Introducing our staff

Katrina Semple started contract bookkeeping in 2002, whilst pregnant with her third child.

The aim was to work from home and have the flexibility around her young family, which has been rewarding in all aspects.

Today, Katrina is a registered BAS Agent with over 30 years experience as a bookkeeper and, over seventeen years experience as a BAS Agent. 

Katrina, having completed an Associate Diploma in Business (Accounting), is a qualified Company Accountant, meaning 'she is more than just a bookkeeper'.  She has also completed the Certificate IV in Financial Services (Bookkeeping), a requirement of the Tax Practitioner's Board.

Our Clients

Our small business clients consist of all types of business structures, be they sole-traders, partnerships, companies and family trusts.  Our clients are also across many industries including advertising, building and construction, medical, manufacturing and retail.

We recognise that our clients are our driving force and the sole reason we are in business. Our total focus is on meeting your business' needs and keeping up to date with legislation and processing systems.  This keeps you up-to-date as well as allowing you to simply focus on your business.

Most of our clients have been referred by other clients, accountants and friends... the biggest compliment we could ever receive. Our time can then be spent focusing on your business' requirements, rather than our own.

Our valued clients also stay with us for many, many years whereby we soon become part of the family.  One of the many things we love about our job!

Our Partners

Being proudly partnered with the following organisations allows us to keep up to date with the latest accounting software and taxation information. This then takes the pressure off you, the business owner.

Being a Professional Partner with Reckon ensures we have the latest range of Reckon software and training, and are therefore always informed of their latest products and features. This information is then passed onto the client so you are also kept up-to-date with the latest upgrades. This partnership also provides us with unlimited technical support, if ever needed, and the ability to purchase software at reduced prices.

Reckon was formerly known as QuickBooks, on which I started out.  Plenty of experience in this software too.

Similarly, being partnered with MYOB ensures we are up-to-date with the latest software and their features. We have access to unlimited technical support, so if we can't help our clients, we know where to find the answers.

The Institute of Certified Bookkeepers work tirelessly to keep us members informed of changes to legislation that affects our industry, taxation obligations, technology that can assist our business, and to co-ordinate regular network meetings with other bookkeepers. This enables our staff to remain up to date with the relevant changes and therefore allows us more time to better serve our clients.
