Today Bring On Monday is an innovative, intuitive accounting service partnering with small business owners around New Zealand to provide the tools for success, remove stress and improve lives. What you might not know about us is we began as monthly Monday morning events, empowering entrepreneurs via a range of topics from mindfulness and sustainability to efficient processes.
After a few Q&A’s, we quickly realised that there was a significant lack of understanding and confidence in one of the most important elements of any business and what our people really needed was affordable, easy-to-use financial support. An expert to take a good look at their books, hold them accountable, streamline their process, set up simple systems and provide advice when required.
With an empowering mindset and holistic approach to business, Bring On Monday evolved into a valuable accounting, bookkeeping and coaching service designed with entrepreneurs in mind. With the occasional Monday morning event for old times’ sake.
The catch we exist to counter: Unless you’re a financial savant, all business owners face the same catch-22. Because of fun things like payroll, tax returns and GST returns, accounting is a basic requirement for any business. To grow, it’s an absolute essential.
For a budding entrepreneur like yourself, you’ve got two options; spend your hard earned dosh outsourcing to expensive professionals or invest your valuable time learning the ropes, leaving a fair bit of room for error (no offense) and resources wasted. We know, we learned the hard way.
When we founded our first business ten years ago, we knew we wanted to set up financial processes that helped us expand and make our day-to-day more efficient. We required an expert hand for financial admin, compliance and business performance but as new business owners, this just wasn’t in our budget. We had no other option but to master it ourselves. Lucky for you, we can now offer the affordable accounting solution we were lacking - with a hearty side of insight and empathy.
Financial support for all: Bring On Monday solves this accounting conundrum faced by all business owners by applying our years of hands-on experience as entrepreneurs, employing the use of the world’s most innovative accounting systems and treating your company like it’s our own business baby. With half of our founding team in South Africa, Bring On Monday employs a crew of talented bookkeepers who work alongside our New Zealand head office to deliver exceptional, professional accounting services and advice at an reasonable rate.
Together, we take full responsibility for your financial administration and compliance, including tax returns, GST returns, payroll, bookkeeping and advice when you need it, all at less than the market rate. We like to think of ourselves as your savvy business partners who genuinely care about your success, whether that’s upping your profit, achieving your goals or just having one of those good work-life balances you’ve heard so much about.
We’re not here to boost our bottom line, we’re here to improve the lives of local business owners just like you and build a savvy, resilient and successful community of Kiwi entrepreneurs.
