Professional Bookkeeping Company in Brighton and Hove

Welcome to Umbrella Bookkeeping

We are an independent bookkeeping company, working with a range of small and medium sized businesses, from a range of sectors, in Brighton and Hove. As highly trained, accredited bookkeepers, we focus on equipping you with the tools to make sure your business is on track. With monthly management accounts and financial analysis, we reduce the duties of your accountant, saving you money on your accountants annual bill. We work alongside your accountant at year end to provide them with relevant information and accounts, streamlining the year end process and enabling your accountant to concentrate on devising tax strategies and producing your tax return in a timely manner. This in turn affords your business with more time to be made aware of its tax liabilities, letting you produce all the necessary documentation in due time.

Cost Effective Solution for Small and Medium Sized Businesses  

Gersha founded Umbrella Bookkeeping after working for many years in a premier financial institution in Brighton. During this time Gersha recognised the need for business (both small and medium) to
have a more cost effective solution for their bookkeeping and financial
needs. By leaving bookkeeping and accounts preparation to your accountant at
year end, your business is not keeping track of essential management
data throughout the year. Having these details to hand, as well as a Cashflow forecast vs
Actuals and key performance indicators, you can see how your business is
performing, and most importantly, in which areas it needs attention. Living and working in Brighton, Gersha fully understands local business conditions, which enables her to impart detailed support and advice that exceeds your average bookkeeping service.

How much does a Bookkeeper cost?

We offer a versatile range of pricing options, from one-off ad-hoc tasks to more regular bookkeeping, you can choose the option that best suits your business: 

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.
