Meet The Team
Welcome to The Bookkeeping Department team!
We are here to ensure your finances are in order and you are in control of your business.
Alistair is in charge of all the bookkeeping operations. There is nothing he likes more than diving into a pile of bookkeeping paperwork and his capacity for continuous bookkeeping for long periods of time without drawing breath has to be admired. He knows his stuff and loves working with clients and his team to support them to provide ‘bullet proof’ bookkeeping services, forecasting and production planning. In his personal life, he enjoys Jazz, football and pottering around on his Vespa.
Lynne is responsible for business development and ensuring our clients are getting the service expected. Her background as an HR manager sees Lynne bring a very ‘people orientated’ approach which ensures our clients are fully supported. She also provides bookkeeping services to a range of clients, runs our Xero workshops and supports businesses with setting up and using Xero for their bookkeeping. In her personal time, Lynne enjoys family time and putting her nose in a good book.

Teresa works with us to manage the office administration and systems and is also a great asset to us in terms of business development. Teresa believes in ‘delighting your customers’, so that warm, friendly approach coupled with her boundless positive energy for working on different projects and tasks, makes her a great person for ‘getting things done’. Teresa is very family orientated but doesn’t really do spare time – it’s usually filled with something she is involved in or organising.
