I am Debbie Roe and I am a BA (Hons) graduate in Retail Marketing, with twelve years experience in Human Resources for a major multinational company and six and a half years experience running my own small business in the Yorkshire Dales.  During this time, amongst other things, I managed my own bookkeeping.


After selling the business in 2007 I worked part-time as a bookkeeper and office manager for a small local business whilst I formalised my experience and studied for bookkeeping qualifications through the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers (ICB).  In 2011 I became an Associate Member of the ICB and launched my freelance bookkeeping business.  Since then my portfolio has increased to provide bookkeeping, payroll and self assessment tax return services to a wide range of businesses, from small sole traders to larger limited companies.  In 2014 I became a full Member of the ICB.

My current client portfolio includes a selection of tearooms, bed and breakfast businesses, public houses, a rental property business, two high street shops, a photography studio, abattoir and a broad range of small self-employed sole traders.

I use Sage, Xero and VT Transaction+ bookkeeping software, Moneysoft Payroll Manager and Sage payroll software, and Andica Self Assessment and Partnership software, and have working experience of other packages.

Beck Cottage Ltd holds a practice license with the ICB (license number 11256) and has full professional indemnity insurance.
