Bookkeeping for Busy People (BFBP) is a personal and friendly bookkeeping service for people who have better things to do with their time.  The services are specifically aimed at small business enterprises.

Paul Tubman is the founder of BFBP.  Paul spent 20 years in the New Zealand Air Force before setting up BFBP in 2000.


Paul has up-to-date training and experience in accounting, taxation and finance-related areas and is familiar with many of the computer programs used for managing business accounts.  Paul's Air Force work included management and training roles, giving him valuable people and systems skills to complement his accounting qualifications.


Like many of his clients, Paul enjoys the flexibility of working from home, so he is well aware of the challenges they may face.  In addition, his military and training background give Paul a strong awareness of the need for discipline and systems in order to operate a successful small business.  In his own words, Paul "loves to make order out of chaos", and he gains a great deal of satisfaction from helping clients free up time to enjoy themselves.



Giving you back YOUR time.

If you are self-employed or run a small business, you probably find keeping the books the least enjoyable part of your work, and it's also likely to be the task you are least skilled at.  BFBP can release you from this often-dreary chore, giving you the opportunity to spend your time in more enjoyable and productive ways - whether it is with family or friends, pursuing sporting or leisure interests, or even building your business.

Giving you the financial information YOU need.

As well as meeting your essential GST and end-of-year tax return deadlines, our personalised service assists you to obtain the additional financial information you need.  At our very first consultation, we come to you to find out about your business, where you want to go with it, and what financial data you need to help you.  Then we custom-design reports and a system to provide that data in a way that is useful to you.

Creating a system that works for YOU

We are happy to work with any existing accounting system you have - whether it be a shoebox full of receipts, a commercially available accounting software package or something in between.  We can also assist you to develop and manage filing and other systems that work for you.

Making it EASY and SAFE.

Because you are a busy person, we pick up and deliver all of your bookkeeping work - either personally or via a reliable courier.  We also keep electronic backups of all your data once it is processed, and we have excellent systems in place to ensure your information remains secure and confidential at all times.



“Fortunately, or unfortunately, depending on how you look at it, I made enough to register for GST for the first time this year. As I looked at the jaw-dropping amounts that I thought I would have to pay, I knew I needed some help. A friend recommended Paul - his wonderful array of knowledge helped me save a lot on my returns! ”
