If you are a sole trader or an individual looking for someone who can remove the burden of dealing with your bookkeeping tasks, or your self assessment tax return, then look no further.
As an Associate Member of the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers I am fully qualified to do this work on your behalf, dealing with HMRC (Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs) as necessary, as well as providing the support you need to optimise and grow your business.
My name is Martin Danes and I live in Rayleigh, Essex. I am an Associate Member of the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers and I specialise in Bookkeeping, VAT, and self-assessment for sole traders and individuals. I can offer you a package of services designed to meet your needs. Please see the section on pricing for more information.
Previous to my bookkeeping career, I worked for many years as an IT Project Manager in London, on a variety of projects, both big and small. I have an eye for detail and an ability to quickly analyse and assess data and highlight where any issues might arise, allowing a speedy response to ensure they don’t turn into problems. These skills are just as relevant in my role as a bookkeeper, and allow me to provide the help and support that sole traders are generally looking for in order to run their businesses effectively.
If you are a sole trader looking for the type of services I provide, then please contact me for a free informal chat.
Completing a self assessment tax return can seem a daunting task. If you are not sure what information to provide you may end up paying more than you should. Also, if you do not complete your Self Assessment Tax Return by the deadline date, together with all relevant forms to declare that you are self-employed or that you have any untaxed income, you may be charged interest and penalties.
Why not let me take this task off your hands from as little as £15 per month.
I can work out and advise you of your tax liabilities including the date any payments are due, plus file your Self Assessment Tax Return online with HMRC.

Keeping your accounts organised will ultimately save you time and allow you to run your business more effectively, as well as saving you money on your year-end returns. The time taken to carry out all other accounting processes will depend on how well organised the accounts are.
Knowing who owes you money, how much they owe, and when payment is due is a key requisite for a successful business. Lose control of this and your business will suffer.
Dealing with VAT Returns can be both confusing and time consuming. It can also be very stressful when there are deadlines to meet to submit returns to HMRC, with penalties incurred for late submission.
This is another burden that I can remove from you, allowing you to use the time saved to concentrate on your business.
If you wish, I can invoice your clients for you, ensuring this is done in a timely fashion and resulting in you being paid quicker.
Management reports can be produced as desired for your business, including snapshots that let you know exactly where the business is financially at any given point. This saves you a great deal of time and allows you to make informed decisions.
I charge a FIXED PRICE for my services, not by the hour, making it clear up-front how much you will pay. There are no hidden extras. With small overheads to manage, I offer a quality, professional service at a very competitive price.
