Fixed Price Accounting Package for Making Tax Digital
Fixed price accounting is perfect If the thought of your bookkeeping and Making Tax Digital is getting you in a spin why not simply hand over your record keeping to us to undertake your bookkeeping on a regular basis throughout the year leaving you the time to concentrate on your business. We will make sure you are compliant with the HMRC’s new rules and that everything is filed on time.
With our fixed priced accounting package we will complete your bookkeeping using cloud-based software XERO which means that you can have access to and will be able to monitor how your business is doing in real time.
We can provide you with the means to securely send us your paperwork digitally so that you never have to visit the office and can deal with this at a time to suit you. We will, of course, show you how to do this. We can also set up digital integrations with your bank and other services such as credit card terminals, PayPal, iZettle etc so that this information feeds into your bookkeeping software automatically and you no longer have to provide this to us.
If you issue invoices we can show you how to do this using the software so that they are automatically included and give you access to an easy to use statement function which helps to speed up customer payment times and improves your cash flow.
Fixed price accounting packages depend on factors such as the size and complexity of your business, turnover, number of employees and any other services you might require e.g. payroll.

Do you want to run your own credit control with none of the bookkeeping headache?
The beauty of digital accounting is that it puts you in control of your business. If you want to use your accounting package to raise invoices and keep an eye on who owes you money but simply don’t have time for the rest of your bookkeeping we can help.
Many of our clients use the full invoicing part of the software themselves so they can raise invoices and send statements directly to their customers but leave the rest to us. We log in and reconcile the bank and process all of the expenses and submit the VAT returns where needed keeping you totally up to date. This hybrid way of working suits many who want to control their own invoicing but just can’t find the time to deal with the rest of the paperwork. With the use of the many payment functions offered in XERO, this often speeds up being paid. We can customise the invoices and statements for your business and even set up automated statement functions so that you do need to remember to log in and send them.
It’s the best of both worlds, getting paid quicker with none of the bookkeeping headache.
