Samantha is an experienced bookkeeper with an eye for detail and has helped a number of clients who have struggled to get to grips with processing their paperwork, including short-term help getting up-to-date and handing back to them clean and accurate records and files.
Samantha has experience in keeping the accounting records for firms with multi-million pound turnover, down to local tradesmen with more modest incomes, and whether hand written, spreadsheet, or fully computerised systems.
