A2Y Bookkeeping

Providing comprehensive bookkeeping services for our clients and their companies

What is Bookkeeping?

In the simplest terms, bookkeeping deals with accounting sales and purchasing documents, as well as cash flow.

However, the scope of operations of a bookkeeper may be much broader.

They can be defined as activities within the sphere of finance, including the tax sphere as well.

Bookkeepers also deal with financial risk analysis, strategy creation, legal advice, tax optimisation, translation of tax regulations, preparation of declarations, as well as representation before tax and administrative offices.

The scope of activity of the bookkeeper will depend upon the business owner and how much assistance is needed.

You may well be familiar with the practises of accountancy, and there is a lot of crossover between the two roles, however, the main distinction tends to lie in the frequency of the records kept.

Whilst accountants typically work in intervals known as 'quarters' or 'tax periods', bookkeepers can be on hand far more regularly - monthly, or even weekly - keeping a much closer, more steady eye on your financial records.

Unlike accountants, though, Bookkeepers can also assist in both issuing and chasing up unpaid invoices, processing expense claims and locating appropriate documentation - such as stray receipts or invoices.

The role of 'Bookkeeper' itself can be made relatively bespoke, picking up the financial and administrative slack wherever you company calls for it.

We Have Open Minds

How Bookkeeping Can Help

We know that many business owners see bookkeeping as a laborious, time consuming task that slows them down and limits work in other areas.

On the other hand – we are passionate about it and are dedicated to doing it better than all others.

Making sure that all your business’ books are properly managed in a professional and efficient manner.

Taking the pressure off of you and your employees to increase productivity

To allow you the opportunity to attain both your business and personal goals, as well as to prosper financially through with our consistent support

Essentially, bookkeeping takes the stress and burden away from you completely, leaving you time to do what you’re best at.

The bookkeeper will handle all your accounts, making rigorous checks, in depth analysis and record it securely.

They will also see it through a strict preparation process, enabling it to be viewed by all professional bodies, such as banks, financial companies or HMRC.

Bookkeeping experts are equipped to deal with each of your daily financial dealings – whether it’s coming in or going out, their team will handle every aspect.

It’s a comprehensive provision, always tailored to each client, making sure that they are catered for to the best of their ability.

Benefits of Bookkeeping

Some of the many plus sides of professional bookkeeping include, but are certainly not limited to:

Timely, stress-free financial records that are kept in accordance with all necessary regulations

Professional accuracy in everything from payroll periods to sole trader self assessments

Fraud-detection - never fall prey to business phishing scams

Reliable insight into financial trends, as well as profits and losses

Never, ever lose another penny over administrative error!

  Why I Founded Nordens
Accounting 2 You

In November 2002, having sold our other business interests off earlier in the year, I decided to set up Nordens Chartered Accountants. The easy part was knowing how to do it, as I had established and built a smaller practice a few years earlier. The difficult part, for me, was not following the traditional accountancy path. Having run businesses, both successfully and unsuccessfully, I wanted to help business owners resolve their short term problems and work with them to achieve their longer term goals. Business has always been my interest and I love that I can help business owners achieve what seems like the impossible every single working day.
