    Our Testimonials

    The Business Bookkeeper is an absolute asset to our company. A positive ‘can do’ approach to managing our invoicing, accounts, clients and tutors with intelligence, empathy and professionalism. The calm one in a storm and first to mention a new app or system that might help speed up our processes and keep us competitive. Without The Business Bookkeeper, we would quite frankly be lost.

    Caroline Butler, Director, Dulwich Tutors

    The Business Bookkeeper has been our bookkeeper for over 5 years. They have been instrumental in the effective management of the financial affairs of our small business – a gentle nudge here and a reminder there, guiding us through the increasingly complex administrative tasks businesses are required to handle. The Business Bookkeeper do their job brilliantly, so allowing us to get on and do ours. They are to be hugely recommended.

    Stephen Paine and Sophie Stewart (Directors), Paine and Stewart Ltd

    We have been working with The Business Bookkeeper for over 6 years now. From a personal point of view, we have never met, but over every email and phone call, they are extremely pleasant. From the Business side, they have been tremendously professional. They manage all of our bookkeeping, VAT returns, CIS Statements and are able to provide all types of financial reports. Everything is setup Via Xero, so the information and work completed is all there to see. They are very proactive and systematically chase any information that’s needed and keeps to all deadlines set out by HMRC. They are set up with our company email and receive statements and invoices directly as well to smoothen the paperwork. If there are any changes in regulations or laws – More recently Pensions they has brought it to our attention and acted on our behalf to organise these. There hasn’t been a single mistake or issue dealing with The Business Bookkeeper, and so I cannot recommend them highly enough as they are a huge asset.
