About Us

Our Mission

To provide small and medium sized businesses bookkeeping services so they can concentrate on running their business and not worrying about their everyday paperwork and dreaded looming BAS. We want our clients to have their accounts up to date and in order on a regular basis, not working late into the night to keep on top of their paperwork or jumping in to get up to date because the BAS or year end tax return is due. It is important for every business owner to have access to current financial information so they can understand how their business is performing and allowing them to make informed decisions now, not eighteen months down the track when they see their accountant. 

Our History

Coralie Downie set up her small bookkeeping business after many years of experience in banking, bookkeeping and accounting. She originally called it Cozzie’s Bookkeeping Services which sounded good at the time. As the business grew, she spent more time on branding her business and settled on the name Northern Beaches Bookkeeping Solutions with the purple tree as her distinct logo and now has a small office in the Belrose Village on Ralston Avenue with three other local staff members. The business has now been operating for over nine years and provides bookkeeping services to many different small and medium sized businesses in the local area and the surrounding Sydney suburbs. We do have clients all over Sydney but it is nice sometimes to have the ability to pop into the office if the need arises. All of our work is carried out in Sydney, we do not outsource to any overseas bookkeepers so you know your information is kept safe and we understand the local Australian tax system. We are a small business ourselves so we understand what is required with all the red tape and compliance. Quite a few years ago we came across Xero accounting software which revolutionised the accounting industry. Some bookkeepers still love MYOB and whilst we still do have a couple of clients on MYOB, we decided many years ago to only work with new clients who prefer to use Xero. With so many clients in different industries over the years we have come to understand Xero inside and out and consider ourselves quite the Xero experts. We keep up with the latest updates through our Xero Gold Partner program and regular certifications. We also prefer to use the latest technology available including Receipt Bank and Hubdoc as a means of collecting your paperwork. It is as simple as taking a photo of a bill on your phone or receipt or forwarding on your supplier’s email with their attachment. All of this new technology and apps should be making your life easier so you can sit back and relax a little.
