View Profile John Webb John Webb Since 1982 I have owned several small businesses involving the motor industry, financial services , grocery and hospitality sectors.

Being self employed means that for the majority of time you are on your own, through many decision making processes and if you did ask a “professional” opinion, then you got a hefty bill from the “professional” for your trouble

Therefore, I am offering myself as a freelance temp, to help with any business admin issues. Whether that be for an hour, a day, a week or whatever you require to help make your business run efficiently, without the overheads of an additional full/part time staff member.

Bank statements, Data Input, Debtors ,Creditors, GST Returns, PAYE, Systems, meaningful understandable reports, Trial Balance or just general admin, together we can find out what works for you.

My passion is to help small businesses succeed in their field, which can be achieved by analyzing the numbers, looking at the trends and making informed decisions accordingly

I offer a free consultation where we can discuss the highs and lows of your business, formulate a plan make some realistic goals and then put that plan into action

To me, cash flows are the lifeblood of your business…a simple report that shows you where you’ve just been, where you are now and where you are heading. Having your books done as a legal requirement once a year is like the proverbial shutting of the gate after the horse has bolted !

I am a certified member of the NZ Bookkeepers Association and have worked with MYOB, Quickbooks , Banklink and Xero. Whatever your system we can work with it to maximize the profitability in your business.

Give me a call and lets see what transpires.

View Profile Johnny van Wyk Brainy Bookkeeping Here at Brainy HQ we're passionate about working with small business owners to help them achieve their goals. We provide virtual bookkeeping & payroll services to a wide range of NZ businesses, meaning we are not bound by location. We work from home, meaning we can keep overheads as low as possible (so you're not paying for any fancy office space).

I know you didn't get into business to do bookkeeping, but I did, so let's work together and ensure your accounts are accurate and compliant.

I live in the beautiful Hawkes bay with my wife and two little girls, who make life simply beautiful. After finishing my financial qualification, I ran my own boutique accounting firm in South Africa specializing in Forensic Accounting for the first part of my career.

We decided to move our family to NZ, where I worked as a senior accountant for a large audit firm in Hawkes Bay before moving to a large horticultural firm, where I started as a Management Accountant and moved into the position of Financial Controller within a year.

I have a Honours Degree in Financial Accounting and a Masters Degree in Forensic Accounting. I'm a NZ Certified Bookkeeper as well as a Xero Certified Advisor, and I've been in bookkeeping and accounting for as far back as I can remember, it's what my dad did too, so I guess you could say it's in my blood...

I realized there's a need not only for accounting services, but for basic bookkeeping services for small business owners. I know you don't always have the time to do your books, so let me handle it, it's what I do...

View Profile Julie Russell Julie Russell Bookkeeping After a time in the Travel Industry, I spent several years working in and eventually running my own pub in the south of England. But I soon found out I preferred balancing the books instead of the beer barrels, so I went for a lifestyle change and worked for a provincial Accountants for 3 years.During that time I passed the City & Guilds Bookkeeping I, II & III qualifications - the highest available in the UK. However the pull of working for myself soon returned, so I merged the love of the smell of bitter and my bookkeeping skills, and started my own business looking after other landlords accounts.

Soon after, I met my husband (yet another kiwi on an extended OE) who promptly whisked me back to New Zealand, made me fall in love with the country, and we returned shortly afterwards as a family. Julie Russell Bookkeeping has been operating in and around the North Shore since 2006, and has clients ranging from one-man-bands to global firms; from Interior Designers to Theatre Companies.

View Profile Julie Seevens CommonCents Solutions Limited Julie has over twenty years’ experience doing accounts and payroll and is passionate about this line of work. She is a certified member of the NZ Bookkeepers Association and has a Certificate in Business Studies from Massey University. Growing up with parents who were small business owners she saw first-hand how much time “doing the books” can take you away from your core business and other commitments.

Time spent following up on late payers, reconciling accounts, and the general day to day accounts and payroll work can be better utilised in growing your business and having much needed “down” time to enjoy the things you like to do. Because life isn’t just about hard work, it’s about having fun too.

View Profile Komal Chhiba Komal Chhiba - Small Business Accounting Support I have been working with small businesses for over 10 years and understand the challenges involved in running a business. I have learned that everyone runs their own businesses differently. Many owners are so focused on the service they provide or the product they are selling, that understanding the numbers gets pushed to the bottom of the list of priorities. Until, of course, the rent needs paying!

So I have built my business on listening to what you want from yours, and then giving you a number-crunching service to match it. I offer everything from 'how-do-I?' advice, to "I really don't want to know - you do it" service. I have a Bachelor of Commerce and Administration in Accountancy (BCA) and work with Chartered Accountants as needed. I don’t talk Accountants-Speak (although I can when I have to), and I don’t charge accountants prices.
My aim is to make your life easier by making sense of all those bank statements, paid and unpaid bills, GST and PAYE returns. With a bit of number crunching, I can also help you ensure your business is focussed on profitability and stays in the right direction. I can get your business finances in great shape to send to your Accountant for your end of year financial reports or help you with a short term need, such as understanding your costs and margins better or the impact of altering your products or services. Contact me today about what you need and let me help you get back to business.

View Profile Kylie Crawford KC Bookkeeping Limited As a young girl I always asked Santa for paper and pens for Christmas so I could do maths. My love for numbers has never faded. Also being raised on a dairy farm, I saw the pressures of running the farm, and at the end of a long day there were still the books to do. I decided to put my love of numbers to good use and help others with their bookkeeping requirements. I work remotely on the cloud and try to run a paperless office.

My main areas of expertise are the rural sector (dairy farming throughout my family), rental income (have owned rentals for a number of years), and inventory management and compliance (Diploma in Logistics and Supply Chain Management).

I can help you with GST, FBT, AR, AP, Bank reconciliations, Payroll, IR3's, IR4's, submit end of year accounts to your Accountant for authorisation, and much more.

Member Testimonial Carla Jehle - Sound Choice Business Care "I had a fantastic conference – didn't know the last year's conference could be topped. It was so inspiring and forward thinking. Thanks so much for all your hard work to make this happen."

Relationship Manager Inland Revenue New Zealand "Inland Revenue has been working closely with the newly founded NZBAI and continue to offer our support to professional associations whose members positively assist businesses with their tax compliance."

Joanna Harlick Transfigure Limited "When I first decided to be a bookkeeper after being an "accountant" for 27 years, I felt I was taking a step back in my career and was filled with doubt and worry but I still took that step. Then I discovered NZBAI, I cannot tell you how wonderful it was to find an organisation that makes you feel like you're an important (if not the most important) cog in the business owners life. It would have made that first step far easier if I'd known about this organisation before I jumped. So I think it's important to get the word out to as many bookkeepers as possible to let them know they can belong to an organisation that will support their journey and people they can follow to act as their mentors. I know I've appreciated it very much!"

Linda Klox Klox Business Solutions "Superb network to ask questions, get solid answers and encouragement."

Vicki Turner ActiveNumbers "It is great to re ignite my membership with the NZ Bookkeepers Association after a couple of years away. I previously made the decision not to renew my membership but the growth and development of the Association over recent times, has overturned that decision. The expertise and knowledge of the community is extensive and the generosity to share those attributes is awesome and very welcome. Even though I have been in the bookkeeping industry for several years, I am always learning and seeking advice. Being part of this Association gives me credibility and security that I have access to research and education; learning what I don’t know! #lovethebookkeepingcommunity"

Lori Mahony Lori Mahony Hello, just a quick email to express my gratitude to the NZBAI. I am new to bookkeeping and have just started my own business with the help of a franchisor. Your newsletter is fantastic and I love reading it as it always has helpful advice and tips about bookkeeping. I think the whole association is wonderful and I am so happy we have support from you guys.Thanks!"
