Business Bookkeeping

If you’re spending too much time on bookkeeping and not enough time with your customers, we can help. Our team of bookkeeper in french will handle all your business bookkeeping, leaving you free to manage other aspects of your business.

Bookkeeping isn’t something that small, medium or any sized business often embraces with enthusiasm. So why not save the stress and let Seagrave French take it off your hands? You can then stay focused on what you’re passionate about your business.

We can take care of invoices, bank statements, prepare your management accounts, VAT returns, end of year accounts and estimated tax liabilities on an ongoing basis so there aren’t any surprises. We can cover it all for you.

Your records will be organised and kept neatly filed, making any possible VAT inspections easy to manage.

We also offer the Seagrave French ‘Bookkeeping Health Check’ to new and existing clients. We’ll review your bookkeeping systems and suggest any changes that will save you time and money while ensuring that you’re compliant. We’ll see that information recorded is accurate and reliable while also ensuring there are no VAT errors. We’ll also help you produce more relevant management information and measures that will prove invaluable in managing your business. A bookkeeper in French will take care of the accounting and financial aspects of a company and contribute to the development of effective systems for monitoring expenses, inventories, and sales.

If required, we can also deliver specific or tailored training to upskill bookkeeping staff.

Bookkeeping FAQs

What is Bookkeeping?

Bookkeeping is the systematic recording of a company’s financial transaction. It involves keeping records of all financial transactions and summarising the information so it can be used for preparing accounting reports and making business decisions. Please visit our blog to get more information about bookkeeper in French.

Why should I get a Bookkeeper?

The law mandates all companies and self-employed to keep accurate and up-to-date records of their financial transactions. A bookkeeper will help you record every financial transaction and keep track of every penny you are earning and spending. Working with a bookkeeper in French will give you a crystal-clear picture of your business’s financial health, assist you in making informed decisions, and ultimately help you run your business more efficiently.

What’s involved in bookkeeping?

Bookkeeping is managing the day-to-day finances of a business. It includes:

  • Making payments (e.g. bills)

  • Chasing payments from clients and customers

  • Ensuring your business pays the right amount of tax

  • Claiming back tax for your business (e.g. expenses)

  • Managing payroll to pay your staff and HMRC correctly

Bookkeeping tracks payments in and out of the business using three financial records:

Cashbook – this records your cash flow (everything moving in and out of your business’s account)

Sales invoice – this records what you’ve sold, including both paid and unpaid invoices.

Purchase invoice – this records what you’ve bought (including services) and how you’ve paid for each purchase.  

These are usually the minimum records (‘books’) you’ll keep – there will probably be more. Keeping accurate books is important for financial reporting, and vital if your business faces an audit. 

Working with a trained bookkeeper in french can help a firm guarantee that its finances are managed professionally and transparently.

What’s the difference between bookkeeping and accounting?

Bookkeeping and accounting are often confused. In fact, bookkeeping is a small but vital part of the overall accounting function. Bookkeeping is the process of recording and reporting financial information, while accounting is the process of using such data to establish the business’s financial position and make decisions about how the finances are managed.

In short:

Bookkeeping = the recording and reporting of financial information

Accounting = analysing the financial information and creating a financial strategy



In order to work effectively, the bookkeeper in French must have an in-depth knowledge of accounting and financial principles.

Can Bookkeeping Help Me Save More Money and Time?

Yes, bookkeeping can help you save more money and time, especially if:

  • You are finding it hard to stay on top of your business finances
  • You are unable to track where your money is going or how you are spending it
  • You are losing receipts and bills; making it impossible to keep your records up-to-date
  • Your business is not working as planned, and you are about giving up on it
  • You don’t have time for your family and friends because you are busy with your business paperwork
  • You are always running out of money and struggle to pay your staff and tax bills
  • You are losing suppliers because you forget to pay them
  • You have several unpaid invoices and always forget to follow up on your customers for payment.

If any of the above scenarios describe your situation, you need a bookkeeper to help you put things back in order. We’ll help you keep track of your finances, reduce your overhead cost, improve your business cash flow, and ensure your business is running profitably. Also, our bookkeeper in French will take charge of your paperwork so you can spend more time with your loved ones.
