Pebbles Bookkeeping has been awarded ‘Bookkeeping Service of the Year’ at the Manchester Prestige Awards 2019!

We are excited to announce that Pebbles Bookkeeping has been awarded ‘Bookkeeping Service of the Year’ at the Manchester Prestige Awards 2019! The nomination itself came as a pleasant surprise, so you can only imagine how we felt when we won. The last five years have been a whirlwind for the business, but we are grateful to receive recognition for the efforts we have put in to provide a beneficial service to a number of businesses.

Recognition for our services

As a small family run bookkeeping and HR consultancy agency in and around Manchester, it’s our goal to ensure local businesses can run a successful business with up to date bookkeeping. Our clients can then continue to use our bookkeeping service, or we can provide software training so they can take matters into their own hands. It’s all a matter of personal choice!

We understand that bookkeeping isn’t a role that every business owner wants to add to their list of responsibilities. We take pride in the services we offer as it allows companies to focus more on the services they provide as opposed to crunching numbers. We can even take a box of receipts and turn them into a legible set of accounts, leaving our clients with peace of mind. We are also flexible with our services, enabling clients to choose how much they want from us.

Adding to our growing list of awards and accreditations

While being an ICB (Institute of certified bookkeeper) and holding a practice license, Diane is a member of the CIPD. With these accreditations, we are proud to add this award to our achievements. In addition to this, we have a silver partnership with Xero, as well as other software companies.

Looking ahead

Our next steps involve a managed growth strategy that works around the family. We aim to expand our team to allow Diane to spend more time with her children and husband Sean while ensuring the business runs smoothly.

A word from Diane

“We are over the moon with the award! It truly reflects all the hard work and dedication we put in for our loyal clients. We would like to thank all our clients for putting their trust in us and the work we do.”

A massive thank you to Diane at Pebbles Bookkeeping & HR. You took the huge stress away from where do I start, with employee policies etc. You have created us a great, informative employee handbook, covering all necessary policies and risk assessments in a matter of no time and from the other side of the world too. I will definitely be in touch for any future help our company needs.

“In bringing Pebbles onboard, it has made me wonder why we decided to try and do our own bookkeeping at all. Pebbles came in and sorted 18 months worth of mess we had unwittingly created, and we cannot be more grateful. I wish I had been told about them years ago and I hope every business out there struggling would give them a call to fully see the benefits they are missing out on.”

James Balderstone, Lucid Networks

Pebbles Bookkeeping took over our bookkeeping when a full-time member of staff left the business.  Our accounts are relatively complex for a business our size because of the number of different suppliers and products we deal with, but Pebbles were able to get quickly up to speed.  We have significantly reduced our costs spent on bookkeeping activity as a result. They have also helped us move to a new accounting system (Xero), which we are already seeing the benefit of, and we’re looking forward to working with Pebbles in the future to automate more of our back-office processes.

Steve Tanswell, Manchester Facades

I changed book-keepers around a year ago because of a disagreement.  I employed Diane of Pebbles and having been with the same firm for 10 years, I was amazed by how easy working with Diane was.  Not only did the change save me money but also saved me time.  Utilising new technologies (to me) have massively improved the amount of money I can claim back in VAT and has made the whole process speedier and well as easier.  Even when Diane is chasing me for information she does in a friendly professional manner.  I’m thrilled to be working with her and would recommend her to anyone.

“We began to relinquish our bookkeeping tasks to Pebbles Bookkeeping in September 2020, following our meeting with Diane Huxley to discuss our requirements. We signed up with Diane immediately. We have all built a quick rapport with Diane and it’s good to know that we have her support and expertise at the other end of the phone.

Pebbles Bookkeeping is a perfect fit for our company and liaises seamlessly with our accountant. It is our pleasure to work alongside them.”
