What do our clients say about us?

As a first time small business owner with no knowledge of the Tax Laws or ever having dealt with IRD as a company, our experience with The Tax Lady was superlative. Sophie guided us through the whole process explaining every intricate procedure associated with filing the the tax as a small business. Sophie was very prompt, patient and always there to help us during the entire process, totally exceeding the expectations we had from our Tax agent. Great service, good people could not have asked for anything more.

We had been very lax in our tax returns and were looking down the barrel of a huge bill with IRD. Ian from The Tax Lady took us under his wing, guided us, was very patient with us and managed to work it out that with all our paperwork and lots of his skill and knowledge we owed next to nothing! We can't express how professional, understanding and above all a down to earth accountant that Ian is who spoke in layman's terms so we could understand everything in our time of confusion and stress. Ian is our life saver and he now has our business for ever!! Thanks to all the team at The Tax Lady – I have no hesitation in recommending their services.

I have been a client of The Tax Lady for years, and can recommend them. The team bring so much skill and efficiency to what they do, and as well as that, they are friendly and helpful.

When I first contacted The Tax Lady, my business was in trouble. My accounts (that I had been paying another agency to do) were in a mess and I was about to undergo an audit by the IRD. If you are a small business owner who's experienced this, you'll know how frightening that is. My initial meeting was with Ian and he immediately made it all seem manageable, in fact we spent most of the time talking about my dogs! Then I met the rest of the tight knit team that is the Tax Lady, who made me feel welcome and part of their family. I think the fact there's such a strong female presence is what makes it so welcoming and homemade cakes and biscuits are always on offer! They then worked tirelessly to help me solve my discrepancies with the IRD and with their patience and support I slowly began to understand GST and most importantly, how to be on top of it. I am no longer frightened of GST and the IRD and with their guidance I am now always financially prepared for my end of year taxes. One less thing to worry about. I cannot recommend them highly enough, if you are an individual or a small business owner who wants to feel valued as a client and needs a more 'hands on' approach, these are the 'ladies' for you. (Sorry, ladies and 'guy'!) 

- J. Souness, Business Owner

We have been with the Tax Lady for nearly a year after moving from one of the bigger accounting companies. We love the personal touch the Tax Lady offers, the easy service, the way we are not charged for questions, and the super friendly staff. I would highly recommend this company to anyone needing a set of great accountants! 

- Linda & Craig Scoble

The Tax Lady made the process very easy for me. It's been one less thing I have had to worry about this year! Responsive, Supportive and Knowledgeable. I would recommend The Tax Lady if you are looking for a local Accountant
