Clear Accounting Solutions is me, Linda West, and I specialise in providing all accountancy services to small businesses in Shropshire.
My aim is to help you understand your business finances, which can often be intimidating if you run your own business.
I can do your bookkeeping, VAT, payroll and general accountancy – I offer straightforward, jargon free advice and I like to say I clear the clouds from your finances.
And I work flexibly on evenings and Saturdays so I can fit around your business routine.
I had many years’ experience working in accountancy practices before getting my Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) qualification.
When my son was born in 2004 I wanted to be there for him and do the school runs and not send him to a childminder after school.
However, I also wanted to continue the career that I had worked so hard on, so I started to work towards setting up my own company.
In 2009 when my son started school I decided it was time to go alone and set up my own practice and Clear Accounting Solutions was born.
It was a natural step for me as my dad had his own business and many of my family are self-employed.
Since then I have made it my mission to change people’s perception of accountants while building up my client base.
I want people to feel at ease with me, not be intimidated and scared that I’m about to start talking jargon!
Professional but informal is my style and I’m equally at home power dressing or in jeans while visiting a client at their workplace.
One of my clients is a magician who uses me to test out his tricks when I call on him to help with his accounts – once he sawed me in half!
So if you’re looking for a straightforward accountant who won’t blind you with science then contact me.
