Our Team

Verena Meintjes

On Task Bookkeeping Ltd was founded by Verena Meintjes in 2018 after realising there was a niche in the market for qualified bookkeepers to help small to medium sized businesses in New Zealand.
After more than 30 years, bookkeeping experience and exceptional customer service skills has grown her business from strength to strength.
As a company, it is important to know your numbers and understand your cash flow.

Hobbies & Interests
I prioritise an active and balanced lifestyle that includes daily dog walks, invigorating jogs, rejuvenating yoga sessions, and engaging active gym workouts. Additionally, I have a deep passion for traveling and truly relish the experience of cruising. Alongside these pursuits, I find immense joy in cherishing quality moments with my loved ones, embracing the warmth of family and the companionship of friends.

Susan Costello

Senior Bookkeeper
I have been working with On Task Bookkeeping since August 2021.
I have had to use critical thinking to interpret the meaning of business records, identify trends, patterns, or irregularities in business transactions. Organisation is the key to help me prioritise and plan my weekly tasks. To meet deadlines dictated by either the client or IR filing, I have had to have good time management, and used this to structure my schedule accordingly.

My commitment to my clients is always 110%.

Hobbies & Interests
I am dedicated to maintaining an active lifestyle, prioritising regular walks and engaging in various fitness activities to stay in shape. Exploring my passion for culinary arts, I enjoy experimenting with new and wholesome recipes that promote good health. As I envision my retirement, one of my aspirations is to embark on a musical journey by learning to play the guitar.


Barketing Manager
I am a super friendly large labradoodle. My job is to alert my boss lady when someone is at the door. It might be a client, a courier driver or the cleaner. I always meet and greet with a big bark, followed with a tail wag and if I like you, I might give you a big lick at the door. I will let you know all of this so that you know what to expect. I absolutely love it when the clients give me a good tummy rub. Sometimes my boss finds me sleeping at work, but I think it is okay as she never growls at me.

Hobbies & Interests
I find great joy in engaging in regular walks, as it not only promotes physical well-being but also provides an opportunity to appreciate the world around me. Additionally, I have mastered the art of resting during the day, ensuring that I am well-rested and rejuvenated. If my boss ever needs to step out to attend to a client, rest assured that I am consistently alert, even during moments of slumber, knowing that her return is imminent.
