I’m Jakki Francis, I’ve been a qualified accountant for over 30 years and in that time, in which I’ve prepared thousands of sets of accounts, I’ve rarely seen bookkeeping done well.

I’m not just saying that…. it happens to be the truth as I’ve experienced it.
A lot of the clients that come to me have had the same experience too and are looking for someone better who they can build a relationship with and trust to do their accounts in the right way and give them information that is meaningful to them in developing their business.

I like bookkeeping. I prefer it to preparing accounts and because I know how to prepare accounts, I understand how your books need to be prepared for your accountant – this cuts errors, makes auditing easy and should cut your accountant’s bill considerably. In my experience few bookkeepers understand what they are trying to achieve beyond recording your financial transactions. This gives me a unique perspective amongst bookkeepers because I understand what your accountant needs. I make your books make sense.

Now that we’re into the era of Making Tax Digital (MTD) – if you have a VAT registered business,with effect from your first VAT quarter starting on or after 1st April 2019, your VAT return needs to be submitted using specialist software.  My clients and I use Sage cloud software, so if you need any help with this just get in touch.

I’m sure I can help you and your business so please get in touch in the first instance via the contact page and we’ll see if we’re a fit for each other.
