If you are a small to medium sized business, looking for affordable and efficient bookkeeping within the North East, The Counting House are here to help. We serve clients from Whitley Bay and Newcastle, to South Shields and Team Valley.

Bookkeeping can be a time consuming tedious task and keeping it all up-to-date can be challenging for any business, whether it’s a sole trader, limited company or partnership. We work with our clients to ensure that their books are always up to date, and important deadlines are always met.

We operate a number of accounts packages and will help you choose the right one to suit your business needs.

Sales Invoicing

We can raise your invoices to your customers in a timely manner, so that you have a clear picture of who owes you and when it’s due.

Purchase Invoicing

We can process your invoices from your suppliers in a timely manner, so that you have a clear picture of who you owe and when it’s due.

Credit Control (Debt Chasing)

Are you finding it difficult to keep on top of money owed to you? If so, we can help by chasing your customers on a regular basis, ensuring that funds come in regularly (and you still get to maintain a good working relationship with your customer).

Payroll Services

CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY SCHEME (CIS)

We can take care of your CIS scheme, regardless of size and frequency. All documents will be emailed to you in plenty of time for you to make the payments to you sub-contractors, and all HMRC filing deadlines will met. We will also ensure that any CIS you suffer whilst working as a sub-contractor is declared and recovered.
