A simpler approach to bookkeeping


It’s too easy to deprioritise the small but vital parts of running your business.

Take bookkeeping for instance. There’s no mystery to it, but when do you find the time? Jotting down those expenses, filing receipts, making sure your invoices are recorded correctly? So come the tax deadline, you’re frantically searching for receipts and filling in spreadsheets at 11pm.

Pass your bookkeeping to us and breathe a sigh of relief. We’ll help you prepare and collate your expenses, look after your payroll and support your tax returns.

A flexible approach to bookkeeping

Unlike employing an extra person to join your team, you pay for just the work you need. So if it’s ongoing support with expenses collation, payroll support once a month or one-off help to submit your tax return, tell us what you need and we’ll pair you with the right person for the job.

Friendly and approachable, we go out of our way to avoid jargon and accounting-speak, so you’re informed and in control of what’s going on in your business.

Just because an employee is sitting in your office, does not mean work is being done. The real test of whether your bookkeeper is doing their job, however, is in the performance of your business. And with virtual bookkeepers, you no longer have to provide the desk…or the chair…or a computer…or the training…or the employer taxes. If you still worry whether work is being completed, online software (like Xero Online) include a login record and audit trail, so you can see when your bookkeeper logs in and what they are doing.

Virtual bookkeepers can be contacted via all sorts of different methods. For example, you can chat with them, email them, call them, text them, Skype them, or even use the built-in communication tools within your online accounting software (where applicable). We also encourage some face-to-face meetings.

We work with your existing accountant (or help find you one) so you can pay the accountant to do what they do best and let us handle the day-to-day activities for less than the cost of an in-house employee. Working with external accountants provides protection and accountability for you, and for us.
