We make Sense of your Dollars.

About Us

Dollars & Sense Consulting is a boutique bookkeeping company started by Helen Haines. We specialize in small to medium businesses in all fields, and in particular hospitality, health & wellness and trades. Each of these industries come with a unique set of implications and specifications and it’s often best to have a bookkeeper who knows a bit of the ins and outs of the industry itself.

We are here to help you do what you do best — run and build your business, by providing tailored bookkeeping solutions.

Helen Haines is the Director and founder of Dollars + Sense Consulting. Helen is passionate about seeing small businesses succeed and takes a holistic approach to their business by getting to know why they do what they do, not just the what or how. Helen has a range of financial experience in compliance, small business advisory and operational administration. She helps businesses grow, thrive and achieve their goals every day.
