Welcome to
Peter James Bookkeeping

Running your own business is challenging, but also rewarding and exciting. However, you may not be too thrilled about the prospect of sorting  your own bookkeeping and accounts, and the thought of filing all the necessary submissions may be a daunting one. Maybe you would like a live set of accounts that can give you more information for planning purposes.

I offer a range of bookkeeping, accounts and self assessment services for sole traders, freelancers, partnerships, small businesses and individuals. I am based in Crewe, Cheshire, and I also offer a fully remote service.

I am a Quickbooks Certified ProAdvisor, a Xero Bronze Partner and a FreeAgent Practitioner. If you want to get set up with software, I can help you with that.

Peter James Bookkeeping and Self Assessment

Peter James MICB PM.Dip

ICB Certified Bookkeeper

I have 18 years’ experience of providing business support for small businesses and individuals on a freelance basis. My aim is to save you both time and money by providing an efficient, bespoke service for each and every client.

My Services



I offer a regular bookkeeping service to process your day to day transactions. I will use Cloud software or set this up for you (Xero, Quickbooks, FreeAgent). I will reconcile your business bank account, can also carry out VAT returns and help with year-end final accounts.


Self assessment

I can either manage the whole self assessment tax return process for you, or assist you in completing what many see as a dreaded task. If you are using me as your bookkeeper, you will benefit from early submission of your self assessment as your books will be fully up to date.



If you pay staff or are about to employ staff, I can help you with this. I offer a full payroll management service, including generation of payslips, P45s, P60s, payment summaries, monthly RTI (Real Time Information) submissions, pension auto-enrolment etc.

“Peter handles my accounts and submits my self assessment tax return each year. He is always clear at explaining everything for me and does so in a non-patronising and supportive way.”
First class service by Peter, who takes out all of the stress from my bookkeeping, VAT, self assessment, payroll etc. A very professional service that I would highly recommend.
“Peter does my bookkeeping and self assessment. He also set me up with online software so I can invoice my customers efficiently and can see where my business is at.”
