Bookkeeping is critical because every business needs to maintain accurate and readily accessible financial records to meet best practice and regulatory standards. Legal requirements aside, keeping accurate records and everything in order, makes doing business much easier.
But not all businesses have the in-house skill, time or knowledge to do it properly. Keeping records might sound easy, but mistakes can happen if your bookkeeper is unqualified or inexperienced. Small mistakes can go unnoticed and might cause problems further down the line when your accounts are due.
That’s why we offer a full range of bookkeeping and administrative support services, which will allow you to spend more time on the day-to-day running of your business.
Our bookkeeping service offering is extremely flexible.
You can choose any number of individual services or full administrative support. We will work around what is best for your business. So, whether you want to leave the bookkeeping solely to us, or just use one or two aspects of it, the choice is yours.
We can provide you with a fully qualified and dedicated team on a permanent basis. Alternatively, we can provide you with temporary cover to help you during staff absences or very busy periods. We can also carry out our bookkeeping services at your offices or remotely from our own.

How We Work
Our bookkeeping service is all about making your life easier. We start with a free, no-obligation consultation to discuss what you would like from a bookkeeping service and how we can work most effectively with you.
Should you agree to use our bookkeeping service, you’ll benefit from all the perks of being an Aston Shaw client. We’ll assign a Client Manager to you who will be your sole point of contact. This will allow you to build a meaningful relationship with someone who really understands your business, rather than dealing with lots of people and never really establishing an all-important one-on-one relationship.
As a client of Aston Shaw, unlimited advice and support come as standard.
You can call, email or pop into any one of our offices as much as you like and we’ll always do our very best to assist you. We suspect, however, that once you’ve visited our office and had a barista-style coffee or one of the many cold drinks we have on offer, popping into our office to meet with your Client Manager will be your preferred mode of contact!
Our prices are always fixed fee and our payment methods are always flexible. Whether you would rather pay all in one go or spread the costs over the course of 10 months is completely up to you. We always strive to make things as convenient as possible for our clients.
