Ann Barkas – Next Level Business Strategist.

I work with business owners to put strategies in place to enable them to get to the next level without worries of not being able to cope if something goes wrong.  Also, how to ensure the business runs smoothly if they are not there.

My title of “Next Level Business Strategist” sounds pretty boring but believe me I can say working with me is anything but boring. Fun is what we have whilst getting some serious work completed.

We don’t sit around a board table. We will meet in more relaxing spots that would serve gorgeous food and maybe afternoon tea. My mantra is “Let what you love be what you do”. Positive vibes only!

Call me on 07972 882 615 if you want to have some fun while conducting serious business. You can also contact me via

Kathryn Barnes – Bookkeeping counts.

As a child, my best subjects at school were Maths and English and so I either wanted to be a Journalist or an Accountant!

Needless to say I chose Accounting so I went to Teesside University and graduated in 1998 with a BA Hons Degree in Accounting and Finance and have been working in finance ever since.

I have been employed in many different industries from manufacturing to government funded training organisations and have done everything from basic manual job costing to the much more complicated preparation of management accounts and variance analysis!

Below are a list of bookkeeping services that I offer…

Self Assessments, System Optimisation, Training, VAT Returns, Bank Reconciliations, Basic Profit and Loss Statement (P & L) Preparation, Budgeting, Cash Flow, Credit Control, Recording Financial Information

If you are thinking of setting up your own business by all means give me a call, e-mail, tweet or message and I can give you some valuable advice, not just on the bookkeeping side of it!

Contact me on and see how I can help.
