Welcome to AllCents Bookkeeping
My name is Jackie Anthony and I set up AllCents to provide financial game changing services to businesses committed to growth. We pride ourselves in making a real impact on our customers businesses and give them the insight they need to become even more successful. Examples include:
A start-up Virtual Reality company was struggling with their collections and, within a very short space of time, we collected over $50k in overdue invoices - reducing their DSOs from 64 days to 27 days in the space of 3 months.
Integrated all systems for a growing tutoring company on the West Coast, linking their POS, Time Recording and Payroll systems to their accounting software to give complete visibility on their financials, 24 * 7 with any device connected to the internet. In 2018, we are implementing forecasting in support of ambitious growth plans.
For a restaurant group, we delivered deep financial analysis with benchmarking to identify inadequacies in their business. The initial focus lay with their COGS and Prime costs, which identified a myriad of problems that are being addressed, but additionally undertook a review of their merchant service costs and payroll expenses resulting in a potential $10,000 cost savings that will be enjoyed in 2018!
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 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 took 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.
AllCents is in the process of expanding and brining onboard more like minded people who are continually challenging themselves to be much, much more than just your bookkeeper.
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.
