Sam provided me with one-on-one training on Xero which was thorough, informative and exactly what our business needed.  The service he provided on the day and follow-up support was great.  Sam was quick to respond and helpful the whole way through.  With his expertise and advice, I feel 100 times more confident and competent in using Xero.  I’d highly recommend Tall Books to anyone needing training

"I recently started my own business and was struggling to get organised in Quickbooks. Sam helped me get up and running, setting up everything correctly. He's a very good communicator and made the entire process very easy to understand. Thanks to Sam's help, I'm no longer overwhelmed by the accounting side of things, and have the confidence to get on top of my expenses!"

I came to Sam through a referral and they were not wrong! He cleaned my books in a very thorough and professional way. When the training session came around, I thought I had some knowledge on how to use QBO but he really showed me the magic. Sam was patient and responsive, answered all my silly questions and walked me through the best way to record expenses He helped me create categories to suit MY BUSINESS needs. I highly recommend you go to Sam for your accounting needs he will tailor his services according to your needs!

Samuel is a champ. If you're feeling clueless about your bookkeeping like we were, he comes in and walks you through it very patiently.
Would thoroughly recommend his services.

I approached Samuel because I had recently started my own business and was in way over my head with the financial side of it all. 
Samuel was amazing! He set me up with some very user-friendly accounting software, assisted me to enter all of my spendings and earnings, organised my budget, my financial goals, my invoicing, and client contacts. He showed me where most of my money was being lost and where I was making the highest sales, by collating my data and presenting it in an easy to understand format.  He has been available to answer my questions, my emails, my phone calls basically around the clock and has honestly made me feel as though he is as invested in the financial success of business as I am! 
His wealth of knowledge, his can-do attitude, his ability to problem solve, his attention to detail, and his patience with coaching through this whole process, has been outstanding! 
I highly recommend enlisting the assistance of Samuel, to lighten the already enormous load of work, that comes with running your own business, and to give you, not only the peace of mind that your finances and books are accurate and up-to-date, but also that personal, one-on-one support that is so refreshing at such a busy time.
