Bookkeeping Wizardry is just one phone call away…


As a business owner or manager, you’ve got more to worry about than having to do your own book work and accounts. Merlin Bookkeeping’s principal has over 20 years experience as a successful business owner across a range of industries, so we know the many challenges that you face each and every day.

Free up your time by letting Merlin take away the hassle of your book work. Let our years of business experience with accounts, bookkeeping, payroll, business planning and even marketing communications help you run your business more effectively.




Bookkeeping is a process; the wizardry applies when we combine our experience of how small and medium sized businesses operate to ensure it becomes a greater asset to your business.

This bookkeeping wizardry is important in maintaining your cash flow through Debtor management and effective forward planning of your company’s cash flow needs.

The answer to your bookkeeping questions


Focus on making money from your business, not balancing your books. Let Merlin Bookkeeping support you by running your accounts, payroll, creditors and debtors.

Yes. But an initial face to face meeting is an important start. Once we know each other and build trust together, we can do your bookkeeping remotely.

Easy. Just call Bill Cross the bookkeeping wizard and set up an appointment for a time and place that suits you.

Less than you wasting your time on bookkeeping when you can focus on revenue producing work. Our current rate for standard bookkeeping and accounts work is $48 per hour plus GST. And you’ll get value for money from this investment in your business.

We don’t give financial advice, that’s the job for a licensed Financial Advisor, or perhaps your Accountant. But we do a good job applying sound bookkeeping processes to keep your book work up to date and efficient, and we will happily liaise with your accountant and follow his/her advice – especially in regard to taxation issues.

Areas of Expertise


Our years of experience owning and managing small and medium sized businesses gives us a better understanding of your business – this helps us to better understand your bookkeeping and general accounts needs. We have experience working with the major electronic bookkeeping programs … MYOB, Xero and QuickBooks.


MYOB, Xero, QuickBooks

We can help you choose the program and monthly package that’s right for your business. And we can set this up for you.

Accounts Management and Payroll

You need professional oversight on all aspects of your accounts, because they work in unison. We provide this oversight whilst efficiently processing your regular staff payroll runs.

Debtor Management

No cash flow = No business

Merlin can manage your trade debtors to keep on top of this often difficult and vital aspect of your company’s life blood …. cash flow!

Bank Reconciliation

An important part of keeping your books balanced is ensuring your bank account reconciles … usually at least monthly. We will do this as part of our bookkeeping service.

Creditor Management

Supportive suppliers can be a great asset to your business, but it’s a two-way process. To earn that support you need to play fair and pay fair by proper management and timely payment of your creditors’ invoices. We can manage your creditors for you.

General Business Advice

Merlin understands how to manage a business. We can provide general advice for business planning, budgeting, bookkeeping, marketing and social media. Feel free to ask how our experience can help you grow your business.

Let Merlin be the wizard with your bookkeeping, accounts and payroll administration, whilst you be the wizard at making more money for your business.
