Thank you for browsing through my website.
My name is Alice Mason, I was born in Prague, The Czech Republic, and I live in Lowton. In summer 2008 I decided to set up a business called “biking bookkeeper” to operate on a part time trial, whilst still working for Munro Summers Architects (MSA) on High Street, Newton le Willows as a Practice/Marketing Manager/Bookkeeper/Payroll Clerk full time.
Now, after successfully passing exams I became a certified bookkeeper under ICB (Institute of Certified Bookkeepers) and received additional titles to my two Masters so now Ing. Alice Mason, MSc., AICB CB. Cert PM Dip. is not only specialised in Economics and Mangement (Ing. – Czech Republic), Marketing and Social Sciences (MSc. – the Netherlands) but also bookkeeping, Self Assessment Tax Returns and Payroll Management as an Associate (AICB CB. Cert PM Dip.) with a Practice Licence No. 11076.
Currently working towards a Member being able to draft final accounts for limited companies and partnerships. However at the moment these can be prepared and handed over to your accountant.
As I have several years worth of experience in bookkeeping/payroll with MSA, and have worked diligently with MSA’s outsourced accountant Jackson Stephen to acquire a vast understanding of the UK accountancy system, I have decided to set out to help local businesses and start-ups with their finances. I love numbers and working with them, but realise there are so many people who hate the idea of spending their valued time monitoring their financial position.
Why biking bookkeeper
The bike allows me to specialise locally and provide excellent services to local business in Newton-le-Willows, Lowton, St. Helens, Warrington, Haydock, Golborne, Birchwood, Wigan, Ashton in Makerfiels, Hindley, Tyldesley, Atherton, Worsley, Leigh, Culcheth, Croft, Glazebury, and also Liverpool and Manchester (might be a bit restricted on the cycling part 🙂 ) etc.. The local community is so neglected these days and the idea of mutually supporting business appeals to me immensely.
It is incredibly rewarding to know that my carbon footprint is kept low with some personal fitness thrown into the equation! What could possibly be a better mix for a business model! My aim is to be an ecologically friendly service provider and if a client applies for ISO14001 my experience could be the driving force in gaining this certification.
Let’s not concentrate too much on the bike though, it’s my bookkeeping and the business support services which really count.
