We're small business owners, like you

We're passionate about helping people reach their business goals and dreams. We understand what it is to run a small business - the 24/7 workload, the paperwork, the challenges. And we want to help you free up time to do what you do best!

We're experts

Chris is a business consultant with over 40 years experience, specialising in business operations and systems, business development and Health & Safety. Jill is a professional book-keeper with over 30 years experience, specialising in accounts, accounting services, payroll and HR. 

We're flexible

Whether you need help for just a couple of hours each week or a few days a month; whether you want us to work in your Tauranga office, or from ours, we do what works for you. And we're also happy to meet outside normal working hours, because we know it's sometimes hard to get away during the day. 

We're approachable

We're true-blue Kiwis, with a love of the great outdoors that's only matched by our love of our kids and grandkids. We speak in plain English, not in management speak (we also keep accounting jargon to a minimum), and believe no question is a silly question. It's your business, so we always keep you fully-informed and in total control.

Together as Upshot, we offer you a whole suite of professional services to save you time, money and stress – from help with your monthly accounts, invoicing and PAYE, to setting up HR and Health & Safety policies to meet legislative requirements… and many other services besides.

We're efficient and affordable

Low overheads keep our rates affordable, and we've fine-tuned the way we work over the years to offer an efficient, seamless service. We're also believers in going the extra mile for our clients. We're advocates for using smart yet-oh-so-simple software (such as Xero) to make easy work of your accounts / accounting!
