What I do


I work exclusively with Xero for accounting. This can include:

  • reconciliation of transactions.
  • processing of bills from Dext to Xero.
  • Setting up invoices (including repeating invoices).
  • Sending statements to customers.
  • GST returns.
  • and much more, depending on your needs.

If you use a different accounting system (or don’t have one yet), and would like to use Xero, I can assist with this.

I use Dext (formerly Receipt Bank) for automated bill processing to Xero.

Ad hoc accounting or administration

I am available for one-off or contract work. This includes working with spreadsheets. Please get in touch to discuss options.

Pricing and how it works

I work remotely.

We can communicate by phone, email, text, and video call. In-person meetings are also available in Dunedin (over coffee).

Fixed monthly fee

There is a fixed monthly fee of $50 + GST per calendar month. This includes:

  • Use of Dext, email at any time, and text communications, and phone/video calls of 5-10 minutes in working hours. Any work that needs to be done as a result of these conversations are charged at the hourly rate.
  • Mid-month and end of month email updates to you about your accounting and what needs to be done, and what information I need to do it.

Hourly rate

My hourly rate is $45 + GST per hour. Fees are invoiced for the calendar month and due by the 10th of the month following.

Rates are reviewed annually.
