We are proud of the work we do but don’t just take our word for it, take a read of what our clients have to say in a selection of our testimonials.

“We have used The Bookkeeping Department for nearly 2 years & the service we receive is fantastic. The management reports we get enable us to measure & manage our business much more effectively.”


Garage Owner

“Professional, helpful, always available and good value for money.
Certainly the best bookkeeping solution we have found in almost ten years of trading.”

Owner of Multiple Coffee Shops

“The Bookkeeping Department offer a friendly, helpful and very cost-effective way of managing your accounts. If you are looking to outsource your bookkeeping, I cannot recommend them highly enough.”



“The Bookkeeping Dept managed my affairs in a business I have now been forced to sadly end due to a shortfall in funding. They’re service during that period was professional and impeccable. They took the time to understand the needs of my business and were attentive and responsive to all my demands. The pricing was fair and I cannot speak highly enough of them. I am now building a new venture and when revenues allow will employ them again without need to look elsewhere. Please do get in touch if you need further verification.”

Software Developer

“Our company has been using the services of The Bookkeeping Department for over a year and we find them and their staff to be excellent. Always reliable, supportive and forward thinking in their skills. I would thoroughly recommend any business to try their services.”


Online Retailer

“Received excellent overview of Xero which I am rolling out to my clients. Have no hesitation in recommending.”



“THANK YOU so much for the Xero training today. You were wonderful hosts and the training you put together was just right. It was easy to understand which is what we all needed. You made understanding a new software so much easier than trying to do an online training course. Which as you know I’m not that good at. So thank you Lynne & Alistair much appreciated.”



“I have no hesitation in recommending The Bookkeeping Department. I am new to Xero so attended one of their group Xero sessions to get me started with all the basic information. I then booked a 1-2-1 which was more specific to my business. I have been looking for a company that was able to provide this service and I am very happy to have found The Bookkeeping Department. I am now a lot more confident in using Xero and am working my way around the software. Lynne was super helpful, friendly and taught me how to start whizzing through all my income & expenses in no time. I now have all the information I need in front of me for MTD purposes and also keeping regular tabs on how my business is doing. Very happy.

The Xero workshop I attended really exceeded my expectations, the content and delivery were both excellent!”


Public House Owner

“I came to today’s Xero Workshop with a lot of frustration from many tutorials that did not make much sense. Today’s training was lifesaving and stress relieving.”

Xero Training workshop attendee

“The Bookkeeping Department have been able to help me complete my year-end reconciliation and bookkeeping tasks at short notice. I was particularly pleased to receive friendly and professional support and also helpful advice to enable me to be more effective maintaining my own records in future. I would recommend their services without hesitation.”



“When I sold my business the bookkeeper I had ceased operating and as luck would have it I found The Bookkeeping Department on the internet. Alistair sorted out all my problems in an efficient friendly and helpful manner. He took all the stress off me at a time when I needed a lot of help. I can recommend him as a first class bookkeeper, I wish I had found him earlier.”


Garage Owner

“I would like to say a massive thank you for helping me out with Xero.
Having worked with you, I now feel super-organised and totally relaxed that my numbers are in safe hands. You have saved me so much time, and also prevented me from falling out with Xero customer services! I was completely perplexed at the prospect of entering my opening balances into Xero, whilst also experiencing some strange bugs relating to PAYE and bank reconciliation.
Your knowledge of Xero and organisational skills were a force to be reckoned with, as you resolved all the issues we were experiencing.”


Digital Marketing Agency

“Lynne is very approachable. She gave me information and professionally delivered presentation at the networking group we attend. I took up her offer of a free consultation where she reassured me about my bookkeeping records. She advised me on how to reduce my accountancy fees and it worked!”

Marketing Consultant

“Thank you for today’s excellent Xero workshop. It showed me that Xero is not as daunting as I thought. It was very relaxed atmosphere and Lynne was very approachable.”

“I’ve worked with Lynne and her team at The Bookkeeping Department for several years. Lynne is a great bookkeeper and we have been very happy to refer work where our clients have needed bookkeeping help. Lynne’s knowledge of Xero is particularly good and anyone using Lynne will find her to be friendly, reliable and knowledgeable. Exactly what you need in a bookkeeper!!”


“The Bookkeeping Department afford us an excellent service to manage our books, enabling us to concentrate on our primary role within the business. They have a highly personalised manner in which they communicate with us so that we remain informed but are unencumbered by the numbers. I would not hesitate in promoting and recommending The Bookkeeping Department for their services.”

Language Services

“My business over the past year has grown considerably, very quickly, it left me with very little time to keep on top of my bookkeeping. I had an initial meeting with Lynne, and, feeling, quite embarrassed explained that the paperwork ‘if I said was in a bit of a mess’ would be an understatement! Lynne reassured me that she was quite used to it! I handed everything over.
Lynne dealt with my bookkeeping, efficiently and professionally and went way above what I had expected. Thank you Lynne! I am truly grateful.”
