Spending more and more time doing the books rather than getting those sales?

In this day and age red tape and clerical activities are taking up more of your productive time but knowing how much customers owe you and how much you owe your suppliers is much more important in a recession when cash flow is tight.

However the time taken doing the admin is time better spent in getting new business. What is needed is a way of doing the admin but keeping the costs and time down to a minimum.

The way to do this is to use Virtual assistants from Sabre Business Bookkeeping Limited.

We offer a bespoke Bookkeeping service that is tailor made to suit your requirements.

All clients have their own specific needs therefore it is important to us to understand and implement the right package for each client on an individual basis. We are committed to providing a level of service that our clients can be proud of as well as having the peace of mind that Sabre can act as an extension to your business.

Remember: Your sucess is our success.

Invoice production

The simplest procedure is producing accurate invoices. Sabre can provide you Excel templates that will not only produce a good looking invoice but will also calculate VAT and create a record of all invoices created. This log could be used to record payments from your customer. Another sheet on the spreadsheet could be used to record the expenses and supplier invoices. From this information you have a basic book keeping system.

Manual or computerised accounts

Sabre offer a service where we can take all your invoices and receipts and create a set of accounts for you. This can be a manual Excel spreadsheet or we can enter the information in to a standard accounting system. We can offer a one off service, a basic setup of an accounts package for you to run with - optionally we could provide a month end service, through to complete services where we look after the accounts function for you. The choice is yours.

Sage line 50 training and installation

Your accountant will most likely recommend Sage. This comprehensive product will provide all the functionality you will need now or in the future. The problem with it is it is written by accountants for accountants. This means you may need the help of installation experts to help you install the software. These experts and the software are not cheap. Let Sabre's virtual assistants help you install the software and then supply assistance as and when needed.

QuickBooks training and installation

The second most popular recommendation from your accountant. This product is more user friendly than Sage and you do not need to be an accountant to understand this. It is quicker to set up and easier to correct input errors which is why it is recommended by Sabre as the best accounting software for small businesses. Again we can help install, set up the software and train your staff. We can run it for you from our office or we can do just the month end to ensure you are on track.

Virtual bookkeeping via internet

There are several tools that will allow Sabre's virtual assistants to log in to a PC on your site and run your accounts remotely. Information can be sent by post or email to our offices and we will log in and update your system remotely. This saves on travel time and expense and we only charge for the time online and any postage costs.

VAT returns

All VAT returns are now entered online. Sabre can act as your agent and can ensure that VAT returns are done in a timely fashion and if you subcribe to the direct debit facility that HM Revenue offer we can guarantee payements will be made on time in order to avoid any penalties accruing
