We provide full Book-keeping services, from record keeping, Vat Returns, Payroll and Paye to Credit Controlling and Cashflow Reports.

Our Management Accountancy team provide monthly or quarterly Financial Reports where comparison with budgets and/or departmental reporting is often required.

Our experience can hone your Business Strategy and support in the development of a business plan. Our service can include the provision of budgets and projections, helping you focus on the strategic elements of your enterprise.

We have the flexibility to work locally with your team or remotely at our own premises. We have a track record that brings tailored solutions and procedures to any organisation, allowing us to work as effectively as possible.

Our initial introduction to any potential client is informal and predominantly focused on the systems/software/team currently in place and establish if this provides the information required by the owner/manager to operate their business with minimum time spent on administration.

This initial meeting ensures we can build an effective working relationship – working on financial accounts is a role of trust and whilst accuracy and consistency is vital, personality and approachability are also key components.

Our experience has demonstrated that our singular focus on your financial records allows us to deliver a more efficient service as we are not prone to distractions.

Quality control underpins everything we do.

Jennifer Dunseath, Proprietor

Jennifer is qualified by experience, with 30 years in the trade. After completing her A levels she left school at 16 and started working as an Office Junior and found she had a knack for figures, logic and the ability to explain financial reports to others in plain english. She progressed rapidly through the accountants departments of several small industries before spending a few years analysing statistics for the Northern Ireland Law Society.

In 1993 she moved to Edinburgh and into the role of Finance Manager for a few SME’s. Along the way she qualified as a Scottish Law Accountant, before going self employed in 1999. This new business offered Accountancy support for various businesses, some still satisfied clients of The Number House. Her hard work and dedication was sought after and her success evolved into The Number House in 2003 where the support of a loyal team of 13 staff has built it into a flourishing business.

After the birth of her daughter Jennifer returned to N Ireland and works remotely for clients in Edinburgh, London and Belfast.

Prior to the birth of her daughter Jen’s passions were motorbikes and yacht racing. She is hoping to return to both if she ever find the time!
