Is Summer the Best Time to Start Outsourced Bookkeeping?

For small businesses, especially ones working from home who have been set up out of necessity over the last year, summer is the season for business bookkeeping.

Whilst you may not initially think of it as such, it is the one season that allows you to get ahead and fully diagnose the health of your business. Unfortunately, something else is going to factor into your time – your family.

The children are off school for six weeks, which not only affects your catching up on bookkeeping plans but also your business operation hours as a whole. Those kids need stimulation, and the juggle becomes a major headache where something has to give.

Therefore, it may be the time of year where outsourced bookkeeping services in Manchester become just the thing needed.

Summer Holidays Are Not Free

When you are the boss of a business, the time comes with a hefty price tag. Whilst we can account for a holiday with the family, taking the entire summer with them certainly poses a challenge keeping on top of your business finances.

If you can take advantage of the summer’s opportunities to get ahead, the rest of the year becomes easier in getting an accurate prognosis of your business financial standing and setting course for tax savings.

But one will come down to being sacrificed – family time or business bookkeeping time.

Seasonal Help

The bigger benefit of being able to spend time with the family and have your books perfectly balanced is to outsource the work to professional bookkeeping services.

By employing a business specialising in small business bookkeeping solutions, you will have access to more time having fun with your family whilst the most stressful aspects of running a business are being handled by an expert at them.

Depending on the type of business you run, summertime can either be your busiest or slowest season. It is also a season with the most temporary hires as well as staff holiday hours, which takes a lot of accounting for and processing through payroll. Bookkeeping services provide payroll outsourcing services as well as help with the onboarding of new hires so that everything can be perfectly implemented behind the scenes.

If business slows during the summer months, then the perfect opportunity to compare your financials of e current year against the previous provides a scope for the upcoming busy period and identify where the weaknesses are.

Secure Summer

Whilst you spend the time with loved ones, your business finances can be taking the right steps to be welcoming when you check-in. This is the perfect season for matching your business with bookkeeping services in Manchester.

“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.”

Robert Flinn, Director, The Drawing Room

“Pebbles have provided professional and personal approach to all our accounts needs from processing invoices to management accounts. Based in-house they have become a valuable asset to the business and have given us a more strategic and analytical approach to our finances.”


Mark Gray, Taylor Made Finance Ltd

“Pebbles Bookkeeping have been doing our bookkeeping for the past 2 years. Our Accountant recommended them to us and they are very professional, approachable and knowledgeble in the work they do. We send them our paperwork electronically and manually and they process it all efficiently in a timely manner.

I would not hesitate to recommend Sean and the team at Pebbles Bookkeeping – they do a fantastic job.”
Nick Aldrich, Only The Brave

Only The Brave have used Pebbles Bookkeeping for a few years now and we treat them instinctively like an integral department of our business.

I have worked with Sean for over two decades in my previous businesses and when Sean and Diane went on their own it was a no brainer to get them involved with our day to day accounting.

Pebbles manage our bookkeeping, expenses, credit control and PAYE and have a keen eye for detail and help us spot important financial matters before they become issues.

Their integrity and honesty are unquestionable and as a result, Pebbles are an asset to our business and will continue to work with us for many years to come.

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.
