeeper)

Posted by Jane Franklin on Thursday, July 15, 2021,
It's so important now more than ever to have a bookkeeper.
Why ? you ask .
We are fast becoming a cashless society & it's very hard to keep track of finances like this when running a business when you are involved in cash transactions.
It's also important because a bookkeeper will help keep you up to date & legal with HMRC.
Should you get an inspection from HMRC I will be on hand to answer any queries & make sure everything is brought up to date if need be.
I also work alongside your existing acco...

Working Remotely is very normal (Thank goodness for clouds)

Posted by Jane Franklin on Thursday, July 1, 2021,

There is so much uncertainty around at the moment because of the covid situation that I have decided to carry on working for the foreseeable future from home.
Since last year I have been working from my home office very successfully. I obviously have my own accounting software Sage 50, & Moneysoft Payroll, but can also access any cloud based software used by my clients. For some clients I use a VPN (virtual private network) connection and work directly into their office pc.

The benefits of work...

Given the events of the last year many of us have had the opportunity to rethink our lives. Some of you maybe thinking of starting up your own business or may even have one already.

Up to date?

Posted by Jane Franklin on Tuesday, September 8, 2020,
I like to think of myself as an up to date Bookkeeper, or at least as up to date as I can be. I use up to date software, I keep myself up to date with all the latest developments that are useful for my clients and I keep my clients compliant with HMRC and I try not to charge them too much for my efforts.

What I am not is a Bookkeeper who asks her clients to scan every single receipt and invoice to an app on their phone and then upload it to their accounts software where they can do most of the...

Covid-19 2 months in

Posted by Jane Franklin on Friday, May 29, 2020,
Here we are at the end of May and we are seeing a glimpse of what the "new normal" is going to be like. So many restrictions  to keep ourselves and others safe. For many people it has been, and will continue to be, hard to keep going. Hard to keep positive despite all the inspirational stories we hear. You may feel you can't compete with these wonderful people! All the success stories, all the winners. 

Just remember those people are like you - they worry and cry about the future for themselve...

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...
