About Frances

"The word accounting comes from the word accountability. If you are going to be rich, you need to be accountable for your money."

Having run a successful bookkeeping business in South Africa herself, Frances understands the needs and pressures faced by business owners. With years of experience and qualifications such as Certificate IV in Accounting and Bookkeeping and being a registered BAS agent, Frances takes away the stress of managing your financial records.

Outside of being a professional online bookkeeper, Frances loves the outdoors and travel, having explored and worked all over the world. She’s climbed Kilimanjaro and travelled around Australia with a motorbike and swag. However, she always returns to her other passion – helping businesses remain financially compliant without the stress of managing their accounts. She holds membership in the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers.

Frances is a qualified Life Skills Coach who can listen to your needs and work with you to find solutions.

what our client says


Frances was an integral member of the BTA Accountants team during her many years of employment. Always professional in delivery of exceptional client service, Frances goes above and beyond to genuinely connect with her clients on a more personal level, to understand the bigger picture. In her role as an accountant with BTA, Frances has gained in-depth experience not just in bookkeeping, but all aspects of accounting and taxation compliance. This depth of experience is rare to find in a bookkeeping professional and it means that Frances will be able to anticipate what your accountant requires, to ensure the entire accounting function of your business is as effective and efficient as possible. I have no hesitation in highly recommending Frances to any business wanting to engage a bookkeeping professional – she would be an asset to your balance sheet.

In my capacity as a tax agent, I have worked with Frances on a professional level for over 5 years. In that time, I observed that she is wonderfully efficient and excellent at meeting deadlines. Frances was always calm and organised. Nothing seemed to faze her, no matter how frantic the workload was. Frances is definitely a “go getter”. She is a brilliant bookkeeper and I have no hesitation recommending Frances as a bookkeeper and BAS agent.
