Umbrella Bookkeeping is a small team of independent bookkeepers who work with a range of businesses across Lewes and the surrounding areas. As a company we recognised the need for small to medium sized businesses to
have a more cost effective solution for their financial needs. Our team will work with your company to provide all the tools you need to ensure your business is on track.
We work with a number of payroll, business and accounting software packages including KashFlow, Sage, quickbooks and Zero. Using our strong work ethic and a desire to drive results for your business, we will enable you to concentrate on more important areas like developing relationships with your customers.
Our service is flexible to meet the individual needs of your business. You can choose from one-off ad-hoc work to a more regular bookkeeping service:
If you leave bookkeeping and accounts preparation to your accountant at year end (like many businesses do) your company will not be keeping track of essential management information throughout the year. If you had this information to hand as well as Cashflow forecasts vs Actuals and Key performance indicators, you would be able to clearly see how your business is performing. Not only this, it would also highlight the areas which most require attention.
Hiring a bookkeeper reduces the duties of your accountant and in turn saves you money. We will work alongside your accountant at year end and provide information and accounts, which will streamline your year end process. This enables your accountant to concentrate on devising tax strategies and producing your tax return in a timely manner. It also saves you time so that you can become more aware of your businesses tax liabilities - producing all the necessary information when required.
After working for many years in a financial institution in Brighton I decided to grasp the opportunity to set up Umbrella Bookkeeping services, I recognised the need for small to medium sized businesses to have a more cost effective solution for their bookkeeping and financial needs. If you are a small business who needs help keeping on top of your finances, I can work on a basis to suit your needs and budget.
