Experienced, Multi Award Winning Bookkeepers
Cashtrak was established in 2006 by Carol Webb, Fellow of the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers (what is a Fellowship? Click here.) Realising the bookkeeping industry was rigid and inflexible, Carol wanted clients to have the choice of the services that they wanted. So, Carol saw a gap in the market for flexible bookkeeping, providing services the client could 'pick n mix' and hasn’t looked back since!
We have come a long way since then and we now employ a number of staff who work seamlessly to ensure our clients receive a better service than anywhere else. Along the way we have picked up a lot of awards including two ICB LUCAS (the Oscars of the bookkeeping world!) and were the first to win a LUCA for best bookkeeping practice twice! More on our awards here.
"I would recommend Cashtrak to anyone, they have a minefield of knowledge in business"
Did you know that you don't have to have any qualifications to be a bookkeeper? We think this is shocking! All of our bookkeepers are qualified with the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers. As a member of the ICB we have to have to not only take qualifications but undertake CPD (Continual Professional Development) as well as having practice insurance.
Our staff are trained to the highest possible standard, in an industry where change is constant, we keep up-to-date with the latest industry standards, regulations and nice to haves to ensure we pass on the valuable knowledge resulting in cost and/ or time saving for our clients.
So, you can rest assured that you are in safe, knowledgeable hands.
First Rate Service
We pride ourselves in providing top class customer service, we work closely with our clients to gain an in depth understanding of their business so we are able to provide the best possible service. We see ourselves as an extension of our client's business and are always available for guidance whether this be bookkeeping or business.
We can cover any industry and have a vast range of experiences in many industries: pubs; beauticians; hairdressers, builders, suppliers, personal trainers, consultants, brewers, renovators, software programmers, doctors, vets, restaurants, event planners, safety experts and more.
Our vast experience ranges across all areas of business: individuals; sole traders; charities; SMEs; limited companies and a whole lot more.
Don't take our word for it though! Have a look at our testimonial page by clicking on this link. Or check out our reviews on Google.

Joined Cashtrak: established it in 2006!
Brief career history: a range of different sizes of business gives her a broad insight into some of the unique challenges and problems faced by small companies. As a Certified Bookkeeper, authorised to work in public practice by the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers, a Sage Accountants club member and Xero Certified Advisor, Carol decided she'd be ideally placed to offer a service dealing, not only with the all the day to day practicalities, but also offering an advisory and systems planning services, enabling SME's to optimise their opportunities without huge expenditure.

Dislikes: too many food producers spice food up too much, what happened to a can of beef & veg soup being just that?!
Which 3 people (alive or dead) would you like to have dinner with? My maternal grandfather, Grampy Hearn, I was only 6 when he died and I never got to know him properly.

And Cliff Richard, I have been a fan for as long as I can remember and was always too late for getting tickets for concerts having only managed to see him a few times.
