Cecile Hunt MAAT - Guiding Businesses to Success

From Start-ups to Limited Companies

How would you like to:

  • Develop and grow your business
  • Get simple systems in place to legally record your finances?
  • Get a better understanding of why you have to do all those backroom jobs that come with running your own business?
  • Understand your financial records - remember it is your business - you are legally accountable for it
  • Have, generate and understand, management records - these are important to making your business a success.

Do you know how to read your balance sheet, profit and loss and cash flow statements? Do you understand how they work in conjunction with one another? This is one big step in making your business a success and easy to achieve.

It is your business, not mine; you can do the things you have always done and get the results you have always got - or - use my professional knowledge and qualifications, from many years in practice, to work towards, and get, a less stressful business life plus the chance to grow your business - if that is your aim.

Unfortunately running a business comes with baggage that most business owners would rather do without. Being more efficient in how you run your business; and having a better understanding of how to manage that baggage makes a smoother road to success and less stress.

In addition to being qualified, licensed and insured to provide a wide range of accountancy services I provide business mentoring, advice and support services.

Learn how to work on your business not just in it. If you want to take the 'ouch' out of running your business call me to find out more.

It is your business, look after it and it will reward you.

Julie-Ann Amos
Granny's Memoirs

I produce beautiful, inexpensive books in paperback or hardback, in quantities as low as 5 copies. I am a professional author (google me!) so I can edit your work as part of the process. The quality is similar to anything you would buy in a bookshop, and the prices sensible.

Most are family stories and autobiographies, many are just memories for passing down to children and grandchildren. Past clients have requested Family Histories, Life Stories, Diaries and Journals, Travelogues, Poetry Collections, Collections of Stories and Fiction books.

However, I am open to anything you would like to see in book format. Do call or email me for a sample book on how to prepare your family history or autobiography. I will then send you a free sample book, so you can see exactly what your end product would look like.
