All businesses need to maintain accurate and reliable financial records, whether for government bodies, shareholders or for their own information about cash flow and profit.  Eden bookkeeping can help you process the necessary paperwork and keep you in control of your finances.

Here are some of the services we offer….

Remote Bookkeeping

Software Training

We are fully certified in Xero and Quickbooks Online cloud software.  If you need a little help getting started with these applications, or need a quick update on how to do certain tasks, we can help.

Starting a New Business

Starting a new business is exciting yet a little daunting. We can guide you through the accounts process, from creating professional invoices to choosing the best accounting software for your needs.

VAT Returns

As a VAT registered company you need to submit a return to HMRC every three months. Eden can ensure the figures are calculated correctly, you have processes in place to save for and pay the bill on time.


As an employer, you have a responsibility to calculate pay, tax and national insurance for your employees. Eden can manage your payroll, keeping you current with the ever-changing legislation.

Cash Flow and Credit Control

Knowing when regular payments are due, who owes you money and who you owe can be the key to maintaining a successful business.  We can monitor your accounts and help keep your finances on track.


As a member of the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers (ICB), Eden provides a professional service built on experience and integrity.


Every business is different, Eden has a flexible approach and works with you to build a tailored bookkeeping process that best suits your needs.


Based in East Grinstead, West Sussex, Eden supports local businesses and sole traders by providing a friendly, down-to-earth service.

Eden Bookkeeping is owned by Alison Morphew, a qualified bookkeeper with many years of experience.  She had to learn basic bookkeeping skills for her job running a small shop in East Grinstead (2007) and ended up catching the bookkeeping bug.  Alison decided to undertake full professional training with the Association of Accounting Technicians (2011), followed by the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers (2012).

Having worked within the finance departments of charities and organisations for many years, Alison decided to step out of the shadows of helping a few friends with their annual tax returns to launch her own company, Eden Bookkeeping, in 2012.

Eden is built on a foundation of creating systems and processes that allow sole traders and small business owners to concentrate on their own strengths, releasing them from the nitty-gritty of everyday paperwork and record-keeping.
