A2Y Bookkeeping

Providing comprehensive bookkeeping services for our clients and their companies

What is A2Y Bookkeeping?

In layman’s terms, bookkeeping processes accounting sales, purchasing documents and cash flow. However, it may also cover far more advanced elements of the financial process including (but not limited to); risk analysis, legal advice and tax optimisation. The scope of activity of the bookkeeper will depend upon the business owner and how much assistance is required.

A2Y bookkeeping is our specialised service to provide you with an efficient, personalised assistance from an accredited team of professionals. You can rely on Norden's to help you navigate all of the financials of your business - whether that's assisting with company payroll or helping you spot (and rectify) any discrepancies or suspicious activity on the books.

There are rather a lot of similarities between bookkeeping and accounting. However, there is one major distinction between the two - the frequency of the records kept. Whilst accountants typically work in 'quarters' or 'tax periods', bookkeepers are on hand far more regularly, allowing them to keep a much closer eye on your financial records.

Unlike accountants, bookkeepers can also assist in both issuing and chasing up unpaid invoices, processing expense claims and locating appropriate documentation - such as stray receipts or invoices. The role itself can be made relatively bespoke, picking up the financial and administrative slack wherever you company calls for it.

  Why I Founded Nordens
Accounting 2 You

In November 2002, having sold our other business interests off earlier in the year, I decided to set up Nordens Chartered Accountants. The easy part was knowing how to do it, as I had established and built a smaller practice a few years earlier. The difficult part, for me, was not following the traditional accountancy path. Having run businesses, both successfully and unsuccessfully, I wanted to help business owners resolve their short term problems and work with them to achieve their longer term goals. Business has always been my interest and I love that I can help business owners achieve what seems like the impossible every single working day.
