Our family has been with the firm for 50 odd years. I have dealings with other accountants through boards and committees that I'm on, some of them are rather slow to get things done and I have found that it is not the case with Milnes Beatson. There are a lot of people in this district finding it pretty hard going, so it's actually been great to have good quality advice.

I really feel like it is a very professional company and I have super trust in Karen, she pays really close attention to details and our business, at times, has been complex. Karen has been with us through different stages in our business, from share milking to farm purchase. We run two companies, and she is helping us transfer everything between the two, to get it into one. She is very thorough, is always able to answer any questions we might have, always has our accounts prepared in a timely manner, and they are of a really professional standard. She is also willing to come out to our place, which is extremely important for our sort of business.

We have a good relationship with Dave and enjoy our relaxed but professional dealings with him. Recently we have undergone some complex structural / shareholding changes and have valued the advice and support provided during this. The whole Milnes Beatson staff are very approachable and responsive to our needs, sometimes at short notice. A great local business to partner with.

Our relationship with our previous accountant was a serious problem. We have Trusts, a Company and a Partnership, and Grant worked with our Solicitors to resolve all the problems and get us back on track. Within one year we have done what we tried to do for about ten years with the previous accountant. I enjoy that as they are in Motueka, Grant is usually available and I can bowl in and have a chat. It's great having a relationship between us and our Accountant.

We were dissatisfied with our previous Accountant. What we have found with Milnes Beatson and particularly with Karen, that communication has been great. They get everything done on time.

Grant has been doing our books for about 15 years. We followed Grant across from his previous firm. Grant is very respectful ... we can always get through when we call ... he helps me work through matters.
