About Us
Adept Bookkeeping and Payroll Services was established by David Cobain AICB(comp) after Qualifying with the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers in December 2009. David has been keeping books for over 25yrs, firstly for his own business and latterly as an award winning manager in the Licenced Trade.

David started Adept Bookkeeping and Payroll Services aimed at small businesses with up to ten employees after having kept books for firstly his own company and for the last 15 years in the licenced trade. In his experience of talking to small business people, he found that doing the 'Paper Work' or 'Having to spend a week in the office rather than focusing on the main aim of the business' is the least favourite time spent by most small companies. However it is a vital part of any business. Adept Bookkeeping and Payroll Services provides a professional service which puts you in control whilst allowing you the time to run the business instead of getting bogged down in the drudgery of the paperwork every time the VAT, tax or payroll is due.
You run your business and we do the number crunching for you.
