Back office services

We do the drudgery, so you don’t have to
Get in touch

At Chandlers we we offer a range of outsourced back office services including bookkeeping and management accounts because we know that the last thing you need when starting up a new business, or simply working hard in an existing one, is thinking about more paperwork. That’s why we do the drudgery, so you don’t have to.

Bookkeeping Services

The service we provide is tailored to your specific needs. Either, Chandlers can take on the full bookkeeping role, ensuring that your books are kept up-to-date and provide you with regular management accounts to keep you informed along the way. Or, we can provide a useful and illuminating monthly ‘check-up’ using the financial data you supply us with.

Either way you’ll always be ahead of the game, meeting those all important deadlines and, most importantly, be able to direct your resources more efficiently elsewhere in the business. After all, we all know that it is essential to keep checks on –

  • Cashflow – many businesses got bust not because they are not profitable, but because they run out of cash..
  • Profitability – you need to know how much money you are actually making in the long and short term
  • Performance ratios – key numbers to help you compare one fiscal period to another
  • Budget comparisons – keeping an essential reality check on the relation between projected performance and actual performance

Management accounts

At Chandlers we can also control and negotiate your bank account(s). Ensuring that you have an updated and fully agreed bank position, especially if dealing with foreign currency accounts, will allow you to anticipate the account’s future performance. Determining this strong bank account position will also make sure you direct your resources to the most appropriate areas, improve cash collection and postpone the settlement of creditors, if necessary.

Yes, with Chandlers it really is that simple.

Unfortunately, we do also know that those who fail to keep abreast of such accounting fundamentals can lead themselves into a quagmire of problems: regulatory penalties, missed tax saving opportunities and sub-optimal business performance, to name but a few. Those who do, however, thrive.

"I'm a foreign national with a fairly complicated freelance and investment income situation. Richard Shaul and Chandlers have been my accountants for five years, and have sorted through matters for me with skill, efficiency and, when requested, against urgent deadlines. A fine job, consistently. I heartily recommend them!"

− Bill Wright

"Richard has been my accountant for almost 15 years. He has always delivered a timely, pragmatic and value-for-money service throughout that time. He is able to demystify the complexities of accounting – and tax in particular - and articulate sane and clear advice in layman's terms. I would recommend Richard and his firm without reservation."

− Nick Bennett

"I have worked with Chandlers for the last 8 years and have never looked back. Perhaps most importantly, they always make themselves available – offering their very perceptive and professional advice. As a small to medium sized FCA regulated firm I have the upmost confidence leaving our outsourced accounting and payroll functions in Chandler's unquestionably capable guardianship."

− Arnoud van Leeuwen

"Richard Shaul has been my accountant for the last 5 years. He's quick and meticulous, and the service he provides is very good value for money. He has a high level of technical knowledge and he's somebody I can talk to and trust. He ticks all the boxes for me."

− Antonio (Dentist)

"Approachable, supportive and dejargonized accountancy support - I'd recommend him to anyone. Thank you Richard for all your support over the last 6 years."

"Sound, sensible advice plus when your work life is really hectic, you can be sure he will keep you on track with those polite deadline reminders which have been priceless. I've recommended Richard to friends and colleagues who have always been more than happy with the guidance he had provided. Couldn't do without him!"
