Meet the SAPB Bookkeeping Team
I have an excess of 30 Years working experience in bookkeeping and administration, mainly within the engineering and manufacturing sectors. During this time I progressed from office junior at Kinning’s of Southport to financial controller for the entire UK subsidiary for the SureTank group.
After deciding to become the master of my own destiny, I set up as SAPB. Having seen a gap in the market between accountancy and the average bookkeeping service available in Southport. I knew I could fill that gap and give small businesses and sole traders in Southport the benefits of a larger bookkeeping organisation with added local business knowledge and an individual touch, only a small locally based bookkeeper could provide.
I aim to provide a high-quality of service across all aspects bookkeeping, credit control and general accounting with the aim tp help businesses function better, more profitably and with greater scope to grow and prosper.

My passions include my beautiful dogs, my numerous beautiful shoes and shall I say the odd handbag! Away from bookkeeping I enjoy a good bit of banter and can't wait for the for the Formula One season to start so I can see my wonderful David Coulthard once more!

Manda Shaw (Bookkeeper)
I have over 8 years experience working within business administration with both small and medium sized business. During these formative admin years I have covered accounts, payroll and general admin but I’d have to say that my talents lay in organisation.
Our services are all about offering the absolute best levels of outsourced accounting and bookkeeping at a cost effect price. The efficiency of the entire team is key to this being achieved and where I feel I excel (pardon the pun). I help to organise our workload so that SAPB can deliver the best quality bookkeeping, administration, VAT and Payroll services to businesses in and around my local area of Southport.

My non-bookkeeping passions centre around three things. Clothes, my gorgeous dogs and Trucks! A perfect evening in for me would involve my dogs and as many episodes of ice road truckers as we could lay our paws on! Continuing with the truck theme, last year I met the stars of TV show Lizardlick, Amy and Ronnie at truckfest, a great honour! I have the sweatshirts and all to prove it.

Sarah (Administrative Assistant)
I previously worked with Sue at SureTank UK’s accounting department supporting her varied bookkeeping role covering everything from general accountancy and credit control to payroll and VAT returns
When a chance came to work with Sue again at SAPB, I jumped in feet first and haven't looked back. I and can say with all honesty I love supporting both Sue and Manda in helping businesses across Southport with their accountancy needs and contributing to providing a truly professional service often at the same time as often reducing their costs. In the future, I hope to help SAPB grow and develop both my skills and qualifications within bookkeeping further.

Away from accounts and payroll, my life is pretty dull! Music festivals, blingy dresses and Saturday morning nails and brows. The Problem is this just can't compare to the thrill of a VAT rebate, the fast pace of a late Self-Assessment submission or the excitement of chasing down a late payer acting on behalf of our clients as their credit control!
My passion when outdoors is offroading! I love a good land rover with high water exhaust fitted!
