Sheen Stickland launches new service

Sheen Stickland, Chichester based firm of Accountants, has launched a new service for small and start-up businesses.

Blue Sky Books is the name of the new mid-market service, which comes as a response to the high level of interest the firm has received for its online bookeeping services since becoming certified partners of Xero, a cloud-based accounting software.

Using Xero's innovative online software, Blue Sky Books provides small and start-up enterprises with services including bookkeeping, accounts preparation, VAT and KPI tracking. All services are managed via the cloud so that clients can access their accounts anytime and anywhere as long as they have internet connection.

The new service offers a range of fixed fee packages to suit the budgets of various sized businesses depending on their requirements, with fees starting from as little as £150 per month which includes having a dedicated client manager. Blue Sky Books can also offer Xero training, bespoke services, payroll and access to one-to-one advice from accounting experts.

Chichester in the 1960’s..!

We are delighted to share with you this wonderful video of our City centre...

Filmed in the 60's, this 6 minute video features the Railway bridge, Chichester Cathedral, Chichester Cross and the main four streets: North, South, East and West Street.

You will notice in this video that some of the Georgian buildings are in exactly the same place as they are today, 53 years on!

It is fantastic to see that the character of our City remains just as strong as it was in the 60's.

Here it is in all it's glory, thanks to the British Film Institute...enjoy!
