Sue Singleton has been a client at Accounting Solutions since they first opened their doors in 1998.
"When my husband Brett died three years ago Louise was one of the first people I turned to. At the time I had a whole host of complicated estates, trust accounts, companies and financial affairs to sort out. She flew to Queenstown and handled it all for me. She dealt with the IRD, our solicitors and other family members. It was a real load off my mind while I was dealing with the grief. She went way beyond what I'd have expected any accountant to do. She was extremely compassionate, kind and very generous with her time,' says Sue.
Sue has now re-partnered and is supporting her partner Rob Marshall in growing his business Marlborough Plumbing & Heating. Two years ago they moved their financial accounting business to Accounting Solutions where they look after all their accounts and provide mentoring and advice.
'I suggested to Rob that we move to Accounting Solutions because they're more proactive, holistic and knowledgeable than most accountants. While we haven't been working with them that long, there's already been a big shift in our attitude and our future plans for the business. Louise really is a great mentor in this regard,' says Sue.
Now Sue's daughter who lives in Perth also entrusts the team at Accounting Solutions with all her financial accounting needs.
'A good accountant is one of the most critical success factors in growing a small business,' reflects Sue. 'They might at first seem expensive but once you see how much they can improve your financial situation by minimising your tax and providing you with advice on the best structures for your business, you'll soon understand they're worth every penny.'
I'd thoroughly recommend Accounting Solutions to any business owner who wants to improve their financials and take their business to the next level.'
