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.…

Our recent seminar, New Year, New Business - A Guide for Startups, was very successful despite the unplanned power cut across our area that morning!  The presentation without electricity became a very relaxed informal discussion around the table.  Candles would have been good but the emergency light and a small window gave everyone just about enough light to make notes!  …
We are already one week into 2018 but what did 2017 bring us that we can celebrate and learn from?…
Back in the summer we began discussing what we might do for our team building event this year.  For the past two years we have been to the Escape Rooms in Salisbury after our annual training and development day which has been really good fun.  But this year we wondered what we could do that was different.…
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.…
