I am really enjoying my job, it is hard work being self employed but I love the flexibility of working for myself. I am building a great client base with a variety of businesses, all with differing needs. I can create a bespoke package to suit individual needs and this can grow and develop with time. 
I love getting to know what a business does so I can help to reduce their bookkeeping load. 
A record-breaking 10.7 million people submitted their returns on time, with 758,707 filing them on the deadline day. Just over 30,000 customers cut it very fine – they completed their returns between 11pm and 11.59pm on Wednesday. 
If you missed the deadline you could be looking at up to £150 fine.

I have been helping a client who migrated across from Sage desktop to Xero, but unfortunately, there were lots of errors. I manually made changes so that the opening balances were correct and sorted out the bank, purchase and sales ledger balances. I also gave some support to their current bookkeeper to teach her how to use various aspects of Xero. 
I have also recently successfully migrated 2 companies across to Xero from Sage desktop. This allows clients to access 2 years of accounts in Xero and import all their invoices, chart of accounts, customers and suppliers details. I also offer ongoing support as necessary. 
I have had a meeting with 2 companies who would like someone to do their payroll. I like to use Xero payroll as part of the package but I also have another payroll package which I can can use. Quickbooks also offers payroll as well.
