At The Financial Management Centre on the Wirral, our mission to help your Birkenhead business organise its finances whilst affording you extra time to focus on running your core business activities instead.

We deliver accurate, reliable and trustworthy bookkeeping services that ensure you are compliant with your regulatory requirements and so that you understand financial opportunities and threats.


At The Financial Management Centre in Birkenhead, our bookkeeping specialists are familiar with a wide range of bookkeeping programmes such as Sage, QuickBooks, Xero and KashFlow.

We may also complete your books manually. This flexibility means you are not required to migrate to a new and unfamiliar bookkeeping system when you retain our services.

However, if you a new business and so you currently do not have any meaningful bookkeeping system currently in place, we shall gladly set you up with an electronic bookkeeping package as part of the initial setup when you first retain our services.


When you elect for us to complete your books for your Birkenhead business, we go much further than to simply ‘balance your books.’

All of our advisors have worked in the business financial management field for many years, so we will be able to advise you on the implications of financial performance data when we balance your books.

This means you gain a trusted business advisor as well as a bookkeeper. This helps your business avoid mistakes and focus on activities that are proven to yield the most profit for you.


Some of the services you receive include:

  • Ensuring your books are balanced
  • Invoicing and credit control
  • Debtor chasing
  • Management accounts
  • VAT return and tax return
  • Cash flow forecasting and business planning
  • Pension/autoenrollment set up


The truth is, to run a success business in Birkenhead you must be financially savvy. This means you must be able to pinpoint with laser sharp accuracy exactly where in your business you are making and losing money.

If you do not understand the business’s financial performance, you have little chances of staying in business for very long. Ensure you do not avoid the common fate where you go out of business because your cash flow becomes out of control.

To ensure you are not ‘walking blind’ when it comes to your business finances, contact The Financial Management Centre today on 0151 6680514. Alternatively, contact us through this website.

See What Others Are Saying

As a small charity, we don't have the budgets or in house expertise of some larger organisations. What we wanted was an organisation that we could partner with and trust to get our end of year accounts sorted and then start planning for the future. Tom worked closely with us, overcame some of our, less-than-polished, processes and enabled us to get the return done in time and at a price that was very reasonable. We'd definitely recommend The Financial Management Centre.

3 years ago, I referred one of my relatives, Janet, to Tom Cowley. Janet was returning to the Wirral from South Africa and required all her self-assessment and tax returns sorting out. Tom has continued to provide this service for Janet every year since. Her words to describe Tom are "brilliant, a top man who is well worth a great testimonial"! We are both happy to refer Tom Cowley. Well done!

We have been clients of the Wirral office of The Financial Management Centre for over three years. During this time we have been extremely impressed with the professionalism and ability of the Wirral office in working with our in house administration. Due to a forthcoming retirement we have decide to fully outsource our accounting and administration to the Wirral office and we look forward to a long and fruitful relationship.
