What People Say about BBB

Great businesses know great businesses. Over 90% of our clients find us by way of recommendation from a business colleague or accountant. What our clients and colleagues say about us are like little diamonds. Here’s a selection of the people we are proud to work alongside:


General Bookkeeping Maintenance

"The best thing about BBB is that you know that they are all trained to a specific standard. It gives me great peace of mind knowing that everything’s in order and I know where we are financially on a weekly basis – it’s invaluable".

Tony Materne – Partner
MPH Architects

RAIA Award Winner


Temporary Bookkeeping Cover

"BBB responded quickly to fill the temporary vacancy that came at a critical time and had left us stranded. It provided us with a professional and cost-effective solution until we found just the right person for our organisation. I can’t recommend them highly enough."

Phil Ingerson – Managing Director
Intec Group

Information Technology Related Services


"Due to emergency leave required by a key finance staff member, we found ourselves under-resourced at a critical time. Finding someone at such short notice with the right experience and skill sets seemed near impossible. We invited BBB to look at our challenge. Within 24 hours they visited and took a detailed brief… 48 hours later we had Jo sitting at a desk producing outcomes. Jo was that good that we kept her, and she has fast become an integral part of the Qattro Team… really well done BBB… fast, professional and reliable."

Budgeting and Planning

"We tried for a few years to run our Budget and Business Planning internally without success. This will be our second year with Better Business Basics. For a fixed fee they help us prepare our Budget for the year, maintain it throughout the year and report on results in a no-fuss set of monthly reports. We couldn’t do without them!"

Mel Phillis – Office Manager
Phillis Real Estate

Winner of Messenger Local Business Awards 2009


System Troubleshooting

"We’ve used Better Business Basics for a number of years as our safety net. Their wealth of knowledge and experience means that they can troubleshoot any issues with our system quickly and without fuss. It’s our insurance policy to make sure that what we’re recording is accurate".

Jude Tolley - Proprietor
Jonathan Tolley Wines

Wholesaler to some of the best wines in Australia


Audit Preparation

"They offer such a great support service of checking and reconciling what’s been done throughout the year. It just gives us the confidence that everything is where it should be before the audit is completed".

Sophie Karas – Administration Manager
Liquor Hospitality and Miscellaneous Union (LHMU)



"We’ve been a customer of BBB’s for a while now. When the offer came for us to switch to the new fixed fee, it was an obvious choice. The level of transparency of the fee structure and the detailed list of what the fee included made the decision an easy one. It’s great…now I know for sure what this area of my business is going to cost for the next 12 months."

Craig Packer – Managing Director
