About Alison

Alison has been a Navy wife for almost 25 years. Having had various jobs over the years, including working in administrative roles and event management to name a few, Alison literally fell into bookkeeping in 2008 purely by chance – she was helping a friend out with her business accounts and discovered a passion for it, and hasn’t looked back since.

In 2010, during a 3-year posting to Washington DC, Alison decided to get some proper bookkeeping qualifications under her belt, sitting her exams in the British Embassy.

On her return to the UK in 2013, Alison set up her own business – as a military spouse with young children, and with a husband often on deployment, she needed to be able to work flexibly and setting up her own business, where she was in full control of her work-life balance, was the most logical thing.

Originally, the plan had been to work just a few hours a week doing something she loved, but 9 years on, Simply Balanced Solutions is a multi-award-winning business, employing 4 members of staff, and with a client base right across the UK.

About Simply Balanced Solutions

The unofficial company motto, “Accounts you can swear by, and not at!” underpins the ethos of the service they provide.

Very few people go into business to do paperwork. Often, they are terrified of HMRC, especially, the consequences of getting things wrong. Too many business owners spend their weekends and evenings catching up on paperwork, not really knowing if they are making money and worrying what their next tax bill will be.

Simply Balanced Solutions take that fear away by providing easy-to-use systems, as well as tailored accounts support to business owners using language they understand.
