Umbrella Bookkeeping are an independent bookkeepers who are proud to work with businesses across Shoreham by Sea, West Sussex. We have experience working with all types of businesses in order to achieve an affordable solution for all of their bookkeeping or financial needs.
Gersha founded Umbrella Bookkeeping after working for many years in a premier financial institution in Brighton. During her time there, she recognised the need for companies (especially medium and small) to have a cost effective solution for their bookkeeping. Although many companies leave account preparation and bookkeeping to the end of the year for their accountant to deal with, this may not be the right solution as it means your business is not keeping track of essential management information throughout the year. If you have this information to hand, as well as a Cashflow forecast vs Actuals and Key performance indicators, you will be able to see how your business is performing and it will become evident which areas need attention.
We are able to provide your medium or small business with a full range of tools to ensure your business is on track financially. We will provide tax planning, vat returns, payroll services, bookkeeping, payroll services, accounting services, monthly management accounts, financial analysis and budget forecasts, which reduces the duties of your accountant - saving you money on your accountant's annual bill. At the year end, we work alongside your accountant, streamlining the end of year process by supplying them with all the relevant accounts and information. Therefore, your accountant can focus on devising tax strategies and producing your tax return. This gives your business more time to be made aware of any tax liabilities, so you can produce all the necessary documentation in due time.
By choosing Umbrella Bookkeeping, you are giving yourself the time to concentrate on more important factors of your business like building relationships with customers.
We understand the needs of keeping costs down if you are a small business. That is why we offer a versatile range of pricing options, from one-off ad-hoc work to a more regular service, there is something to suit everyone:
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.
The majority of bookkeeping firms work with specific accounting packages, this can sometimes require your business to move over to different financial software which can be an additional cost and be time consuming. At Umbrella Bookkeeping we work with a wide range of accounting, business and payroll software packages, this means we can support the package your company is already using - making your life much easier. From Sage to QuickBooks, Xero to Kashflow, we have a detailed knowledge of them all.
Our team have a strong work ethic and are focused on driving results for your business, allowing you time to concentrate on more important factors like building relationships with your customers. We are a friendly and approachable team, who pride themselves on assisting and helping businesses across Shoreham to develop and grow.
