Book-keeping Support

Support with the on-going paperwork and maintaining books

How we help

Hiring a part or full time book-keeper can be expensive.

Engaging NR Barton as your book-keepers means you can hand it all over and let us deal with your invoice processing, bank reconciliations and your nominal, sales and purchase ledger maintenance.

Our team of dedicated experts are here to help run your business from the book-keeping perspective.

Peace of mind

You also have peace of mind that the books of your business are compliance with relevant legislation. Company law requires all businesses to abide by statutory rules and to include certain information in their accounts.

Keeping your books and paperwork in good order additionally means you will have peace of mind when dealing with HM Revenue and Customs.

Meanwhile, maintaining control over your business finances means you monitor whether you are trading profitably and take corrective action if necessary
