When you are running a business, it is vitally important that you keep your financial matters completely up to date.
This is not just for the benefit of HMRC, but for your benefit as well, as your business can only expand and flourish if you have a clear and accurate picture of how you are performing financially.
You may feel that you do not have the skills necessary to deal with the accurate, day-to-day administration of their financial matters.
Here at Bells Accountants in Kent, we can take over the complete running of your books for you, leaving you free to concentrate on the other crucial aspects of your business which only you can do!
It doesn’t matter to us how large or our small your business is. We can offer you all manner of bookkeeping services, from simply monitoring your income and expenses and advising you as to what you can claim for, right through to the complete accounting package.
We have both the experience and the expertise to provide you with the complete professional bookkeeping service.
We are always available to answer any questions you may have concerning the current financial situation of your business.

It is not a legal requirement for an accountant or bookkeeper to file any of your statutory documents but when considering doing it yourself we would ask you to consider the following:
As a small start-up company we need help with the smallest accounting tasks, right up to the crucial and legally required ones. We had extremely limited knowledge of accountancy and bookkeeping and have hardly needed to lift a finger – Bells have done everything for us!
We have never had a single moment of difficulty and the peace of mind we receive working with Bells, is priceless.
As our working relationship has grown we have been introduced to different members of the Bells team and each and every one of them has maintained the same high level of service, dedication and guidance.
Bells responsiveness is probably the best thing about them. Any questions, no matter how simple they may seem, have been handled quickly and professionally. It doesn’t feel like we are dealing with old-fashioned, stuffy, straight-laced ‘accountants’ – it’s more like phoning up a friend for advice
We have already and will again recommend Bells, to anybody looking for a professional, friendly and responsive accountancy team.

We instructed Bells at the start of 2015 as we were very impressed by their proactive approach to accounting matters. We have found the team to be very personable and their attention to detail is brilliant. Prior to the commencement of our partnership with Bells, we found our relationship with our previous accountant rather distant and often found ourselves contacting them to find out what our deadlines submissions were in the absence of any correspondence from them.
Bells have been great in assisting with our accounts in a very professional and efficient manner and the switch over process was really easy. They have provided us with better cost savings efficiencies that we wouldn’t have thought of. Big thank you to the team and we look forward to continuing our partnership with you!

We highly believed that Bells could advise us when setting up the business, and Bells proved to be of exceptional help by corresponding on our behalf with HMRC, understanding the challenges of our business from the very start, thus enabling us to meet our company’s deadlines.
The fact that Bells has been following our company from its early stages makes the relationship between our two companies even more efficient, as we have the opportunity of going through various stages of our business hand in hand.
Launching a new business is particularly challenging, and having the chance to rely on a trustworthy, efficient and experienced accountant partner is essential. We would highly recommend start-up businesses to instruct Bells from the beginning.

We first started using Bell’s Accountants in 2012 as a start-up charity. Joanne and her dedicated team have always been extremely professional and efficient. Over the years we have developed a great relationship with Bell’s and we work in partnership to make sure our complicated payroll is completed correctly to the benefit of everyone involved. Loraine explains situations and solutions to us very clearly and we very much appreciate her support. I would highly recommend Bell’s to any company looking for a personal service that’s great value for money

Since Bells took over as our bookkeepers, they have proved to be excellent at the job. They are completely accurate and efficient and have also reduced my accountant’s end of year bill. They managed the change-over from my old ‘analogue’ bookkeepers in the middle of a financial year seamlessly and have proved their worth time and again. I have no hesitation in recommending Jo and her Team to any other business owner.
