Meet Rachel Roden,

Director of Agility Bookkeeping Ltd

When Rachel embarked on her journey as a self-employed bookkeeper in 2009, she had a clear ambition: she wanted to assist SMEs, startups, and sole traders struggling with daily bookkeeping. While she had her financial goals and ambitions documented, reality posed different challenges.

The road to acquiring those initial clients wasn’t smooth. The first few years also saw her navigating through tight financial corners. But what set Rachel apart was her unwavering determination to get the job done!

Soon, under the guidance of a pivotal business advisor, Rachel transitioned her business operations, starting Agility Bookkeeping in 2015, with a greater focus on small limited companies.

She tapped into their need for managing day-to-day paperwork and transformed their chaotic financial records. Today, she assists midsize firms and startups with their bookkeeping, payroll, and cash flow needs.

Her dedication and prowess in her field haven’t gone unnoticed. In 2023, she proudly made it as a finalist for the “Bookkeeper of the Year” at the IAB Awards, a testament to her commitment to excellence.

Rachel believes that the road to business success isn’t easy or swift. It demands financial and mental preparedness. Above all, she emphasises the importance of a strong support network – both personal and professional.

Agility Bookkeeping is a member of the Institute Of Accountants And Bookkeepers (IAB).

This renowned organisation closely monitors our bookkeeping practices, ensuring we are in line with AML regulations and are continually updated with the most recent industry insights and qualifications.
