I wonder what they charge for bookeeping! Hopefully their rates aren't shocking.

I drove past this sign on the side of the building for a chartered accountant in Thomastown, which made me laugh and I thought others might enjoy it. I've never seen a chartered accountant or business adviser offer bookeeping services before, but there's always a first. So if your accounts are haunting you, perhaps this is the chartered accountant for you.

PPS. One reader advised me the spelling in the above for bookkeeper is incorrect, which of course is a correct observation. They had not noticed the sign, which the accountant no doubt paid good money to have made. The sign would have been checked by the graphic designer, printer and the accountants themselves and all had failed to pick up the spelling error of bookkeeper, which should have been bookkeeper. I found this amusing but perhaps that's just my ghoulish sense of humour;-)
