Welcome to

Where the

Bookkeeping & Administration







About Blossom & Achieve...


Blossom and Achieve was founded in 2013

and is based in Berkshire, UK.


I provide bookkeeping and administration services

specifically tailored to meet all your business needs.

 

After 20+ years experience

of working in the finance trade for others,

I wanted to be able to provide these services

my way and in my style, 

and Blossom and Achieve was formed.

  

As a business I have gained

a credible reputation for my

quality of work,

constant reliablity,

excellent customer service.



***********************


The name Blossom & Achieve

was created by me wanting to use

the B from Bookkeeping and the A from Administration

for words that describe

what I aim to help my clients do

and "Blossom & Achieve" was formed.


From this then came my mission statement

"Helping Your Business Blossom"



***********************


Blossom & Achieve

is much more than just

Bookkeeping & Administration.


I don't just do the numbers.


I make a point of

building a strong & solid relationship with every client,

& aim to understand exactly how their business operates in all areas.


This means my clients do not struggle in silence.


My friendly & approachable manner

makes clients feel comfortable & confident to contact me

to explain anything they don't understand

and to ask advise on business decisions they are making.


I make sure that I keep in touch with all clients

on a regular basis by phone, email or in person.


By doing this my clients are reassured

that I'm there for them

throughout the whole year

& not just at the tax return or accounts filing deadline.


 

What services can Blossom & Achieve provide...
