“One of our key customers is an online retailer. The biggest
difference between an online client and a regular client is the
lack of paperwork. We exchange all of the documents we need online
and then upload them into our own online software in order to
generate an invoice for each transaction. It’s a very simplistic
system. There can be VAT issues depending on where their customer
is and foreign currency can be a bit more complex. Rosemary Head
Office support us in the technical aspects of the work and if we
ever have any queries they’re our first port of call. We structured
our online system along the lines of the Rosemary system which
gives us guidelines for our own business,” explain Tony and Rosie,

how to provide the best service for each one. As the bookkeeping

and make sure that everything we do is in line with the changes.
