Here's what my clients have to say:
"In preparation for Making Tax Digital we, at TAGTax Limited, wanted to make sure we were embracing the digital era and taking advantage of the ability to streamline our records across the business, which is a benefit of Xero. We wanted to leave behind the frustrations of stand alone systems and tap into the ability to forecast cash flow in real time, use direct bank feeds for reconciliations, submit VAT returns directly and have the ability to manage our business at any time, in any place from anywhere.
Julia was very efficient in working remotely with the team to ensure that on boarding to Xero was successfully achieved, she was always at the end of the phone or email in response to all of our queries. Our external bookkeeper was effectively trained in using Xero, so much so that we have taken her on full time. Some of the successes of this ledger conversion have included the simplification of our invoicing process and we can now see a snapshot of the business’s activity daily from the Dashboard which helps to support our decision making. We are very happy with the results and would recommend Julia to help other businesses to convert to Xero."

"From our initial meeting I knew Julia would be key into taking my business to the next level. I was in a place where I desperately needed key intelligence within the sector to help me build my business.
Julia’s vast experience helped me take control of my finances and immediately made me feel like a weight was lifted off my shoulders. That piece of mind is invaluable. Also her help with pointing me in the right directions for to gain further key expert advice from specific segments of business like the Aston growth program was the reassurance I needed to remind myself - I can do this."

"All looks good now since I have been working with Julia and her wider network over the past few months. We have a much better idea of what the financial situation is and what needs to happen.
We have an experienced bookkeeping service to deal with day to day finance duties and successful credit control activity to bring in overdue revenue. My team have been challenged about their spending and providing supporting documents to assist in VAT Return submissions. Our ledger is now restructured and tidied to automate, share data and stop duplication of effort
Regular reporting and forecasting helped the decision making process when we needed to secure alternate ways of financing to help cash flow."
Phil Hynes, Director - HeadTech Solutions
Julia has often demonstrated a desire to go "above and beyond" on behalf of our business. Linking with the Chamber of Commerce, potential funding opportunities and giving guidance on suppliers through her network - printers and vehicle leasing partners, for example.
It is still early days for Stop Digging Limited, but it is clear that Julia shares our enthusiasm and desire to grow our company. I would not hesitate in recommending Julia Leask to other business proprietors. "
