I feel a massive weight lifted from my shoulders and confident that with Bec at my side and understanding my business and its numbers, I can focus on what I do best. Bec’s gritty determination around detail, combined with an ability to quickly tell it like it is, and not sweat the small stuff is an absolute joy.
I feel in very safe hands and would strongly recommend her to any small business that needs both detail and discipline around numbers, but also big picture help over time.
Thanks to her, we know where the focus of our business needs to be to maintain healthy cash flow. Planning out the next 12 months, we have clear targets for each and every week.
She has set up our Xero to run smoothly and given guidance on staff roles and contracts. Bec is precise, realistic and so lovely to work with. She always takes the time to explain things, without making me feel like an idiot. But best of all, she has my back and is truly invested in the success of my business. Straight Up Bookkeeping is an indispensable service for anyone setting up or running a business. Hire her!
I love that Bec explained complex financial structures simply and clearly. She breaks down each step into easy chunks and clearly explains the connections between things, and which bits are most important to worry about. I’m completely confident that I will be able to manage my finances and tax (mostly) by myself.
Bec is reassuring, calm and confident. I’d even go so far as to call her my on-call guru, CFO and financial cheer squad. I would not hesitate to recommend Bec, she is knowledgeable and an excellent teacher.
Becs' ability to translate the language of finances into common tongue is priceless.
The team are so quick to reply to all my concerns and I love the monthly overviews and advice they give about my accounts - very practical. Exactly what I need.
This level of trust that Bec and the team instil means that I can put my energy into growing the business and now have to allocate very little time to managing finances.
