WHAT IS THE MANDELBROT CLUB AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
Michael is an experienced business entrepreneur, small company manager and regular volunteer for financial roles in charities. The Mandelbrot Club runs a group of activities including maths coaching, money coaching, business support and book-keeping.
Ekaterina has worked for one of the largest railway builders in Russia as their senior financial manager before she was thirty. She has now settled in the North East and is working with the Mandelbrot Club in book-keeping for external clients.
At the moment we use Office 365 which includes Excel and Onedrive. All reputable accounting software packages have a facility for importing data from Excel. In our case we can in addition do the book-keeping directly into Sage Line 50 if required.
After initial phone or email contact, we recommend that we meet to discuss what needs doing and to what degree this can be done remotely. At this point there is no charge for time, only travel and subsistence based on standard class train fares.
After that discussion we agree a fixed number of hours per month for the first six months; typically this might be 15 hours.
Both Ekaterina and Michael are charged at £15/hr. This covers their wages, national insurance where applicable, auto-enrolment pension contribution and overheads.
Hence 15 hours per month would mean £225/month
