Know Somebody Interested in Setting Up Their Own
Bookkeeping Business?

The Professional Bookkeepers Academy was created by a team of professionals who came together from bookkeeping, IT, banking, accounting and marketing backgrounds to create a programme to provide bookkeepers with solid training and qualifications that will ensure they stand out from the crowd.

This initiative has been a considerable amount of time in the planning and has finally resulted in the launch of the Professional Bookkeepers Academy Start Your Own Bookkeeping Business Training Programme in May 2014.

Additionally, the close relationship with SortMyBooks Online Accounting Software best positions the Academy to create matches made in heaven between highly qualified bookkeepers and the ambitious business owners who are actively seeking out help with their business books and records.

What makes the Professional Bookkeepers Academy  programme stand out from other bookkeeping training courses is our 100%  commitment to helping our delegates build their own business not just during, but also AFTER, successful graduation from the Academy.
