I started working with Leigh (Penbrook Bookkeeping) at a time when the finances of my business were struggling - and this was partly due to the fact that I had a very shallow understanding in this area. Now I realise that certain testimonials are perhaps a little over the top and at times not all together truthful– but I can hand on heart say that Leigh’s effect on my business has been incredible.
I now have a thorough understanding of this area and even enjoy it! To say that there has been an improvement in the way in which the finances are dealt with and the health of the business overall is an understatement. Leigh has run businesses before and this helps him to understand many challenges that business owners face. I put my trust in Leigh and I would encourage you to do the same.
Penbrook Bookkeeping undertook a couple of Projects encompassing forensic accounting/bookkeeping and business process re-engineering. The detailed analysis undertaken enabled the resolution of a number of issues and a return to profitability in a section of the business. The process mapping highlighted opportunities for improvements. Leigh’s approach changes financial capture and analysis from tedious to enlightening. I highly recommend Leigh and co. I find them conscientious, reliable, trustworthy; they deliver and go the extra mile.
As a small business producing a range of high quality bakery products to the food service industry, we have used Penbrook bookkeeping since 2013.
Keeping on top of the financial side of a business is essential to its smooth running and ours is no exception. Leigh and his team are experts at ensuring that financial records are kept accurate and up-to-date, providing a very professional service. Penbrook provide a lot more than just bookkeeping and have a great deal of experience in how to maximise business performance. Leigh’s knowledge and experience have been a valuable resource to me that I recommend highly to any other business.

As a wood wizard I rate myself second to none, but as for paperwork and organising my finances I confess to being nearly useless. For this reason I asked for your help.
Not only did you give me a lesson in using my own laptop, but sorted out my backlog with my RTI and explain it to me, your patience and the way you talked me through things was excellent, making things simple enough for even me to understand.
So it goes without saying that I would be delighted to recommend you and your company whenever possible.

When I needed help to sort out my projections to finalise the funding application, with a new restaurant to open and project management of the final fit out I didn’t have the time, or in all honesty the knowledge to prepare what the funder required.
How glad am I to have been recommended to yourself, within a few days you had met with me, understood exactly what we were aiming to achieve and prepared the financial projections that have helped me complete the project.
I could not have opened the restaurant without your help. I have no hesitation in recommending you to my business contacts.
Thanks once again for a truly exceptional service.
