Thank you for taking the time to visit my website. I’m Paul Maddison the owner of Bookkeeping Intelligence.
I was a commercial banker for nearly 30 years and gained a wealth of knowledge and experience in B2B environments. My experience from sales to cost control, business development and relationship management to leadership, risk management to strategy development and implementation, help me understand the fine balance and challenges SME businesses face.
Helping others achieve their goals is something I'm passionate about. I measure my success on how well I can help businesses grow in an effective and safe manner.
During my banking career I met many businesses which were experiencing poor bookkeeping practices, or had a fantastic set of “books” but were not using that information to improve their business. I realised there was an opportunity to help businesses not only comply with their legal obligation to “keep books”, but to turn the cost of producing those books into a valuable asset.
At the same time I have been able to combine my passion of working with numbers and data to produce meaningful and useful business information.
My customers have always been at the heart of my business activities. I have an empathetic, positive and optimistic approach, very personable and believe anything is possible.
I’m totally committed to making a success of my business which I do by supporting and being a part of the local business community. My motto is to never be afraid to ask for assistance when you need it. Being self-aware and recognising a gap in your business arsenal, and doing something about it, is just as valuable as having all the answers.
I am a fully qualified and certified bookkeeper through the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers. Bookkeeping is a regulated profession and I would encourage you to always insist on a Certified Bookkeeper and verify their credentials.
