The perfect partner! 

"After 22 years of struggling with manual accounts and using an Accounting firm too busy making money for themselves, we were introduced to Mike at Bare Bones Accounting. What a relief!

Implementing Xero and Crystal Payroll, Mike was, approachable, intuitive and responsive.

He sorted out our issues and gave patient and sound advice. With Mike's help and advice we were able to better understand the financial side of our business and fill holes that were leaking money. We wish we had met Mike years earlier and made the move to Bare Bones Accounting a lot sooner."

Angela & Kingsley Gainsford, Directors, North Shore Dance Centre


Fixed our accounts in no time.

"We fix a lot of broken windows and we know how to do that. Our accounting and tax was broken for a long time and we didn’t know what to do about it. Once we got Mike and Bare Bones Accounting onto the problem it got fixed in no time. I highly recommend Bare Bones Accounting if your accounting and tax is broken. They got right onto it for us and did a great job with the minimum of fuss and bother."

John Friary, Director, Birkenhead Glass






A business that's going places. 

"We swapped our accounting service to Mike and the team at Bare Bones Accounting in May 2016. We are so happy with the help that Mike has provided. Mike is both professional and friendly in his approach completing all our accounting needs promptly. Mike has even been providing accounting / business mentoring to myself since taking over the Director position at our company. Our business is in international pet transportation – a unique market with very complicated accounting needs. Mike has quickly grasped the difficult nature of our business while managing to keep us all in check. I thoroughly recommend the Bare Bones Accounting team."

Sarah Thomas, Director, Pet Transport Ltd


Keeping this business financially fit. 

“Mike is great to work with and has made my admin life a whole lot easier with my business. I couldn’t thank him enough for his professional advice and support. I would highly recommend his services to anyone. Thanks Mike!”

Danielle Machine, Director, Machine Fit




Making it easy for us.

"Being a novice in the area of Accounting, I was relieved to have an Accountant who made things easy for me. I especially liked how things were explained in a way that I understood and the process of year end was all very simple, given that I never had to deal with IRD I am very happy with the service I get.

I was also impressed when we received advice that saved us from setting up an illegal loan structure as proposed by our loan broker. "

Tim Wells, Property Investor


Staying on track. 

"We’ve been working with Mike for a number of years now. Not only does he look after all our annual accounts and tax matters, we find we can call him about anything related to the business. He helps us keep on track and is a pleasure to deal with.

Mike understands our business and has greatly contributed to the success of Attic Backpackers. I can highly recommend Mike and Bare Bones Accounting to any other business."

Denise Laird, General Manager, The Attic Backpackers




Top shelf. 

"Barebones has provided us with exceptional service and advice from day one of our relationship with them. We would highly recommend them to any company in need of high quality service and advice."
