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?
Read on to see what one of our local clients has to say:
CASE STUDY: ACE ACCOUNTANTS IN MORDEN, SURREY
AJ Dosani of Ace Accountants based in Morden, Surrey had a client coming to the end of a VAT return and needed assistance soon with Xero otherwise they would have to pay a late filing penalty. The client had received very minimal training and support previously so needed to be brought up to speed but they also needed help getting the VAT return filed on time.
There were unfortunately, quite a few duplications within Xero that needed attention and there were also some very common mistakes that had been made due to a lack of understanding and training of Xero. These mistakes are extremely common and totally understandable based on previous training received.
Ace Accountants got in touch with Cain & Beer based on an ongoing business relationship to see if we could help their client.
Firstly, we immediately set about checking the accounts and removing the duplications to ensure that the VAT return was accurate and filed on time, avoiding a late filing penalty from HMRC.
It was then a case of arranging some training sessions with Louise to ensure that she was able to use Xero to its full capacity. After 3 half day sessions with Louise, she is now extremely comfortable with Xero and able to process the many transactions each week with confidence. We also introduce Louise to an invoice scanning system which will save her a lot of processing time.
Should Louise get stuck in the future, we have offered her an email support package.
In our client’s words:
Not having any prior knowledge of Xero Software, when it came to me transferring my accounts from excel, I got myself in a bit of a muddle. Paul Cain came to my rescue helped and trained me, so I am in a much better place and now able to submit my Vat Returns online. It has been a pleasure having Paul in my home working alongside me. He has been very patient with me and always been there to help. I would highly recommend him in the future.
