From the Director
Ever since I can remember, I’ve been obsessed with numbers, organisation, planning and plotting financial goals. I’ve lived in four countries (England, Canada, USA and Australia), permanently in Australia now and in-bedded in the Bookkeeping industry here since 2009. Over the years I've worked closely with a variety of industries, watching them transform from brand new to flourishing, as well as struggling to strong. Sometimes, its just getting them over minor barriers that leads to growth. That has to be the best part - seeing goals successfully come to fruition!
I find myself very lucky to have found a field that satisfies all that I find FUN - yes, I know that sounds strange, because the work we do is that which most sane individuals avoid with a ten foot pole! But - I really love this industry, and I only employ those who match my enthusiasm. The feedback we get from businesses we have helped - like how we’ve reduced stress from their lives, negotiated easy payment plans with the ATO, removed fines, got their business up and running out of a ditch, helped pump enthusiasm and knowledge into their team, all and all made their business life easier - that's why we do what we do. I feel great when I know my clients have the time to get back to what they love!

- Nerreda Simon, Hospitality, Wollongong, NSW
"We were really behind in our BAS, but Kimberly helped us get the right figures in no time. Then she even helped us communicate with the ATO. Having step by step guidance with that kind of stuff made all seem a lot less stressful. Now we are following a budget and feel like we have so much more control. It's like a weight had been lifted - seriously!"
- Retail Shop, North Sydney
"By using Rikki weekly, I don't have to think twice about our cash-flow. And then when BAS time comes, it's all done so fast. Polished Bookkeeping gives us piece of mind."
- Construction, Thirroul, NSW
"I thought the migration from MYOB to Xero would be a nightmare, but with Polished Bookkeeping I only had to do a few things in order to complete the transition. Then, I woke up one day to see all my records showing up in Xero, just like that. That was a good day."
- Construction, Fairy Meadow, NSW
