We are an independent bookkeeping company based in Brighton and work with businesses across West and East Sussex. From a vast array of sectors, we work with small and medium sized businesses, helping achieve a more affordable solution for their bookeeping and financial needs.
The founder of Umbrella Bookkeeping worked for many years in a Brighton based premier financial institution and quickly recognised the need for small to medium sized businesses to have a more cost effective solution for their bookkeeping and financial requirments. Many companies leave bookkeeping and accounts preparation to their accountant at the year end but this means your business is not keeping track of essential management information throughout the year. By having this information to hand, as well as a cash flow forecast vs Actuals and Key performance indicators, you can see how your business is performing and most importantly in which areas it needs attention - saving you time and money.
With monthly management accounts, financial analysis and budget forecasts, the duties of your accountant are vastly reduced - saving you money on your accountant’s annual bill. We work alongside your accountant at year end, providing them with the 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.
We fully understand the needs of keeping costs down for a small businesses. 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 every small 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.
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 small businesses develop and grow.
