Kaitara Bookkeeping Services

Business can be such a balancing act.  Not just balancing the books, but all the things you have on the go as a small business owner too.  It can be a constant juggle where either things don’t get done or you work all hours.​

At Kaitara Bookkeeping my goal is to help you spend less time managing the books and more time living your life.  I specialise in working with small businesses who want a safe set of hands to look after all their bookkeeping and financial administration needs.​

About Kaitara Bookkeeping Services.

Hi, I’m Liz.

When I was younger my Dad ran his own drain-laying business. He would get up at the crack of dawn and work all day, only to come home and spend his evenings and weekends doing invoicing and managing the books. Mainly because he didn’t trust anyone else to do it. I think this was where my interest in bookkeeping began.  And the desire to be a safe set of hands to help small business owners release the burden of managing their finances and have better work / life balance.

I’ve been working in accounts administration since I left school (let’s just say that was 15-20 years ago).  When COVID-19 arrived it gave me the nudge to take the leap and set up my own bookkeeping business because I could see that there would be a lot of businesses needing support. Nothing pleases me more than well managed, up-to-date financial records. Except knowing that I’m helping my clients not just manage their financial record keeping, but to have more quality time with their family and to do the things they want to do in life, rather than what they have to do for their business.

When I’m not balancing the books, you’ll find me out in the garden or spending time with my son and partner.

  • Receipts sitting in a shoebox or shoved in a drawer to deal with ‘one day’?

  • Know you should be doing something with your financial records, but not sure what that is?

I don’t have a ‘one-size fits all’ approach.  Every client has a tailored package as every business is different.
