About

At Pure Bookkeeping, we understand most successful bookkeeping operations are not started by owners with big school business degrees.

They’re created by people like you.

Talented individuals who have a skill – something you know how to excel at better or different than anybody in the world – then woke up one day and suddenly discovered their businesses had turned into a really tough job. With terrible pay and very little time off.

Our Story

Debbie Roberts knows how you feel. She’s been in the professional bookkeeping game over 20 years and went through everything you could possibly imagine. Back in 2001, she was about 18 months into her bookkeeping business when it changed forever.

She met Peter Cook who had been working a business consultant and coach since the mid-1990s.

At that time in her life, Debbie was tearing her hair out. She was full up, working nights and weekends and wanted to grow her business. But, she was nervous about hiring other bookkeepers. She had cleaned up messes left behind by bad bookkeepers and didn’t want to risk her clients and her reputation to someone else.

But, she also didn’t want to turn away anyone who needed her help.

Then, after meeting Pete at a networking group, they chatted over coffee when he asked, “If you took the way you do bookkeeping out of your head and put it onto paper as a system and another bookkeeper was following that system, could you trust them then?” At that moment, the Pure Bookkeeping System was born.

Pete became Debbie’s coach and over the next decade she grew her business to the successful, profitable operation with a team of 12 highly skilled bookkeepers who worked for her (She’d later sell her business in 2014).

In 2010, Debbie and Pete decided to take what they learned in their journey to form Pure Bookkeeping to help other bookkeepers grow their businesses and that they did in 3 different continents – Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom.
