About Us

Business Knowledge Limited (BKL) is your personal accounting and finance team, and a whole lot more!

Established in 1996, BKL is a business that’s all about business. We’re here to do the things you don’t want to do yourself, like GST and PAYE – and be an adviser and sounding board for more complex matters like business planning and family trusts.

Become a BKL client and you’ll soon discover that we’re passionate about helping you and your business to succeed. We understand the realities of owning a business (between us we’ve run a few ourselves) and we have the specialist expertise to get you on track and heading in the right direction.

We love technology, so you can expect some bright ideas for working smarter. We also like learning about people, so you can expect solutions that are right for you. And we know the value of good relationships, so you can expect outstanding service from your BKL account manager and everyone else in the BKL team.

Most of all, we like working with people who are as focused on the future as we are.

Our People


Officially a ‘Partner’, but a man with many hats… tax adviser, business development consultant, acquisition specialist, mentor, and CFO for a number of clients

This multitude of roles reflects Brent’s 27+ years of experience in accounting and business management – and his passion for supporting enterprise growth and helping people to not only succeed but enjoy the results of all their hard work. Having run his own businesses in the past, he understands the highs, low and everything that happens in-between, and the value of independent, professional advice and support.

One of BKL’s founders, Brent’s proud to have worked with a huge range of clients, from ground-breaking start-ups – including Trade Me in its early years – to well established businesses preparing for sale.

“I get a huge buzz out of the stuff we do, and our clients appreciate our proactive approach and practical solutions,” he says.

Our Value

We don’t only work for you, we work with you.

The whole thing starts with a conversation, so that we can understand who you are, how you work and what you’d like us to do. From there we’ll do everything we can to make your life easy – so you can get on with growing your business. We’re pretty good at spotting ‘better business’ opportunities and we love helping our clients with practical solutions and advice.

This is where we really bring value to our relationship.


BKL’s services are whatever you want them to be. We can take care of all your standard financial and accounting needs, but once we get to know you and your business, we can then dig deep and really get some good stuff going that’s tailored to you.
