Welcome to the accounting and bookkeeping blog, where you will find advice and tips for running your business accounts.

Bookkeeping basics

Running your own business can be very stressful and ensuring that your accounts are completed correctly can be expensive and time-consuming.

I have over 20 years experience in the accounting profession working as both self-employed and as an employee reporting to the financial controller of a large organisation. I also run my own bookkeeping business, helping other businesses set up and run their accounts.

I am a member of the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) and completed the course whilst working full time, managing to gain both experience and a qualification at the same time.

The aim of this site is to help other business owners and students learn through simple tips and advice. Where possible I include examples and links to free templates.
