December 5, 2008Bookkeeping and accountancy services
Picking software is like picking a car: Some like Ford, some like Vauxhall, some want a Mercedes. They all do roughly the same job but it’s the ‘feel’ that makes the difference. Sage is popular but is not for beginners, in my opinion. Quickbooks is a very good product and worth a try. Xero also provide a very simple package.
Most have a free trial version. Give them a test drive. However, if you don’t understand bookkeeping, please don’t presume that software will make it simple. You still need to know the basics and it is possible to make big mistakes with only a little knowledge. Also make sure that whatever package you purchase is compatible with the package that your accountant or bookkeeper uses. If you talk to your bookkeeper, he or she might be able to licence you as a ‘user’ on his or her software. This can be very cost effective. And if you use a cloud (internet-based) system you can each have a live version of your accounts, which means that if you need information on a day when the bookkeeper is not in your office, it can all be talked through over the phone.
We can relieve you and your business of a significant burden by taking care of all your bookkeeping and accounting needs. This ranges from making use of our in-house bookkeeping bureau to the preparation of your annual accounts. We will treat every business individually so that we can tailor our approach to your requirements.
Besides the core bookkeeping, we can also maintain your VAT records, prepare your payroll and take on ad hoc projects to free up valuable time for your staff.
We believe that our high level of IT literacy can help improve our efficiency and help our clients to set-up their accounting systems to be efficient and effective.

I cannot recommend Don Owens enough as an accountant and while I know it is a headache to change accountants - I urge you to seriously consider using Don.
He is magic and will save you much time and tax money once you hire him - he is also very reasonably priced.
