I am a virtual/remote independent bookkeeper
These are some of the bookkeeping services I can assist you with.
I offer bespoke bookkeeping services as every business is different, with Making Tax Digital (MTD) coming in for Income Tax Self Assessment (ITSA) in April 2024. Now is an excellent time to prepare for it if you have not already put the systems in place. It will also benefit your business with up-to-date accounts and figures. Therefore you can see how the profit is coming along and any tweaks needed.
I use FreeAgent and QuickBooks cloud accounting for my bookkeeping services. If not already set up, I can help you set that up. With regular checks and anything outstanding sorted to keep it up to date. After all, how can those critical business decisions be made if the bookkeeping is not up to date? Find out the answer to that all-important question, How much profit did or will the business make this year?
I will perform regular checks that you are on the correct bookkeeping service package, as no one wants to pay more than they need to, but if it is more than the original package in both instances, I will contact you to discuss.
Sample of bookkeeping services offered.
Regularly review bank feeds and maintain ledgers by recording actual transactions to trial balance.
Invoices can be sent out by me and recorded. When payment is received, it will be matched and recorded. I will keep you updated on what is outstanding.
Scanned receipts will be matched and recorded—supplier invoices matched with payments. What is outstanding, I will inform you.
*By informing you of what is outstanding, you are aware of what is owed to you or what you owe to others, helping to keep a clear picture of your business.
Not everyone wants to chase outstanding debts, as it can make them feel uncomfortable, and it is something I can do on your behalf. Sometimes, this can help payments come in on time, but I cannot guarantee it.
When payments are not made on time or within a reasonable time frame, it can significantly impact your cash flow. Your cash flow is just as important as the person/company that owes you.
There will be an update monthly, and I hope this will help relieve some of the worries, knowing your books are in caring hands.
I fully understand what it is like to be a sole trader and run a small business. I also have experience with freelancers, and time can be minimal that getting invoices out and checking that payments have been made can be difficult with the long hours out working. Having a bookkeeper sort this on your behalf can relieve stress and help cash flow.
