Bookkeeper – 6 Tips for a more Productive Business

A Bookkeeper for the Modern Company

Our bookkeeping service is modern and designed for businesses who want to keep all their information securely online. We provide you with software to file and reconcile your invoices easily online. We don’t charge per-user like some companies do, so you can add more users as you need. For a bookkeeper that treats you like an individual and provides modern, web-friendly software that’s easy to use, contact us today!

We are qualified chartered accountants as members of ICAEW, so you can be assured of a quality service.

Sales Invoices

Purchase Invoices

Bank Reconciliation

If you sell online, we’ll link your website directly into our accounting system so that your invoices appear automatically. If not, you can raise these yourself via our easy-to-use web-based system. Your customers can log in and settle their invoices with a simple form, or we’ll reconcile your bank transactions as your business needs.

You can either use our software to file and manage your invoices, or give them straight to us and have us manage this on your behalf. Because we file 100% electronically, you won’t have any folders or paper to store, and your documents will be stored securely on our servers in the cloud.

We’ll import your bank statements automatically and account for payments you receive and make.

What Services do we Provide?

Purchase ledger

Put simply, if Andach is your bookkeeper, we’ll do your entire purchase ledger, providing secure online software for you to authorise invoices online. You can either:

  • Upload invoice images yourself
  • Have them sent to our address, and we’ll upload them for you
  • Forward us emails with attached PDFs

We’ll classify the invoice, ensure VAT is accounted for correctly, assign it to the correct supplier and make payment according to terms agreed with you. 

We’ll only pay invoices you’ve authorised, or authorised with rules we agree in advance. For example, you might tell us to pay any phone invoices as long as they’re less than £50. 

We’ll take responsibility for checking with your suppliers whenever they advise of bank account changes. This is a very high risk area, and a common scam for small businesses. Thieves will pretend to be from common suppliers, and send a letter advising of a change to the sort code and account number. By the time you’ve realised the letter didn’t come from your supplier, you’ve already made payments to the fraudster – with no way of getting your money back. 

We’ll do a monthly statement reconciliation from all your suppliers (that issue statements) – and chase up directly with your suppliers when we identify a discrepancy. 

Sales ledger and bank reconciliations

We’ll reconcile your sales to the bank, making sure everything’s accounted for correctly, and VAT is charged appropriately. We then reconcile to your bank, and chase up your debtors for you. 

You don’t need to spend your time on the phone trying to get cash paid into your account – you need to be working on your business. Let us take control of the cash collection, and you can focus on sales. 

VAT returns

If you’re VAT registered, and take our sales and purchase ledgers, we’ll include your VAT returns as a part of our standard bookkeeper service.
