Bookkeepers in Buckingham Ltd is a family run business covering Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire Oxfordshire and the Milton Keynes areas. Julie Austen, the founding Director has been working within the bookkeeping field for over 30 years.
The company, Bookkeepers in Buckingham Ltd, (Known locally & affectionately as BiB) was primarily set up as a bookkeeping provider offering companies the opportunity to outsource their bookkeeping and payroll requirements, thereby ensuring that they only pay for the time needed to complete their bookkeeping work and without the added implications of employing their own bookkeeper under their own PAYE scheme.
Bookkeepers in Buckingham is registered under the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers (ICB), and holds a Practice Licence under that organisation.
Over the past 3 years BiB has grown extensively, and in November 2014 they were the proud winners of their first Luca Award for the Best Large Practice. The Luca awards are awarded by ICB Global (the world’s largest bookkeeping organisation) and are sponsored by many of the largest players in the field of accounts including Sage.
By November 2015 the team had expanded, and at the 2015 LUCA Awards, team BiB walked away with ‘two’ of the coveted awards. That evening was our highlight to date. Laurie Austen collected the award for Employee of the year and Julie Austen collected the award for Employer of the year; It was a momentous occasion. In 2016 BiB were again shortlisted for employee of the year, and Rahana Iqbal-Raffell walked away with this amazing award in 2016, making that 2 yrs running for the same award, and also making that our 4 th LUCA award to date! In 2017 we were shortlisted for 3 LUCA’s, but perhaps it was just time to let the others in with a chance…
Having said that we are currently waiting to see how our latest nomination goes. We have been nominated for the Accounting, Audit & Tax Awards 2018!
So, whether you need just a few hours a month or several days on a weekly or monthly basis we can tailor our services to suit your business’s needs. By outsourcing your bookkeeping requirements, you can save yourself the time and effort spent on your paperwork and put your time to the more important tasks of selling and managing your business. Furthermore, by producing clear and concise records for your month/year end you can help to reduce your costs to your accountant at the end of your financial year.
In addition to this due to demand from clients we also now provide cover for all aspects of office administration and training including use of various Sage accounts programs and payroll.
