Leeds pin meeting

Speaker Feedback

Julie Barker

Julie really knows her numbers and gave both a confident and brilliant presentation! Julie was both informative, and entertaining and there was so much note taking and questions at the end by pin members due to value and content. Julie was also in great demand at the end of the meeting, with many members staying behind to ask questions and to learn from Julie’s wisdom and knowledge.

Sutton pin meeting

Our second speaker was Julie Barker – How the numbers work. I’ve never seen Julie speak before and she came across really confident, warm and very knowledgeable. Again, another presentation delivered without complication and incredibility helpful to our audience. Who knew crunching numbers could be so sexy! We were delighted with her presentation and style of delivery. Dave her hubby was with her and it was nice to see his support.

Slides ready to download, Turned up early checked slides and had a catch up then wandered off and left us to get on with it – absolutely brilliant. Great informative talk, even though talking about numbers she made it interesting and interactive. Top girl! Great feedback from attendees

Julie Barker – what a star. How anyone can make a talk on a topic as dry as book keeping and finance into such an attention grabbing and totally compelling show is jaw-dropping.

This girl deserves an Oscar!!

I have been to many presentations in my time, but the presentation that Julie gave was one of the most helpful and practical that I have ever had the pleasure to attend.

When I can afford a book keeper, I will know who to call 😊

Thank you again.

Kind regards,

Kevin Cope – Koru Property Solutions

At last I have found a bookkeeper who understands my property business and records the transactions in a way that I can understand how my portfolio is performing.

Communications are quick and clear and the books are kept up to date with queries dealt with swiftly.

I would strongly recommend Positive Bookkeeping to anyone needing a book keeper for their property business.

Julie Barker of Positive Bookkeeping started working for me in 2008 as a bookkeeper on a recommendation from an ActionCoach business coach.

Initially one day per week Julie’s hours quickly progressed to 3 days a week, then full time whist she still retained the core client base of her bookkeeping business.

Julie has proved to be hard working, reliable and trustworthy and as a result of these attributes in 2013 she became my Director of Operations looking after all the financial dealings of all of my companies as well as looking after my entire team.

With my blessing, at the beginning of 2016 Julie went full circle and went back to concentrating on Positive Bookkeeping specialising in bookkeeping for property investors, landlords and property developers.

Now a team of six, Positive Bookkeeping continue to look after the books for my personal property portfolio and my developments as well as a large, growing number of property investors and landlords.

The property finance knowledge that Julie and her team have is second to none and I have no hesitation in recommending Positive Bookkeeping.

Julie Barker

Julie gave a confident and entertaining presentation with a solid Q & A session at the end.

She made a “dry” subject like accounts / bookkeeping into an informative and educational experience for the pin audience.

Blue Infinity Property Group

Positive Bookkeeping is a vital part of our team.

They have improved how we record expenses and invoices while being flexible in working with tools we are comfortable with. They overhauled our Xero records which had become quite a mess with hundreds of unreconciled entries and transactions.

Bookkeeping was a major headache for us and it was holding back the development of our business, but since working with Positive Bookkeeping we have been able to focus on growing our business with the confidence that our books are in great hands.

We can’t say enough what a pleasure (and relief!) it is working with Julie, Paul, and the rest of the team.

On behalf of Little Property Group (PDA) I can honestly say that the service Positive Bookkeeping Ltd has provided has been second to none. With Julie’s (and the teams) extensive knowledge and expert advice our books have never been so organised and up to date.

I would most certainly recommend Positive Bookkeeping Ltd.

Thank you for your continued support.

Kind regards

I initially approached Positive Bookkeeping for help with my book keeping after they were recommended to me by my accountant.

I required a bookkeeper who was very experienced in managing property investors in order to help me professionalise my accounting practises.

I also wanted to use a cloud based software system to enable easy access to detailed and real time data. Julie advised that she could fulfil all of my criteria and we agreed on the use of Xero as the accounting software system.

We have now been working together for a few years and I have data that I can access at any time of the day or night with almost real time accuracy. I also receive monthly reporting to complement.

Our relationship and system enables me to manage my business and finances much more effectively. Throughout this time, Julie and Paul have consistently provided their knowledge and experience to ensure my data is in order and they have been truly dedicated to providing the best customer experience possible.

Nothing has been too much trouble. I am extremely pleased with the service they have provided and l look forward to continuing to work with them for many years ahead.

I was first introduced to Julie Barker of Positive Bookkeeping at a networking event 12 years ago. We were at the start of my journey with Ram Training Ltd and had little idea about which way to turn regarding my financial liabilities.

We quickly realised that Julie had most of the answers to my questions. Over the next 6 months Julie took our accounts in hand and would call on a regular basis to get our books in order.

Her advice was to get on with what we do best and leave the bookwork to her; that was sound advice and advice I still use to this day. Small businesses can spend far to much time trying to save costs rather than spending time on what creates revenue.

Within 3 months after registering the company we went VAT registered again Julie was there look after the books.

Julie understands that all businesses are different so one way doesn’t fit all. As part of the service Julie would sit us down and individually go thorough our invoices trying to make sense of what had purchased to run the company.

These afternoons led to a great friendship between both of our families. Today Ram Training is thriving and Julie is still there beavering away in the background always there always happy to take a call day or night.

Julie Barker was decisive in encouraging and guiding us through the early stages of starting our property portfolio.

We whole heartedly recommend Julie Barker and the team at Positive Bookkeeping.
