What Taranaki clients have to say

The +MORE Taranaki team is part of our story. Their expert accounting advice and expertise is essential to us at the end of every year.

Jonathan & Christie Jimenez

Owners, Pinoy Food Shop

Paul has been a fantastic support network as a new business owner over the past four years, his ability to break down the jargon into a user-friendly process is commendable. Paul always goes above and beyond for us as a client, providing industry information and changes outside of the required role of our accountant. Fast with communication and completing projects for us, we appreciate the high level of service we receive and would recommend any new business owner starting out to touch base with Paul.

Stephanie Sloan

Director, Top Paddock Consulting Limited

Paul has been my number-one supporter and financial advisor for over 8 years. As a small business owner trying to get your head around all the things you need to manage at once can be tough, but Paul took control of the ship for my Accounts and has guided me through the good and the bad times with great success. It wasn’t just about the numbers either – we had regular check-ins while I was establishing the business, and the consultancy side of his service was second to none. He would answer all my silly questions and always offer support. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him personally as an accounting professional.
