Vanessa has been invaluable in helping us with MYOB over the years and with accounts advice in general. She always responds to queries quickly and follows everything through to completion with great attention to detail. She is friendly, efficient, and very organised. Vanessa is always patient and explains everything so clearly. We would highly recommend her services.  Thank you, Vanessa!      Rachel and Merissa, G N Brewer Ltd

Vanessa from CheckBooks came to help us with our Xero software and she was awesome.  She got us back on track immediately.  She gave us lots of tips & tricks, set-up the Xero payroll and helped us with our GST returns.  She has pointed us in the right direction with all aspects of the software as well as tax filings online etc.  She now keeps an eye on us every couple of months and this works great for us!  We would highly recommend her services to anyone needing Xero assistance.   Todd Lamont and the team at EMCtwo Limited

We have been very fortunate to have the services of Vanessa Townsend of CHECKBOOKS to administer and manage our business bookwork and finances. Vanessa is most professional, knowledgeable, competent, and thorough.  Her attention to detail is second-to-none and she goes about her work in a highly organised and efficient manner. She has set up various types of businesses for us with the MYOB System and taught us how to use and utilise the systems for ourselves.  She is always readily approachable and able to answer any queries or problems we may encounter.  Vanessa has an excellent rapport with our Accounting firm.  We now always have our financial/end of year accounts sorted promptly and expertly by her, ready for the Accounting firm as soon as the financial year is finished.  This is a huge load off our shoulders and a big saving in time, energy and money for us.  Vanessa has been an instrumental and most valuable asset to us in the setting up of our new business venture also.                                                    Lesley and Brian Court of Courtco Racing Ltd and Lakes Industrial Park Ltd 

Vanessa has been an MYOB consultant to SARINZ since early 2009.  Vanessa was brought in specifically to give advice on how SARINZ could use the time & billing function to record accrued income.  She also provided written guides which have been an invaluable tool.  Vanessa was quick to understand what we required of her and presented a solution in a short period of time.

Vanessa is a true professional and very easy to work with.  Her work is always of a high standard and she pays a lot of attention to detail.  She has provided general monthly MYOB support as well as other services including GST reporting, creating excel reports from MYOB for quarterly financial reporting and regular reconciliation of time & billing.  We happily recommend Vanessa and CheckBooks for their MYOB expertise as well as the professional service they provide. David Shearer - Chief Executive - SARINZ (Search and Rescue Institute New Zealand)

Hi Vanessa, I wanted to pass on our thanks for the awesome job you did setting our company up with MYOB.  It's a very easy to use system - with the correct training - and has made our book keeping processes 100x simpler.  GST is now a 2 minute job and it's wonderful to see our progress with the variety of reporting systems available.  The end of the financial year this time was easy, something I wasn't saying last year!!    Your prompt responses to my often many emails is excellent and I'm now completely confident in our book keeping systems going forward.   Thanks again Vanessa, a superb service.    Shona Clarke - PhotoMaxing Limited  

 I couldn't have done without Checkbooks when I first set the business up with MYOB. Having no practical accounting experience meant I was very uncertain of how things should be done. Checkbooks did all the hard work, and gave me the confidence moving forward to manage things myself. Whenever I do have doubts or queries I know I can rely on Checkbooks for a quick and comprehensive reply.    Bee Online Web Solutions 

 The help and support that I got from checkbooks when setting up MYOB was fantastic. The setting up was done very professionally and altered to suit my personal situation. And the training was in depth and checkbooks made it very easy and simple to understand. It was great to have someone friendly and knowledgeable to help me with my accounting and make things so much easier. I would recommend them to anyone that wants to save some time and money with their accountancy fees.   Diane Brown

 Hi Vanessa, Just a quick email to say a huge 'Thank You' for the awesome work you did on our end of year accounts.You are a fantastic tutor and always handy to know you are there to call on if we need more 'technical' advice. I'll be telling all my friends about your service and would recommend you to any one using MYOB.
