Who is the person behind Eden Bookkeeping Solutions?
Updated: Apr 16
Eden Bookkeeping Solutions is a cloud-based #bookkeeping practice founded by me, Gemma Le-Rossignol Bradley. My journey in bookkeeping began in 1999 when I started doing bookkeeping for a piercing parlour, and from there, I knew I was a numbers geek!
Over the years, I have worked in various finance-related environments and gained experience working with clients from different industries, including builders, beauticians, electricians, and personal trainers. I have worked with companies of different sizes, #limitedbusinesses, #soletraders, and #selfemployed individuals.
In 2015, I had my first child, Eden, and I decided to leave employment to start my own practice to give a better work-life balance, which led to the founding of Eden Bookkeeping Solutions. Little did I know a few years later I would also have a daughter who now asks why I don't have a business named after her! Renesmae payroll perhaps?!
The practice has since grown, and my mum, Sue, has also joined the team. As the practice is cloud-based using #xero accounting software, we work with clients from all over the UK, but I still enjoy working with local clients that I can visit.
During my journey I have also become a tech geek and I have automated many processes to help our clients keep up with their deadlines and avoid HMRC penalties. I have continued to study for several qualifications, including payroll diplomas, self-assessment diplomas, and cash flow training, to provide the best possible service for my clients and keep up to date with forever-changing taxation legislation!
One thing that sets Eden Bookkeeping Solutions apart is our commitment to building strong relationships with our clients. I talk to them regularly and I am passionate about doing my best for them. I remember my first job in an accountant's practice, you wouldn't dare enter the building without a suit! Things are very different now and you will generally find me in a branded sweatshirt, jeans and a pair of Converse.
Outside of running the business, I enjoy spending time with my family. I love doing arts and crafts with the kids, working out, and indulging in my passion for tattoos. I am currently working on completing a sleeve, which is definitely a valuable asset in financial terms! And last but not least, I enjoy a glass of wine in my free time, unwinding and relaxing after a long day.
So that is all about me, feel free to get in touch so I can find out about you!
