Accounting Software

Bookkeeping is changing. Most of the popular software companies have introduced a cloud version of their software, and newer companies have come into the market. We are embracing these changes and all our clients are now using one of these systems. If you are on a desktop version, we can easily move you to onto cloud software.

We now also use Receipt Bank which enables us to e-mail purchase invoices to their software and then into the accounting software seamlessly. We can also show you how to use their clever app to take a photo of your receipts which we can then group together into expense claims or match against your bank statements. HMRC accepts Receipt Bank as a way of storing paperwork, and therefore once the receipt has been uploaded, it can be discarded. It saves paper, printing, postage and storage costs.

If you like the sound of this new way of working, please get in touch and we can explain how it works.


No extra work is needed to complete your VAT returns, as VAT is entered during the bookkeeping process. However, we will check everything looks correct and will remember your deadlines. We will send you a copy of your VAT Return for approval before submitting to HMRC on your behalf.


We offer a full payroll service, currently using Moneysoft Payroll Manager. We can do weekly, monthly or annual payroll and provide you with the details you need to pay your staff. We can e-mail or post payslips to you or direct to your staff, and we will submit your RTI Returns to HMRC, and remind you when to pay HMRC.

We can set up your auto-enrolment pension on your behalf, ensuring you comply with all deadlines, and can also manage it on a monthly basis.
