Where have you been?

Where have you been?

Hi all, welcome back from me an the team (yes, team). I haven’t blogged for a while, hence the title of the post. So what has been going on?

Well, it really has been a manic few months for the practice. Due to a significant amount of growth I have moved out of the glorified shed (my cabin in the garden) and into an actual office unit. This has taken a considerable amount of effort, not necessarily the moving but the little extras that you need – Telephone and Internet (BT broadband problems), Carpetting (fitters delayed planned date for 3 days), filing (wanted to get my admin up to scratch!), Electricity (bombarded with calls as they knew I was moving in!).

But now things are getting back to normal. I mentioned the word team above. This is another change in the practice. Claire (my wife) has been working with me for a while, generally 4 days per week; however, she has always had an arrangement with Wadworth that she goes in there and covers for people when they are away – she has been there since July! I can however, officially welcome Hannah White to the team. Initially on one day a week she will be coming along and sorting my administration, some basic bookkeeping and keeping me organised (a mammoth task).

So as you can see the practice is moving in an upward direction. It is also becoming more systemised. From now on you should see a much better and more organised practice with even more added value being given to clients.

In addition to the above we have won an award. The bookkeepers network have voted me in their inaugural awards as the Most Innovative Accounting firm for 2011. It is a fantastic achievement and really reflects the hard work that is put in to perform the best for our clients.

So there you have it, a brief update of what is going on with the practice at the moment. I look forward to catching up with you all at somepoint – and I am still available to chat.
