We are the support you can depend upon
and delegate to.
Admin and bookkeeping is often seen as the least glamorous part of running a business and although very important the work can be time consuming, tedious and sometimes even daunting. It has a habit of building up when you’re not looking and becoming a huge task that eats into the time you would prefer to be spending with paying clients or taking time out.
What we do
• Provide practical, workable, and cost-effective solutions to everyday business issues.
• Help clients get their business admin in order and find automated solutions to tasks to save business hours.
• Take the pain out of embracing new technology.
• Deliver 1-1 training tailored specifically to the needs of our clients.
• Provide on-going support and back up.
• Be the extra hours and pair of hands when things get busy.
Hi, I am Kate Clifton, the founder of the Paperwork Team.
The Paperwork Team was born in 2011 out of the desire to help other businesses get their Admin and bookkeeping organised. I wanted to share the office related skills and experience I have gained throughout my career and running my own successful business to help others.
I have a husband and two grown up children as well as two reasonably well-behaved Border Collies, who can quite often be found lying around my feet in the office while I am working.
In my spare time I enjoy cooking and sharing a meal or a coffee with family and friends or walking with the dogs and enjoying our beautiful countryside.
I have a passion for good customer service and my aim is to help small business owners to have time to enjoy their leisure pursuits as well as to run their business successfully.
The Paperwork Team are a group of experienced admin assistants, who work alongside Kate and who are also passionate about helping clients to enjoy running their businesses.
Within the team are many different personalities who bring expertise from different backgrounds and use their knowledge and experience for the benefit of our clients.
As a team we work together to find the most beneficial and cost-effective ways of helping our clients to achieve their goals, whether that be managing their own paperwork or taking the pressure off by dealing with some or all of it for them.
We understand the importance of confidentiality, reliability, commitment to a project and trust and regularly receive lovely comments from our clients about our service.
We all get really excited when our Clients learn new methods of doing their administration or get to grips with some of the great software packages available. Xero being one system that we highly recommend.
