What happens when that new client calls and you don't get to the phone? Will they call back or will they move on to the next accountant or bookkeeper on the list?
There may be times, especially in the early days of setting up your business, when you are not able to answer the phone. This may be due to other work commitments, meetings or having children around.
A telephone answering service can be invaluable for catching calls (and potential new clients) you would have otherwise missed.
Calls will be answered promptly, in the name of your business, and all details will be recorded and passed on to you. This is a pay as you go service with no monthly fee and prices are from 80p to £1 per call. The minimum spend is just one call per month. Once you sign up your account will be credited with £5.00.
