I used to wonder what made some people successful and left others wondering why they always seemed to be stuck at the same level in business. After 22 years in business I soon came to realise that it’s inextricably linked to how you use your precious time. I soon learned to identify tasks that distracted me, had me spending $100 to save $10 by ‘doing that myself to save money.’ I didn’t learn that from guest speakers at business breakfast meetings but by observing the habits of the sucessful CEO’s and Directors with whom my business worked. Bookkeeping was always one of those tasks with a negative ‘time-spent-to-money-saved’ ratio. What it really was, was a distraction from the things that actually made money – like picking up the phone and chasing business. Now that’s what I call a couple of hours well spent! So why Neil for my business? I wanted a book keeper who was interested in developing their revenue by increasing ours. I wanted someone who could bring us on to Xero and ease us into it without it feeling like a dental procedure every month. I wanted a plain speaking, honest bookkeeper who had ability, integrity and a great personality. I wanted a ‘get’s you to the next level’ bookkeeping asset for my business. So my advice is to line up a $100 bill next to a $10 bill , and your mobile phone. Then ask yourself three questions: How much is my time worth? Do I want to grow my business so I can earn more? Why haven’t I looked at improving the effectiveness and efficiency of my bookkeeping this financial year? If the answer to any of these is ‘I don’t know?’ , then use the phone to call ‭0431 265 600 and speak to Neil. Neil will help you answer these questions because he’s the ‘get’s you to the next level’ bookkeeper you need – it’s as simple as that!

I was recommended to first class accounts in 2011, before that I managed the books myself that cost me time and money. I was always skeptical of anyone managing my accounts but I soon realised the benefits of Neil Hodgson managing my accounts and can confidently recommend him. I now focus on the business aspects that I’m experienced at and leave the accounts to the professionals. Neil Hodgson has taken care of my accounts with integrity, professionalism and has always gone the extra mile. Highly recommended. John Moore Auto Supreme Pty Ltd

As a business owner, understanding what my money is doing and how to best manage it is essential for my growth and peace of mind. Neil makes this easy. He is always quick to respond to questions and he not only answers the questions I ask but also explains the reasoning behind his responses. This means that I am able to use that information to make informed decisions as I move forward with my business. I would, and do, recommend Neil very highly. Having worked with other bookkeepers in the past, he has never ceased to impress me with his professionalism, friendly manner and knowledge.
