Happy clients

I am forever grateful for the day one of my colleagues referred me to Kerry Hargreaves for bookkeeping services. Kerry streamlined my bookkeeping processes and installed user-friendly software solutions. I haven’t felt stressed about bookkeeping issues since 😊 Ten years later, I consider Kerry an important player in my business. She is honest, responsive, reliable and has a dry and wicked sense of humour that makes bookkeeping “nearly” seem like fun!

Kerry is proactive, professional and delivers her work efficiently, on time and with little to no hassle. Kerry has saved me a lot of time from an accounting perspective and I look forward to my long association with her in the coming years.

What we do

Let us ease the burden of financial record keeping and bookkeeping, allowing you to keep your business running smoothly and profitably.

By acting as your hands-on financial manager, we’ll provide you with regular reports, so you know exactly how your business is performing. Using solid financials as a base for decision making, we can help you work smarter, not harder.

We can save you money and improve your cashflow by ensuring your invoices are sent out promptly and can also assist with account collection calls.

As a registered BAS agent, we can also ensure you pay the correct amount of tax and gst at the correct time. Did you know you automatically get a payment extension if your BAS is lodged by a registered BAS agent?

We’re flexible and can work remotely or onsite at your premises – or a combination of the two.  And you can rest assured that all remote work is completed by us in our office in Capalaba, so your confidential information remains secure.

Our services

Why use a bookkeeper?

When dealing with the day to day demands of running a business, the “important but not urgent” tasks often get put aside. Making sure your accounts are current and up to date is definitely important – but often not seen as urgent until the BAS is due! We can take care of this for you, making sure your accounts are reconciled and your books are always up to date. As your hands-on financial manager, we also provide you with the financial reporting you need to make informed business decisions.

Your Bookkeeping is Our Little Secret

One of the most important aspects of our service is the absolute confidentially we maintain for all our clients. As a registered BAS agent, we are governed by a strict code of conduct as established by the Tax Practitioners Board. You can rest assured that your financial information remains safe and secure at all times, shared only with you and your accountant.
