Whats new with DS Business Support
We are happy to announce a brand new service!! If you are always hands on at work and struggle to keep on top of admin and paying suppliers, we are here to take that off your to do list. We have teamed up with a great software company which integrate with your Xero - meaning any bills which are due are paid on time - without us needing direct access to your bank account. If you would like more information on this service, please let me know
As you know - on our invoices to you there are options to pay via Stripe(card), PayPal, bank transfer and standing order if you are on a fixed fee. For those of you who's fees change each monthly depending on the volume of work, or who manually reimburse us for monthly software, there is now an option to pay via direct debit. Please let me know if you need a hand setting this up.
**NEWS** We are super proud to have been chosen for a write up from Xero. I am so grateful how far the company has come in the last couple of years and I couldn't of done any of it without our loyal clients, hard working staff and support from the great accountants we work alongside.
