Accounts Projects was established in 2021 as a sole trade.
There are no partners or employees, so you can expect a one-to-one service. The emphasis is on confidentiality, integrity, objectivity and professionalism. Client relationships are project-based, through which objectives are identified, options are considered and solutions are implemented. Project timespan could be hours, days, weeks or months depending on requirements and budget. The number of concurrent projects is limited to ensure that each receives the attention it deserves.

Thirty years after leaving school, I took the plunge and established my own business offering specific services that play to my strengths. My accumulated experiences in higher education, in multiple workplaces, as a volunteer and in the family home have fostered quiet confidence and broad relatability. I have always been detail focussed and analytical, working with the data, systems and processes at the heart of small, medium and large organisations in a range of sectors. I am naturally inquisitive about the business activities of my peers, taking time to understand their particular situation and guiding them sensitively and reliably towards the positive outcome they hope for.
You are either an owner, a trustee or a senior decision maker in your business. You could be anywhere between starting out and considering retirement. You might be working on your own or have a team supporting you. Perhaps you find yourself wanting some help without having to make a long term commitment. Maybe your business is going through a transition. You could just have a short term problem that needs solving. Whatever your situation, you may not have the time or confidence to face a specific challenge and would like to work with someone else to see it through.
IT literacy is not simply about age. Young or old, tech might not be your thing and you tend to focus your attention elsewhere. Systems go hand in hand with operational processes, and there may well be opportunities to improve either efficiency or effectiveness or both.
Understanding the position and performance of your business is critical to its success. You need timely and reliable data for decision making and statutory reporting, but there is a balance to strike between the value of this output and the cost of the input.
