I highly recommend Business Buddy Limited

I like the really friendly staff at Business Buddy and how they always return my call within a short period of time. They have set me up on Xero (which is almost sexy) I know where we are going with our money, and where it goes. I appreciate how I can ask a silly question and be treated with respect.
I highly recommend Business Buddy Limited.

The Seminar Series at Business Buddy is essential to any business.

Essential advise was effectively communicated along with tips needed to establish better debtor management. Immediate benefit is achieved for our IT Business in relation to setting new mechanisms and redefining existing terms, which ultimately help improve cash flow.

Approachable, honest and keen to assist at all times.

We have been in business now for over 2 years with Business Buddy as our Accountants and have found them to be approachable, honest and keen to assist at all times. Being new to the business arena, we are never made to feel inadequate and are steered in the right direction with good advice and teaching skills. We are very pleased that a friend recommended them!

I feel confident that they have my best interests at heart, I also don't feel like a number or just a client with Business Buddy, I feel like a friend.

I find that Business Buddy are very quick and helpful in their response to any request. The Inland Revenue requirements and tax terms are sometimes very hard to understand and Business Buddy explain very clearly all the everyday aspects of accounting that I find daunting. Business Buddy are very good at keeping me informed on what's due and what to expect and when to pay, so I certainly don't have any problems with Inland Revenue. I feel confident that they have my best interests at heart, I also don't feel like a number or just a client with Business Buddy, I feel like a friend. I believe that my business has been so much more profitable with Business Buddy handling my accounts. I feel confident that all has been done and the best advise is being given constantly. No question is silly to them! They are very happy to explain everything in a language I can understand and that's important to me.

We have been a client of Business Buddy for the past ten years and have enjoyed a good working relationship with both Barbara Astill and Kirsten Hawke.

Both Kirsten and Barbara have provided us with sound and professional advice. We have always found them to be very approachable, obliging and to provide us with sound, no nonsense direction in our day to day business activities.

Their wealth of information, at times based on their own experiences has proven invaluable to our success and I would have no hesitation in recommending their services.

Business Buddy Limited has assisted myself and my husband in setting up 3 businesses, a rental property and advice on other various investments. We have found their advice to be sound and informative, while still respecting and supporting our wishes. Their wealth of information, at times based on their own experiences has proven invaluable to our success and I would have no hesitation in recommending their services.

Every time I phoned with a question nothing seemed to be a problem... I would not hesitate recommending them.

A few years ago, I needed to engage an accountant for the first time in my life. Kirsten was recommended by a friend. Went for a quick chat and was put at ease by her ability to talk straight and address my concerns. Every time I phoned with a question nothing seemed to be a problem e.g I had a cheque go missing from the IRD and Business Buddy came to my rescue – try that yourself! I would not hesitate recommending them.

‘We’ve worked with Business Buddy since 2007. When we purchased our business Kirsten provided us with excellent advice, assisted us in setting up the company and made things stress free, which was great. She also recommended Xero to us and we’re really enjoying using it. They are not your typical accountant, they’re up-to-date with new technology and they’re not afraid to try new opportunities to benefit their clients. We feel that Kirsten and the team are our business advisors, it’s never a problem to get their help with any questions or queries and they provide excellent client training and are very patient. They’ve also helped us get the most out of Xero and Add-ons to help meet our business requirements.’

Like every small business, we needed to have an Accountant we can call upon for sound business advice, support and financial direction.

In tough trading conditions, the need to manage cash flow, and keeping on top of book work is critical. Of particular interest to us was that Business Buddy is a business partner with Xero, and we were in need of some help using this package. Today, we have 100% clarity of our financial position and look forward to our business review meetings with Kirsten. If you are looking for a business buddy, we would recommend Business Buddy
