A warm welcome from Claire and Lee.

Hello and thank you for visiting our website. 

As business owners we totally understand the benefit of out sourcing the work we're not good at, and focusing on the work we are good at. Which is why Tradermate was set up to help support small to medium size businesses and sole traders look after their finances. 

Between the two of us we have over 30 years of experience working in finance, management and the trade industry.

Claire, a CIMA chartered accountant and Lee a qualified bookkeeper met whilst working at Checkatrade.com. 

Claire left her role as Head of Finance after the sale of the business to Homeserve having been at the company for 9 years. 

Lee spent 5 and half years at the company helping to manage and train a team of 30+ in the rather large sales ledger department.

When away from work, we will often be found motor homing in the Dorset countryside, at the races or looking after our hives of bees.


Jargon Free and Simple.

We take away the hassle of “paper work” and focus on keeping you up to date with your numbers using our specialist knowledge of Xero's award winning cloud accounting software.

Bookkeeping is the fundamental element of your entire accounting function. Getting this right means we can deliver accurate management accounts on a monthly basis so you can see how your business is performing, who owes you money and how much you owe.

We keep it as simple as possible so you can get on with what you do best.

  • Weekly/Monthly Bookkeeping

  • Bank Reconciliations

  • Sales Ledger and Purchase Ledger Processing

  • Expense Reporting 

  • Monthly/Quarterly Management Reports 


No need to stress.

CIS and VAT can both be problematic, from the correct processing method to dealing with submissions and HMRC. 

We’re here to save the day and make these tasks as simple and painless as possible. 

Let us take away the hassle, so you can get on with something more important.

  • Monthly and Quarterly VAT Submissions 

  • MTD Ready for VAT  

  • VAT Registrations and 1st VAT Claims 

  • Construction Industry Scheme Submissions 

  • Monthly Contractor Statements 

  • EPS Submissions direct to HMRC


Show them the money.

Our payroll service not only takes care of weekly and monthly staff payments, but also updates your accounts and links directly to HMRC and Pension Services. 

This not only saves time for processing, but also ensures accuracy and consistency. 

The icing on the cake is that your staff have access to their payslips, holidays and statutory leave via a simple to use app. 

  • Weekly/Monthly Payroll

  • RTI Administration and Submission to HMRC 

  • Operation of Pension Scheme 

  • Secure Access to digital payslips online 

  • BACS upload file for faster payments


Let us do the chasing.

Getting paid on time is crucial to the cash flow of any business. 

We setup a process to match your business model that ensures all debts are chased and collected at the right times. 

We are also able to help you set up multiple payment methods to make it as easy as possible for your customers to pay you. 

It’s not rocket science, its quality credit control. 

  • Monthly Statements for Customers 

  • Weekly email for clients with overdue balances

  • Weekly aged debtors report with updates  

  • Direct telephone contact to chase debts  

  • Admin support for bad debts & legal cases


One Shot / One Opportunity.

Our call answering and chat box management ensures you never miss the chance to speak to new clients.

Stopping for lunch and seeing you have missed calls from unknown numbers is (what we have been told) one of the most frustration parts of managing a trade business. 

If you're missing calls, or calling people back to be told they have found someone else then let's have a chat.


Write, Create, Post, Repeat.

Managing your social media channels is often the last thing you have time for. 

Hands up, if you have created your Facebook Business account, invited all your friends and are now just about managing a post every 3 months. 

You're not alone. Regular posts through social media let you reach a wider audience, send visitors to your website, show off your handy work and let people know your business is still trading.

If your social media needs a little TLC, give us a call.
