Bookkeeping Questions

Littlefoot Bookkeeping Services FAQ

Here a few bookkeeping FAQ that we have been asked:

Is my business too small for a bookkeeper?

It doesn’t matter what size your business is a bookkeeper can be an asset to your business. You can release some more of your time to concentrate on your business and get your accounts completed for you. By getting your accounts complete on a regular basis you can ensure that you are making a profit and look at any problems that the business may have.

I already have an accountant do I need a bookkeeper?

If you already have an accountant that is great, but for general bookkeeping services they will charge more than the costs of a typical bookkeeper. If you want to take out the complete hassle of dealing with your accounts here at Littlefoot Bookkeeping Services we can liase with your accountant.

Can a bookkeeper save money?

It is possible that a bookkeeper can save you money. We can ensure that you are reclaiming all the expenses that you are entitled to. You can also spend more time working on your business, without the worry of completing your accounts.

My accounts are a mess can you help?

Don’t worry, as long as you have bank statements and paperwork we can set up your business accounts. We understand running your own business can be very time consuming and completing the accounts can be the last thing that you want to do.

Will Littlefoot Bookkeeping Services come to my home or office?

I can either work from home or if you prefer someone to come to you, this can also be arranged on a regular basis.

Which accounts software do you recommend?

We recommend XERO accounting software, as it is an easy to use cloud based system that can grow with your business. It also allows access to the accounts by people anywhere; this means that you can still keep track of your business.

If you run a small business we can set up a simple Excel spread sheet specifically designed for your business. I also have experience with QuickBooks and Sage.

How much do you charge?

We will always arrange a free initial consultation; this allows us to understand your business and what you require from a Bookkeeper. We will then provide a fixed fee this may be either hourly or monthly.

Is there a fixed term contract?

We prefer to work with clients on a regular basis, but only charge for the work which we complete. You can cancel our services at any time.

Do you offer any other services?

With years of experience of setting up and running my own business, I have a vast knowledge of business and can help set up a new business, payroll, self-assessment, websites, social media, advertising. If I can’t do something myself I can normally find a contact which can help. We can also assist in writing your business plan.

What areas do you cover?

As I am based in Ryton on Dunsmore, the area I work is Leamington Spa, Coventry and Rugby.
