20150312 Carol R 01 LOW RESHi, my name is Carol and I am the proprietor of Chromium Bookkeeping. I chose to work for myself after several years of working for others and wanted to be able to use my own knowledge and experience to help many small businesses. Credit control is my passion, as I love to build relationships between clients and their customers, and believe this is the way to get the best out of people.

I have worked for both large FTSE 100 companies and small local businesses, so have experience of the differences and how things can change in an instant.

I have worked within finance for over 15 years, including 12 years in credit control roles, carrying out payroll, reconciliations, and payment queries. I also have a level 3 diploma with Association of Accounting Technicians and continue to study, as I am always looking to expand my knowledge.

I am the treasurer of Peterborough Lions Club, of Lions Clubs International, a voluntary charity organisation.

So, enough about me, why not give us a call and see how we can save you money and stress by taking on your bookkeeping, payroll and credit control. what have you got to lose?

why choose us

Starting – and running – a small business is a challenge which can be really rewarding – a chance to focus on things you excel at and enjoy doing.

Chances are, those things do not include keeping the books, chasing debts, filing VAT returns, etc, and the time you spend doing it would be better spent delivering goods or services to your customers, or (if you find the books get left until evenings and weekends) spent with your family (or a good book and a glass of wine!). And it’s always a job that can be left until tomorrow, or next week, or until the VAT return is due….

Many small businesses – especially sole traders – feel that paying someone to do bookkeeping is a cost that cannot be justified. At Chromium Bookkeeping we know where you are coming from, but also understand that sometimes paying an expert for a couple of hours work is more cost effective than spending several hours (often miserably!) doing a task that would be better done by someone else.

This is particularly true with tasks like credit control – a role which can massively improve cash flow and profitability and if done well will improve (and certainly not damage) your relationships with important customers.

If any of this sounds familiar, we’d love to talk to you and see if we can help give you your life back. Why not give us a call or drop us an email?
