Here's a little of what our clients think about us
"Running many projects, across multiple locations, with, at times, up to to 100 contractors is tricky enough, but then translating that through the books was a nightmare. And we knew extras money was being left on the table because we didn't have time to dig into the details of each project.
With Sarah and Lindsey doing our bookkeeping, VAT & CIS submissions, weekly payments of sub contractors, and all admin tasks including forms for new projects, invoicing clients and ensuring payments are received, we're no longer getting fined for late HMRC submissions, and they're also helping us increase billing from project extras.
They're doing a fantastic job and we couldn't recommend them highly enough."
Ray Taylor, Director, Creative Build Solutions
"Business Buddies has been helping me for the past seven years; they initially created stationery templates for my business as well as producing quotes and invoices and managing my monthly accounts, this has allowed me more time to take on more work and grow my business which has resulted in me taking on two contractors so that I can manage the extra work load!
As my business grew, the more I could rely on Business Buddies, they are always available to offer advice and help with queries, they chase outstanding payments to improve my cash flow and deal with general queries from my customers. They helped my business become VAT registered and now manage my dealings with HMRC with regards to VAT and CIS submissions.
I was nervous about handing over such an important part of my business when they started managing my accounts, but Sarah and Lindsey made sure I was always informed of what they were doing and took the time to build up a level of trust - I have never looked back, it has taken a huge weight off my shoulders and allowed me to focus on gaining more work, without them, my business wouldn’t be the size it is today".
Jay Wright, Owner, J.Wright Electrical
"We really can't sing enough praise for this company - Business Buddies have seriously changed our work life for the better, meaning we can focus on running the business rather than stressing out over receipts and spreadsheets!
At first I was a bit concerned about spending the money on this service, but to be honest, it is more than worth it for the lack of stress and the fact it's a job done better than I could manage. Thanks so much Lindsey and Sarah."
Marie Behanna, Owner, Studio 41 Fitness
"I was referred to Business Buddies by an electrician because I was struggling to keep on top of my paperwork. They initially helped me with my accounts, VAT and CIS submissions, and continue to provide me with updates on a weekly basis. This allows me to spend less time in the office and more time at project sites and with my clients.
"The process is easy, I just scan my receipts with my phone and email them directly to the girls, they update my accounts and store all paperwork on Box.net (an online file sharing website). This has turned me into a paperless business and means I can access my documents online using my phone or iPad.
"We make sure we meet on a regular basis because I am always thinking of new ways for them to help me, whether it’s setting up policy documents, organising my CIS contracts, creating and sending invoices or producing project performance reports to inform future quotes, they always have fresh ideas to improve my business processes".
Paul Woodward, Owner, Digey Ltd
"Business Buddies has now helped me and my business partner advertise our business, create an eye catching and easy to use website for clients and have most importantly helped improve the productivity of our business by assisting with a number of key areas of our business administration.
"Sarah and Lindsey were so professional and made sure they really understood our circumstances and our aims, so they could give not only sound marketing and administration support, but also advice that made sense for us. Sarah and Lindsey went the extra mile and helped at every stage of the process. Two business partners who really compliment each other well. I look forward to working together again in the future".
Paul McFarlane, Partner, M&S Financial Solutions
"Before finding Business Buddies life was far more stressful. I found myself working well into the evenings typing out quotes and filling out accounts spreadsheets, and meeting the deadline for the VAT quarter was always a panic!
Lindsey and Sarah have now lifted a weight from my shoulders; whether it’s typing up and sending off quotes or general bookkeeping, they have freed up so much time I can now concentrate on doing my job (or relax at the end of a day!).
They are always friendly, approachable and professional, and brimming with ideas to help my business run more efficiently or bring in more work. I can honestly say I really couldn’t do without them.
Thank you Business Buddies!"
Adam, Director, ACML Plumbing and Heating
"Amazing amazing amazing! Started quickbooks to process self assessment, got myself very confused and Lindsey was so responsive with replies on her email, set up an appointment and demonstrated how to perform the tasks I was lost in doing myself. Would absolutely use again and would recommend to anyone who needs help with their quickbooks account."

"We're a small, but busy, property services company, and it seemed as we got busier we were spending more time managing paperwork, sending quotes, chasing customers and managing our tax submissions. Lindsey and Sarah have made that pain go away. They do our bookkeeping and accounting, manage our VAT & CIS submissions, and now even manage customer invoicing and the chasing of payments on our behalf. We're now able to get projects finished sooner and so the business is doing better financially than ever (and we're far less stressed). It's a bonus they're also a pleasure to work with - I couldn't recommend them highly enough"
