References and Qualifications

Qualifications, References and Affiliations are the measure of a skilled bookkeeper. They allow a client to adequately judge whether the bookkeeper is able to perform the tasks that they require professionally and competently.

Bookkeeping tasks require advanced levels of accuracy and organisation which not everyone is able to undertake. Good qualifications can narrow down your search for the best bookkeeper that is available. Also experience of accountancy practices is essential so that your bookkeeper can communicate with your accountant adequately.

Experience

Although it may sound boring, I find that there is nothing more satisfying than sifting my way through a whole stack of paperwork and finishing up with a balanced end result. At the other end of the scale, there is nothing quite so annoying as being just a few pence out at the end of a quarters accounting, then having to demonstrate prudence; the art of knowing when to leave well alone because the cost of finding those few missing pence will cost more in time spent! Not a situation I find myself in often, and a strange subject to get worked up about, but there you have it. That's me.

I received my early experience with a small architectural and interior design practice over fifteen years ago, which included monthly book-keeping, PAYE, quarterly VAT Returns, and Employers Annual Returns.

Realising that bookkeeping for small business is a totally different creature to working on bringing accountancy submissions up to trial balance, I took a position with a local accountancy firm which allowed me to cram experience of many types of business accounts in a short time.

With a good grounding in practice accounting I branched out on my own in 2009. My Professional qualification and membership is with the IAB (the Professional Body which regulates Book-keepers), with whom I also studied for a Diploma in Computerised Book-keeping. I believe that my flexibility, experience and professional nature will make my service very useful to small accountancy practices who hit workload bottlenecks occasionally and need part time cover to bring themselves up to date.

Being a book-keeper takes a certain type of person; I would probably describe myself as methodical, well-organised, accurate, disciplined, and precise, the very predictable personality traits you would expect from someone living their work life according to spreadsheet layouts!

More personable qualities would be my honesty, approachability, and enthusiasm. If you consider that I'm the sort of person you would like to have dealing with your accounts (self-employed, sole trader, small and medium sized business), please feel free to e-mail, or phone for an informal chat.

Needless to say, all conversations, correspondence and business will be treated as both private and confidential. I am able to work in-house at your own premises, or from home. If working from home, dependent upon your location I can either collect and return your documents personally, or arrange for collection and return by Courier.

I should like to point out, there is a considerable difference between the services provided by a Book-keeper and those of an Accountant. Accounting is a way of showing the financial position of your company at any given time so that you can find your gross and net profits, know your debtors and creditors, borrow money, and comply with legislation, i.e. tax and PAYE. Book-keeping, on the other hand, is necessary for keeping track of all financial transactions which would invariably be forgotten at a later date. It consists of the recording of all transactions into various ledgers to demonstrate a balance (usually carried out to Trial Balance stage). A Book-keeper will basically reconcile all your paperwork so that you can pass the balanced figures to an Accountant for tax advice, year end completion, and submission of your Annual Return to the Tax Office; but save them the [expensive] time spent in sorting and organising your sales invoices and purchase receipts.
