Rosemary Bookkeeping

Company Overview

Rosemary Bookkeeping offer bookkeeping services to ALL small businesses and accountants.

As an accredited member of the bfa and having recently been acquired by well-known franchisor and fellow bfa member, ServiceMaster - who have almost 60 years’ experience in franchising, Rosemary Bookkeeping are a franchise opportunity to be seriously considered when looking for a franchisor to partner up with.

Did you know that by law, all businesses in the UK are required to keep records of their transactions which are later used by an accountant to file for tax and often VAT?

Our bookkeeping solution gives business owners their precious time back to focus on growing their business, rather than doing their books.

Rosemary can work with businesses in all sectors and from a sole trader to a ltd company. We can help all businesses relieve some pressure and time by offering our intelligent bookkeeping service to them.

Based on our average client value across the network, just 34 clients can generate a Rosemary business owner a turnover of £100,000.
