I would like to take a moment to thank Joanne & her team for her continued support of our business the past 3 years. Myself & my husband have been running a small but successful business that has been earning our family a comfortable living since 2005. Over our time in business we have used a number of different Accountants but when we moved to Tauranga in 2013 we were looking for a new way of doing our accounts. Due to the movement of online accounting & the self management of our accounts thru Xero software we decided the need for costly chartered accountants (who often didn't have the help or correct advise when needed anyway) was something we wanted to move away from. After researching Accountants in Tauranga we meet up with Joanne and have never looked back! She prepares our annual accounts and files these with the IRD in a timely fashion and helps us when we have direct needs for up to date Business Accounts thru out the year that may arise from financing with the bank or such things as family tax credits. She has great advice when we do need to understand that little bit more about our business and has never laughed at some of my unknowledgeable questions! Our books are in the best organised & accurate condition they have ever been in and I put this down to our team effort with Joannes abilities and skills from her extensive book keeping knowledge. She has a fine knowledge of Xero & this is something we love. I recommend her to anyone in business wanting to have a friendly, reliable & competent accountant, no matter what size your business.

Jo and Kate are the best, I know for sure I would be a total mess without them. The service they provide is fast and efficient, if I ever have a query or need to know something business related they are just a phone call or email away. I would highly recommend their services to everyone.

Jo is the accounts and finance manager for Tauranga Women's Refuge. She has proven to be efficient, friendly, professional and very knowledgeable. We have greatly reduced our administration costs by outsourcing to her - she comes to the office and also works remotely to give us the best service. I have found her to be 100% aware of our client's needs for confidentiality so would have no hesitation in recommending her personally & the business she runs, absolutely. Hire Jo you'll be impressed!

Body and Motion Ltd, have been fortunate enough to contract the exceptional services of Joanne Martin and team. These include xero (accounting and reconciling) GST returns and payroll for a staff of 7 and 6 part time employees, as well as debt management of they gym. Being the biggest gym in the Waipa, Joanne takes care of reconciling and managing debt for 500 payers. Invoices and reports are sent out weekly and we do not have to remind or remember; Admin and Accounting Solutions are on top of their game. What makes Admin and Accounting Solutions exceptional, is that all work is done remotely. All communication is done via telephone, email and skype - without any problems. We find working with Jo and her team very easy and efficient. We receive weekly updates on all debt management, and daily communicate with each other on every day running of the gym and reconciling of payments. Jo and her team's ind-depth understanding of the gym's systems and operations have made them indispensable to us, trusting them completely and fully with all things financial. Reconciling and managing such a busy and big facility's accounts, with so many members of staff, having access to administration, is not any easy task - but Joanne takes this in her stride and has everything calmly under control.

Body and Motion Ltd highly recommend Joanne and her team at Admin and Accounting Solutions for all financial work. They truly are the best.

We are so glad we found Jo to help us with our accounts. She is perfect for a small business like ours, always showing a genuine interest and enthusiasm. She is quick, efficient and professional while also remaining very approachable. Best of all she copes easily with my way of doing things! For every question I have asked her I have received a really helpful response with useful suggestions. We will definitely continue using Jo's service, knowing our business accounts are in excellent hands.

Jo, thank you so much for your advice/training with Xero. You have made the change from MYOB to Xero seamless. However, when I do have the occasional 'melt down', as soon as I hear your voice I feel all is well in my world. Thank you for being you!

Bev Bolton, Spot on Fire Services - Waikato


You want your books whipped into shape. Joanne will do it. You need answers evenings and weekend. Joanne's your girl. Do I think she needs new clients? Hell no! I want to keep this wonderful lady all to myself.

Roy Edwards, Craftcorp Group


We can quite honestly say that Jo from Admin & Accounting Solutions has made all the difference to our business. Like most business owners, running your business and keeping on top of bills, book keeping and the rest becomes hard work. What used to be the biggest headache for us is all dealt with by Jo; an enormous weight off our shoulders. Because of Jo’s hard work we have been able to start an additional business venture. Jo also manages all accounts for our new business and we can now concentrate on building our 2nd business and taking it to the next level. Phenomenal service! Never before have we received answers or solutions so promptly whether it is by phone or email. On top of this, Jo is approachable, friendly & treats us with respect making sure WE feel confident and at ease with her advice. We would have no hesitation in recommending Jo’s services to any business.Our only regret is that we didn’t meet Jo sooner. Thank you so much for everything.

Our business is small but has some complicated accounting from time to time, with international transactions and payments. Jo at Admin and Accounting Solutions is readily available within a very short time frame if not immediately. We use the Xero program and it is very helpful that we can both see what the problem is at the same time, (Xero being an online accounting solution). She works with us to discover the problems (that we make!) and helps us to identify ways to do our accounting and filing better. We find Admin and Accounting Solutions VERY affordable – unlike expensive accountants, and Jo is so helpful we wouldn't be without her. Thanks Jo!

Learning Xero over the phone is easy and convenient as I get to stay home with the family and get the accounting done! I've never had any formal training for accounting what so ever.My husband and I decided to work for ourselves and I needed help with accounting fast! Xero was recommended to us as a simple system to grasp and help came with it! Yes I was set! Jo's easy manner makes learning accounting and Xero more rewarding, I can ask for help any time.Any mistakes I make can be corrected with Jo being on her computer and phone in Tauranga and I on mine in Hamilton it's that simple its great!

Fiona Jenkins, AMS Waikato


I confirm that we were fortunate enough to engage Admin and Accounting Solutions as our bookkeeping company. Our business is based out of Australia, therefore our correspondence with Jo is all electronically or over the phone, we have found her assistance and presence to detail very helpful. We support Admin and Accounting Solutions as a company that can be relied upon with a strong client support attitude.
