What we do

Finance Department / Data Services

Accurate, current, data is vital for decision making. Book-keeping records and financial data are used to analyse the history of business transactions and to plan for the future. Other forms of data help to better improve our understanding of understand customer behaviours and trends.

Book-keeping

Many small businesses see book-keeping as a paper-pushing exercise and regulatory burden rather than being of benefit. Often when stretched for time book-keeping is the first thing to be put to one side.

Keeping on top of things is the key to business survival and it doesn’t have to be complicated Simple book-keeping can be done very successfully by way of a simple spreadsheet. We can also use most mainstream accounting packages for greater volumes of transactions including Sage, Quickbooks, and, MYOB, and online packages such as Xero, FreeAgent, Sage One and Kashflow.

To look after your books we just need a) remote access to your computer system, or b) access your cloud based accounts package or c) to keep the ‘live’ version of the accounting file at our offices. Your receipts and invoices can be sent to us periodically by post or electronically and we will then input all the information onto your preferred system. We make sure all your paper records are in order, to ensure the year end process of getting all the correct paperwork to the your accountant is as streamlined and efficient as possible. If you are VAT registered we’ll keep track of incoming and outgoing VAT payments so that when the time comes, completing the necessary VAT return is a breeze.

And don’t worry if you’ve currently got a backlog of papers – quite often when clients first come to us they’ll arrive with a large bin bags of unsorted paperwork that needs attention. We love the challenge of turning chaos into well-ordered files of useful information.

Invoicing and Credit Control

One of our favourite tasks is to help manage invoicing and credit control systems. If you’d prefer not to have to worry about any of the sales paperwork we can do it for you. We’ll prepare and issue your sales invoices in a timely fashion, making sure they include the right information and get to the right person for approval to ensure the best possible turnaround time for payment.

We can also take care of chasing your outstanding invoices too. We will agree with you a set of procedures to work to and then keep an eye on payments due in. We’ll politely yet firmly chase those which are due, keeping records of all phone conversations and statements sent out etc. We’ll even take cheques to the bank when they come in, if you’d like.

fridaygirl can effectively become your entire accounts department and as far as your clients or suppliers are concerned we are just an extension of your office.

Remember, fridaygirls are not just excellent bean-counters, we’re also business owners ourselves, which means we have experience of the many issues affecting small businesses.

For your peace of mind we are registered for Data Protection with the Information Controller, all waste documentation is cross-cut shredded prior to disposal and our computer system is backed up remotely off site every night to prevent against data loss.

The ‘fridaygirl feeling’ doesn’t end there – we offer so much more than just accounts and data processing. See our other departments for more information.
