Case Study | Matt’s Surf Lodge

Business Sectors: Hotels & Hospitality

Matt’s Surf Lodge overlooks Fistral Bay in Newquay. Claimed to be Newquay’s original surf lodge, it’s become well established as a popular summer destination for surfers.

All non-core business activities are outsourced, allowing the staff to focus their energies on making sure guests have a memorable visit.

Matt’s Surf Lodge has been a client with us since 2004.


Client needs

We were approached by Matt’s Surf Lodge following recommendation by another client. The business is seasonal, so the key requirement was an outsourced bookkeeping service that had flexibility.


Although the business is in Newquay, we see the Managing Director just about as often as most of our other clients – which is quite rarely! The paperwork is posted or faxed to us and we do the rest.  We provide a ‘virtual accounts office’ without fixed overheads or the need to employ staff.  Although we’re not local to each other, we’re available on the end of the phone or email, so it’s almost like having an office next door.

Client comment

"Efficiency at its finest!

Asking Bonita a question is like consulting The Oracle. She always has the answer and she has it fast.

Dealing with ASFB is like having your own private bookkeeping team on the case."
