Hi I am Joyce,
In 2002 the accountancy firm I was employed by made some changes which resulted in me working for them on a part time self-employed basis, this enable me to spend more time with my family.
I wanted to do something that would enable me to help people but still spend time with my family and after a couple of years I gained some more clients and established River Bookkeeping & Payroll Limited. I stayed with the accountancy practice for over 15 years and towards the end of that time they merged with a larger firm of accountants, who employed me as their payroll manager, after 3 years I left as River Bookkeeping Ltd expanded. In May 2020 I took on my first employee Nicky Blay
I am a member of the Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals and The Institute of Accountants and Bookkeepers .
In February 2021 I joined the IAB as an Ambassador and in July 2023 I joined Bookkeepers Detox Ltd as a team leader. Both roles enable me to help and support other bookkeepers facing the challenges of running a bookkeeping business and keeping up to date with the legislative challenges.
The IAB recorded a series of Podcasts interviewing the IAB Ambassadors about there careers, click the link below to hear my story.
Hi I am Nicky
I have always loved working with numbers whether it was as part of my 27 year banking career, or in helping family and friends with their personal or business finances.
In 2019 I decided to follow my passion for bookkeeping and formalise my knowledge and experience studying with AAT and have since gained Level 3 Advanced Certificate in Bookkeeping. I continue to study to further expand my knowledge in the wider accountancy world.
In May 2020, I was proud to join River Bookkeeping Ltd and work alongside Joyce with her vast expertise.
I have a great portfolio of clients that I love working with, and finding solutions to all their varying needs.
