You take care of the kids;
We’ll take care of the quids!

You set up your childcare business because of your love of children and not your love of numbers! We are a friendly, approachable local chartered accountancy practice specialising in the child care sector. You have a passion for providing the very best service to the children in your care and we have a passion for understanding the financial issues that you face on a day basis and providing you with the tools, advice and support that you need to overcome them.

What do we do?

We don’t expect you to be financial experts, just as you wouldn’t expect us to be able to entertain a room of three year olds!
We are a local firm of chartered accountants, based on the Wirral, providing an affordable, high quality tax and accounting solution to the childcare sector. We understand that running a childcare business is extremely time consuming and keeping on top of the finances may have to be pushed back to the evenings, weekends or even worse may not be done at all. Let us take some of the strain from you. We can help you to meet all your statutory and legal financial requirements, free up your time, and provide you with meaningful up to date management information that can help you run and grow your business.
We will let you focus on what you are good at and we will help you to take care of the financial side of things for a monthly fixed fee. There will be no surprise invoices or large annual bill just one affordable monthly payment.


We offer a range of services to our clients and you are able to select which ones you take; all services, one service or anything in between! We are completely flexible and will put together a package to suit your needs and budget.

Statutory and Legal Requirements

There are some things that just have to be done. They often don’t seem to provide much added value to your childcare business, but they can be daunting and you may face penalties if they are not prepared accurately and on time.

We can therefore take the strain away from you and provide:

› Year end statutory accounts
› Year end personal and company tax returns
› Payroll services including auto enrolment
› Dealing with HMRC on your behalf

Added Value Services

This is where our expertise kicks in and we can really help you to understand and grow your business.

› Management Information and Reporting

It is vital that you know at any point in time how your business is doing. Without this knowledge you can’t plan, grow or take corrective action if required. Making use of our services will keep your financial records up to date and enable you to see how your business is performing.

We’ve partnered with Intuit QuickBooks Online and we offer this easy to use cloud based software as part of our service. We can help you with setting your records up and transferring any balances and transactions if necessary. We can provide training and help you to keep your financial records accurate and up to date. If you don’t have the time for bookkeeping, or you would simply like to hand over this task to someone else then we can assist.

QuickBooks is accessible anywhere, anytime giving you real time control and visibility over your financial position. You can view, update and manage your records and accounts at any time from a PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone.

If you don’t wish to use QuickBooks, that’s not a problem, we can accommodate any system that you use to provide bookkeeping and regular management reporting services as required.

We can keep you up to date with how your business has performed in the past but we can also help you to look forward and plan.

› Planning for the Future

A profitable and successful business needs to monitor its performance and plan for the future. We can help you to prepare budgets, forecasts and business plans which will enable you to grow a profitable well managed childcare business.
