Sick of spending hours doing your bookkeeping manually? Fret no more.

Bookkeeping might not be the most entertaining, but it holds the keys for exciting business advisory stuff like cashflow forecasting, management accounts, and real-time business decisions.

How we help

Xero and Dext automate daily bookkeeping, making it easy to understand your business’s numbers.

Simply take a picture of receipts with Dext, which syncs and reconciles them with Xero as soon as the next day.

Digital recording allows for up-to-date figures and access to financial information anytime, anywhere.

Our accountant for small businesses doing Value added tax return

Let's face it, a lot of business owners are quite happy to only see their accountant once year.

For some, the thought of a quarterly catch-up seems like unnecessary work. However, there’s method in our madness. We like to become an extension of our clients’ business, holding them accountable, offering advice and helping them achieve their dreams. We can only do that if we speak to our clients regularly, checking in every quarter to really see what’s going on. The beauty of using Xero and having live data means you can respond to things as they happen. Without quarterly catch-ups, you’re often reacting after the horse has bolted. Quarterly catch-ups let us do more than your traditional accountant, they let us be a genuine lifeline to your business and not just a necessary evil. It’s something we’re super passionate about, and rest assured, there is another way!

In days gone by, accountants have requested boxes full of receipts of their clients, saved up for months at a time.

Daily Bookkeeping means your figures are up to date as soon as the next day so you can make more informed decisions and plan better.

With Daily Bookkeeping, you simply take a picture of a receipt using the Dext app, send it to us, and we reconcile them everyday so your figures are up to date on Xero.

So that client lunch you went to yesterday? Once you send the receipt over you’ll be able to see if reflected in your Xero as soon as the next day.

Real-time data = real-time business decisions.


What do we mean when we talk about Dinosaur Accountants?

How to spot a dinosaur:

  • Gets you to send months of receipts in one go
  • Only speaks to you near the financial year-end
  • Doesn’t offer any proactive tax planning
  • Makes no attempt to understand your business or industry
  • Heavily relies on outdated technology that isn’t fit for purpose (i.e Excel Spreadsheets…)
  • Speaks in accounting jargon.

The time for accounting dinosaurs is over, find out how we do things differently and get in touch today!
