Bookkeeping for Small Businesses

For many clients we provide accounting and bookkeeping support. This may be a full service producing monthly or quarterly accounts, or a less hands on, review type role that assists our audit role and provides confidence in the accuracy of the clients’ financial information.

"Know yourself and you will win all battles"

While this is a quote from Sun Tzu's "The Art of War", it is very relevant to bookkeeping, and “The Art of Business”. Understanding your own financial situation (knowing yourself) is the first step in managing it effectively and ensuring your financial success (winning battles). This quote emphasises the importance of understanding, control, and self-awareness, all of which are key in bookkeeping and financial management.
