OUR MISSION

We help small to medium business owners gain financial clarity and build their wealth with confidence.

OUR STORY

“Whilst I have said that I own and run a bookkeeping business, my passion has always been in wanting to come alongside business owners, building a level of trust and recognised competency that allows them to breathe easier knowing that the financial aspects of their business are being well taken care of.
My clients don’t have to worry so much, because they have someone they can talk to and ask seemingly silly questions, someone who is in the trenches with them because we see everything.
​We can explain their financial position to them on a regular basis and we are following them up, pointing things out, and forewarning them about potential cashflow issues. We help them make better, more informed and timely decisions and we also let them know about legislation changes. We help our clients solve complex problems.
The feedback I get from some of my clients is that they sleep better at night because they know we have their back, they know we are looking at their finances when they are not and they know we’ll pick up the phone and alert them with any concerns.”

What our clients say about us

 

Roslyn provided extra breathing space to an already busy team keeping up with exponential growth. Her involvement was invaluable because she hit the ground running ready to help us with stability through staff transitions; alleviating pressure on the team; and her analytical attention to detail made it possible to improve our processes. I wouldn’t hesitate to engage Roslyn anytime we need an extra resource to keep us functioning smoothly.

During the difficult GFC days, Roslyn hit the ground running helping us manage a tight cashflow. As Roslyn is efficient and trustworthy, she’s been with us since 2010. She is very much our trusted CFO and we value her professionalism, dedication and reliability. As much as Roslyn usually works online, we love to see her in our office as she brings a pleasant vibe.

I have found Roslyn to be competent in understanding our business needs and offering constructive advice. She is honest and trustworthy. Her approachable nature ensures that she is available to discuss any queries I may raise. Roslyn is reliable –she has always delivered as she has agreed. It has been a pleasure to work with Roslyn and to have her on our team.

Ros Ahtee did the bookkeeping for my contract labour and recruitment business for 20 years. Contract labour operates with low margins and large cash flows. Accuracy in wages and invoicing are vital to maintain profitability so I was grateful to be able to delegate these tasks and the presentation of accounts to Ros as she was so accurate.
Because Ros knows accounting so thoroughly, I rarely had questions from my accountant at year end, so she saved me his fees! Also, when I came to sell the business Ros was helpful during negotiations, justifying the value in the balance sheet and not accepting lower valuations. Yes, I thoroughly recommend Ros.

Roslyn is competent, thorough, reliable and trustworthy. She is one of those people to whom work and responsibility can be given safe in the knowledge that quality outcomes will be achieved. It is a joy to work with her.

We refer many of our clients to Roslyn of Proactive Edge. She is an extremely experienced and diligent bookkeeper who assists her clients to get their bookkeeping up to date, and in order, which makes the task of preparing our client’s business tax returns a whole lot easier. A clean set of books is essential for any business, and that is what Roslyn and her team do.

I thought you may be interested to know that your hard work paid off. The other property agreed to pay $100,000 to our strata scheme based on your spread sheet. It’s nice when you get feedback regarding the result of hard work. Well done and thanks again.

I’ve trusted Roslyn with trouble-shooting my financials by providing deep analysis, insight, and recommendations on how to improve key metrics… when I first worked with Roslyn 20 years ago, we were a very small company, and now we’ve grown to a very successful multi-million dollar international company.
