My case studies

I put 25 years worth of experience into every project. These are just a few examples:

Solutions – Electrical Firm

Solutions – Electrical Firm

They knew that by Christmas they would have a clear & precise system in place which would not only enable them to start the new year knowing exactly what stock they had, what they needed & where it was but that could also be used in future years.

Book Keeping – MNL Ventilation

This was a start up business that needed ongoing help with Book Keeping which they had no experience in themselves. I put together a system for purchases & sales, so they knew exactly where they were financially at any given time.

Growing business – Social Media

Another growing business where the proprietors did the majority of the work themselves. They needed someone to share the workload in order to free up their time to grow the business further.

  • I have known Nicola for a number of years and worked closely with her on the installation of her payroll system to manage both the hourly and salary paid staff at her offices in Ossett. Nicola is methodical and very competent and has fully embraced the payroll system and the database application that controls deliveries and invoicing. I would highly recommend her for all office administration and book keeping functions as she is well versed in all aspects of the accounting procedures required for the smooth running of any small to medium sized business. Nicola is very personable and completely trustworthy and I feel would fit seamlessly into any office environment.

  • I would like to thank you for helping us out in our time of need. We had unforeseen circumstances when our accounts lady fell ill with a serious problem that meant that she would be off work for a few weeks. As I am not familiar in the operations of sage, we would have been a little stuck. We could have made payments etc. but we would have had to go back to a paperwork accounting format! Anyway we asked you to come in and help us out and you were so helpful. You not only managed to keep our sage and payroll going and up to date but you also looked after all our payments, petty cash and receipts just working 1 day a week. Thank you very much for this service I would have no hesitation at all in calling you to help out again if we should ever need your help in the future.

    Bank Manager prior to selling business
  • During Nicola's time with the company she has streamlined the office, which has saved both time & money. We have found her knowledge of the Banking & Insurance industry invaluable. She is both hard working and reliable, her ability to multi-task and work under pressure especially during our busy periods is commendable.

    Eric Richmond & Sons Ltd
  • I met Nicola at a crucial stage in the development of my graphic design business. At that point, cash flow was a serious issue and late invoice payments the cause. After a glowing reference from a very reliable source, Neil Jaggar, I met with Nicola to discuss my situation. Shortly after our meeting and with very little brief, Nicola began to contact my client list, very subtly introducing herself as the new Credit Controller of Six Design & Digital, explaining her function with the company and that should payments fall behind she would be in contact with them to discuss the timescales in which the company would receive them. From that point on my aged debtor book has been significantly reduced and my cash flow is improving every day. I can’t recommend Nicola highly enough for her professionalism and regular, precise communication. Thank you Nicola, I hope to work with you for many years to come.

  • Nicola started doing the wages for our company in April this year.  In addition to the Payroll she helps with & submits our VAT.  She is always there to help us with any other aspects of our business.  We have been very happy with what she has done for us especially as she was 'thrown in at the deep end'.
