It's always difficult having a separate accountant & bookkeeper. You have to wait for the
bookkeeper to update all the records and then, eventually, they will pass your records on to an
accountant. Then there's a delay while they communicate, retrieve the data, prepare the accounts
and ultimately report on history.
Here at 'Just Pure' we do both. Accountancy AND bookkeeping. We use Xero and make sure the bookkeeping is up-to-date on a regular basis. That way, before we prepare your accounts, we already know the numbers, so we are able to help you BEFORE it's too late. That's the difference.
We still provide all our services individually if required including bookkeeping, annual accounts, VAT returns, payroll, tax returns etc. However, we do find that we are able to give you a far more proactive service when you use us as your complete 'outsourced accountancy solution'.

I am Jason Blackman and I'm the founder of 'Just Pure'. I qualified as an accountant in 2000 and in
2011 it was named as one of 'The UK's best accountancy practices' by Steve Pipe. I was then
lucky enough to be mentioned again by Steve Pipe in 2016 as one of 'The World's Most Inspiring
Although my practice is based in Lewes in East Sussex, not too far from Brighton, we are happy to serve clients anywhere in the UK because we are completely cloud-based. Cloud-based means that all our work is done online in a safe, secure & efficient way. So, although we are based in Sussex, it doesn't necessarily mean that you need accountants Brighton-based, or bookkeeping Lewes-based.
We are so proud of being 'in the cloud' but, if you prefer to work offline and you need to have your bookkeeping Brighton-based, or you need to have your accountants Lewes-based then we are still here for you!
Over the years I have seen many problems with traditional accountants, especially with clients who have a separate bookkeeper. The disparity between the two can often cause clients to have to wait for their accounts to be prepared, often becoming too late to actually do anything about the impending tax bill!
So that is why we are different. Our solution provides the bookkeeping AND the accounts for the client so that we are able to spot any issues that need highlighting before we even start preparing the accounts. Please look around our site to find out more.
