Bookkeeping - Your Virtual Finance Management

We know that you need your financial information at your fingertips but bookkeeping and paperwork can be a hassle. Do you have the time to spare to keep it all up to date? Most business owners can not dedicate quite enough time unless they drop something else.

Unfortunately, it still has to be done! Leaving it unmanaged and out of control creates problems and potentially hefty accountancy bills further down the line. If you don’t keep books and records in good order, things will inevitably get missed. Small things here and there over time can add up to big consequences, including anything from late filing fees to HMRC investigations.

We know this is a real concern for businesses and yet it’s often left to the last minute in the list of priorities. With our virtual financial management service, you never need to worry.

Legally there is a requirement for you to keep financial records in a prescribed format.

We use Xero cloud accounting software to manage your bookkeeping which not only makes your life so much easier, it is a trusted safe and legally accepted format for your Real Time Information

What are the benefits of a cloud based accountancy system?

  • It saves hours of accounting hours

  • Your information can be accessed by you or your accountant 24/7

  • Access to up-to-date information and reports from any device with an internet connection

  • Your data is backed up! No lost papers or fears about broken laptops. Xero is always secure and backed-up automatically

  • Xero does it’s own updates! All software upgrades are automatically installed.

  • Your records are not only regularly maintained but available to you at any moment which is what we at Real Time Accounting are all about. Your financial information at your fingertips but without the headaches.

    We know that not everyone loves the number crunching. Bookkeeping is up there as one of the least enjoyed tasks for most people! Business owners like to make the money but not necessarily have to do all the money counting. Often it’s an evening or weekends job but we know that eats into your personal time with your family, friends or just relaxation time.

    These services are done weekly but can be done daily if required.
