A testimonial for Gary Jones of First Class Bookkeeping Services I used Gary’s services for my business, Creative Serum. He assisted me in preparing to convert my accounting system from MYOB to XERO. Not only did he complete this all on my behalf, he did it in a very timely manner, handled all of the correspondence with the suppliers and followed up to ensure a smooth transition. He then came out to my house after hours and provided training in the new system in an easy to understand format which allowed me to take over from that moment. I can guarantee that Gary is an excellent bookkeeper and will provide the same service to my customers as he has given me. I couldn’t be happier with his professionalism and knowledge in his feild. Thanks again Gary, I look forward to continuing to work with you over the years as my bookkeeping requirements increase with my business growth. Much Appreciated.

Recently I was fortunate to meet Gary on a professional development course. I was extremely impressed by his knowledge of small business. I believe that he would be a great asset to any business requiring a bookkeeper. Not only will they be employing a person with an in depth understanding of accounts but someone who has proved their business acumen with their own business.

I have been using Gary for quite some time now and since I was lucky enough to have met him through the BNI network, I have nothing but praise for his honesty, reliability and extremely high standards of work. Gary spent many hours getting my books into order at the very beginning to the point where things are very easy to follow and very little needs to be done on my behalf. I would highly recommend Gary to anyone looking for a great bookkeeper.
