About Our Maitland Bookkeeping Practice

Our Story: A Safe Place for Your Business

Established in June 2017, The Vault Bookkeeping was born out of a deep understanding of the importance of trust and flexibility in the world of business. The name “Vault” reflects our commitment to providing a secure and reliable place for your business’s financial well-being. We understand that your business is priceless, and you can trust us to care for it as if it were our own.

The Vision Behind It All: Pioneering a New Era in Bookkeeping

When our founder, Katie, embarked on this journey, she had a clear vision in mind. It was a time before the COVID-19 pandemic and the widespread adoption of flexible working conditions. With a husband who worked shift working hours, a two-year-old child, and another on the way, the constraints of a traditional, office-based job simply wouldn’t fit her family’s needs.

In this unique moment, a virtual bookkeeping practice was born. It was new and unheard of, a pioneering approach to financial management that broke free from the conventional mould. The Vault Bookkeeping, even to this date, remains committed to pushing boundaries beyond the norm. Our philosophy “Beautiful Business, Virtually Anywhere,” continues to be the guiding principle that defines us.

Katie brought a wealth of financial expertise to the table, with a background spanning banking, lending, insurance, and superannuation. Her experience extended beyond finance, encompassing training and assessment, as well as contract management within the mining industry. It was a natural choice for Katie to leverage her knowledge and passion to help and teach others.

Family-Centric Values

At The Vault Bookkeeping, we believe that family is at the core of everything we do. Our business is designed to work for your family, just as it was designed to work for ours.

Our Core Vision: Empowering Tradespeople

Our central mission is to empower trade-based businesses. We collaborate closely with tradespeople to help them reclaim their time, gain control over costs, and fuel their growth. Our approach involves a range of strategies, from implementing cutting-edge apps to easily track job profitability to enabling four-day workweeks. We work with you to set both business and personal goals and hold you accountable to budgets and cashflow plans.

Fueling Growth and Creating Freedom

Our ultimate goal is to enable trade-based businesses to transform their back-end operations into a virtual, efficient powerhouse. By doing so, we help business owners step away from the daily grind and enjoy more quality time with their loved ones.

At The Vault Bookkeeping, we’re not just about numbers; we’re about creating a secure, flexible, and prosperous future for your business and your family. Join us on this journey, and let’s unlock the potential of your business together.
