Read on to see what one of our local clients has to say:
CASE STUDY: SIGNS EXPRESS, WALLINGTON, SURREY
Signs Express are a franchise with outlets throughout the country and Richard Worsley had run the Wallington branch for several years had just changed his accountants. Richard used to do the bookkeeping with a desktop version of Sage which his accountant would use to prepare the accounts.
Richard’s new accountant suggested that he enlisted the help of a bookkeeper so that he could just focus on growing his busines. Fortunately, his accountant Jeremy Lambourne of Abacus 30 Limited knew Paul Cain and had been using his services for several years.
He recommended Paul and Cain & Beer to Richard and arranged an initial consultation to discuss what was needed. Richard wanted an onsite fortnightly visit and a set day and time was agreed by both parties.
Cain & Beer were able to schedule into their diary a fortnightly visit to Wallington to help Signs Express with their bookkeeping.
For the first month or so, Paul came in to complete the bookkeeping work to ascertain what was needed. Paul was able to streamline and improve the internal processes and, in many cases, simplify some of the previous activities.
Richard was already well versed in the world of accounts as he had previously taken a business financial management course so when Paul introduced monthly management reports it was music to his eyes!! After a month or so Paul introduced Samantha to Richard to carry out the bookkeeping going forward which worked extremely well.
In Our Client’s Words:
I always thought bookkeepers would work like this, but they do not always, and the fact that Paul works closely with other accountants, like he does with us, shows that this coordinated service has strong appeal. What gives value to us is knowing that all is up to date; it’s easy to think you can do bits of it yourself, but you end up just doing the easy bits and the harder ones become a build-up of trouble, if you aren’t careful.
I have used Cain & Beer Ltd for many years and they always do a good job and I have learned a lot from Paul. There are lots of things you need to know when running a business and it is not worth trying to do everything yourself as my accountant pointed out. Trust the experts to complete the tasks you as a business owner should not be doing and add value in your own way to your business.
Bookkeeping is an important part of every business and outsourcing to experts like Cain & Beer is a valuable lesson to learn.
