Kathy-maree from Books Alive Bookkeeping has been working with my business since May 2013.  As a new business owner I required the services of Kathy-maree through recommendation of my accountant.

Kathy-maree has helped me organise the business, sort out the confusion of owning a new business and set up systems with MJM Smash Repairs, including the introduction of Xero Accounting Software.

Due to the processes put in place by Kathy-maree I am able to work in my business and on my business with ease and we are now moving forward.

Kathy-maree and I have been a Team now for 18 months.  I tried to work on my books and my business and had met Kathy-maree a few years prior.  I wanted to work in my business more so I contacted Kathy-maree to help me sort out my bookkeeping.  In that time we have built a strong relationship and my trust to leave my business with her when I have a holiday proves this.  My business is now growing and with the help of Kathy-maree and Books Alive Bookkeeping I am on Xero Accounting and have great systems in place.  Thank you.
