For the last week our team have enjoyed the company of a sixth form student on work experience. Rosie is considering accountancy as a career and wanted to experience the type of work involved.  Whilst we are not accountants we are responsible for keeping the accounts records before they are passed to an accountant so our work was a good insight to the foundations of accountancy.  This was a completely new experience for us so our bookkeepers planned carefully the things that they thought would be useful for her to see and do.…
The Christmas and New Year break is a time to reflect on our achievements in 2016 and plan what we can do differently or better in 2017. 2016 for Sandra Silk Bookkeeping was a year of good memories of our achievements, our growth and our team. One outstanding memory for me was being invited by John Glen MP to Westminster …
Why is training so valuable? We learn all the time while we go about our daily work and for us in particular we are constantly working with clients who have different types of business and different needs. Our responsibility to our clients is to know, as far as we can, the HMRC rules which could affect each of our clients. From knowing what expenses can be claimed to whether employees are receiving a benefit from the expenses they claim. We need to understand VAT rules not only in relation to the UK but also overseas sales and purchases and the VAT implications of those.…
We are always looking for efficient and cost effective ways of helping small local businesses. Whether it’s by completing timely and accurate VAT returns, taking the headache out of your payroll, getting your Auto-Enrolment sorted by your staging date or even just a chat about how the business is going over a cup of tea and a biscuit! We are here to help your business grow, which is why we have partnered with QuickBooks to bring you faster, easier accounts that you can access at your fingertips and won’t cost you the earth.…
It takes hard work and a lot of dedication to go to work and study at the same time especially when you have young children too. Two of our bookkeepers, Sarah and Ruth, have just achieved the best possible results in their Level 4 Bookkeeping and Accounting exams.…
We are very proud of our Investors in People plaque. It has pride of place in our office reception so that it can be seen by our visitors and by us every time we walk through the hallway. It reminds us what a great team we are and how hard we all worked towards achieving it. …
Sometimes you need to do something different with your day to open your mind to opportunities. So last week three of our team visited Accountex 2016 - the national accountancy exhibition and conference - at the ExCel centre in London. It was a chance to get some ideas and inspiration for developing our business and to look for additional opportunities to support our clients. …
What a fantastic month February has been for our business. A trip to Westminster to talk to MPs about auto enrolment, a new employee, a promotion for one of our team and now confirmation that we have achieved the Standard for Investors in People having met all 37 of the criteria. And there is still a week to go!…
Last week I was lucky enough to be invited to attend the IAB awards at the House of Commons. It was a great experience to join a ceremony which each year acknowledges good bookkeepers, payroll administrators and education centres and it was a reminder how important good qualified bookkeeping and payroll people are for businesses.…
For the second time this year our office has closed for a team training day. We do get together regularly for team meetings but a whole day of training has proved extremely valuable to us. Whilst we work as a team supporting each other…
