Safe Hands Bookkeeping

Safe Hands Bookkeeping was formed by Barry Clifton, a former corporate controller, with over 35 years’ experience in managing large accounting departments in both the private and public sectors in the UK and USA.

Our mission is to use this experience to enable small business owners and e-commerce entrepreneurs to successfully scale your businesses, by relieving the stress which comes from doing your own bookkeeping. This frees you to focus on the important stuff, accelerating you towards success and the reasons you decided to become your own boss in the first place.

How do we do this?

Firstly, by relieving you of some of the day to day, humdrum admin tasks, which keep you from doing the “good stuff” – making sales, building your business and increasing your bottom line.  Time you spend away from this, doing admin tasks, has a cost and you can be sure that the cost of your time is more than you will have to pay us to do it for you.

Secondly, we give you accurate monthly financial reports, which we will go through with you. These reports tell you the financial health of your business, how you’re performing and where you need to make adjustments. You will also be in a position to make informed decisions about the future, using your financial statements to build a budget, make investment decisions, etc. and move your business forward.

Bookkeepers are still often thought of as “bean-counters”: backward-looking producers of financial reports that mean little to the business owners they are provided to, and which the bookkeeper is not able to explain or interpret.

This is not true at Safe Hands Bookkeeping, where we are proactive and more of an advisor to the business owners we partner with. We use modern technology to bring efficiency and effectiveness to the table and, above all, make the effort to make sure we understand your business and its needs.
