Boogles Founder Entrepreneur, Lisa Newton wins BKN Award

Boogles Ltd have for the second year in a row scooped the award of Accounting Franchisor of the Year, as hosted by BKN (The Bookkeepers Network), and backed by the votes of fellow book-keepers, accountants, business owners and members of The Network. Founder and Director of Boogles, Lisa Newton said, “It’s an exciting time for us. We’re now able to offer a starter package with no initial up front fee to bookkeepers who want to join us.”

Boogles Ltd, established in 2004 with a modest £150 capital (£100 from Lisa’s overdraft and £50 from her mum) employs around 20 staff and is being franchised across the UK.

Lisa, a member of CoreLegal added: “There’s a huge demand for competent, reliable bookkeepers at the moment. You’ve got new solicitors starting up all the time. And existing ones who have realised they can cut costs by switching to a flexible service like ours.” Boogles offer bookkeeping services on or off site, accounts software training and solicitors accounts rules courses. Newton, who has also written a book called How To Start Your Own Bookkeeping Business added: “Bookkeeping for solicitors is quite a niche area. We have training in place to assist those who want to specialise in this type of work and we provide them with the marketing support.”

The skills shortage in law firms is the biggest threat to handling cybercrime

CLC Roundtable discussion at Malmaison Hotel, Charterhouse Square

The skills shortage in our businesses is the biggest threat to our industry when looking at cybercrime. Cybercriminals are not just after money but are looking for sensitive information too, so the legal services sector is an obvious target. In the last year we have had reports of around £7m of client money being lost to such crime. This is not an IT issue and it should not be left to the IT teams to sort out. It is a high-level responsibility and a board-level issue that must be taken seriously. We suspect that we will look back on 2016 and ask why we didn’t respond quicker.
