How flexible are your bookkeeping services?

We are very much customer-focussed and our clients’ are the foremost in our priority list and our culture.

We listen to any changing scenario of our clients and we adapt our services to the needs of our clients. We ask you what you want from us and give you that service.

Wouldn’t I be better off hiring an in-house bookkeeper?

In most cases, no. To hire an in-house bookkeeper, first you must find that person, check their credentials, negotiate a salary, hire and train them, and manage them.

That can be very expensive both in time and money for a business owner. You must also provide office space, a desk, a computer, and software for them to use.

You incur payroll tax expenses, holiday and sick pay, and the cost of other benefits for that employee. If the person you hire is part-time, you must manage their hours and will only have access to them when they are at work. If they go on holiday, get sick, or leave your employ, you may have a large gap in your accounting and payroll.

What if I need “catch-up” accounting?

Most businesses are a few months behind in their bookkeeping.

That is precisely why they need us – because it is difficult to stay on top of your books and run a demanding business! It’s simple – you send us the source documents (bank statements, credit card statements, etc.) for the missing months, and we will take it from there, catching you up and getting you current so you have an accurate picture of your business finances.
