Professional Bookkeeping Services in Crawley, West Sussex

We are an independent team of bookkeepers who work with a variety of small businesses and medium businesses based in Crawley, East Grinstead and Haywards Heath.

Our team are all experienced in the financial industry. Gersha has many years of bookkeeping experience, after working in a premier financial institution in Brighton. It was here that she recognised the need for smaller businesses to have a more cost-effective solution to their financial issues.

If you leave bookkeeping and accounts preparation to the end of the year, your business won't be keeping track of essential management information throughout the year. If you have this information kept up to date, as well as a Cashflow forecast vs Actuals and key performance indicators you will have a fuller picture of how your business is performing.

If you are a Crawley based business and choose to take advantage of our bookkeeping services, we will provide you with all of the tools you need to ensure your business is kept on track as we will provide you with monthly management and financial analysis. This will reduce the duties for your accountant and therefore will lower your annual accountant's bill.

We work with your accountant to provide them with all the information they need to concentrate on devising tax strategies and producing your tax return in a timely manner. This will leave you time to be made aware of any tax liabilities, and allow you to produce the necessary documentation in due course.

Our Bookkeeping services ensure your future is covered

You may not be keeping track of essential management information throughout the year if you leave bookkeeping and accounts preparation to the year end.

How much does a dedicated Bookkeeper cost?

Working with a variety of payroll, business and accounting software packages, we can support companies with their accounting. We are currently working with KashFlow, Sage, quickbooks and Zero. We also offer a range of pricing plans, from one-off ad-hoc work to a more regular bookkeeping service: 

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.

What services can we offer you?

We have worked with a huge array of business sectors and one of the reasons our service is so popular is due to it's versatility. We tailor our services to meet the individual requirements of the company. Here is an overview of our range of financial support:

Gersha Newnham
about the founder

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.
