Check out my Bookkeeping FAQs

Should a bookkeeper be qualified?

Absolutely, yes. If you are looking to use a bookkeeper, ask them for their qualifications and supervisory body. Cactus Bookkeeping is qualified, supervised, regulated, supported by the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers, and are fully insured.

Are accountants and bookkeepers the same?

In general, a bookkeeper will deal with the day-to-day accounts, VAT returns and ensure all information is correct at year-end. An accountant will analyse the information provided by the bookkeeper, prepare tax returns and provide tax planning.
I work closely with client’s accountants to provide a full financial service.

What companies need a bookkeeper?

Anyone can benefit from working with a bookkeeper, whether they are a sole trader, not-for-profit organisation, or a limited company. If you are unsure what information needs to go into your accounts, you don’t feel comfortable dealing with VAT and compliance or you simply don’t have the time, a bookkeeper will be able to help.

Do I need to tidy up my accounts/paperwork before I hand it over?

I offer a catch-up/clean-up service which is charged separately.

How much will a bookkeeper cost?

I offer bespoke packages priced according to your requirements. To find out more, please book a discovery call.


What my Clients Say

When I first approached Sue to take on the task of looking after my 3 businesses over 11 years ago, I didn't quite expect the care and attention she would deliver. Sue has been amazing in her support, understanding and patience. She works in the background keeping things running smoothly. Looking after things so you can get on with running your business. I totally recommend Sue.
