$1 per Month Business Accounting Service On Xero

Are you an existing business looking for the accounting edge!



Welcome to the Home of Business and Organisational Success

I provide accountancy, tax and business advice and support to businesses, Māori organisations and health providers or professionals across Hawke’s Bay or beyond, so whether you’re a budding entrepreneur looking to make your business dreams come true or an existing business or organisation and you need to keep your costs under control, improve your profits, systems and processes or require assistance with business planning (including budgeting and cash flow forecasting) you're in the right place.

Xero Accounting

At Accountancy and Business by Nick Roberts I'm not your typical Hawke's Bay accountant. Only I provide a totally personalised, fully accessible business focused client-visiting exclusive top quality service to a small number of business clients who are serious about attaining their goals and achieving success.

I'm also informal and friendly, efficient and effective, reliable and honest, and clients enjoy rapid response times as well as a close working relationship that I find necessary for me to provide the essential up-to-date business information that business owners need to thrive.

​If you’re like most Hawke's Bay businesses you’ll also need help with:

  • Understanding and interpreting financial information and reports.
  • Setting goals and business planning.
  • Coping with government rules and regulations.
  • Monitoring and reporting, especially Key Performance Indicators.
  • Getting more customers or clients in the most cost-effective way.
  • Your annual financials, tax and keeping on the right side of the IRD and chores like keeping your books and GST Returns

Dreams and Goals

Many folk in Hastings, Napier or further south in Central Hawke's Bay Or Dannevirke are just happy plodding along and doing the same old things every day and spending their lives in the same old places. The chances are though, if you’re reading this, you’re not like that, and maybe you’re one of those who dream of freedom - freedom from mediocrity, from being trapped as a wage slave, or perhaps of working for someone not as capable as yourself. Or it could be being able to do more of the things you want to do or even make a difference to the lives of others, not counting improving your work-life balance and getting more satisfaction from your work.

Well, for those dreams to come true, you’re far more likely to succeed if you set yourself goals, of what you want to achieve and by when. That way, you know exactly what you’re aiming for and you can work out what you need to do attain your goals.

If you set yourself goals that you really wish to achieve (maybe to travel round the world, take a year’s sabbatical, spend more time with the family or do some volunteer work) it’s so much easier to focus on and get done all those day-to-day tasks in your life or business which you may not enjoy doing, because then, everything you do moves you a step closer to helping you reach your goals. In short, having goals will keep you on track and motivated, to work hard and effectively towards success in both your business and your life.

So start turning your dreams into reality by setting yourself some goals. Success in business or work is for most of us a necessary step to achieving success in life, and not just financially.

Providing useful and value for money advice on business growth and efficiency

Take Control of Your Business

If you don’t know what your break-even point is, whether you're making enough profit, how you’re performing against the six key factors critical to success in your business or organisation or your peak cash flow need over the next 12 months you’re taking unacceptable risks with not just your future, but those of your clients, customers or your family who depend on you. 

Increasing efficiency, getting to grip with your finances and avoiding unpleasant surprises is of paramount importance to both businesses and not-for-profit organisations, so don’t belong to that not very exclusive group of businesses and organisations in New Zealand who waste loads of time and countless thousands of dollars through a total lack of planning and day-to-day control with poor systems or risk analysis and not making the most of the opportunities available.
