Bermondsey Bookkeeping Case Study: Costabell Limited

Costabell Qualification


Resli is a business and life coach and is extremely busy looking after the needs of her corporate and individual clients. She did not have time to keep on top of her paperwork and year end was becoming a stressful time as her accountants needed all her records to prepare her Company and Self-Assessment accounts and returns.

Bookkeeping was far from being one of Resli’s favourite pastimes, so she unfortunately let things to get out of hand and the paperwork was piling up.

With her accountant pressing her for her paperwork and the potential late filing penalties, Resli needed to take urgent actioned.

Resli did a search online and found Cain & Co and got in touch immediately, the rest is history as they say.



Paul met Resli to go through her situation and after a free consultation he and the team immediately got stuck into the work. Paul’s aim was not only to get the bookkeeping in order but to alleviate Resli’s woes and stress and restore some calm to the proceedings.

To Resli’s delight her bookkeeping was brought into order very quickly which enabled her accountants to prepare the accounts, get them signed off and then filed on time – No Penalties or Late Filing Fines and definitely no more stress!!

Each month Resli receives a 1-2-1 review of her figures explained with the accounting jargon so she understands how her business is performing without having to wait until the end of the year.

Costabell Limited are now set up with Xero and Hubdoc and their bookkeeping system and processes are fully automated. Invoices are scanned into Hubdoc and Account Manager Gemma gets to work to ensure the bookkeeping is completed efficiently and VAT returns are filed when due.

In Our Client’s Words:

Paul took my unholy financial mess and swiftly transformed it into a few neat and comprehensible spreadsheets initially. He said his goal is for him to find savings that are at least as great as the cost of his services – a highly worthy goal, in my mind! Paul truly enjoys his work, and it shows.

He would show up eager to dive into the heap of paper that I had accumulated, and he took obvious pleasure in whittling it down.

Also, important: if you are going to have a bookkeeper on-site, you had better be able feel comfortable with them. Paul’s very easy to be with. He is a diligent worker, so you will not get extended conversation as the meter ticks away (that is good!). But he is pleasant, easy going, and a pleasure to hang out with as he tidies away whatever godawful mess you may have.
