Bookkeeping Synergy Ltd has proved very professional and highly reliable, having taken over from the internal bookkeeper all the monthly work at two clients. We noticed a huge improvement immediately in each case. Margaret and her colleague Suzanne have been very helpful, and refreshingly, they “will give it to you straight”. You’ll notice the very welcome no nonsense approach. Download Reeves Tax Apps – what a resource!

In an industry where I am constantly dealing with so many variables, it’s invaluable to have such a simple tool to keep my finances in check. As a designer I need peace of mind in order to be able to take risks creatively with my work, not my finances. Margaret invited me over and talked me through setting up on Xero, It took one lesson as the program has a really simple interface and is incredibly intuitive. I had never done a balance sheet or profit and loss account before, constantly feared my Tax Return, and was clueless about claiming my own expenses. All of which Xero has made so simple and I’ve now really started to enjoy the business side of my practise. This service, along with Margaret’s incredibly patient telephone support, has really revolutionized the way I work. As a small, start-up creative practice I could not recommend Bookkeeping Synergy highly enough.
