Kathy was such a genuine assistance to our business and we are so grateful we found her!  She took our accounts, which were a bit of a mystery to us at the time, straightened them all out and then showed us how to get the most out of our Xero software and comply with all the necessary regulations.

Kathy is very approachable and continues to provide incredible ongoing assistance when we need it. She is efficient, pleasant to work with and we are very pleased with what she has done for our business. We have no hesitation in recommending Kathy to others.

We engaged Kathy Mitchell of Better Way Limited after a recommendation from our Accountants. We found her to be very professional and knowledgeable in solving the issues we had with Xero and also extending to the interaction between our Simproand Xero software. She was able to review and offer solutions and advice which resulted in a better work flow and functionality. We would have no hesitation in recommending Kathy to other business for friendly, professional computing software advice around Xero and MYOB.

Kathy has worked with us for a couple of years assisting us with general MYOB accounting and payroll issues.  She has the skills to quickly resolve any MYOB problems with little effort and manages to give very straight forward instructions which are easily understood. As small business owners we would highly recommend Kathy’s regular monthly support as well as her assistance by phone, email or remote access. We have always found Kathy to be extremely professional, well presented and friendly.  She is very capable in many areas of business and she has given us a great deal of advice to assist in running of our business more smoothly and efficiently.

Thanks so much for your generous support during our transition from Quickbooks to MYOB. You have made the process so straightforward and worry free. We have definitely chosen the best partner to assist us and we look forward to working with you in the future. We have a few minor things to iron out but MYOB is already proving to be far superior to Quickbooks for our purposes here at the Garden.


I found Kathy / Betterway from a MYOB help search. Amazing woman, very knowledgeable in MYOB and general accounting practice. She is fast, friendly, focused and has a great sense of humour. Kathy is happy to work side by side or can do this remotely. Highly recommended.

We have dealt with betterway on a couple of occasions now, last October for the GST changes and recently with an error I had made when rolling the Payroll. I have dealt with Kathy on both occasions and have found her just wonderful, and extremely helpful and easy to understand, and I would like to continue to use Betterway.

Many thanks for the great course, I finally find MYOB, invoice and bank statements make a lot more sense to me :) It used to give me a headache and now I find it slightly enjoyable especially when i get it right. Many thanks for your time and help.


The course was a great introduction to MYOB and you have are a very patient and knowledgeable teacher. I really appreciated the short-cut keys.

Thanks to Kathy Mitchell, my construction company that has been trading for ten years has been transformed into the sort of business that it should have been from the start.

I had spent five years in business trying to do it myself from the dusty pile of receipts jammed behind the seat. These were then badly organised onto a spreadsheet and never reconciled. My mum then brought me into the modern era as we moved to use an accounting software package for the next few years, but again this had many shortfalls and was still costing me large with accountant at the end of the year. As soon as Kathy took over the running of my books, everything fell into place. Everything balanced, debts were hauled in (where previously I didn’t know existed), the accountant barely needed a glance, and thanks to the Xero package, no more double ups or omissions.

Kathy is very well organised, structured, pragmatic and very good at saying what needs to be said, both to make good sense, and to say the big things that need to be said. She is driven, focused and time wise so always gets it done on time. I wish her well.
