How can Cain & Beer
Bookkeeping and account management
By accurately recording your business’s ledger, up-to-date and efficient bookkeeping can transform the day-to-day running of your company. We can work remotely or can undertake your bookkeeping on site – this is another benefit of being local.
One of the most complex parts of financial management, missing or incorrectly filed VAT returns can result in penalties. A pressure point for many companies, let Cain & Beer take the stress out of formalising and submitting your VAT return.
Invoicing, reconciliation and credit control
For businesses cashflow management is key, invoicing promptly and being paid on time is invaluable as is ensuring that your company’s financial data is accurate – enabling you to make business decisions based on facts, not belief.
Payroll and auto enrolment
If your business has employees, one or many, Cain & Beer can manage your payroll including issuing pay slips and employers National Insurance submissions to HMRC. Within our service we can arrange the set up of pension schemes for your staff.
Supporting your business
In addition to taking on your company’s financial management or bookkeeping services, Cain & Beer also offers a range of services to help you take care of your own accounts. Our bookkeeping workshops are intimate and (we like to think) fun! You will leave the workshop with a clearer understanding of the records you are legally required to keep, where you can claim business expenses and how to maintain straightforward bookkeeping spreadsheets. You will also be given a range of templates to get started with.
Cain & Beer can also set you up online accounting software such as Xero or Quickbooks and offer you tutorials in how to use these to benefit your business.
Still not sure whether Cain & Beer is the right bookkeeper for you?

CASE STUDY: LIFESTYLE CREATING YOUR PERFECT HOME LIMITED, EPSON, SURREY
Lifestyle is a busy Construction company based in Epsom that also provide bespoke Kitchens and Bathrooms to their vast customer base.
Their bookkeeper had just left the business and they needed immediate support with their bookkeeping and month end reports. Clare, one of the Directors wanted to have more of an understanding of the figures and needed training initially with Sage.
As luck would have it, Paul was already known by their accountants and he suggested that Clare got in touch with him to see if he could help with Sage training.
Paul met with the Directors at their premises in Epsom and was instructed to carry out training and bookkeeping & Sage support.
Clare on her own admission did not have much knowledge about accounts and bookkeeping but was keen to learn as she knew it would be very beneficial.
Paul started a module-based training course for Clare covering suppliers, sales, nominal ledger, and banking. Each session was completed at Clare’s pace to ensure that she completely understood the module before moving on to the next module.
Once Clare had completed the Sage training course, she asked Paul if he could offer both bookkeeping and Sage support and come in once a month to check the accounts and help with management reports.
Cain & Beer continue to offer bookkeeping and management accounts assistance and have recently helped Clare with Xero and Hubdoc training.
In Our Client’s Words:
Cain and Beer have introduced us to the world of Sage and then more latterly Xero and helped us understand each module and how to get the most out of the software.
We now do all our own accounts, VAT, bookkeeping, payroll, CIS, and submissions “in house”. We would highly recommend using them.
A huge thank you to Paul for all his hard work and continued support!
