We don’t do Quickbooks or Sage (or frankly anything other than Xero!)

We’re really thrilled that you’re interested in working with us. We always want to make sure that we’re the right match for you, and you’re the right match for us. To help us all make that decision fast, here’s a couple of things we don’t do:

  • We don’t work with QuickBooks or Sage or anything other than Xero!

Your choice of accounting software, is of course… your choice!

We love Xero. I don’t know if you noticed, but we’re pretty big fans.

We advise our clients to use Xero because we believe it is the best accounting software for business growth. We love the ecosystem of apps it integrates with. We love how easy it is for our clients to use, and how seamlessly we can partner with them to turn their business goals into a reality. This video from our client Darren at 3D Oak says it all.

We’re not afraid to say that we don’t work with companies who aren’t willing to work with Xero.

If you are interested in switching over to Xero, we can help with this and you can read more about it here: Our Xero Conversion Services.

That being said – we totally get it if you’ve nailed your colours to the QuickBooks/Sage mast. It takes time to learn the ins and outs of a software and to bring all your company processes along. Ultimately, if you’ve invested in another software and you’re feeling the benefits in your business – we respect that, and we hope for good things for you.

Our best recommendation for you

We’re often asked if we’ll work with QuickBooks or Sage. The answer is no – but we do want to make sure that where we can’t help, we’re passing you on to the very best firm who can.

We highly recommend the following firms, and the fabulous ladies who run them:

Emco Bookkeeping & training

Name: Sarah Hayes

Email: sarah@emco-bks.co.uk

Website: www.emco-bks.co.uk

Why we recommend: We’ve loved working with Sarah, who has very much the same ethos as us when it comes to making the most of the technology available to you. She’s a breath of fresh air for new business owners and we’ll often point QuickBooks users in her direction, as our two firms work in a similar way. Sarah will take care of your tax returns and is also a certified ProAdvisor for QuickBooks.

ZSC Accountancy

Name: Zoe Collins

Email: zoe@zsc-accountancy.co.uk

Website: www.zsc-accountancy.co.uk

Why we recommend: We’ve worked alongside Zoe for a few years, and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to QuickBooks users. Zoe has brilliant monthly plans, with different options based on the level of support you need. She’s great at breaking down the financial jargon so you’re never in the dark about what your numbers mean. Plus she loves Receipt Bank and 1Tap too.

KFH Accounting Ltd

Name: Kylie Fieldhouse

Email: kylie@kfhaccounting.co.uk

Website: www.kfhaccounting.co.uk

Why we recommend: Kylie and her team are another local Essex based firm we recommend for QuickBooks users. KFH also do some really great work in the area of wills, probate and inheritance tax – and they’re a lovely bunch!

Bookkeeping Essex

Name: Liane Clark

Email: enquiries@bookkeepingessex.co.uk

Website: www.bookkeepingessex.co.uk

Why we recommend: Bookkeeping Essex have yearly and monthly packages for tax returns and have a one-off cost for company formation. We would highly recommend Liane if you’re looking for help with your tax return and year end accounts. Liane is also a Sage specialist, so if you’re a Sage user looking for support – she’s your go to!

We hope it’s a match!

Whichever firm you choose to work with, we hope you’ve truly found your people. We wouldn’t recommend the ladies above if we didn’t 100% believe that they have the knowledge, experience and integrity to give you the support you need. So now it’s all about deciding if they’re the people for you.

We wish you the best of luck.
