What our clients say
“When Annè appraised our business we didn't just get the numbers. She gave us a full understanding of the valuation and selling process, a clear gauge of the marketplace as well as ongoing support while the business was for sale. Annè's work has been incredibly thorough and her moral support unwavering. We can't thank or recommend her enough.”— Sean Haggerty, The Surf Emporium
“We love working with Annè. Her personable and professional approach plus her way to really take interest and be part of our team makes her the best accountant we have ever had. Yes she does our accounts- but that's not only half of what she does for us. We find the coaching advice and strategic thinking that Annè does enables us to continue to strive for success and never become complacent. It seems that our goals are her goals- and she puts everything into that.”— Miranda Harrison, Activ8 NZ Limited
“Running a small business has a lot of challenges and since meeting Annè we have been able to manage our business more efficiently with one-on-one training using Workflow Max and Xero Accounting software. Annè is there every step of the way providing guidance and advice when needed. She is genuinely interested in the success of our business and her ongoing support has been invaluable. We would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone!”— Kyle & Jo Kake, Mason Street Architectural Drafting Ltd
“Anne challenges you to think outside the box, to grow your business, understand the figures. Seeing Anne really gives you that boost of confidence and motivation to keep going especially in times when you feel it’s a struggle. We love the format of her sessions, the goal setting and 90 day action plans and it is great to have someone outside of your business to be accountable to.”— Helen & Glenn Fulton, GoFox Electrical Whangarei
“Annè is the only accountant I have come across who would always go out of her way to ensure all our business needs are met. Annè has enabled me to confidently run my accounts through Xero, and is only a phone call away when I need support. Having all my financial information at my fingertips has been key to our business’ success. Annè is a key member of my team and I wouldn’t want it any other way.”— Lily Grau, Amici Limited
“Working with Annè has been an absolute game changer. Not only do we get her accounting expertise but what she offers in regards to business planning, strategy and advice is invaluable. Whatever we throw at her she takes on with confidence and we feel that we can really trust her and are in good hands with our business.”— Nikki Clarke, Cadenshae Limited
