Are you considering doing your annual accounts yourself?
Does the phrase MTD (Make Tax Digital) scare you?
If you are fed up with paying big bills to an accountant and keen to complete your annual returns yourself then I can help.
The modern breed of online accounts software (Sageone, Quickbooks and Xero) may be the answer. With a modest monthly subscription (usually less than £20) the programmes download your receipts and payments directly from your bank accounts etc. and provided things are set up correctly – that’s where I come in – your transactions will end up in the correct place in your accounts and then forwarding your VAT returns etc. to HMRC becomes a doddle.
After that, all you may need from me is a few hours each year to check that everything’s running smoothly and the job’s done!
Need help or training with your Sage 50 or Quickbooks?
Locked out of Sage? Need to train a new staff member on your accounts? In a muddle with your bank reconciliation? Need a particular report that doesn’t seem to exist – or simply want to know if you’re getting the best out of the software?
I thrive on challenges, so if you need one-off help with Sage, don’t hesitate to ask. I’m happy to help.
Can’t find the time to do your VAT or Year end?
This is one of the commonest jobs I do. A visit of two or three hours a quarter (or even year) to tidy things up and run the period end reports and you never need have sleepless nights over those deadlines again. Once you are competent on Sage, then this can be a very cost-effective and hassle-free solution.
Who am I?
I am David Blight who has worked as a Sage trainer and user since 1987 when the first Sage programmes were being developed. I also ran a small manufacturing business for 30 years as well as working as an accounts adviser for one of the Government agencies. I have run Sage courses for numerous Devon County adult education programmes. I am also a Quickbooks certified adviser.
How much will it cost?
My hourly rate is £27.00 per hour (No VAT). I don’t charge call-out fees or mileage, I simply charge for my travelling time if my journey from either my Exeter or Ilminster offices to you is over 30 miles.
Where am I?
I’m happy to offer training at my office if you prefer to do this away from your workplace.
