I help small businesses and self-employed individuals with their accounting and tax affairs at a price to suit their budget, giving you back your most precious commodity, time.

What Clients Say?

My clients are important to me. Here's what they say.

”Admittedly - I'm a bit of a worrier! But BookSmart managed to take all of that away when it comes to ensuring that both my personal and business accounts are kept up-to-date and fully in line with the ever changing financial legislation. What I find particularly impressive is whatever the bookkeeping question and whatever time day or night I send an email I always get a speedy reply with a concise and easy to understand answer.

I wouldn't hesitate in recommending BookSmart to anyone who needs help with their small businesses or personal bookkeeping.“


Adam Evans Freelance Broadcaster

”David at BookSmart has helped us immeasurably at imediamonkey®. As a LTD company with a number of large assets, David has helped us particularly with effective ways of keeping on top of the true financial worth of the business which can often become confused.

Adam, our Commercial Director was particularly pleased with David's knowledge both digitally and manually of keeping books and how his passion for maths meant he was easily able to spot any discrepancies in our numbers.“

Package Ideas

Packages can be adapted and are a starting reference to what you may require.

Items can be added or removed to suit your own needs, providing you with a bespoke deal.

You could, for example, take the silver package and add the self–assessment tax return option for an additional fee. Or if you run a small business from premises, you could take the gold package.

If you want to add Quickbooks online for easier accounting, this could be added for a small fee. Contact me for more details.
