Basildon bookkeeping

Local bookkeepers

Business owners of any size should keep careful financial records to avoid costly tax mistakes and gauge the company’s progress.

Depending on the size and type of your business, the services you require will differ. A small business might only need basic bookkeeping while a larger enterprise would need something more comprehensive. In any case, what you’ll need is an experienced full time bookkeeper familiar with your specific situation.

With so many bookkeeping and accounting firms in Basildon, it may be difficult to find the one that suits you best. However, PBATS (Practical Bookkeeping Accounting & Taxation Services) is a reliable option that has been providing quality services at an affordable price for years.

At our bookkeeping firm, we believe that being flexible and able to cater our services specifically to any type of operation is important. Whether you own a small business or a big enterprise, we will be able to assist you.

Data entry

Many businesses assume that they can handle data entry in-house, but it’s actually more efficient–and cost effective–to outsource it to a bookkeeping company using industry-leading accounting software. Bookkeepers are professionals when it comes to data entry and can do the work much faster than someone without training.

Bank reconciliation

At PBATS, we want to help you ensure the accuracy of your financial records by reconciling your statements for you! This simply means comparing your personal records with the transactions on your bank statement. We recommend doing this monthly (or more frequently if needed).

Monthly reports

Each month, you will receive a report on your financial activity that details your profits and losses. Having this information will allow you to make more informed business decisions down the road.

Managing invoices

Any business’s success depends on managing invoices and expenses carefully. PBATS not only helps you stay organised, but our experts also offer guidance on how to streamline your invoicing and expense management processes for even better results.


We appreciate how challenging and time-consuming payroll can be for employers. To lighten your load, we offer to do the work for you by taking care of payroll calculations, tax deductions and issuing payslips. This way, you’ll have more time to focus on other pressing matters within your business.


At our company, we pride ourselves in being able to offer a wide range of taxation services. This includes completing a self-assessment tax return, corporation tax information, and submitting VAT returns. In addition, we have an excellent team of experts who are always keeping updated with the current changes in tax law so that you’re only receiving accurate information from us.
