Trusted by Businesses across Australia

Sally Poulton has been performing bookkeeping duties for my company and I am delighted to say how impressed I have been with her friendly and accommodating personality. She has a very cheerful and outgoing nature and has shown a real willingness to go the extra mile with whatever task we have given her. At times this has meant working late nights in order to complete last minute urgent tasks we have thrown her way. Sally is very knowledgeable in her area of expertise and has an innate ability to be able to explain what is required in “layman” terminology. She is very good with cloud computing systems and software which assists clients working remotely. One particular piece of work I gave her was to assist me in reconciling a year’s worth of invoicing and receipts which was done very quickly and successfully!

We sourced Sally from First Class Accounts Ballarat when we first started our small business. With little bookkeeping experience I found it all very daunting. Sally quickly put my mind at easy. I find Sally refreshingly easy to speak with and extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of our bookkeeping needs. Sally has a way of explaining things which made it all easy to understand. It has been a wonderful experience and privilege to work with Sally, and I would definitely recommend her services.
