From Our Website

We have supported this scheme for many years, and offer special rates to clients running direct payments payrolls, together with flexible out of hours cover if required at no extra cost. Accounting and payroll, NEST, auto enrolment, Libre Office, Microsoft Office, internet and email security, GDPR, backup and data security, movie and photo editing. We provide support by telephone or remote session. If something goes wrong, you need support and you don't want to wait hours for a response. We'll always try our best to help - even out of office hours.


Direct payments are local council payments for people who have been assessed as needing help from social services, and who would like to arrange and pay for their own care and support services instead of receiving them directly from the local council. We have supported this scheme for many years, and offer special rates to clients running direct payments payrolls, together with flexible out of hours cover if required at no extra cost. I have been using ASTL for over 13 years, Christine and Gordon have always dealt with my accounting needs fanatastically and professionally at all times.


Based near Falkirk in Banknock, we repair laptop and desktop computers. Although we started life as a B2B only computer dealer, for several years now we have responded to an increasing demand from home users for antivirus, antimalware, computer repair and internet/email support. We service the local Falkirk, Cumbernauld and Kilsyth areas free of travel charges. Computer hardware and software problems - if a part needs replaced we'll discuss & agree costs with you before proceeding. We operate on a no fix, no fee basis - if your computer can't be economically repaired, you don't pay a penny.


We have over 20 years experience with most popular accounting systems, including several legacy products no longer supported by the companies concerned. We'll help you choose software which will fit your needs without wasting money on features and functionality which you may never use. Sage software dominates the small business accounting and payroll sector, but there are lower cost alternatives which should be considered. Consultancy, sales and full installation including training and ongoing telephone support for small businesses and organisations computerising their accounts for the first time.


We buy from some of the largest trade only distributors in Europe, enabling us to supply quality hardware from all major manufacturers at extremely competitive prices. We supply businesses and home users throughout Central Scotland, including the Edinburgh, Glasgow, Stirling and Falkirk areas, with overnight delivery from our distributor direct to your office or home. Extended maintenance options are available at astonishingly low cost - a fraction of what is charged by the typical high street computer store.


As an alternative to support offerings direct from software vendors, we offer cost-effective telephone and remote support. For example, our rate for Sage Accounts support is 50% of the charge for basic Sagecover. Rather than speaking to a different unqualified person each time you call, your contact is a qualified, highly experienced Chartered Accountant who has a real and practical understanding of the issues involved. We also provide support for Microsoft Office, Open Office, Libre Office, Windows, networks, Thunderbird, Pegasus Mail and ESET NOD32 anti-virus.


In our experience, few users whose computer is subject to virus or malware attack are fully backed up. This means that the typical response of many repairers to a virused machine can spell disaster or severe disappointment, with loss of vital business data or irreplaceable family photographs and videos. We have decades of experience removing viruses and malware safely and completely, and generally the cost is comparable to a re-format and re-install by other repairers. If we can't recover your undamaged data, you don't pay a penny.


Mainstream software is getting more expensive, with most big players moving towards a rental business model. Good for them, not so good for the end user. Microsoft Office 365 is a great product, and many large organisations or those with particular processing requirements use it and pay the monthly cost. The vast majority of small businesses and individual users have another option to consider - Open Source (Free) software. In our experience, good quality Open Source software can also reduce the likelihood of downtime due to software bugs and licensing issues.
