Welcome to AllCents Bookkeeping
My name is Jackie Anthony and I set up AllCents Bookkeeping to provide virtual bookkeeping services to Professional Services organizations whose main objective is to make a positive difference to their customers. Professional services companies have some unique challenges - with multiple clients and various different ways of billing, keeping track of income and expenses can be hard. You have to be flexible and your rates likely differ from one client to another. Depending on the type of contract you undertake, you may invoice for you time by project or on a retainer. Without careful financial management, it can be hard to keep track of the numbers.
Having worked in Professional Service organizations for over 20 years, I have experienced these challenges and know how to help you overcome them. At AllCents, we have a passion for numbers and an overarching objective to truly partner with all of our clients to give you constant access to your financial information, insights into the key financial analysis, so you understand what the numbers are trying to tell you, as well as helping you to prepare your financial plans and forecasts to achieve your growth plans.
I am a Xero Certified Advisor, a ProAdvisor for QuickBooks Online and a Hubdoc Certified Parter..
I graduated with a BA (Hons) in Accounting and was a qualified CIMA (Chartered Institute of Management Accountants) Accountant before moving into the world of Finance Consulting. From a bookkeeping perspective, my very first role was as bookkeeper for a local taxi firm (long, long before Uber!), I did my father's books for as long as I can remember and graduated to doing the accounts for my local wine bar in London for the paltry sum of a glass of Chardonnay a month!
From very early on, I recognized that just crunching the numbers did not help steer businesses on the right course. Decision makers need the right analysis, that they can rely on, to make effective decisions. I have many years of international business and marketing experience and, through those years, I've experienced the difference that can be made by presenting the facts in a readily understandable format and building solid plans and forecasts to track progress on meeting their goals.
I am taking a step out of the consulting world to take control of my future, working alongside like-minded businesses who share my drive and passion to grow and be the very best that we can - together. I love technology and it's amazing how much is out there today to automate data entry and processes. The beauty of that is, by using what we have today and watching out for what is coming down the line we automate as much of the processing as possible so we can focus on analyzing your results for your benefit instead of having you pay for wasted hours of us inputting your data.
We customize our services to meet YOUR specific needs - there is no 'one size fits all' approach at AllCents - with value based pricing and a fixed monthly fee so there's no surprises from one month to the next. Over and beyond that, our promise to you is that when we work together, we will be completely hands on, deliver on our promises and be just a phone call away - there's no 800 number here.
