Bookkeeping and admin support
Supporting Your Business
As a small business owner, I understand the challenges owner managed businesses face and the feeling that you have to do it all yourself.
If you spend more time working in your business rather than on your business, I can help you
Just because it’s your business, doesn’t mean you have to do everything. Surely your time is better spent focusing on more specialised areas of your business, the ones you really want to focus on, and leaving the bookkeeping and admin to me.
As a small business owner, you know you have to keep your finances in order but there’s always something more interesting to do, isn’t there? Then, when you do eventually sit down to do your paperwork and sort your books everything is a bit out of control and overwhelming. Well, I’m an ICB registered bookkeeper so I can take care of your bookkeeping for you and keep you on track. Using Xero and its partner integrations like Receipt Bank, Auto Entry and Trip Catcher for tracking your business mileage, I’ll help you keep on top of your finances, save hours of your time and obviously save you money.
I enjoy working with accountants and HR consultants too. As a busy accountant, you probably struggle to fit running background checks around everything else you’ve got to do, so that’s where I come in. I’ll be your back office admin support sending out Letters of Engagement, performing Anti Money Laundering checks and updating Certificates of Due Diligence. And for HR consultants, I’ll act as your independent note taker at disciplinary hearings, transcribe audio files when your meetings have been recorded and prepare your HR handbooks.
If you’d rather not get your head around the numbers, I’m here to help with:
- Bookkeeping to Trial Balance
- Computerised Accountancy Systems
- Credit Control
- Preparation of Final Accounts for Sole Traders/Partnerhips/Not-for-Profits
- VAT Returns
- Self Assessment Tax Returns (coming soon)
You may have recorded an interview or disciplinary meeting and need it transcribing? I can do this for you. I use Express Scribe which allows me to follow what has been said with ease.
Do you attend meetings where you need notes taking, but you want to focus on your client?
With the strictest confidentiality, I work with HR consultants as a note taker during hearings. My clients can concentrate on their client and be confident that all that’s said is being accurately recorded.
Many people still prefer to make notes on paper, but the problem comes when you’ve got to type them up – it takes so much time and you could be doing something much more productive.
Why not let me type your notes up for you?

What my clients say
“Taking minutes at a hearing is never an easy task; people talk quickly and accurately keeping track of the discussion takes focused attention to detail. Ruth has acted as minute taker for me in the past and her work has always been both timely and of a very high standard; she also demonstrates a high level of confidentiality and integrity. I have no hesitation in recommending Ruth in this capacity to other potential clients.”
“Ruth provided an extremely professional and efficient service for my business recently, supporting with formatting of an employee handbook. I highly recommend Ruth to any business owner or HR consultant looking for a reliable and professional admin service.”
“Ruth has been managing my practice’s administration since 2015. She is delightful to work with and has impressed me with her organisational skills. I am now on top of my internal compliance and this is all thanks to Ruth. I would recommend her without hesitation.”
“Ruth is just what you need to get your business firing on all cylinders – or working even better if that’s already the case and you’re short of time to get everything done. I enlisted Ruth to help me find more business when I was unable to dedicate as much time to finding new projects as I would have wished. She was fast, efficient and thorough and reported back to me far sooner than I had expected. Thanks to Ruth I was able to concentrate on my large, individual projects safe in the knowledge that my admin was in good hands. Thanks Ruth!”
“Ruth helped me with my initial MailChimp campaign. There were some challenges which Ruth quickly overcame. Very efficient and I will certainly be using Ruth’s services again.”
