Client invoicing and VAT returns were laborious for engineering and building consultant Nick Cooke. Read how he got annual accounts under-control.
Nick Cooke & Associates is an engineering and building consultancy based in Billericay, Essex. The firm specializes in structural inspections for homebuyers, and provides a structural design service for homeowners and small businesses.
Back in 2014 business owner Nick felt it was high time that the company’s invoices were prepared with the use of a professional accountancy package to negate the loss of paperwork, effectively keep track of costs and expenses, and better prepare annual accounts and quarterly VAT returns.
Here, Nick Cooke explains:
“I had been managing day to day bookkeeping myself, but it was incredibly time-consuming manually keeping track of costs and expenses. Not only that, the home-admin systems I used often meant that the preparation of annual accounts and quarterly VAT returns were laborious and in-efficient.
By outsourcing bookkeeping and quarterly VAT returns to Oscar Fairchild the way I work has been totally transformed for the better. I now have simplified VAT control and reconciliation and feel 100% confident that my business VAT return will be accurately completed and submitted, before the deadline.
Oscar Fairchild provide a first class bookkeeping service. Nothing is too much trouble and they are always on hand to answer my bookkeeping queries as and when they arise. They constantly save me a great deal of time. And I have to say I believe they are remarkably good value”.
