A New Year is about looking forward and planning what you are going to achieve in the next six months, the next year or perhaps the next five years.  But a New Year is also about looking back to what you have achieved in the previous year or years.  If you don't look back sometimes you can't see how far you have come. Twelve years ago,…
As a business we are not very good at sharing the feedback we get from our clients.  In fact we don't share it at all unless you happen to be looking at our website because you need a bookkeeper or someone to take on your payroll. We have received some fantastic feedback from our clients this year, which we really appreciate so to finish our year off I thought I would share a couple of the testimonials we have received.…
Christmas has arrived in our office!  The Christmas tree is up, the first tin of chocolates is being devoured and we have made our annual collection for a local charity.…
The last couple of years have got busier and busier for us.  Lots of new enquiries, lots of new clients and lots of one-off Xero training but with MTD looming I decided at the beginning of this year we would not take on any new clients for a few months.  As lovely as it is…
The newest recruit to our bookkeeping team joined us at the beginning of May. Ryan is a trainee currently about to complete his Level 3 exams.  I know Ryan is really enjoying the variety of work we do and being able to learn from our experienced bookkeepers but I thought it would be interesting if he wrote about why he chose to do accounts and how he has found the first few weeks.  This might help others considering a similar change because it is always daunting, as well as exciting, to take a massive step in a different direction. Here is the beginning of Ryan's bookkeeping journey.…
Last week we finally had our Christmas get together.  With December being short on working days and a hectic schedule for everyone both at work and at home during December we decided to do something in January instead.…
Being a bookkeeper and a business owner means my day rarely runs to plan.  A full day of bookkeeping only happens when I visit clients because there are no telephone calls, emails, visitors, staff or other priorities requiring my attention. When I am in the office for the day I often leave feeling I haven't achieved anything that I wanted to.  Today was one of those days so I thought for my blog this week I would look back at today and see what I really did achieve.So, this was today in the life of a bookkeeper and business owner .................…
I have just reached a milestone of 15 years in business.  It has been challenging, rewarding and enlightening.  I have had to learn to do things it never occurred to me I would have to do when I started out.  I have had opportunities and experiences that I would never would have had. …
Last week was a time of celebration.  A wedding has been the discussion of our office for the last few months and Saturday was the day.…
Last week I spent the day in London at the annual accountancy exhibition, Accountex, held at the ExCel. I first went to the exhibition two years ago and was amazed by the number of stands and variety of speakers.  Having skipped a year to attend the Sage conference, Sarah and I decided we would go to Accountex again to find out more about developments in the accounting industry.  We planned in advance what we wanted to get out of the day and went to different talks and visited different software stands so we could get the most out of it.…
