Two sisters, one vision

The founders of SortMyBooks are on a journey to empower business owners to be in full financial control.

Our Story

Prior to founding SortMyBooks, Anne and Aileen worked in a busy accounting practice, taking business owners’ shoe boxes full of receipts and turning them into VAT Returns, Year End Accounts and Tax Returns.

Yet they despaired as highly skilled business owners grappled with their accountant’s jargon-laden descriptions of their business performance – and a figure they hadn’t expected to owe the tax man.

Unprepared for a tax bill, some business owners sought a loan, while others were forced to re-mortgage the family home.

Anne and Aileen quickly identified the need for real-time financial information, and armed with a vision that every business owner would know exactly where they stood financially at all times, they created SortMyBooks, a user-friendly, informative, accounting software package that provides the ultimate in empowerment for any SME.

Today, SortMyBooks is also accompanied by a robust training program and ongoing support to deliver Anne and Aileen’s vision.

It is Anne & Aileen’s experience that most SMEs would love to embrace modern technology. It is a question of showing them, and how it will impact on their most precious commodity – time! It’s the sisters’ greatest ambition to show business owners how they can gain back precious time for themselves and their families.
