bookkeeping essentials

All businesses are required to keep accurate records for tax and VAT purposes, but good bookkeeping practices will also help you manage and control your finances. Maintaining accurate financial records is essential to the smooth running of your business and ultimately its long-term success. Your books need to be balanced, otherwise you will face an uphill struggle to keep track of things like stock, suppliers and upcoming taxes.

Many businesses manage this process in-house, but for others, using outsourced bookkeeping services provides better value. With more time to focus on the strategic elements of running a business, owners feel safe in the knowledge that detail is being taken in hand by specialists.

Accurate bookkeeping records can help to:

  • Provide peace of mind that your accounts are accurate
  • Calculate your business profits
  • Determine how much money you are owed
  • Find out what your VAT bill will be
  • Avoid late penalties from HMRC by planning ahead
  • Create management accounts reports that inform business decisions


At Kingston Burrowes, we are here to relieve your team from the burden of in-house bookkeeping. Whether you are just starting up, or established in business, we will explain what records are required and consider what accounting information you need to manage your accounts.

By working closely with our clients, we gain a full understanding of their business and how they run it. We then tailor our approach to deliver the most appropriate and flexible service. 


All you need to do is to provide us with the basic information and supporting documents relating to your income and costs. We can process this on a monthly, quarterly or yearly basis to suit your requirements and with the use of web-based (cloud) accounting software, you will be able to see the performance of your business in real time.

By using our bookkeeping service for small business, you can be assured that your accounts are kept fully up-to-date and in compliance with statutory regulations.
