Four Elms Bookkeeping offers a professional accounting and bookkeeping service to the Yeovil, Sherborne, South Somerset and West Dorset area and beyond.




What we do

Every business in the UK is required by law to "keep books". This means it must record its sales, purchases and expenses and then retain these records for up to six years after the end of the tax year. Records may be kept in a computer system or manually but the same legal requirements apply. These records are required in order to complete income tax, corporation tax and VAT returns, but they can benefit the business owner too by providing insights into the financial performance of the business. Four Elms Bookkeeping provides a professional bookkeeping service which ensures that your books meet all the legal requirements and frees up your time to concentrate on the core activities of your business and less time on administration. Our competitive rates also mean that you will not be out of pocket.
