What is bookkeeping?
Bookkeeping is the process of recording and reporting information about an organisation’s financial activities. Bookkeeping records important pieces of information such as sales and expenses, assets and liabilities.
Good bookkeeping practices mean your business maintains accurate records and makes sure that there are no discrepancies between what an organisation reports to the outside world and what actually happens within.
Why should I hire someone to do it for me?
You might ask yourself why a business needs to hire a bookkeeper. Why would you need someone to record and keep track of your finances, rather than do it yourself?
Alongside the legal requirements for you to accurately file these records with the IRD so that you pay the proper amount of GST, a key benefit is that you have someone keeping track of your money so that you can make sure you’re not spending more than you have coming in.
This is especially important if you’re a small business owner because it can be hard to keep track of everything when you're wearing all the hats. Give yourself one less headache, and gift yourself back some admin time.

Bank reconciliation? Let us help!
Performing a bank reconciliation is a necessary chore for all business owners. Essentially, you compare your record of sales and expenses against the records your bank has because bank statements are reliable financial records. The purpose of a bank reconciliation includes finding and fixing any errors, identifying wrong payments, tracking profitability rather than relying on your gut feeling, and getting prepared for tax filing.
Struggling with GST returns?
Goods and Services Tax (GST) is a tax on most goods and services sold by businesses. While it feels like a tax on businesses, it really isn’t - it’s paid by people living out their day-to-day lives.
Businesses act like tax collectors for the government – charging an additional 15% on top of each sale, which they later forward to Inland Revenue.
A business’s process of forwarding the GST to the government is called a GST Return. In New Zealand, GST filing frequency is monthly, 2-monthly, or 6-monthly. Your annual turnover will help you to determine your GST filing frequency.
