About Us

Kate Beresford – Founder

Hi and welcome.   I am the Founder and Director of Cloud Bookkeeping Solutions.   I have been bookkeeping for more than 17 years; needless to say, I love what I do.   When I started out, bookkeeping was very manual, though today with exceptional accounting programs and technology, it really makes our bookkeeping processes so much more streamlined, efficient and effective.

My background and qualifications include:

  • 17 years of real world, practical experience including accounting and bookkeeping firms
  • Cert IV in Bookkeeping
  • Diploma in Accounting
  • Registered Licensed BAS Agent – number 2520 0393
  • Xero Certified Consultant
  • MYOB Consultant
  • Proficient in Xero, MYOB, QBO, Receipt bank, Actionstep, LEAP, to name a few.

Whether you’re looking for catch up bookkeeping, setups, training, Xero or MYOB services – no job is too large or too small.   I’m not scared off by a ‘challenge’ and equally welcome taking over a clean set of books – I just love getting the bookwork right, helping clients get maximum value from their bookkeeping and providing that little bit more.   If you need help with debt collection, forecasts, budgeting, or reviewing your margins and other business analysis, then I’m here to help.

I know what frustrates business owners, particularly around bookkeeping.   Simply, it boils down to know-how and time and that’s where I love helping my clients.   With the bookkeeping services that I provide, my team and I give back time to business owners, to let them use it where they want.   Maybe it’s more time with the family, or relaxing after a hard day, or being able to focus more effectively on their business and do what they do well.   In other words, giving them back control of their day and their working life whilst giving them the confidence that their bookwork is in good hands.

I have extremely high standards, so I ensure that I recruit and retain the best local bookkeepers to ensure that every client has an exceptional experience.   I oversee every project and personally care for each client.  For me, bookkeeping isn’t just about numbers – it’s about helping business owners achieve the best results possible from saving them time, to ensuring they’ll pass an ATO or BAS audit, or trusting the figures they are looking at are true, accurate and timely.
