We achieve this by having excellence in the three areas of success: People, Processes, and Technology. What works in your favour is the way we treat people, our love of developing great systems, and our adaptability when it comes to technology.

About Us

Managing Director:

Nicola Edie is a certified member of the New Zealand Bookkeepers Association. She is a Xero Certified Advisor and Partner, holding a Diploma in Accounting as well as a Graduate Diploma in Not For Profit Management.

She has spent 21 years providing financial services – the first 10 years in front line accounts and 5 years for businesses as an Account Manager with multiple clients. Then she assisted in a large accounting firm as well as continuing professional development, before launching My Green Bookkeeper. These experiences have prepared her for most anything you could throw at her, with a smile!

Nicola is a great fan of releasing talented people to go and do what they are good at, while people like us take care of the annoying and technical bits. She offers Xero and Cloud accounting expertise – helping you to ‘go green’ in the office. All this experience and a keen interest in how people tick, along with her warm and people-friendly approach will make all the difference to your business.


Colin has a Bachelor of Business studies, NZ Certificate in Engineering, and various health science qualifications as well as Occ H&S. He has had a long career in the RNZAF, largely as an aircraft maintenance engineer, and most recently as a Force Health Protection Officer. He instigated and helped grow the RNZAF Mentoring scheme along with a team of key personnel, which has since reached over 800 people. This involved a close relationship with the NZ Coaching & Mentoring Centre.

Colin is also Xero Certified and his business, entrepreneur and mentoring skills helps make My Green Bookkeeper a success.

What Our Clients are Saying

Nicola has freed us up to spend time doing what we actually enjoy: practicing law. We are already seeing benefits in our productivity from the practical, professional and prompt help that My Green Bookkeeper has given us. I can’t believe we used to battle through all that admin without them! Invaluable. Highly recommended. Do it … yesterday!
