This is our section where we have comprised a list of questions we are commonly asked.
Why use an outsourced accountant?
One of the main reasons to use an outsourced accountant or bookkeeper is that more often than not it will be cheaper than employing a person to do the same work. Also you can leave all the bookkeeping and accountancy to 1st Stop Accountancy and Tax Services Bristol Ltd without needing to worry about when to file your tax returns, VAT returns etc. We are able to offer our assistance both on-site and off-site, and outside the normal working day if needed.
How do you work?
We can arrange to pick your accounts and data from you or you can drop off your accounts to us. You can also post information to us or send via email, whichever is best suited to you. Most data can be sent via email and electronic means, meaning that it is easier and quicker to process your accounts data which will result in saving you time and money, this is one of the benefits of outsourcing to a bookkeeping/accountancy company.
Can you only do a couple of hours if that is all we require?
Yes, if you only need a few hours of bookkeeping/accountancy carried out we can do this.
How do you price your work?
Either by the hour or we can agree a fixed cost from the start so you will know how much it will cost.
