    Kay worked with me as Group financial controller for a recently acquired large family owned German group of companies. This was an especially challenging role bridging the requirements of a listed international group and the culture of a hundred year old family owned company. Kay excelled in the role developing both the underlying internal controls and group reporting systems. Kay developed the required financial control in such a challenging environment through determination, a strong work ethic and the real ability to work as a team. Her achievements ultimately resulted in her promotion to a corporate head office role in Australia.

    Kay Godfrey comes highly recommended! Kay set up my Quickbooks, integrated Servicem8 and provided the training I needed to manage my day-to-day small business bookkeeping independently. Could I have done this without her? Possibly, but going-it-alone would almost certainly have been slower, less accurate and more stressful. Kay made the process stress free, fast and friendly. I can relax in the knowledge that I'm capturing the right information correctly and will be ready for the tax man. She gave me her undivided attention and took the time to truly understand my business and future plans. Kay's service and style are ideally matched to the needs of new or established small businesses, such as trades, services and online retailers. Kay's expertise is invaluable, affordable, personalised, supportive and one of the best business investments I've made to date.

    We run an in-home care worker services business for elderly people in the local area who want to live at home safely and comfortably. We have been open one year and as we get busier and busier, book keeping services such as submitting invoices to brokerages, keeping track of outstanding invoices, producing monthly P&L summaries, and supporting us with learning Quick Books is invaluable. Operational excellence is critical to keep clients and staff happy, and Kay is an invaluable part of our operational excellence goals.

    Thank you! It’s because of your wonderful guidance and your easy going user friendly approach. Also you explain things the way that I understand, which is a bonus for me. In the past, I have found other bookkeepers/accountants forget that us ‘lay’ people don’t understand the jargon if not explained in easy to understand terms. Thanks again and have an awesome weekend.
