We use Nicola’s services on a weekly basis for all the financial aspects of our café including payroll, entering and paying the bills, and weekly bank reconciliations with Xero. Our accounts are always up to date and she is able to provide us with easy-to-read management reports, just a few days after month end.

Our suppliers have also benefitted from Nicola’s services. Payments are now always up to date and they are provided with a nice and easy to read remittance advice slips which, they say, make their life so much easier, as they know exactly what each payment is for.

We have found Nicola to be highly organised, very efficient, thorough and great at following up. She is friendly, personable and most importantly, reliable. We have been more than satisfied with Nicola’s efforts since we opened our small business and we highly recommend her services.

Nicola has been our Financial Controller since 2015 and she does the job quickly and properly, and the accuracy of her work is amazing.

Our accounts are the most organised they have ever been, and she has implemented several automated systems which have improved customer service as well as saving us time and money.  She also responds to email enquiries from our customers fast.

The best part is that having Nicola as our Financial Controller has given our management time to work on the business, rather than in the business, and as a result these past few years have been the best since we were established in 1997.

I would definitely recommend Nicola to anyone looking for an accurate, efficient and/or caring bookkeeper, who is keen to do what’s required to get the job done.

Chatby Lane in Lorne, along the Great Ocean Road, offers affordable luxury boutique accommodation within 10 apartments.  Karen Breen has been running the business since 2008 and is proud of receiving years of great feedback.

Nicola started working for me in 2015 and since then she’s taken away a lot of the stress of running a small business.  She does all my bookkeeping from paying the bills to doing the pays, and of course the BAS and other compliance obligations – all I have to do is take photos of all my bills and receipts and send them into the cloud! 

I find Xero extremely user-friendly and I love how it helps ensure we don’t miss a thing.  But the best part of Nicola’s service is the easy to understand profit & loss reports she sends me every month, and particularly her dot point summaries of the key things to note.  

I therefore now have the information I need, and the extra time in my week, to allow me to focus on improving my bottom line.

Business partners Greg Jury and Stephen Brooks launched the Bottlepops business in 2014 and were joined by Andrew Banks and Steve Baxter in 2015 after a successful pitch on Shark Tank Australia.  They sell talking bottle openers which are sold online and in retail stores around Australia and overseas.

Although we work an hour away from each other, cloud-based technology enables Nicola to do all our bookkeeping remotely each week, meaning our books are always up to date.

Having used a number of bookkeepers over the years, I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the quality of Nicola’s work and how easy she is to work with – she is definitely the best bookkeeper we’ve ever had!  She’s set up a number of systems and processes to streamline our business, and after cleaning up our Xero data, she now keeps it squeaky clean.  During our regular Skype calls, she quickly runs through her queries and lets me know what documentation is missing, which helps her stay on top of everything despite my very hectic schedule.

I would thoroughly recommend her to any small to medium sized business.
