Norfolk Bookkeeping Service

About Morphry Thyme

Morphry Thyme is an outsourced cloud-based finance team undertaking bookkeeping and associated services for small businesses based in Norfolk. We use QuickBooks Online and Xero cloud accounting systems. This enables us to offer a range of streamlined bookkeeping services and accounts management.

Ben and the team have accumulated over 20 years of experience within the accounting industry. This includes 10 years using cloud-based accounting systems such as QuickBooks Online and Xero online accounting software. Following the introduction of Making Tax Digital (MTD) in April 2022, Ben and the team have undertaken training with QuickBooks Online to become Advanced Certified ProAdvisors. In addition, they have also completed Xero Certified Advisor training.

As certified advisors of both QuickBooks and Xero we are happy to discuss the requirements you have and recommend the best accounting software for you and your business. We can even set up your new software and provide training, or to save even more time we can even do your bookkeeping for you!

If you would like to find out more about switching to a cloud-based software please get in touch, we would be happy to help!

Who are we?

Morphry Thyme was launched in August 2021 by our director, Ben Aldridge. 

Ben started working in accountancy practice after leaving school, before moving to work as a Finance Manager for an owner managed business in 2017.  He enjoyed the work he did for this company, however, missed working with multiple businesses. During the COVID lockdowns many people enjoyed having more free time. After some initial research, Ben identified that there are many small business owners that spend lots of their own time undertaking their company bookkeeping and accounts. Furthermore, a lot of these small businesses would benefit from having support to keep their financial records in good order and also to keep an eye on their business performance, but they are not big enough to employ someone on a full or part-time basis. So, Ben launched Morphry Thyme.  His goal being to provide outsourced bookkeeping and accounts support to small business owners. Therefore, giving them more free time to do the things they enjoy.

Since it’s launch, Morphry Thyme has grown rapidly. Ben has taken pride in building a team who have a range of different skills and experience, this enables us to be best placed to work with a wide range of clients. As of February 2024, our team includes 2 Management Accountants, 1 Accounts Assistant, 2 Bookkeepers, 
1 HR & Marketing Co-Ordinator, and 1 Business Administrator. 

We are proud that the team at Morphry Thyme were announced as a Finalist for Bookkeeping Team of the Year 2023.
 We are absolutely blown away to have been shortlisted for such a prestigious award, especially given the volume of nominations.

Why are we different?

Bookkeepers At Your Service, Whenever You Need Us

Whilst there is a traditional view of accountants and bookkeepers, we try to be a bit different! We’re on the end of a phone if you need us, can be used as a sounding board for a business idea you have or in some instances, provide a set of ears for a business owner to let off some steam!

Specialists in Cloud Accounting, QuickBooks Online & Xero Accounting Software

Our specialism is in Cloud accounting, something which has really grown over the last few years due to the pandemic (people working from home) and legislative changes (Making Tax Digital from HMRC).  We have worked with Cloud Accounting systems for the last 10 years, specialising in QuickBooks Online and Xero.

Day-To-Day Finance Management - Just Not Tax!

Tax isn’t our thing – we leave that to the specialists.  We are here for the day-to-day finance function, so we’ll always look at the commercial reasons behind a transaction, not just the tax implications.  Whilst making sure you are tax efficient is important, it’s also essential to do what is right for you, your business, and your staff.

People set up in business for different reasons, we’re here to support them all on their journey by ensuring their bookkeeping isn’t something they need to worry about.
