Forty Years Bookselling

Late Summer 1974 our founder Roger Bernard Crossland started as a Bookseller with WH Smith in Leeds, West Yorkshire, employed by them as a Trainee Manager. By 1987 he had instead opened his very own Bookshop in a suburb of Leeds, 10 years later trebling the size of that, by moving into larger premises across the road. He launched the Bookshop Website in 1999 becoming the very first to sell Book Tokens online and in 2004 moved that operation to the East Yorkshire Coast, as a completely seperate entity, still thriving and run by him today. Currently just as many Theatre Tokens are sold as Book Tokens, those particularly being dispatched all over the world, to purchase Theatre Tickets mainly for London's West End. First for Book Tokens and Foremost for Theatre Tokens, that will always be from our very own

Northern Ireland Accountants - new service

CASNI is a charity based in Derry City and provides community accountancy services to support the voluntary sector within Northern Ireland. WHAT WE CAN OFFER YOU: As well as providing accounting, our site also allows you access to a resource library of information about your accounts & what you need to do, plus advice around financial management & compliance. Brought to you by your local Community Accountant Martin Crossland. ACCOUNTS PREPARATION: Unlike many Commercial Accountants who charge clients by the hour, we offer a simple affordable method. Our charges are based on your individual needs & requirements, agreed before any work is undertaken. No matter how much work is needed to be done the fee will remain the same, therefore making this service very affordable, particularly to small groups, voluntary organisations and newly registered charities. PAYROLL: We can also provide you with payroll services for as little as £6 per month each employee all in. This includes all elements of payroll processing, paying staff direct & dealing with statutory elements to the Inland Revenue including year end returns, P11d's, P60's etc... BOOKKEEPING SERVICES: Every voluntary organisation has different ways in which they want their finances represented through book-keeping systems. CASNI prides itself on being able to provide either manual or computerised systems that are tailored around your specific needs. We offer a wide range of services particularly to groups, voluntary organisations, registered charities and social enterprises, those with an annual turnover of up to £500,000. For the services shown below we guarantee new customers that we will always beat the price you are currently paying, on the production to us of your last annual accountancy invoices. ACCOUNTS PREPARATION FOR SMALLER GROUPS: With so many small groups out there, who have income of less than £5,000 and are unable to pay to have accounts prepared in a correct format or to support existing or new funding applications, we can now prepare your accounts COMPLETELY FREE OF CHARGE. If you are interested in this service, then please call Martin Crossland the Accountant direct on 07793 680 821 for further information. BY PAYING LESS FEES THIS MEANS YOU GET TO KEEP MORE OF YOUR MONEY: All groups, volutary organisations and registered charities with an annual turnover of between £10,000 and £500,000 are required to produce accounts, to provide them not only with up to date financial information, but also to assist them in obtaining further grant funding as well as complying with their statutory obligations as outlined by both Charity and Company Law. At CASNI we offer an affordable method based on the individual needs of the client, therefore making this service affordable to all without impacting on vital free reserves. Why pay commercial accountants who charge fixed hourly rates? INDEPENDENT EXAMINATIONS: If your annual turnover exceeds £10,000 per year and is less than £500,000 then you are legally required to have your accounts independently examined and prepared, by someone who is qualified to do so. Many voluntary groups believe that their treasurer, banker or even best friend can do this for them, but it is not the case. Visit us online to find out more about how we can help.

Our Carbon Footprint

The global retailer that cares about its customers and environment:

To help reduce the carbon footprint of our business, the webhosting we use to get our Bookshop online, operates with 100% wind turbine power. Most of our other sites are hosted in a similar way, but not all of them. The programme we have used to design the majority of the websites which we run, is a very simple one, as we do not wish to complicate things and for us to just uninspiringly take on the look of one of the many, many other domains that offer similar services to ourselves. Dare to be different and you shall see the rewards, is a motto of our founder, who has remained firm with the same programming now for fifteen years, after reading a review once saying that although it is not a revered form of web building tool and loathed by many, those that stick with it and make it their own, shall have great success. Many cannot understand why we do so very well with what we offer, perhaps that is one of the reasons, however because your satisfaction is our future, we have also offered unrivalled customer service to all whom have supported us since the very start. That personal touch, it matters more today than it ever has done before. Plus we care about the environment too, in more ways than there is space to list in full here, but we will briefly mention just one more fact and this is that when you call us by telephone to order, we re-use for this purpose a sheet of A4 paper that has one blank unused side, carrying some previous correspondence on the other side that has been already dealt with. This means that no A4 paper from our office goes into the trash or shredder, being half used ever !
