Jo Roome Now Has a Room!

A Ruddington based accountancy business which is going from strength to strength has now moved to village centre premises.

After a period operating from home, Jo Roome has her own new office in ‘The Ruddington Business Rooms’ at the corner of High Street and Kirk Lane. “I got the keys on the 25th of August and you can now find me at Room 1, 27A High Street, above JP Lettings” says Jo. “Working from home is great but there are so many distractions and people around. I knew pretty early on that I wanted to get off the dining table and into an office, I was just waiting for the right one. An office in Ruddington means I can walk to work and I’m close to school for the school run.”

Jo has been specialising in accountancy since leaving school at the age of 16 and worked at a couple of firms in Nottingham before becoming a self-employed bookkeeper and working with a company of Chartered Accountants in Dronfield. After first starting ‘Bookkeeping With Jo’ in Ruddington in 2019, just a year later she was already a ‘Small Business 100’ winner, a ‘Theo Paphitis Small Business Sunday’ winner and was crowned ‘Queen of Finances’ in 2020! She rebranded as ‘Jo Roome Chartered Certified Accountants’ in May 2021.

“When I was offering courses, a lot of people wanted to hire an accountant” explains Jo. “I still offer training to clients and those who want to do their own bookkeeping, but many business owners are taking advantage of our virtual finance function so we do everything for them and they can concentrate on running their business.”

Jo offers help with self-assessment, accounts, Corporation Tax and payroll, bookkeeping and company secretarial services. “Our virtual finance function means that you dont have to hire a bookkeeper, accountant, financial controller, financial director as we do all this for you in one package. Making Tax Digital for Income Tax Self Assessment is coming.  This means that, instead of one tax return a year, you will have to complete quarterly statements with an annual declaration.  Hiring an accountant means that not only do you have peace of mind, but you have more time to focus on your business.”

Away from work, Jo says she enjoys spending time with her family: “We love to walk and have climbed Snowdon, Scafell Pike and Ben Nevis this year. When not walking I love to read and support the Nottingham Panthers.”
