“Business Like were referred to us from a close business colleague last year. I have been amazing at the level of communication and service they provide. After being with my previous accountant for 13 years, I have learnt more about my business in the last year than the previous 14. What a great team and what great service. Looking forward to working with you for years to come!.”

We use Xero for our day-to-day tracking of expenses and the pipeline, but Business Like NZ adds a real safety blanket around our financials.”

“In April 2012 we took over an existing business and since having previous dealings with Rachel Darlington there was no hesitation to use Business Like as our new company accountant.

Rachel, Rose & the team are always available to answer the most basic questions and help us grow our business.  They keep us on our toes and give great advise on a monthly basis.

We appreciate the down to earth friendliness of Rachel & her team and would not hesitate to refer them to any other companies (or individuals) who require great accountants! ”

“Rachel is a breath of fresh air when it comes to accountants! Not only does she brighten your day with a positive attitude, she can hold a conversation without putting you to sleep by making the difficult and often technical accounting jargon FUN!

We have been with Rachel now for nearly ten years and she has always attacked our accounts with passion and a desire to achieve the best financial results for us. She listens to our needs (which change regularly) and provides straight forward advice and solutions.

If you want an accountant who takes you seriously, follows up regularly and enjoys keeping up with the latest in accounting skills to benefit you financially as a client, then we thoroughly recommend Rachel at Business Like NZ Ltd.”
