TecCre8 Backs Their Bookkeeper

As with every type of industry we assist at Pebbles when it comes to bookkeeping services and HR, we like to fully examine where they are currently and the various predicaments that they often find themselves in and encourage business owners learning how to do bookkeeping.

It’s safe to say that a majority of clients we have taken on, have found themselves lost, confused or looking to take away the stress of handling their books, and it’s nothing to be embarrassed over. In fact, we work to untangle the figures and make everything as clear as possible with every client we work with.

TecCre8 Ltd based in Cheshire, are a shining example of bookkeeping gone right via outsourcing your problem area.

Previous History

TecCre8 is a company that deals with bespoke furniture and commercial interiors.

It was discovered that the company had unfortunately fallen a little behind with its books due to the sad & sudden loss of a member of staff. Thankfully, this was the perfect type of client for Pebbles and we set about the rescue mission of bringing them back up to date.

Steps to Bring Everything Around

As part of our drive to bring every customer the ultimate in service, Pebbles helped to train TecCre8 in fully utilizing Xero to its full potential and introduced them to Receipt Bank, providing training in keeping their invoices and receipts in a more clear and organized structure.

Despite the November lockdown causing a delay, the team at Pebbles worked through to bring everything up to date for TecCre8, providing fully finalised records ready for the financial year-end and on track to provide a clear view of company accounts heading into 2021.

TecCre8 Verdict

As with all of our clients, we like to hear feedback on our service. Here is what TecCre8 had to say:

“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.”

If you require help with your small business bookkeeping solutions and find yourself behind or lost with your books, then Pebbles Bookkeeping is the best call to get you back where you need to be and teach you how to do bookkeeping. Contact Diane today.

Don't just take our word for it...

“Sean and the team at Pebbles provide bookkeeping services and do everything from processing invoices to payroll and then final accounts to trial balance.  They have put processes and systems in place that have helped the company track our projects and see if they are profitable and to help us generate better profitability and cash flow.  I highly recommend Pebbles Bookkeeping and often pass their details onto my contacts.”

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.

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.

I just wanted to thank you both for the help you’ve given me thus far in setting up my new cloud-based bookkeeping system ‘Clearbooks’.

Having used Microsoft Excel for more years than I care to admit, I had more than a few reservations when considering changing the way I managed my books, yet understood that I had to make the change sooner or later.

After an intense training session with Sean, (where I probably asked 101 questions), my fears quickly dissipated and I can honestly say that although it’s likely to take me a little while to really get to grips with the new interface, I’ve no doubt that this simple system will save me so much time and hassle in future.

And less time spent doing my books, almost certainly means more time with the family and an end to rushing around like a mad woman at quarter-end!

Thanks again and I’m looking forward to working with you again soon.

“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.”
