Based in Oxfordshire, we regularly work with our clients to ensure that their accounts are up to date and deadlines met so that they can make informed business decisions.
Ultimately we want to help your business grow.
Often our clients will have more than one company and we provide our support across all of them and are happy working alongside your accountant
so there is always consistency.
In 2021 we also started offering a short term service, providing cover for companies that are between staff, ensuring that their accounts are kept up to date whilst they go about recruiting a permanent team member.
Our areas of expertise are in online retail and property development/ construction.
Customised to your business needs
Our regular Bookkeeping Services ensure that your ledgers are kept up to date & MTD compatible, making it easier for the
submission of VAT Returns and Annual Accounts preparation for your Accountant.
(& WORKPLACE PENSIONS)
We provide Payroll services for small companies with up to 50 employees.
We can also manage your workplace pension scheme and advise on eligibility for any government schemes such as CBILS and Furlough.
(CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY SCHEME)
Processing your month CIS submission
We work with you to ensure that your CIS submission is processed on time and to ensure that your subcontractors are paid in a timely manner.
We also provide administration support to our Bookkeeping clients
There are many tasks that fall under administration, but we believe the most important one is setting up a good digital filing system. If you don't already have one in place then we can manage this for you.
SELF ASSESSMENT TAX RETURNS
We provide self-assessment tax return services for our sole trader clients. We also reward clients who submit their data early with a discount on our normal fee. If your self-assessment tax return is more complex then we can work alongside your accountant to ensure that you have the correct figures.
We also offer the services of a fantastic local Business Expert, who can help you improve your productivity and increase profits. She brings years of business experience to the table and a new perspective
" I am delighted to recommend Victoria to any aspirational organisation.
Her highly professional admin skills are without comparison and through her efforts have transformed the operations of Gosford All Blacks RFC. These have included ensuring appropriate financial control, accurate reporting, stock control, and complex confidential data management. We are now recognised at Local and National Level as an extremely well managed and run, growing Club".

Frequently Asked Questions
Are you an Accountant?
No we are a team of Bookkeepers, BUT if you need an accountant, we can refer you to a selection of highly qualified local ones that we are happy to work alongside.
What is the difference between a Bookkeeper and an Accountant?
Very basically put a Bookkeeper looks after the day to day transactions, whilst the accountant would analyse the data and provide you with more detailed reporting. You may choose to use our services (or that of another bookkeeper) for your day to day accounts, VAT return etc, and use your Accountant for submitting your Year End.
Do you offer Payroll and CIS?
Yes, we offer payroll services for up to 20 employees and we offer CIS verification and monthly returns.
What about Confirmation Statements?
Yes this is a service that we can include.
What softwares do you work with?
Most of our clients use Xero, but we also work with other accounting platforms such as Quickbooks, Sage etc.
Sometimes clients come to us, unsure of which accounting software they need and we will always advise based on what is best for your business not what is best for us.
What if I have more than one company?
Quite a few of our clients have more than one company and often we would work across them all providing continuity.
Do you charge by the hour?
No. We offer a fixed monthly priced based on the services that you require. We would discuss this in depth before making our proposal so that you know what's included. We then review this every three months for the first year ( and then six monthly thereafter) to ensure that we are offering you the best possible service. This review keeps our pricing fair and also enables us to increase our services as your business needs grow.
Do you take this by Direct Debit?
We have recently added this as a new feature so that you don't have to worry about remembering to pay each time.
Will I have the same Bookkeeper each time?
Generally the answer is Yes! You would normally have the same bookkeeper working on your accounts each month, unless we have to cover things such as holiday and sickness.
Do you communicate regularly with your clients?
Yes. Your assigned bookkeeper would email or whatsapp with you fairly regularly and they would be your first point of contact if you have any questions. You would also have either a face to face or Zoom call with Victoria when we review your monthly fee.
We also email a quarterly newsletter to all of our clients.
