Our Bookkeeping & Accounting Services

Here at Do the Sums we offer a range of services to meet your bookkeeping, payroll, accounting and tax needs. We know that most business owners started their business to follow their passion, but the fact is owners often spend huge amounts of time on tasks they don’t like or even understand.  This often leaves you feeling stressed and overwhelmed, or even simply exhausted trying to fit it all in. If your bookwork and accounting tasks are not your passion, it’s time to hand over the stress and headaches to someone who went into business to do just that ‘bookwork’. Book your Free Consultation now to get out from that pile of stress.

We can help you with the following:

Reconciling your Accounts

If you are using an accounting software we can take care of the day-to-day reconciling of transactions and let you get on with the work you love. The beauty of this means your accounts will always be up-to-date and you can see at a glance how things are going in your business, and make sure you are chasing up any late payers.

Loading and Paying the Bills

Managing the accounts payable can be a boring and time-consuming task. We can take care of this for you in a fast and efficient manner, so you can always see what bills are coming due soon, and make payments as they fall due. We can even create a batch and load this into your internet banking ready for you to simply approve for payment. Easy!

Chasing overdue accounts

Often it really is a case of the squeaky wheel gets the oil – but who has the time to be squeaking all day long. We can take over chasing those late payers for you and make sure you have the right systems in place to make sure that cash is flowing into the business smoothly.


Getting your invoices completed and out to clients in a timely manner is critical to getting paid faster. We can work with you to get a system in place to make sure this is done as soon as possible after job completion. We can even do the boring part of entering all the details.
