Bookkeeping Just Got Easier for Small Businesses

Bookkeeping Just Got Easier for Small Businesses

As a business in Taranaki supplying services to the agri-industry it is crucial for Ag Traction to be flexible and adaptive to the needs of their clients. Having cost effective systems in place to ensure stock is well managed and that the best price is given to their clients at all times is essential to help them stay consistent and adaptable in what is a very competitive industry.

As a small business with a staff of 7 dealing with a large number of clients, Ag Traction’s Managing Director, Trent Hall (pictured below), was struggling to keep up with lengthy  administration tasks and found he was spending more time working on the financials of the business rather than in the business itself. Knowing that accurate financial billing and good cash flow management would be crucial in the current market, he sort advice from Staples Rodway Director and Business Advisor, Philip Macey, and decided it was time to take on a bookkeeper.


Trent said: “Staples Rodway organised for a skilled Bookkeeper and Accountant, Therese Fleming, to take the pressure off and because of the experience she has and her range of accounting skills, it was easy to integrate her into our workplace and we are constantly learning from her. Accounting technology is constantly changing so having a bookkeeper that follows the processes and screening of a large organisation means that we don’t have to worry about the time and cost involved in upskilling our staff.”

Following on from this successful arrangement, Staples Rodway has formed SR Books – a dedicated team of contracted Bookkeepers and Accountants to work directly with clients. All of the Staples Rodway Bookkeepers are trained by Staples Rodway and skilled at handling commercial transactions across a range of industries. They are specifically chosen based on the needs of the client and the accounting software they use.

Trent continued: “Since using the service our internal financial statements are accurate, we’re getting on top of our accounts and we’re saving money! The service has given me peace of mind that if cash flow is tight, I can access immediate reports and liaise with Philip to help me make important business decisions.”
