Umbrella Bookkeeping was established by Gersha, a fully qualified and highly experienced Bookkeeper. Having worked in a premier financial institution for many years, Gersha became aware of the distinct need for small and medium sized companies to have a more cost effective solution for their bookkeeping and financial obligations. Living and working in Sussex, Gerhsa is experienced and knowledgeable about local business conditions. This is hugely beneficial when a small or medium sized firm is hiring a Bookkeeper as we have the ability to provide detailed and tailored support and advice, which exceeds your average bookkeeping service. From direct experience it appeared many businesses left bookkeeping and account preparation until the year end, often due to the confusion and time consuming nature of looking after your books. This led to companies not keeping track of essential financial management information throughout the course of the year, which affected their ability to view how their business was performing and the areas which required further attention.
For small and medium sized companies this is often the first question asked, being a small business ourselves we fully appreciate the need to keep costs down. This is why we offer a range of pricing options, so you can choose which best suits your current needs and budget:
Ad-Hoc (£25.00 per hour) - For one-off jobs that you are unsure exactly how long they will take. This service is perfect for those clients that do not feel the need for the regular service of a bookkeeper. If appropriate, after having fulfilled your ad-hoc job, you may want to discuss a more regular service.
Regular (£22.50 per hour) - If you need services on a more permanent basis then we suggest using our regular pricing structure with the added benefit of a reduced hourly rate. This is our most popular service by far. However, we can also provide fixed rates (see below).
Fixed Price Rates Available - Fixed price rates are available for those clients that know precisely how long they want us to work on their bookkeeping and financial analysis needs every week, month or year. This pricing structure is available once we have discussed your exact needs and we both agree on the time spent and services to be provided.
We work with a range of accounting packages including Sage, QuickBooks, xero and Kashflow. With a strong work ethic at the core of our service, we are dedicated to driving results for you and your business. Our friendly and approachable team pride themselves on assisting and helping businesses to develop and grow - why not book an appointment today.
