“Its only been 3 months since we brought you on board as our Bookkeeper. We cant believe how much you have achieved in such a short time. It has freed me up so I can now concentrate on running the business rather than spending hours in the office. I wish to thank you also for all your advise on not just Xero but also wages, employment, employment contracts and lately COVID-19.”

Bruce McGregor, McGregors Bakery

“I run a skateboarding clothing and hardware business online out of Russell and needed a bookkeeper to provide timely and cost effective performance information and do my GST returns. I saw Rachel’s office sign and thought I would see if she could provide such a service. I have not been disappointed. Right from the start, Rachel was straightforward, to the point and quickly knocked our information into shape. She worked seamlessly with our our accountants Palmas Ltd who were very impressed with her. She took a loosely organised situation and brought order to it in a cost efficient manner going well beyond a strict bookkeeping role to become a team member that led the push to get results. She found a company that could provide a platform that could talk to our various selling, stock and accounting programs - cutting out costly inputting from one system to another. On the GST return front, our returns were in the first week of the month following cut-off often getting a quick cash inflow that enabled us to move forward invaluable. I cannot fault Rachel as a bookkeeper and a team leader in her area. Anyone who gets her as a bookkeeper and team member is a lucky person or company! I would thoroughly recommend her in both roles.

“Rachel at Conduit Bookkeeping has been doing my bookkeeping for nearly a year now. I was recommended to her by a friend and I would highly recommend her services to anyone from big to small businesses. She currently does all my wages, Xero reconciling, GST, PAYE and much more. Rachel goes above and beyond to make sure everything runs as smoothly as possible. She regularly contacts me personally to make sure everything is OK and sends reports along with other material and ideas to help my business growth and well being. Rachel is very up to date with programmes and technology to make things run smooth and efficiently, I feel like a highly valued client. I can not stress enough on how Rachel is a real asset to my business!!

“I’ve had Rachel Paterson as my book keeper and running office administration for the past 5 years, in this time Rachel has been a key influence in our business for helping establish good systems to cope with our steady and sometimes rapid growth and expansion as a company. I can confidently say that without her Barton Blacksmith Services Ltd would have struggled to get to where we are today. She has been great in helping establish budgets and advise on tax matters right down to finding an accountant that's best suited to us.

To sum it up, Rachel is a self managing professional hard working person who is extremely trustworthy and honest and a true asset to any team she works in.”

Bruce Barton, Director - Barton Blacksmith Services Ltd

“Not a lot of time at the moment with moving farms, stock, beehives and all.

Maybe you could write up something appropriate and I will sign it.

Be sure to include how you managed to transform this business from utter chaos to the well oiled machine it is now.”

Darrel Robb, Director - Darrel Robb Contractors & Billarose Farm

“Thanks for everything! Rachel at Conduit Bookkeeping has helped me immensely with getting my new business up and running and pointing me in the right direction. She is positive, patient and very experienced in what she does. Rachel has offered a very helpful service to the local businesses around the region with her knowledge of Xero and bookkeeping and general queries - we couldn’t do it with out her. I would highly recommend Rachel from Conduit Bookkeeping to anyone that needs this service.”

Cam Burnside, Director - CB Engineering

"I first met Rachel through my being a board member of Business Paihia. Rachel volunteers for the job as Treasurer and she always ensures the financials are on time and up to date as well as her being well prepared with information on potential expenditure items for Board discussion. Rachel does a superb job for our Association. 

I had been having some challenges with my Xero accounting system, and at a recent Business Paihia meeting Rachel was wearing her Xero shirt. After a chat with her I learnt that she specializes with Xero. This is just what I have been looking for and Rachel came to my business and worked through some of the issues I had been having. 

During this time Rachel also showed me ways I could make Xero work better for me. She has done a complete health check of my system and I have the comfort of knowing that I have a specialist based here in Paihia who can work through my specific issues relating to my business. 

You can tell Rachel enjoys her work and she is happy to come out and meet with you face to face and work through your specific requirements. 

I would be happy to recommend Rachel’s services."
