What do you mean, fully-managed?  

Over the past decade, a tonne of apps have popped up, promising to make financial life a breeze for small business owners. You know the ones – snap your receipts, tap a button, and voila! Your VAT return is done, and your accounts are filed. But let's be real, it's never quite that easy, is it? That's why accountants exist and spend, on average, over half a decade training to qualify! 
So, not only do we handle your end-of-year accounts, but we also provide fully-managed bookkeeping services throughout the year. This way, we get to know your business inside and out, transaction by transaction, and can support you proactively. 
This is what we mean by "fully managed" and "done-for-you" – we're literally taking care of everything, so you don't have to lift a finger beyond the basic necessities like uploading receipts into an app, connecting your bank feeds to Xero, and filling out the odd form or checklist… 
…all of which takes just a few moments, and we’ll show you how. 

So, why choose our fully-managed bookkeeping services over the DIY route?  

Let's break it down: 
Is your time as a business owner, contractor, or landlord best spent learning software and working through business transactions? Or would you rather focus on your day job or enjoy some downtime with your family? 
Do you love learning new, complex systems, and dealing with financial admin? If so, maybe you're in the wrong job, and you should come and work for us instead?! 
Sure, you can trust the software to an extent, but do you genuinely know what you're doing? Are you a pro at VAT and tax treatments? Spoiler alert: it's more complicated than software companies want you to believe (after all, their job is to make it sound easy!). 
Do you understand the risks and potential penalties of getting it wrong? As a small business owner working hard to support your lifestyle - and possibly a young or growing family - are you willing to take that gamble? 
So, if you're a small, family-owned, service-based business in the UK looking to collaborate with a real-life human accountant (gasp!) and want a fully-managed accounting solution from a team that strives relentlessly to be the best, give us a shout today!
