Sheila married her husband, Andy in 2002 and took up a position as an Assistant Accountant before she and Andy decided that they wanted to emigrate to Australia.

“In December 2006, we left England for our new life in Australia. We ran a corner shop in a small town called Golden Bay, in Western Australia. We loved every minute of it but sadly we were unable to complete the requirements of our visa as Andy was diagnosed with a heart condition and diabetes and I developed a rare form of breast cancer. In April 2011 we returned to England and have been living with my eldest son since. We have both now recovered from our illnesses and we are looking forward to a bright future and making enough money to be able to return to Australia and live out our retirement years.”

How Sheila got involved with Rosemary Bookkeeping

Rosemary Bookkeeping Franchise Opportunity

“I first came across Rosemary whilst looking at franchises on the internet. I then visited the stand at the franchise exhibition at Excel, London and I was impressed with the people that I spoke to on the stand. They were all informative and very enthusiastic about the franchise opportunity. At subsequent meetings everyone was very easy to talk to, my questions were answered readily and I didn’t feel that I was being put under pressure to purchase the franchise at any point. I felt comfortable with everyone I met and that I would fit into the team with no problem. I was made to feel that Rosemary Bookkeeping wanted me.

“Rosemary has given me the potential to develop a really good, profitable business from something that I actually enjoy doing. I can ‘be my own boss’ and the success of the business will be the result of my efforts.”

Sheila’s secrets to success…

“I plan to expand my franchise enough to take on at least one other person to cope with the volume of work so that I still have sufficient time to advertise and promote the business. While the system belongs to Rosemary Bookkeeping I plan to market myself and my personal attributes. I want my clients to automatically think of me when they think of bookkeeping and the name Rosemary.”

What Joanna Dennis, Franchise Development Director of Rosemary Bookkeeping says:
“Sheila is a conscientious and careful bookkeeper with great attention to detail. From the moment we met Sheila we thought she would fit perfectly with the Rosemary family of franchise partners.”

About Rosemary Bookkeeping

Rosemary Bookkeeping is a British Franchise Association accredited franchise, based on a successful business which was established in 2002 and offers a unique bookkeeping system which is built around charging clients per transaction rather than per hour.

The Founding Partners have over 60 years of business and bookkeeping experience between them in the essential business disciplines of accounting, operations, sales and marketing.

According to the Federation of Small Businesses, over 4 million customers NEED this service. By law, all businesses in the UK are required to keep records of their transactions which later are used by an accountant to file for tax and often VAT. Managing these transactions through bookkeeping is often the biggest headache to the small business owner and a task that is left at the bottom of the pile.

There is a growing network of established Franchise Partners in the UK either running their franchise as a management business with bookkeepers undertaking the work for them or working on client accounts themselves.
