At Redwood Clarke we’ve been helping high-growth businesses since 2008. Expertly addressing the bookkeeping & accountancy challenges that keep owners and directors awake at night, with accuracy, confidence and trust.
With over 40 years of combined experience in accountancy behind them, Directors Kim Redwood-Lee and Anne Clarke have forged a strong team of highly skilled staff, all AAT qualified. This team is based at Redwood Clarke’s Billericay practice, but also works on-site at client offices. With each bookkeeper putting their wealth of expertise to great use, serving a wide range of small to medium sized business clients across Essex, Hertfordshire and London.
Our practice was founded by Kim Redwood-Lee in 2008. With more than 26 years’ experience in bookkeeping and accountancy for high-profile businesses Kim decided to begin working for herself. Since then she’s built an enviable reputation across Essex, London and Hertfordshire. Recognised as a capable and astute business owner, driven to deliver an exemplary service to her clients.
Kim is regularly involved in charity fund raising events, including scaling Ben Nevis and Scaffel Pike and completing a 50K Sahara Desert trek to raise over £6000 for Little Havens Hospice.
Director Anne joined Kim back in 2011, completing the Redwood-Clarke leadership team. As firm friends, both Anne and Kim share the same passion for bookkeeping and a fastidious approach to client service. Anne is a true expert in the bookkeeping field, with over 15 years’ experience, and nothing pleases her more than examining a business challenge and finding a workable solution.
Anne is actively involved in community projects such as The Billericay Community Cinema.
Bookkeeper Danielle joined the practice in 2012. Her enviable experience gained in investment banking made her a perfect addition to the team. Company income, expenditure, payroll and tax requirements are all her domain, and she’s expert at using a variety of accounting software packages to suit her growing client portfolio.
Bookkeeper Laura joined the practice in 2013. With a background in investment banking and client service Laura has brought many valuable skills to the team. She uses a variety of software packages to work with a growing portfolio of clients. Putting her expertise to great across payroll, credit control and annual return submissions, as well as total bookkeeping rebuild to help clients catch up on errors.
How we work
As your personal bookkeeping and accountancy department, we provide everything you need to drive performance, growth and profit. Minus the long-term commitment and expense of running an in-house department. Or, the worry and insecurity of working with a one-man-band freelance bookkeeper.
Starting with us couldn’t be easier. We offer a free review and bookkeeping health check to assess the status of your accounts, either at our office or yours. Before providing simple recommendations to ensure that your accounts support you in your business.
With our completely transparent billing system, you’ll feel confident that you’re only paying for the work we do for you, no matter what happens. Our time spent serving you is documented to the exact minute.
Our AAT bookkeepers will work on your books whereever it best suits you. Either off-site in the Redwood Clarke office, or on-site at your own.
We offer an hourly rate or a retainer fee with flexible packages tailored to suit your business.
At Redwood Clarke we partner with a handful of trusted and proven Associate Accountants, IFA’s, Mortgage Brokers, Insolvency Practitioners, and Insurance Companies to ensure that you get the service that best meets your needs. This includes specialists in mergers and acquisitions, tax advice and debt management.
