Providing support to small businesses

A good Bookkeeper will work with you to put systems in place to ensure your books are in good order and you can obtain relevant and insightful information on your business finances in good time. This is where Practical Bookkeeping come in.

Practical Bookkeeping Services Ltd is run by Rebecca Wisbey, who is licensed and regulated by the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT). Rebecca has over 16 years experience in bookkeeping and accounts, you can take care of business and let us take care of the books!

Originally based in Rayleigh, Essex, we've recently moved into an office in Leigh-on-Sea. From here we provide services locally to clients in Rayleigh, Leigh-on-Sea, Southend-on-Sea and Benfleet, plus further afield with clients in Maldon, Witham, Dunmow, Colchester, London and beyond. So if you're based in one of those areas and are in need of a bookkeeper, get in touch!

Our services are not limited to those outlined (these are just a selection of our most popular) so contact us for an informal chat to discuss your individual needs.

If you're going to call in to see us, please do get in touch first, although we aim to have someone in the office Monday to Friday we wouldn't want you to waste a journey!
