Testimonials

See what our customers are saying about us:

 
"Company-X relies on DB Chartered for all the usual accounting stuff but way more than that we see them as partners in our business.

DB Chartered take initiative and help get stuff done and make things happen. For example I love the charts of business performance delivered even without request as part of their service. That's DB Chartered taking initiative and saying "Here you should be monitoring these business success indicators".

They are an essential part of the advisory team developing overall strategy, growth funding, tactical and operational decisions. Having someone else focused on your business like it's their own and sharing in the thought leadership to success is invaluable. You can't ask for more than that."

"Kessels & Associates Ltd (trading as Kessels Ecology) has been a very satisfied client of DB Chartered Accountants for several years now.

We appreciate the professional yet approachable manner of David, Pam and the rest of the team.

They have a genuine interest in our business – a small but busy environmental science service consultancy - and are always on hand to assist. We value being able to regularly meet with David and to assess how the business is tracking one on one, with the opportunity to discuss future plans and options. David is also able to provide advice on a broad range of business development and strategy matters, which we’ve greatly valued.

We can’t recommend David and his team highly enough."

"We have complete faith in David and the team at DB Chartered Accountants.

There is never a time when we have not been able to contact them with a query, whether accountancy, business or more personal matters.

They are perfectionists in everything they do and never make you feel inadequate. I am sure it must be company policy to ensure we, the clients, completely understand.

This is an awesome team and I have complete confidence in them, and no hesitation in recommending them."

"We have found the staff at DB Chartered Accountants to be approachable, helpful with financial matters and give practical advice and sound support.

They are able to deal with complicated financial issues competently and report back in plain English, rather than using accountant jargon.

They take time to answer questions so that we know what is happening.

We know that we can rely on DB Chartered Accountants and that our financial matters are in good hands with who we can trust.

I find it reassuring that no matter how small the query is, I am taken seriously."

"When I needed an accountant, a friend recommended we call DB Chartered Accountants.

David and Pam made it very easy to get everything sorted and they also helped me bring the business into the online world. They advised us as to what was needed every step of the way and helped explain everything to us in a language we could understand.

They have helped us turn the business into a very healthy one, also helping us make it into a Ltd company.

Anytime we need a question answered they are only a phone call or email away and always answer promptly, sometimes with extra ideas we hadn’t thought of.

I would recommend DB Chartered Accountants to anybody who needs an easy, no fuss accounting firm."

I’ve always found them responsive and happy to offer sensible, straightforward advice.

They provide with a degree of confidence that the financial side of my business is robust and that my financial affairs are in order."

"We have been working with DB Chartered Accountants for over 7 years and in that time they have been very approachable, efficient and ahead of the eight ball with reminders of upcoming tax obligations.

I am no longer based in Hamilton but knowing that the team are just a phone call away and that things are in good hands, allows me to focus on my business while on the road.

David, Pam and the team are always quick to answer any queries and will discuss things in layman's terms. They work with you through the harder times as well as the good.

If you want an accountant who listens and will do things with accuracy and professionalism then I have no hesitation in recommending DB Chartered Accountants to you."

"As a real estate salesperson operating in Hamilton, I have found it vital to have a great accountant. Not content with selling just the occasional property, I have been single-minded about operating an efficient, healthy and growing business. This has meant performing at high levels while providing outstanding service to every client. To help me achieve this, I have invested in building a team of support staff, which currently consists of two staff members in selling roles and one in administration. We see DB Chartered Accountants as an integral part of our team as they are a “one stop shop” looking after all the book-keeping aspects of the business.

DB Chartered Accountants take care of all my tax and reporting requirements, from GST, KiwiSaver contributions and PAYE to end of year books and taxation advice. A lot of my business growth now revolves around time management. By working with DB Chartered Accountants my time input into the accounting side of the business is now negligible, leaving me free to work on my core business rather than be bogged down by the “red tape” aspects.

Pam from DB Chartered Accountants has looked after my accounts for several years now. Previously I had been through three other accountants in the space of two years. I was disappointed by the level of service provided by these firms and after missing deadlines for payments to IRD and dealing with the ensuing penalties, as well as being charged over-zealous fees, I felt very uneasy that nobody was overseeing my needs. I needed better assistance. After leaving the last of these firms, I was referred to what is now DB Chartered Accountants as they were trustworthy and reliable. This could not have been more accurate.

Fortunately my previous experiences are behind me and I now get a courteous reminder from Pam when a deadline is looming and action is required – and I no longer fear unjustified bills arriving in the letter box from my accountant. I enjoy working with the firm and am known by name by most of the staff which gives me confidence that I am being properly looked after. I appreciate being able to pick up the phone and call when I have questions. I would recommend working with DB Chartered Accountants without hesitation."
