Customer Testimonials

"We changed accountants from a large firm to work with Trish at Accounta because the service she offers is professional and friendly as well as being easy to understand and access. As small business owners, she has offered us invaluable advice and is always prompt to return calls, answer emails and find the best options for our business to grow and be successful. So glad we made the change, we can’t thank Trish enough for her work."
Far North Crossfit

"Being newly self-employed and facing the daunting task of filling in a tax return I was feeling out of my depth and struggling to know where to begin. I approached Trish Madison of Accounta and her easy going professional approach gave me the assurance I needed and the support to get this done. Instead of anxiety filled weeks of struggle I just followed her instructions and it was a breeze."
Patrick Williams

"We wanted someone who understood our small biz needs and would be there to answer accounting questions as and when they arose real time so to speak. Trish always called in person, explained in lay man terms. and did her research before meeting. she managed the solution before meeting and was able to implement there and then, nothing was a long drawn out hassle. Recommend her honest, thorough, sensitive approach to facilitate our changing biz needs. Thank you Trish."

Clare O'Malley

Multi small business owner

"We are first time property investors and we found Accounta to be very efficient. They have indeed provided us with very good quality service. Trish was very prompt in responding to our emails and she always keeps us on the loop about everything. We highly recommend their services to anyone looking for accounting services."
John and Paula

Property Investors

"A few years ago we changed both our fertiliser business and farm accounts to Trish from Accounta and we should have done it sooner. The cost of getting our accounts done has decreased. This decrease in costs has not reflected on the level of service, advise and information provided by Trish, which have all increased. Trish has always been prompt and informative with questions we ask and with getting the accounts completed. Trish is very approachable and easy to talk to."

E W Sandilands

"As a new director of a company unfamiliar with NZ tax and company regulations I engaged the services of Trish at Accounta to:

1. Handle NZ accounting, tax and payroll matters

2. Advise on NZ tax with multi country tax considerations

To date my experience with Trish at Accounta and the services she provides have been always positive. Requests and interactions are dealt with in a in a timely, efficient and courteous manner - often at hours to suit overseas timezones. Trish goes above and beyond what is expected by providing extra research advice on unique situations and challenges on overseas operations and NZ tax implications.  I have no hesitation recommending Trish at Accounta to other colleagues and small businesses as I believe she provides superior tax / accounting services and solutions."
