Gary Martin

Bookkeeping Guru, Proud beard-wearer, and Chief Tea Maker

Having spent over 16 years in the retail industry occupying various positions and job roles, I discovered what customers like…a good cost-effective service with a smile.

Working for a number of national retailers I realised how important facts and figures are in the running of an effective business, and after achieving several bookkeeping and accounting qualifications, Back to Black Bookkeeping was born.

I am also a Small Business Mentor, gaining recognition from the Institute of Enterprise and Entrepreneurs. This means that if you’re a new start-up business or know someone who has or is going to start one, I can offer help and support to the individual(s) to get them working and thinking more for themselves.

Services that are as unique as your business


Alleviating Stress

Run your own business? An accidental landlord? Don’t like numbers of spreadsheets? Then this option is for you.

Once a year we collect receipts, bank statements and anything else we need and do all the work for you; produce your tax return and send it to HMRC. No fuss, No frills and most of all NO SURPRISES!


Saving You Money

You’ve been in business for a while, but you are still not sure if it’s all worth it? Want something more than a yearly chat and a large bill at the end of it?

Our quarterly update and collection method works very well for those who are serious about business; reports and regular communications help you keep on top of it all.


Enabling Growth

Has your business taken off like a rocket? Then this option is for you. We can come to your premises and work alongside your existing team.

Options such as weekly or monthly visits to your business mean you and your staff can concentrate on the important things, like running your business.
