Tracey has been the Marshlands Electrical Ltd accountant since day 1 back in 2009.
All the advice given before starting out in business was to ‘get a good accountant’, well we certainly did that!
Tracey has always been professional and provided us with sound advice which has freed us up to focus on Electrical work rather than accounting issues.

Thanks to David, Caterina and the team at David Ward Charted Accountants for taking care of our company tax needs, ensuring all reporting and tax payments are accurate and up to date.

This has freed up my time to focus on growing my business and take time for lifestyle.

We have been dealing with Tracey at David Ward accountants for a number of years. She is always quick to answer our questions and help out. If needed, she is happy to call out to our business. The best thing though is she explains things in layman’s terms and we can actually understand it. One important thing from a small business point is, she is never slow in letting you know when you have fallen behind or forgotten to do something regarding IRD. All staff at David Ward that I have dealt with have a lovely manner that makes them easy to deal with.

A job that would take me a life time Joanne seems to do with ease and can easily explain to us whom aren’t savvy in this area. It gives us confidence to know that Jo is so extremely professional in her approach to everything she does and still so down to earth.
