Experienced, Multi Award Winning, Bookkeepers
Cashtrak was established in 2006 by Carol Webb Fellow of the ICB (Institute of Certified Bookkeepers). Carol realised the bookkeeping industry was rigid and wanted clients to have the flexibility of the services that they needed, not the services the bookkeepers wanted them to have when not all services were utilised. So, Carol saw a gap in the market for flexible bookkeeping, providing as little or as much bookkeeping as the client wanted and hasn’t looked back since!
We have come a long way since then and we employ a number of staff now 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 we are the first to win a LUCA for best bookkeeping practice twice!
We have experiences of many industries: pubs;beauticians, hairdressers, builders, suppliers, personal trainers, consultants, brewers, renovators, software programmers, doctors, vets, restaurants, event planners, safety experts and more. Our experience is with individuals, sole traders, charities, SMEs, limited companies and a whole lot more. We have a close relationship with Xero (our favoured bookkeeping software) and are usually on their BETA testing meaning our clients get the new features first!
We pride ourselves in having top class customer service, being available to our clients whenever they need us and work very closely to fit in as part of their team rather than expecting the client to fit in with us, we see ourselves as an extension of our client's business.
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 the valuable knowledge often resulting in cost or time saving.
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.
Carol Webb, FICB PM Dip, AATQB, ACIPP
Behind every efficient business is an efficient operator and in this case it's Cashtrak's founder and owner, Carol Webb.
When Carol launched Cashtrak some years ago, to meet the specific needs of sole traders and SME's, she brought with her a vast range of hands-on experience in a variety of different industry sectors from pensions to engineering, manufacturing to importing. She also worked as Finance Manager for a venture capital sponsored, software development company. She is, as she cheerfully admits, positively obsessive compulsive when it comes to detail but adds, on the good side, she's never come across a mess she can't sort.
Her experience with 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.
As one grateful client put it
"In no time at all Carol had straightened out the embarrassing mess I called my books and bossed me and the business into shape – I simply can't thank her enough"
Carol is also the Chair of the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers Bucks and Oxfordshire groups.
