See What Others Are Saying

I can highly recommend Helen Preece of The Financial Management Centre. Before I found Helen, I had zero business and accounts knowledge! Helen assisted me to learn all about Quickbooks and how to file my VAT and many other aspects of book-keeping and our business accounts. She is extremely patient and can explain things in an easy manner and she didn't once make me feel embarrassed for my lack of knowledge during our sessions. I now have a very good understand of how to do the majority of our book-keeping unaided but still book Helen to come in once a quarter to come and ensure I am doing everything right and to help me with any further queries I have. Thank you Helen.

Helen has helped enormously with my in house bookkeeping for Independent Property Inspections both through advice and the practical application of a detailed spreadsheet designed to make reporting more accessible and tax returns a little simpler. Highly recommend to any business type but in particular start-up businesses who need guiding in the right direction.

— Debbie Mann – Director, IPI Property Management Ltd & Manager for The Mumpreneurs Networking Club

I established my own business in 2006 and as the business expanded I decided to engage the assistance of Helen. I have not had to worry about the accounting since! I can thoroughly recommend Helen to anyone who requires guidance and assistance in any small business situation - from a start-up to and establishment business. Helen is knowledgeable, organised and highly efficient.
