Providing support for individuals and small businesses

A good Bookkeeper will work with you to put systems in place to ensure your books are in good order, to help you obtain relevant and insightful information on your business finances in good time. A good Accountant will work with you to help grow your business, ensure that your Companies House and HMRC filing deadlines are met, whilst ensuring that you are paying the least amount of tax possible. This is where Practical Bookkeeping, Accounting & Taxation Services (PBATS) come in.

PBATS is run by Rebecca Wisbey & Martin Beales, who are licensed and regulated by the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT). They have over 34 years experience between them working in bookkeeping and accounts, so you can take care of business and let us take care of the books and filing deadlines!

PBATS was recently formed on the 1st October 2019 by merger of Rebecca's business, Practical Bookkeeping Services and Martin's business, BAT Services. Martin's business was based in Leigh-on-sea, while Rebecca's was originally based in Rayleigh and then expanded to an office in Leigh-on-Sea where the newly merged company is based. From here we provide a wide range of services locally to clients in Rayleigh, Leigh-on-Sea, Southend-on-Sea and Benfleet, plus further afield with clients in Maldon, Witham, Dunmow, Colchester, London and beyond. So if you're based in one of those areas (or beyond!) and are in need of some help with your Bookkeeping, Accounting or Tax then get in touch!

We look forward to hearing from you and meeting you for an informal chat to discuss your individual needs. If you're going to call in to see us, please do get in touch first, although we aim to have someone in the office Monday to Friday we wouldn't want you to waste a journey!
