If you want to break free from all the paperwork but do not need or cannot afford even part-time staff, I can help you.
I understand the needs of small businesses and entrepreneurs and especially the importance of flexibility.
You may only need my services once a year at a key time in your financial cycle, or perhaps you just need support for 10 hours a month.
Whatever the situation, budget or business set-up, I can make it work.
