Can't face doing your bookkeeping? Let me do it for you!

Bookkeeping is the most fundamental part of the accounting process, so it’s really important to get this right. with over 10 years’ experience Jane Barnes Bookkeeping can keep your books in perfect order. I can carry out as much or as little of the bookkeeping process as you require.

Most business owners struggle with bookkeeping because it’s not what comes naturally to you. If you aren’t properly qualified, how are you expected to know your debits from your credits or your bank feeds from your reconciliations.

It is really important to me that we have a good working relationship, I love to hear all about your business, how it all began and where you are going. So I always like to keep in touch throughout our working relationship.

I complete accounts to trial balance ready for your accountant if you are a limited company .

Or if you need a self assessment tax return completing, I can make this submission for you.

Depending on the number of transactions your business has per month, I will suggest either weekly or monthly bookkeeping. I work remotely using cloud based accounting software.
