"When I first found Consol accounting on Google I thought that they must be too good to be true. Then I talked to them on the phone and I was almost certain they were too good to be true. Luckily for us they weren’t. The customer service, price and ease of use make this company out of this world. I could not recommend them any more. They are utterly seamless to integrate and effective as can be. "

Curtis and Katie Hacon Director, FiTiki Limited

"I had put off finding an accountant for a while because of the cost and perceived hassle however after my first consult with Consol, I immediately wished I had connected with them sooner. Consol are responsive, affordable and easy to deal with. Being able to outsource this aspect of my business has allowed me to focus more energy on the parts of my work that I love. "

Dr Rebecca Herald Clinical Psychologist

The ‘Switching over’ process was really simple, after the initial set up process I can track and log my company’s financial activity with ease and accuracy. By far the most efficient and helpful service I’ve had with accounting companies. Thank you"

Vivien Ye Aesthetic Nurse Specialist, Vivip Limited

"I started out in full-time private practice over a year ago and also registered as a limited company. I love doing my work and seeing my clients, but I soon discovered just how much time doing the financials could take up. In the first year, I worked on my own tax returns and company statements, but was unsure I had done them “right” and really wanted an accountant’s expertise and guidance. From my first phone call to Andrew Joo of Consol Accounting Limited, I could tell that this service would meet my needs. He has been quick to respond, patient with me, great at teaching lots and is a Xero master user. I find the system easy to use now, and feel encouraged to get the most out of my business and confident in knowing that I will meet my tax obligations. Compared to how long it took me to struggle at doing this on my own, there is clear value in getting the professionals to do my accounting."

It’s really easy now the business is booming and all my accounting is taken care of so I can enjoy the fruits of my labour. I still reach out occasionally and have the answer super quick.. thanks to Consol."

Karl Jones Director, Retail Resilience

"I had just started out in business and soon realised that someone was going to have to help me with my accounting and tax compliance functions. I was very conscious of the need to be vigilant about incurring any new costs, consequently I did a fair bit of research. I came up with the conclusion that I could get everything I wanted, under one roof, from Consol Accounting, at the most competitive rate I could find on the market. It was a win-win. After joining their team I discovered there were a lot of loose ends to sow-up before I could start functioning effectively, and focus solely on running the business side. Andrew, the Founder from Consol Accounting, was an absolute God-send. He was very personal and approachable, and made setting everything up from scratch so easy and so quickly. I’ve basically been running on auto-pilot each month ever since. Just as I had planned. Thanks for your service, guys, best decision I made."
