Help in Getting Your Business Finances on Track for 2022

This is the beginning of the year and that point where you start to get your business finance in order – or start stressing over getting them in order.

That dreaded part of the year where you start pulling out the books to play catch up on the past year, which takes up its fair share of your work time and your family time to boot. In reality, time is what it takes – or it can be freed up by accessing help with this area.

Knowing the Limits

Knowing your business finances is part and parcel of your businesses success and growth, it is understandable how you want to be responsible towards it and not leave it up to anyone not holding the same level of passion as you do for your business. However, that passion to do it comes at the price of attention to your business and home life – as it is a lot of attention to pour into your business financials on a regular or once a year basis.

On top of compiling all of your books, invoices and receipts come the planning around it – especially for the future growth of your business. Having to do all of this work alone can be one of the most stressful areas in running a business – and one which can make or break it.

Outsourcing Value

Every business owner faces many tasks and responsibilities daily which can be a hard act to juggle, which is why many tasks eventually get put onto other people within the company when the time rolls around. Your business financials and record-keeping is no different.

As your company grows so do the areas that need your specific attention. It is not always feasible to employ somebody simply to take on a task that you have outgrown in time, with a lot of additional expense and costs associated with hiring, as well as not being enough work to justify hiring them full time.

When it comes to your company accounts and payroll outsourcing services, employing professional bookkeeping services adds a whole string of extra skills at your disposal whilst you free up the time to where you are needed the most.

Payroll

Sorting out your employees pay is a financial business task that can easily be taken up by bookkeeping services in Manchester.

From calculating starter and leaver pay, holiday pay, maternity, paternity and sick pay almost every month, an experienced bookkeeper will be able to keep on top of all the correct payment amounts so you do not come across an instance where someone is underpaid and leads to gripes with the office.

2022 is your year to get things to boost your company profile. Contact the team at Pebbles Bookkeeping today for all of your small business bookkeeping solutions and business finance services.

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

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.

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.

Sam Phillips, Sam Phillips Builders

“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.”

“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.”

Anne-Marie Armstrong, Amberry Marketing

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.
