Who we work with

Vicky Heyblom / Administration / Millright Engineering

Always a pleasure dealing with the team at Living Business. They are knowledgable in what they do and nothings a problem.

Leisha Conrad / Director / Kaikihikihi Arts

After years  of trying to google tutorials on how to use xero and countless attempts to get my head around “PAYE” I came across Helen and her team and made contact.

I now subscribe to Xero through Living Business, where I can access help and advice when I need it.  So much easier that Googling tutorials and forever grateful that there is a service out there that specialise in Xero here in Aotearoa.

Katia Saft / Administration / Southern Cross Horticulture

We use WorkFlowMax. Great service. Prompt reply. Accurate information. Everything you need to have when getting service for a system. Thanks Helen!

Janie Tewhata / Structured Scaffolding

Great bunch of ladies. I dealt with Tanya, who taught me some great tricks to using Xero. Would definately deal with them again. Hard to find people that truly care about your interest and they do

Justin Souter / Director / Marle

The team at living business are so great to work with. They are across so many parts of our business and support us greatly on a weekly basis. Would recommend to anyone with an exisiting business or starting out. Thanks

George Gibson / Director / Elizabeth St Cafe and Larder

I have been using Living Business as my book keeper for many years now. They are very professional and take all the worry away when it comes to my accounts and gst filing etc. I recommend Living Business to everyone. Thanks team!

Dr George Gray

Absolute top team of people. Helen does a great job of assessing your business requirements, and Bernadette does an incredible job of making sure the company finances are 100% compliant. Highly recommended!

Ian Stevens / Director / Build Tiny

I recently called Helen Schafer with the intention of getting advice and support for a software application that Living Business supports which I thought would be right for our business.  Helen was a true professional and after a short discussion she suggested a number of other products I should investigate, some of which were not products Living Business supported.  I will certainly go back to and also recommend Helen to other business needing help with IT systems to improve processes in their business.   Ian Stevens, Director Build Tiny Limited.  Katikati.

Chris Cauchi / Director / Earthy AG

Living Business, (Helen) was unbelievably helpful, I was having troubles with setting up my custom invoicing in XERO, she gave me advice over the phone to rectify the problem, she spent the time to explain how the system worked and what to look for when building the form, even offering if I get stuck setting up the invoice to do a computer link to show me step by step.
Living business also advised of other programs that may help my business later on in the future. I highly recommend her services.

Zsuzsanna Murdra / Director / Belmil for Kids NZ

I had a few issue with our Xero, and Helen help me fix them and give me so much helpful advice, I can't thank enough for her! She is amazingly helpful and very quick with response time!
Thanks again for your help Helen was much appreciated!  Zsuzsanna Mudra Co-Founder of Belmil for Kids NZ.

Milos Mlynarik / Director / Milos Photography

I was dealing with a Xero issue for a few months and I got quite fortunate to come across Helen. She managed to help me and was very professional and quick to act. I very happy to find her because I know the next time I have an issue with my system there's a great person just a phone call away.

Lynn Locke / Administration / Shoalhaven City Turf Club (NSW)

Helen was very helpful, patient and professional. She helped me understand Xero. She was friendly and ensured I understood before I moved on. We covered a lot in our time and I would recommend Helen to anyone needing assistance with their accounting needs.

Rhys Jakich / Burger Fuel (Tauranga / Mt. Maunganui / Papamoa)

As I had the day to day running of the business to attend to we made the decision to approach Living Business. We have found the work is always accurate and completed on time. This is an important factor for me as I’m required to produce monthly reports for Head Office and need the information I work from to be without error. Since working with Living Business we’ve noticed how much easier life has become as admin can be quite time consuming. It was a good move to offload it and we would recommend Living Business to other businesses without hesitation.

Alexis Corkill / Papamoa / Bin Inn

The Living Business team took over a large part of our accounts and fixed any issues we had with Xero. They kept everything up to date and running efficiently. Tasks were completed in a fraction of the time and this made life so much easier for us.  Helen and the team are a fantastic group of people and gave us a level of personal and professional service that is second to none.  Although we have now moved on from the Bin Inn business we are still recommending Living Business to anyone who needs Xero and accounts support – we know they won’t regret it.


Matt Jackson / Director / CMT Excavations

 I would highly recommend Living Business to anyone contemplating changing their accounting systems or who just needs get extremely honest and helpful advice.  Our only regret is not doing it earlier.  We also know that with Helen on-board we will never be behind in systems again!


Simon / Hamilton / Ground Work Associates

 Helen’s support as a WorkflowMax expert was crucial in helping us to understand the capabilities, advantages, and limitations of the software we had been using for several years (but not utilising it to its fullest potential). She also provided solutions to long-established and unresolved issues and developed processes alongside us to ensure more robust financial accountability on our projects going forward.


Sarah Devereaux / Empowered Leadership

I would highly recommend Living Business to anyone finding themselves in a situation where their accounts are in disarray and they are getting tax surprises. My accounts are now accurate and up to date, and I have peace of mind that they will remain so moving forward.


Arul Hamill / Occupational Therapist / Kauri Therapy

We love Vee! She is sooo great. It has been really good being with you at Living Business—makes life so much easier.

Nikita Williams / Metro Marketing

I worked with Helen to launch WorkflowMax within Metro Marketing and her assistance, knowledge and at times patience with us was outstanding throughout the whole process!
