I offer a professional, first class bookkeeping service tailored to your individual needs. Reliable and trustworthy, my aim is to offer a service to Businesses and Sole Traders by taking on the responsibility of your books. By using the services you will not only benefit from a reduction in cost of accountancy fees but also gain valuable time to concentrate on what makes your business work, sales, production, and service.

Providing a full range of services to Businesses, Sole Traders and Accountants, work can either be carried out on or off site. Hourly rates are based on services required and your initial consultation is free.

Astute Bookkeeping Glossop was set up by myself, Jamie Richardson in order to provide a professional bookkeeping service to support Businesses and Sole Traders in the North West of England.

Experienced with both manual and computerised accounts in a variety of business areas, I offer support to high turnover Private Limited Companies as well as Sole Traders.

I constantly keep up to date with both current and new legislation and ensure that I personally continue with my own CPD. Having gained a number of recognised qualifications, I am currently studying towards the Level 4 Accountancy qualification which I am expecting to complete in the summer of 2014. My plan will then be to complete a Payroll Course which will give me the qualification to offer my clients Payroll Services.
