Why should I use Boogles Ltd?
Yes. We work with various accountants, business advisors, business coaches, local bookkeepers etc., who refer work to us. Normally, for accountants, because "bookkeeping" is not not their core business, (they're not interested in invoicing it, or chasing it), then we work on a commission basis. We've also found our rates to be more competitive than what the accountant can offer, and so they are happy to refer us the business. It also means, we're making their life easier, because you know when you get the back-up from a boogles bookkeeper, you can pretty much rely on it's accuracy.
Our commission schedule is available for download.
I am a self employed bookkeeper. Does Boogles have more work than it can manage? Do you want to outsource to me?
Currently, because of the way we are operating, and the constant applications we receive from people looking for work, we don't tend to use self-employed labour as a resource. We would recommend that self-employed contractors contact accountants, who always seem to be looking for bookkeepers.
Where does the name "Boogles" come from?
The name "Boogles" doesn't "mean" anything. It was a name the director liked, and had in mind since the early 1990s and is not connected to or has any association or was influenced by Google.
Boogles was used as our brand name, because we wanted to have a name that was not associated with 'bookkeeping' or 'accounts' specifically. It's a name that can be applied to our various product lines.
Why should I get a book keeper?
You don't HAVE to get in a bookkeeper, but it's to be recommended if your desk looks anything like this...
and you have difficulty locating things e.g. invoices, bank statements etc.,
But my partner / friend / lover / mum does my books. Why do I need a bookkeeper?
Sometimes people have friends and family who help them in their business - to save on costs, and for all hands to be on deck - which is great.... but if the bookkeeper, isn't actually a bookkeeper, or competent on using software, and so are doing things in their own way, or the way they think is best - this might not be very efficient. If this is the case, then we would recommend one of our one day bookkeeping courses to them. At least then, you have the peace of mind, that you've been taught by the pro's.
What do book keepers do?
What are the qualities to look for when you find a good book keeper?
I have no money to pay you. Could we swap services?
Depending upon the type of service you offer, then we might be interested in swapping services e.g. business coaches, restaurants, marketing consultants, networking companies, printers, IT technicians, gyms - we would be interested in coming to an arrangement to 'swap services' with you.
