Having completed a BTEC National Diploma in Business & Finance, I always knew I wanted to work in the finance industry. My background is in fleet administration, car finance, logistics, and the construction industry.
After the birth of my daughters in 2002, I was made redundant from my full-time job and saw it as an opportunity to further my education and improve my knowledge.
I attended Coleg Gwent from 2003, completing the Association Of Accounting Technicians professional qualification and graduating in 2006 from Caerleon University.
I became part of a small, family-run business in construction, then went on to work as office manager for a large construction company in Cardiff.
Three years in a large construction company gave me the confidence and experience to venture out on my own, which fitted around my family commitments.
Becoming the proprietor of Balanced Up in 2010 was an opportunity to help other business owners with their administration and accounting needs.
At Balanced Up, we enjoy helping business owners organise their paperwork and put accounting procedures in place so that they can concentrate on their business models.
Ensuring the business is up to date with HMRC legislation and that submission deadlines are met can make all the difference in getting that work-life balance.
Where some people avoid paperwork, we at Balanced Up thrive on it. We are willing to help organise any business which is struggling to keep up to date with filing, reporting and recovering outstanding sales invoices.
Our services can be used on an ad hoc basis or we offer an ongoing monthly commitment to keep you up to date with VAT, payroll and CIS submissions.
Working closely with several accountants in South Wales, your company accounts will be ready for submission in advance – so you know your liabilities well before the January 31st deadline.
