In addition to the benefits it offers, the government are mandating the use of digital accounting records, starting in April 2019 (for VAT – subject to legislation), and will eventually require quarterly returns for all but the very smallest businesses.
We are partners with the leading suppliers of this type of software; Xero, Quickbooks Online and Sage One.
This type of software can offer a significant number of benefits including;
As the information is online in the cloud, we can access your software in real-time to give you advice, solve accounting queries or review information prior to submitting a VAT return (or future Making Tax Digital requirements) without making date backups to transfer data to us. It also enables us to easily take away from you some, or all, of the burden of bookkeeping. For instance, you can raise sales invoices, but we could manage the purchases and expenses, releasing you to do the important job of running your business.
The software is always up to date, with no annual upgrades to be purchased. There are regular improvements made out of normal working hours, which are communicated to you in bite sized pieces, allowing you to take full advantage of them. The data is backed up for security by the software provider, and is all taken care of in an easy monthly subscription.
Although some of the suppliers have traditional desktop software, all the online software has been designed for use online and to be accessed via different devices, such as phones and tablets on the go (email a customer an invoice whilst you are with them!), as well as pc’s and laptops. They are very user friendly and are simple and engaging to users.
Gone are the days of entering bank transactions into your software. You can save time by importing transactions directly from your bank, meaning fewer errors due to mistyping, or missing transactions. The software also remembers your recurring payments and receipts and will suggest the correct category to use.
Are you fed up with paper filing? If you want to, you could scan your paperwork (or even take a photo on your smartphone) and attach it to the transaction in your software. No hunting for lost information months later. Clever technology using add-on’s to the software, such as Receiptbank, will even recognise all the details on your invoices and till receipts and can enter them onto the software for you.

“I would like to place on record my sincere gratitude to Mark Leece and his team for all the sterling work they do. My knowledge of payroll matters could be written on a postage stamp and Mark and his team take care of absolutely everything including auto enrolment. He is always available for advice and is an absolute godsend !”
“Beech were excellent when they stepped in to support on a transition for our Management Accountant who was retiring. Over a 3 month rigorous and often complex handover they moved our system onto cloud based package Xero, giving the management team access to real time information. As a charity it is critical that we manage our funding and performance very carefully in line with legislation and business planning. We rely on Beech to prepare our monthly pack and Jo attends monthly board meetings, providing a valuable sounding board and critical friend approach helping us give future direction to the business.”
“Accurate financial information is critical to the successful running of our business. Beech, through Jo, produce accurate and timely monthly management accounts. David always highlights anomalies to expectation and helps us to make proactive and informed decisions.”
“When we got the opportunity to expand the Retreat brand to open a new restaurant, Beech helped us with our business plan and prepared cashflow projections which enabled us to secure the necessary funding to support the deal. They also formed a new company and advised on the registration for VAT etc “
“The main benefit of our partnership with Beech is that, with their support and advice, we have the knowledge to make confident business decisions. They have been a great help with our recent expansion of both shops and product lines. Jo produces a monthly pack explaining in detail departmental performance in comparison to previous year and budget. Chris attends monthly meetings to discuss the results and challenge us on the way forward.”
“We have been working with Philip and the Beech team for many years and they are an extension of our finance team.
Management accounts are produced monthly to department level, which are then reviewed in monthly board meetings with Phil to make sure we are moving in the right direction “
