About SAS


Running a Small Business does not have to be an Administration nightmare!

My name is Karen Ward and I’ve been a Business owner in New Zealand for almost 10 yrs, prior to that I managed the accounts, administration and marketing activities in my husbands businesses.Smart Admin Services |Small Business Bookkeeping and Administration Help | Bay of Plenty

I enjoy helping other business owners succeed by taking the administration and bookkeeping headache and burden out of running their business – so they can get on with growing it!

I live on the outskirts of Tauranga and when I’m not doing the books I’m kept busy running after my 2 boys + the husband!

I am mobile and can come to your place of business or if you wish I can do what needs to be done offsite.

I provide services to Bay of Plenty businesses and work in partnership with Staples Rodway Tauranga providing bookkeeping and administration support services to their clients.

I can also provide services to business owners outside the Bay of Plenty using cloud based systems like Skype, Xero, Dropbox and Mailchimp.

Currently I provide remote bookkeeping and online marketing support to 5 Nelson based businesses:

  • Nelson Bays Motor Group
  • Colourplus Nelson & Richmond
  • Abfab Cleaning
  • Spit Roasters

I have experience with the major accounting and payroll packages and also help businesses with website updating, facebook company page administration, online/offline marketing and email marketing.

The services I provide a suitable for small to medium sized businesses that don’t want the burden of another employee on the books.

You don’t have to pay me for holidays, being sick or for non-productive time.

If you’re finding it challenging keeping on top of the admin then please get in touch, we can arrange a time to meet up and explore if there’s a fit with what you need and what I do.
