About Us

Accountants Out West Limited are located in West Auckland and are an experienced team of Accountants that can help you with all your accounting needs.

We offer our clients an affordable, efficient, and honest accounting service. We have gained New Zealand tax experience from working in the public, and private sectors, which we draw upon to help our clients. The aim for Accountants Out West Ltd is to provide a professional taxation service at fair, and affordable rates, which cater for individuals, whether you are on salary, or wages, self-employed, contractor or freelancer, or hold rental properties in your own name or in a partnership. Services are limited to New Zealand taxes only.

We provide an initial 30-minute free consultation, to discuss with you what your needs are, and if you are happy to go ahead, we can provide you with an upfront fee quote of what it will cost you after seeing your records, so no nasty surprises. Honest, fair, and upfront.

We introduce our team Ashlee Bayne, James Fitzpatrick, Lizzy Ernst, and Cadie Reid.

Hi, I’m Ashlee, the owner and Accountant at Accountants Out West Limited (AOWLTD). I have 11 years experience working in the accounting field in both the private and public sectors, all throughout New Zealand. I have been running Accountants Out West on my own since 2019 and in 2022 AOWLTD has grown so much, I have taken on employees to help with the administrative workload. I am down-to-earth and friendly and love to read, walk, paint/ draw, and go camping by the beach. I value my clients and have done since we opened in 2019. The aim is to keep giving that same enthusiasm to the clients as we continue to take on more work, if not more now that our team has grown.

Hi, I’m James, I’m 21 years old and currently working towards a degree in computer science. In my spare time, I like to practice programming, contribute to citizen science projects, skateboard and play various games with my friends when we have time. I’m professional and very detail-oriented with my work. I’m delighted to be working remotely with Ashlee and her team.

Accounting Assistant

Hi, I’m Lizzy. I’m currently working on some of my NCEA credits early in Year 10 at Green Bay High School. I take business studies at school and I’m doing really well in this class. During my free time I play guitar (working on grade 5), and I enjoy doodling and creating mini artworks. I see myself as a bubbly and kind person and I work well with others. I am always very professional in everything I do and I’m not afraid of working hard. I can’t wait to start work with the clients at Accountants Out West Limited and get to know everyone better.




Cadie Reid

Accounting Assistant

Hi, I’m Cadie. I’m a Year 10 student at Avondale College and am focusing on completing some of my NCEA credits a year early. In my spare time, I like to race Speedway Solo bikes and spend time training and maintaining my bike. I also like to go dirt bike riding and do lots of outdoor activities to keep fit. I am a quiet and diligent worker and take pride in completing a job well. I’m excited to join Ashlee’s team and learn accounting with her.




Looking forward to working with you, to provide a simple, effective, and affordable service.
