not every business needs an accounts department

but every business has accounts needs


home: Welcome


We are here to help Small business owners, like you.


Accounts may not be your zone of genius and you may see bookkeeping, accounting and financials as purely an issue of compliance. But your numbers tell the story of how your business is trading. By having support to make sense of your business finances you can make informed decisions to get them working for you and to achieve the results you desire.

We understand how busy you are, and with our expertise we can take care of your accounting needs quickly and effectively. Our flexible, friendly, reliable and personalised services are an added value service to help alleviate your stress by either supporting and empowering you to better manage

your business finances or managing them for you. Leaving you to focus on your business.





Co-founder & Director

"When I am not in front of a computer screen crunching numbers, I can be found either with my turntable listening to my vinyl collection, creating playlists or discovering new music".



Co-founder & Director

"Curled up with a good book is my "me time" escapism away from work life and family needs". 



Admin Support

"My role is to make sure they do not spend too much time in front of their computer screens and take regular breaks. I keep their work life balance in check".

About Us


We are not your average Accountants.


In 2016 my wife and I co-founded October Blue Limited with our "why" to support and empower small businesses achieve their success through managing their Accounts.

Coming together with our AAT and CIMA Qualifications we set up our Tauranga-based boutique company to use our accounts knowledge and skillset gained from over 30 years experience working in large corporate companies to small businesses.


Perfect for those who don't have an Accounts Department.

Tailored Outsourced Accounting solutions to support you in making sense of your finances and achieve your business and lifestyles goals. From empowering you to look after the numbers to managing your Accounts for you so you can look after your business and spend your time doing what you do best.



Flexibility is the key of working with you. From a couple of hours a day, a week or once a month.

An alternative to just handing over a box of receipts, files and paperwork to your Tax Accountant at the end of the financial year.

If you don't like numbers then that's where our Outsourced Accounting services are perfect for you.

A value added service to save you money and stress with your financials.

We mainly work remotely with our Clients with the option to meet in person if required.

This results in a more flexible and cost effective arrangement thanks to the use of cloud based technology.

It also means that location does not have to be a deciding factor when choosing to work with us even though we are Tauranga based.

“As a builder having my accounts looked after for me allows me to focus my attention 100% on my day job and my clients. For over 10 years Rich and Nikki at October Blue Limited have worked with me and that's a lot of time I've saved not having to spend on financial paperwork and GST Returns.

They do a stellar job!"

Thomas Livesey / Owner / Livesey Builders Ltd

“Richard has worked with us for over 10 years now and has been a real asset to our business. we have a very multifaceted operation with customised books and accounting systems. Richard has adapted very easily and helped us to systemise our work.

Richard is constantly upskilling himself with new regulations and software to ensure our operation is all up to date. How could we do without him??!!"
