When I started my current business – Penati Crackers – I decided that I wanted the flexibility to be able to work from anywhere in the world. Part of this process was having a good bookkeeper to attend to the accounting tasks like GST, tax payments, and other issues that pop up from time to time.

My first bookkeeping company didn’t work out too well and after about 8 months I started looking for a new company that would meet my expectations.
And low and behold, Leah Keown popped up one day. I’ve been thrilled with her service, knowledge on Xero and other bookkeeping practices and her ability to get things done in a timely and cost effective manner.

Leah has literally saved me thousands of dollars per year by speeding up processes and thereby charging less time.
I’m particularly relieved that when I can’t do my sales and invoicing for a day, or if I want a break for a week or two Leah can step in at short notice and perform these tasks seamlessly.
If your books are keeping you awake at night – give Leah a call, she’s incredibly professional, practical and approachable.

“For years our business tediously and laboriously did our own books and for years the toil felt worth it; however, once we made the shift to Leah Keown, we would never go back. Not only has she freed up valuable time to be used elsewhere, the reliability and peace of mind knowing she is on top of all of our bookkeeping needs unburdens mental time and stress. Her first step was moving us to a more efficient platform. Then as she progressed with organizing our affairs, she began managing our payments, cash flow, reports and any other odds and ends we required. We now have far more time in hours and more importantly, mental space to focus on growing our business rather than simply keeping it running. Her dedication and trustworthiness puts us at ease knowing we are in safe hands. Thank you Leah, we look forward to a long and growing business relationship.” Jim Woods -Director-Beauline International 2018 Ltd.

LIFESAVER – Leah has been working with us since May 2018 and I do not know how we managed before we were referred to her. Leah helps with product solutions and streamlining all of our Bookkeeping, making my job so much easier to manage on a daily basis saving me at least a day a week in time. I honestly could not live without her in our business. Tony Scott – Director https://www.stonegrill.co.nz/

I needed help with organising my books properly so I could confidently expand my painting business. Leah and her team have filled that role with excellence. She has been super helpful with great customer service and communication. They are always on top of things such as payroll and GST and I haven’t had to chase her once in five months of working together. I am very confident now in our business because I have clarity about my books and financials because of Leah. I highly recommend her and her team for business services. https://www.addopainting.co.nz/

“Leah has been doing our bookkeeping for one year now – I don’t know how I managed before! No more coming in to work on a Sunday to sort through invoices and pay the bills. No more staying late to chase up missing invoices etc. She is so very helpful and patient – nothing is a problem, easy to contact, and does what she says she will. If you are looking for a qualified bookkeeper I recommend Leah”. Phil – Chocolate Velvet – Nelson Wedding, Birthday & Corporate Cake Designers“.

“Leah Keown was appointed at Saint Clair Family Estate as an Assistant Accountant to cover for maternity leave from May 2015 to March 2016.

Leah is very efficient and takes pride in her work. In the time that she was with us some of her duties included – weekly payroll, monthly PAYE returns, weekly/monthly management reports, monthly GST returns, bank reconciliations, accounts receivable and accounts payable management. All tasks were carried out with ease in the timeframes required. I would recommend Leah in providing high calibre administration and accounting work to clients”.

“Since I have met Leah, I have been very impressed with her sound knowledge, professionalism, friendliness and efficiency.

She has proven to be a real gem for me as I can now concentrate more on my business instead of worrying about making all the figures add up. No question is too big or too small and her response to any problems I may have is always instant. I can’t recommend her enough”.

When recently asked, “what is the best thing to happen in your business recently?” I immediately replied, “having Leah Keown start working with us”.  Leah has taken on all the bookkeeping and accounting tasks I have thrown at her with accuracy and enthusiasm.  From an unfamiliar accounting package, to international payments, to payroll, to expenses, she hasn’t missed a beat.  Leah has made my life easier every day and has been a pleasure to work with. I couldn’t recommend her professional nature and attention to my business more highly,  allowing me to be more successful at doing what I do best, and leaving the numbers to someone I can trust. https://www.ivoryegg.co.nz/

“Leah worked for The Landseer Group for 5 years as a Group Financial Accountant and Office Manager for our group of Motor Vehicle Dealerships and related businesses throughout New Zealand. Primary responsibilities were producing timely and accurate monthly, full accrual based, financial reporting and analysis for a number of subsidiary companies, liaising with shareholder partners, branch managers and employees to ensure compliance with company policies and internal controls, ensuring timely flow of required paperwork for processing to head office, day to day management of administration staff and functions, daily cash management of up to 11 separate company’s and all IRD filing requirements. Leah is highly motivated, takes pride in her work and has a good work ethic, provides accurate and timely administration and accounting work and I would have no hesitation in recommending her to any client”.
