I thought bookkeeping sounded easy…until I tried it
In order to run a business all financial transactions have to be recorded so that the business owner can establish how the business is performing and the right amount of tax can be declared.
What could be simpler.
Well, there is a lot more to bookkeeping than meets the eye and, as with so many things that look straightforward, the devil really is in the detail.
Butt Miller offers bookkeeping services to businesses of all sizes with our team of experts taking care of existing records and offering advice on how best to upgrade your bookkeeping systems to future-proof your operations.
For start-ups and small businesses your time can be better spent making money by doing what you do best. Butt Miller provides bookkeeping support using cloud-based software that you can access 24/7, 365 days a year from your phone, tablet or PC so that you can spend more time on running your business, secure in the knowledge that your key financial information is always at hand and that your paperwork is up to date.
For larger businesses the volume of bookkeeping required can become almost overwhelming and while employing a part-time bookkeeper might seem like the ideal solution, it isn’t always the most cost effective. Our bookkeeping service becomes part of your team, always on-hand to provide all the expert advice and support you will ever need for a smooth running and professional financial operation.
All of our bookkeeping services are offered for a fixed monthly fee rather than an hourly rate so that there are no nasty surprise bills at the end of the month.
Please call, email or complete the brief form on this page.
We will arrange a time to meet, at a time and location convenient to you.
We have listened carefully and here we present our thoughts and suggestions for you.
Always in touch and always relevant, our work begins on your behalf.
