Accounting & book-keeping for Start-ups and SME BUSINESSES

Let us take care of your book-keeping and accounting needs so that you can focus on building your business


Why choose PPX for your accounting and book-keeping?

Our holistic approach focuses exclusively on enabling SME businesses to achieve profitable growth.

We won't just get in touch at year end or when you have a tax question, we'll run daily cashbooks and bank recs, weekly reporting and monthly analysis, giving you the data to make decisions and the reassurance that your business is on track during the year.

The services we offer are modular in nature, so if you already have an accountant you're happy with, but need someone to cover your book-keeping, we can handle that. If the book-keeping is covered but you need a payroll service, we're on it.

Our fees are transparent too, so check out our pricing page to see what each service costs.


Our book-keeping services provide the full package.

We'll manage your supplier data, post purchase invoices to your accounts, allocate supplier payments, create payment schedules, reconcile supplier statements and all other aspects of Purchase Ledger management.

On the other side, we'll raise invoices, allocate payments received, maintain your cashbook and reconcile your bank account. We also have a dedicated credit controller and debt-collection solutions for when customers fall behind in their payments.

One of the key differences between PPX and many accounting firms is that we create automated processes to seamlessly manage your book-keeping. This enables us to work more efficiently and pass these savings on to our clients.



This is where it all comes together. Once the book-keeping is done and the documents have been processed, our Management Accounts team spring into action to evaluate the performance of the business.

We'll compare the performance of the business against predetermined comparatives, assess the economic viability and then conduct variance analysis to give you conclusions and actions, not just a bunch of numbers on a page.

This is the element of our service which sets us apart, so check out our testimonials page to see what people have said about it.

In addition to monthly analysis, we also provide bespoke reporting on a weekly or monthly basis.

And of course we wrap everything up at year end, file your accounts and complete your tax return.


Employees' pay is a critical aspect of any business, and ensuring accuracy and efficiency is paramount.

Our payroll staff are Xero certified and have extensive experience of processing payroll for large companies in diverse circumstances, including legacy contracts, attachments of earnings, pension contributions and sales commissions.

The modular nature of our services means that even if you already have your book-keeping and accounting covered elsewhere, we can manage your payroll.

Let us alleviate the complexities of payroll management, allowing you to focus on your core operations with confidence.





We don't just file your year end accounts and complete your tax return.

Our 'Wraparound' service goes further than this and we'll become an extension of your business. Every month we'll evaluate the performance of your business, assess your economic viability and ensure compliance.

We will then provide accurate monthly data to enable you to develop your own financial knowledge and apply this in your business.

If you already have an accountant you know and trust, we can work alongside them and bolster their service with deeper analysis and enhanced reporting.

A wealth of relevant experience

Although we are accountants, our background is in business, not just textbooks. We have Director-level experience of running businesses in many industries, including:


  • Pharmaceutical
  • Travel & Tourism
  • Manufacturing
  • Engineering
  • Construction
  • Logistics
  • Financial Services


This real-world experience means that, unlike many accounting firms, we have a solid understanding of the day-to-day pressure of running a business and can support our clients with practical and meaningful solutions.

We work with our clients towards an end goal, whether that's selling up and retiring a few years from now, developing your business to a point where you can bring your finance management in-house or just to create a business that provides a lifestyle for you and your family. All of these can be achieved with our 'Four Points of Control' methodology and PPX will work with you to understand your business and your goals.

If you expect more from your accountant than just year-end accounts and tax, book a call now and let's get started.

Take control & Thrive


"PPX excels in engaging with the business at all levels to map out its current processes and control, identifying gaps and risks, often in areas the client is not aware of.

They expertly produce tailored report packs, providing engaging commentary back to the business for all finance and non-finance individuals to understand."

"We've been lucky enough to have Adrian and his team look after our Finances for over a year now. Our partnership with PPX has made a difference to how we approach cost control, budget and growth plans.

And it's not just about contracted work, they're always there for us when we need help and guidance. They over-deliver and give massive value to us."

Gabor Szalay
Gabor Logistics Ltd

"I’ve worked with PPX for a couple of years through some very difficult times for my business. Their knowledge and expertise have been invaluable, and they have always gone above and beyond to help.

Adrian has become a person I turn to regularly for advice and have no qualms recommending PPX for accountancy / advisory services"

I already have an accountant, why would I move to PPX?

PPX was founded by a Finance Director with real-world experience and this feeds into everything we do. We pride ourselves on a proactive, problem-solving approach that goes beyond just crunching your numbers. Our 'Give a man a fish' approach ensures that you will always understand what we put in front of you, and there will be no nasty surprises.

What additional services do you offer?

At PPX, we cover all things financial. Our core services of book-keeping, accounting, analysis and payroll are our bread-and-butter, but we also support with business valuation/acquisition, company formation, strategic planning, training for business owners/finance teams, and just about anything else financial.

My business is still pretty small. Do I need an accountant yet?

The truth is you probably don't need an accountant in the early days of your business. However, we advocate getting the right financial foundations in place from day one, so that you can build financial controls into your business as early as possible.

I get great deal from my accountant, will you be able to compete with that?

We won't try to compete on price. Our holistic approach focuses on providing value and, unlike many accountants, we proactively support our clients in achieving profitable growth.

This approach means that, in the majority of cases, the increased value in the business outweighs our cost.

If you're happy with your current accountant, but need additional services, there's no need to move. We have several clients who work with us during the year but use a different accountant for their year-end accounts.
