QuickBooks Advanced Pro Advisors
We have been in practice for 24 years, many of our clients have been with us since the beginning, something we are very proud of. We have always focused on technology to drive our business and when Making Tax Digital first hit the headlines we made a strategic decision to base our practice on the Quickbooks Online platform. We are now Quickbooks Online Advanced Pro Advisors (the highest possible level advisors) and QuickBooks Platinum Partners (the highest possible level of partner). 95% of all our clients now use Quickbooks for their bookkeeping. It will be 100% soon! So all our clients are now ready for Making Tax Digital, even though this major event is still about a year from coming into operation.
The use of Quickbooks online allows clients to use other fantastic time saving software such as AutoEntry, with whom we also partner. It also allows us to link to apps such as Spotlight Reporting to generate management accounts that are easy to understand and easy on the eye.
We have a sister company that delivers QBO training for non-clients. We have helped businesses all over the country with setting up QBO, training and then developing the system to best suit their needs. So you don’t need to be a client to get our help, just visit www.aspelldigital.com to find out more.

David has been so helpful and patient with two dinosaurs of the computer world! His calm and professional manner has enabled us to understand the workings of QuickBooks. We were initially worried about doing our accounts in this way but David explained everything so clearly that we are now confident about using it. He has been a real asset to our business and we enjoy working with him. We would recommend him for his advice and expertise in all levels of business.Holiday rental business, multiple units
David has been a great addition to our team. It feels like he cares about our business and as an SME that really means something. We can contact him with queries regarding our accounts or coding transactions and he always responds quickly and professionally, enabling us to make faster and better informed decisions.Design and manufacturing business
Having worked with David since the inception of my business I have received not only first class tax and accounting advice but invaluable business advice that has helped our company to gain a strong position in the market place and to grow year on year. When complex issues arise that require advice we can always rely on a quick and professional response from David and that is a testament to the service he provides.Leisure industry business
David has been very helpful and generous with his expertise as I negotiated the development of my small business from scratch over the past three years. He has guided me through the tortuous tax and VAT processes and corrected my numerous mistakes. His advice to move over to QuickBooks was sage and has saved me a lot of time and energy with respect to my business accounting.Growing international environmental consultancy practice
We have worked with David for many years and would recommend his practice to anyone. Always helpful, has bags of knowledge and he is very patient with us. David advised us to switch to QB this year and we haven’t looked back. There have been some incredible cost and efficiency savings for us as a direct result of David’s expertise. I cannot recommend highly enough and he is a pleasure to work with.Large charity £1m income
We met with David and Helen in March. They set up our QuickBooks account and provided such support and ease of use for instructions on how to do things. I was very wary of using QuickBooks online but I can honestly say it has changed our working practice for the good. Nothing is too much trouble for David and he is a complete pleasure to work with. I would recommend his services to anyone.Large audio visual company
