What People Say About LEO Bookkeeping Services
“I wanted a hands free bookkeeping service so I could focus on my business not my accounts. Lucie provides a fast, friendly and above all professional service that matches my needs perfectly.”
Terry Ruddy - Streetwise Digital Marketing Ltd
" We are very lucky to have found Lucie when we did, in such a short time of working with her she has fixed so many major problems that have already made a positive impact on our business . Lucie is very professional and knows familiar systems inside and out, she is very genuine about helping your business save time and has advised great apps to do so. The first time I sat down with Lucie for some Xero financial training, I honestly learnt more in 6 hours than in a year of using the system. Lucie, previously being a teacher has a great impact as she sure knows how to do effective training. Lucie adapts to you and provides efficient training that I will continue to get from her. I would recommend to anyone! Thank you Lucie."

"Lucie was very helpful and informative guiding us through setting up Xero and helped with any questions we had. I would highly recommend her for any small or large business."
Katy Evans - Net Position Ltd
"Thank you for your patience and understanding whilst taking me through the Xero website and everything I need to do regarding my accounts.
You have been with me at every step and have thoroughly explained what I need to do. You have also taken me through step by step the Xero system and have spent hours making sure I understand the processes. Not only that, you have also checked in with me on numerous occasions to make sure I am on the right package to suit my changing needs.
You really do have the patience of a saint, thank you for putting up with me!"
Gemma Byran - Jigsaw HR Solutions Ltd
"I had LEO Bookkeeping sort out the tax stuff for my Limited company. Brilliant service from them. The communication was excellent, any questions I had were answered quickly and clearly, which made the whole process smooth and stress-free. Highly recommend."
Cai Parry-Jones - C.Parry-Jones Ltd
"Lucie is amazing, originally I just needed some order in my life around expenses, understanding my incoming and outgoings and a little bit of advice. That changed after our first workshop. Lucie and the team are now managing all aspects of my day to day financial running of my business as well as managing all Digital Tax matters. Simply takes the headache away, is a great financial mentor and is available whenever you need some advice. Cannot recommend highly enough if you need some time back in your business."
Simon Nichols - Barefoot MS Ltd
For a business and a business owner, an accountant plays an extremely important role, particularly
when it comes to tax returns, compliance and submission deadlines.
In late January it became apparent that my accountant had no intention of filing my personal tax
return, let alone replying to my continuous emails or telephone calls. You can imagine my horror with the looming January 31st deadline and impending fine. Add to this late submissions to Companies House (all of which I thought was in hand), my stress levels were through the roof!
I didn’t know where to turn. And then I remembered Lucie Howard from LEO Bookkeeping Services,
who we had previously met and had assisted me with some bookkeeping issues. Numerous phone calls later and two evenings before submission deadline, Lucie was at my house sorting my tax return and also my husband’s.
She didn’t think twice in offering her precious down time to help me in my situation and I am extremely grateful. Lucie went above and beyond what I would ever expect from a supplier and helped me enormously.
Lucie has now taken control of my accounts on a permanent basis and her service is far greater than I had previously received. She is professional, knowledgeable and above all, organised. I would not hesitate in recommending Lucie’s services to a fellow business owner.
Thank you Lucie, I look forward to a great working relationship.
Kerry Lewis-Stevenson - NN and MK Pulse Magazines
"Lucie did my tax return and she was very professional and efficient. She kept me updated throughout and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her"
"I just wanted to thank you for the amazing work that you have done so far for Marketing Wizdom Online Ltd.
When we initially engaged your bookkeeping services you had an enormous task of straightening things out, but you did it incredibly quickly and efficiently. We appreciate how pro-active you are, and the advice you gave on which systems and applications to use, in order to simplify and make our business more efficient, has been invaluable.
I have been blown-away by your professionalism and how you’ve enabled managing the financial side of our business so much less stressful. You have given us back precious time to be able to focus on what our business is about.
We now think of you as a valued member of our team and would not hesitate in recommending your services to anyone else in business.
So once again, thank you."

Lucie Howard has managed the accounting records of the Northampton Mens Own Rugby Football Club for some years and has undertaken the task diligently and effectively throughout that time.
Apart from maintaining accounting records she provides information to support VAT reclaims, financial updates to our secretary and for presentation to the committee, completes draft annual accounts for our accountants to enable the production of statutory accounts along with other ad hoc accounting duties common to an organisation such as ours.
Unlike a commercial enterprise with a defined structure, our club has many volunteers who liaise with Lucie and whose duties often involve the collection or paying out of money. Lucie is prepared to accept this situation which is essential to our club's operation with courtesy and efficiency. I have no hesitation in recommending her to potential clients.
William Kingston - Northampton Mens Own Rugby Football Club
"Lucie has done an excellent job of organising my very disorganised book keeping and setting up systems for me to follow. Her work is diligent, accurate and extremely efficient. I highly recommend her services. Thank you, Lucie, for finding a way to keep my accounts in order (which, as you know is a job I hate!) and finding a system which works for me."
Mandy Lazenby - Mandy's Memory Bears
"I wanted to write to thank you for the support you gave me in setting up Xero and training me on how to use it (more than once)...
Having made the decision to move from excel spreadsheets and an invoicing template, I spoke to you to try and gauge an understanding of what moving everything entailed, you took me through the process taking time to explain the benefits of the software you use along with the support you can offer.
Your expertise and the way in which you explained everything, made for a painless transition onto the new software and your ongoing support along with your patience when I forget how to do something, has enabled me to use the software with confidence.
I would not hesitate to recommend you to any of my clients or anyone else, as the service you provide is second to none. Thank you!"
John Rose - Abbott Rose Ltd
"Since we changed to LEO Bookkeeping Services we have never looked back. Efficient and always willing to come up with an answer no matter what time of day. The move to Xero accounting software is one of the best decisions we have ever taken. The platform is so easy to understand and has been a key factor in improving the financial efficiency of F&F Projects Ltd."
Danny Hodrien - F&F Projects Ltd
"Having recently launched my own business I decided that like on the old HMRC catchy jingle 'don't let tax be taxing' that I really needed the help of an expert to navigate me through my introduction to this complicated world.
I started working with Lucie in April and since then she has personally guided me through the process of setting up the best bookkeeping plan to suit my business.
She has spent time with me getting to know more about my set up, my transactions, my sales and has provided professional advice that has been tailored to what I need. Lucie has helped me understand the accounting software; she's made some great recommendations about where to put my business accounts so that my income is easily synced with the accounting software. Not only has her advice helped me make some important decisions about which plans to start on, but her way of working has had my best interests at heart and will ultimately save me time and money in the future.
I find Lucie very easy to work with, she's patient, reliable and has been very accommodating by explaining how it all works.
Thank you, Lucie - I would have no hesitation at all in recommending your services."
Nadine Judd - Travel Counsellor
I would like to thank you for all the work you have done to get my financial records in order. Like many businesses, I reached a point last year when I simply needed to find a better way to do things. You are my ‘better way’.
No more spreadsheets for me! It’s all on Xero, so I can easily reconcile my bank account, at least twice a month now. I can automate invoicing and keep track of payments. I can even automatically send receipts and purchase invoices straight to Xero, which is so much simpler.
You have saved me so much time and if I ever need advice, you’re always so helpful. I won’t hesitate to recommend you.
Christine Nairne - Tesserae Communications
"Lucie is currently helping me with all my bookkeeping, and in the last 6 months has been absolutely brilliant in completely organising my finances which I was struggling with. She has set me up for VAT, PAYE, CIS and dealt with HMRC. I now feel more confident with moving forward with my business. Lucie has taken a weight off my shoulders and I can now concentrate on my business. I would highly recommend to others, Lucie is very friendly and easy to get on with."
