Why outwork to Office Angels?

Running a business can be hard work. But it doesn’t have to be if you get your business running like a well-oiled machine. The way to do this is to work ON your business, not IN your business.

In the past kiwis had a ‘do-it-yourself’ attitude – the trusty no.8 wire mentality – and maybe a hint of ‘she’ll be right’. We trusted ourselves rather than professionals who knew quite a lot more than we did. Yet more and more business people now understand the importance of specialising in what they do best and outwork the rest. This thinking, although contrary to our built-in kiwi character, reaps huge benefits due to the following reasons.


Outworking parts of your business:

  • Allows you time to focus on the parts of the business that YOU provide the best value in, be it sales, production, or management.
  • Ensures you can spend precious time AWAY from the business rather than spend nights and weekends doing jobs that can be done much quicker by others. This allows you to enjoy a more balanced life and approach work fresh.
  • Reduces the risk of having too many business tasks internalised. If you or your administrator gets sick, who is going to do the bookkeeping and wages?
  • Ensures the job gets done by someone who is trained in that area, does it day in and day out, and has the right tools at his or her disposal.
  • Reduces the cost of doing the bookkeeping as we only charge for the time it actually takes to do the work, so there is no down time and as we do this all day long, we are generally quicker.
  • If you employ someone to do your bookkeeping, outworking saves you money that is otherwise lost on rent, power, rates, office equipment, telecommunications, wages, sick days, annual leave, statutory holidays and ACC.


Our business operates from Auckland, yet our monthly accounts are done by Office Angels in Tauranga. The process is seamless and efficient. I can’t imagine going back to the way things were. I do what I do best, someone else does what they do best, and there’s no downtime.
