Welcome to Our New Blog

Coffee with biscuitsIn the past, we’ve kept our views quiet and let our work speak for itself. Naturally, some customers want to know a bit more about us and why we make the choices we do, so this new blog is a place for topics not strictly related to getting your payroll done.

We had a blog some years ago but it was mostly about using the site, which is now covered by our online guides.

You’ll notice that the blog goes against the trend in that it doesn’t have a warning about cookies. That’s because it doesn’t use any cookies. If anyone tells you it is impossible to create a blog without using cookies, feel free to cite this example.

Our main payroll site only uses cookies when you choose to log in. This cookie comes under the legal definition of “strictly necessary” so it doesn’t have the warning either.

If you follow a link off our site, you’re back in the wild west and can expect to be bombarded not only with invisible cookies, but also with visible warnings about cookies.

I’ll say more about cookies later. In the meantime, welcome, put your feet up, grab a drink and a biscuit and I’ll try to give you something interesting to read.

  1. Hi Steve – just saw this link on Fb – I was widowed recently and looking to find part time work – I am registered as self employed as I do a bit of freelance medical transcription but the pay is dire – is book keeping something that I could train for and work as a small business from home? If so, can you give me some pointers as to what courses to take etc?

    1. Hi Wendy,

      Lots of people do work as self-employed bookkeepers, but this isn’t really my area of expertise. Perhaps you could get some advice from the International Association of Book-keepers (IAB), the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers (ICB) or the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT)? These organisations all have lots of self-employed bookkeepers as members in the UK and they all provide training. I can’t recommend a particular one, as I’ve no personal experience with them.

      I hope this helps,
