The history of Starbooks is the story of our MD Vicki Longmore.
Starbooks Ltd was founded and is still run by Vicki, who started out as an accounts assistant in the manufacturing industry. She honed her accounts and bookkeeping skills in a very busy environment and she quickly learned the bookkeeping basics.
Vicki became ICB (Institute of Certified Bookkeepers) qualified in July 2001 and in 2004 Vicki started her own ICB licensed bookkeeping practice.
Over the next few years Vicki single handedly developed her business into a professional bookkeeping practice and she continued with her professional development and delighting her clients.
In 2016 Starbooks Ltd was incorporated and with the assistance of her tech-savvy partner Barry Fender and lots of social media activity. Starbooks has been at the forefront of the digital revolution which is changing the landscape of the accountancy and bookkeeping industry.
