ABOUT US

MR Books was founded in 2012 by Misha Rosenthall, who has worked in the bookkeeping sector since 2008. Misha recognised that an increasing number of small businesses were intimidated by their accountants and wanted a friendlier approach to help them make sense of their numbers.

The company has gone from strength to strength ever since. MR Books now counts a number of prominent Essex businesses as clients, and is a leading subcontractor for a large Essex-based accountancy practice. The MR Books client base is varied with clients including building services, public houses, web design and retail services, to name a few.

Charlie Harris joined the company as a Business Administration Apprentice in 2016. He passed his apprenticeship with flying colours and was offered a permanent position as Bookkeeping Assistant in 2017. He is currently studying for the AAT Level II Qualification.

Misha strives to provide an excellent all round bookkeeping and payroll service, and will always take the time to help clients with any questions. MR Books pride themselves on never charging for additional phone calls or email assistance, and want clients to feel that they can make contact at any time; without fear of hidden fees.

The world of bookkeeping and accountancy is constantly changing. Misha keeps up with these changes by embracing cloud bookkeeping software and other innovative processing solutions that save clients time and money.

The company seeks to provide a service that is seamless and hassle-free, so clients can get on with running their business in the knowledge that their bookkeeping is in safe hands.

MR Books is owned and operated by Misha Rosenthall AICB CB.Cert PM Dip.

TESTIMONIALS

  • 5⭐ service. Always there for guidance, totally professional book keeper. Would highly recommend.

    Rachel Lipscombe
  • Professional, efficient and great value for money. Couldn’t ask from more from a bookkeeper, highly recommended.

    Abigail Danielle Martin-Coldwell
  • ‘Over the years of working with MR Books, I can safely say that there is no one I’d rather work with. Not only is their work exemplary and have taken the burden off of countless clients of their bookkeeping, but they are consummate professionals and approach everything they do with a friendly manner. Nothing is too much trouble for Misha and her team and i have complete confidence in everything she does. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone’.

    Adam Cohen, ACCA
  • ‘I don’t know what I’d do without Misha, she reminds me to send over my payroll when I’m busy and the helpful links and updates that she sends over keep me up to date with what’s changing and what I need to do. It’s a huge weight off my shoulders knowing she is there to help with anything I need’.

    Izzie – ReLoved Home
  • I first met Misha when she helped me out during my Maternity Leave, she took on my clients, doing their monthly bookkeeping and payroll. She is now covering for me again on Maternity Leave, and I know I don’t have to worry as she has taken over seamlessly once again. I find her to be professional, reliable, and so easy to deal with and she has a great sense of humour. Her knowledge is impressive, and I think she has achieved a lot for someone of her age. I have looked for quite a few bookkeepers to help me out over the years and no one has been as good as Misha.

    Nicola Curtis
  • Misha has been a huge support to the Bradwell on Sea Community Shop. She was asked to take over keeping the books for the shop at a time when the business was growing rapidly. She helped put systems in place and provided regular financial information – from the beginning going the extra mile to make up for the fact that the whole business relied heavily on volunteers. Her contribution has been enormous –and the fact that she has done this with great good humour while building her own business is a tribute to her drive and ambition.

    Bob Jobbins, Treasurer, Bradwell-on-Sea Community Shop
  • MR Books have been a breath of fresh air, professional, prompt and a joy to work with. I would 100% recommend Misha and her team!

I’ve just booked my place on this - link in comments
.
.
Some great speakers lined up with regard to super fast broadband, business funding and business rates. There will also be a variety of local business stands, networking and those ever important refreshments.
.
.
£5 on the door for non members but it’s refunded if you join the Chamber on the night.
.
I’ve met loads of really interesting people and gained referrals from joining the Chamber, so it’s well worth the money.
.

Almost forgot to mention this!
.
.
MR Books belongs to the Burnham on Crouch Chamber of Commerce which is a society dedicated to supporting local businesses.
.
The New Year, New Focus event is being held at the Royal Corinthian Yacht Club in Burnham on Crouch, doors open at 7pm.
.
.
Note there is a £5 on-the-door charge for non members, although if you sign up as a member on the night this charge is refunded.
.
.
Speakers are to be confirmed but so far they will be centred around Business Rates, Broadband Services and Business Funding which I’m sure are areas of interest to most business owners.
.
.
I’m also informed there will be refreshments (always an important factor in deciding whether or not to attend an event) and networking.

It’s Wednesday!
.
.
Subcontracting in beautiful Burnham on Crouch today, and have taken on a new accountants payroll, so 41 new payrolls to add in to Moneysoft tonight 😱
.
.
We’ve also got a big catch up job starting for a nightclub in London; a delayed VAT registration to sort, and of course our lovely daily bookkeeping clients to keep in touch with.
.
.
I hope to catch up with all this work soon and work through my waiting list. Hate making people wait but it’s better to be honest I reckon!

It’s the MR Books 2018 Christmas Message!

I didn’t have any babies this year. The end! Haha there’s more.

I’d like to thank my fantastic clients for another great year, and wish them a Merry Christmas. I’ve been a sole trader for 7 years this year, and I absolutely love my job, I wouldn’t swap it for any other career. Except maybe a professional gin taster but realistically that isn’t going to happen.

It isn’t easy, in fact it’s often really hard. I have three kids and sometimes it all gets a bit crazy. I’d like to publicly apologise if you’ve heard someone asking me to wipe their bum whilst I’ve been discussing your tax.

My biggest thanks of 2018 though goes to my assistant Mr Charlie Harris - without your dedication, reliability and honesty (along with some pretty amazing bookkeeping and payroll skills) I would not be able to do this.

Thank you Charlie, I really, properly, appreciate your hard work this year. I don’t tell you enough that I am so very proud of you and all you have achieved. Happy Christmas to you. PS - can you just run one more payroll 😂😅

So, here’s to 2019, may you all have a healthy and prosperous year ahead.

And - because it’s Christmas so it’s the law that cheesy stuff must be written - don’t look back, you’re not going that way ❤️
