I was a start up business and knew nothing about accounting or starting a new business, and I was a little nervous and overwhelmed. Sidekick helped me to set up and develop a successful business and also provided me with contacts should I require further assistance. In my first meeting with Sidekick they provided me with advice which would result in tax savings that covered their annual fees! So essentially for me their services are free, in addition to this they have provided ongoing accounting support which has saved me and my company money and stress. As a result of their help I have no concerns around my businesses tax and GST requirements. I have already and will continue to recommend Sidekick to any business. My experience with them over the last 5 years has been fantastic. Highly recommended.Donovan Van Kekem
I was stressing big time trying to figure out how to tackle my GST and Tax obligations. Having set myself up as an independent contractor working in the mental health sector, I knew I would have to stay on top of my finances, especially over the first few years of operation. A colleague recommended Sidekick and I made an appointment with Ben from Sidekick Selwyn Limited to check this out! Now I don’t have to stress anymore with the financial accounting side of my business. Bookkeeping/accounting is not one of my strong suits and now I can focus 100% on what I am good at while all my Tax and GST needs are expertly and professionally dealt with by Ben from Sidekick Selwyn Limited – THANK YOU BEN!PTSD Navigators NZ
Ric and Ben from Sidekick have been absolutely amazing to deal with. They’ve helped simplify a lot of things for my business, but also reminded me to be constantly thinking of the bigger picture, and long term goals. I’ve found them so easy to deal with, prompt and very proactive.Alaina
My Husband and I opened a business and did not know who we could trust to help us oversee our business financials, and we were very concerned about this as this is an important part of our business. Choosing the right CA company was our main concern and it was not easy as we just could not find the right one, until the point to where we came across and met with Modecai who introduced us to Sidekick and that’s where we met Ben.
We could not be happier to have them on board within our business. Ben and his team are always there to help us understand what is needed and they always go the extra mile while understanding us as a business too. I would most definitely recommend Sidekick and their team to anyone who needs a CA company to overview their financials. For us Sidekick is a decision we truly believe was the right one – we have been with them ever since and will not look back, they are keepers.Jennifer Sorban
Following years outside of New Zealand we needed a reliable team to help bring our Income Tax submissions up to date
Ben and the team helped with efficiency and professionalism and we successfully submitted all outstanding years with ease and limited fees thanks to their hard work.
They ensured we were kept up to date with where our submissions were at all times, and when payment was required; to ensure no further penalties were incurred.
We have now employed them on an annual basis to help maintain our accounts and we are confident with the service we will receive.
We look forward to continuing to work with Ben and his team and can highly recommend them.Claire McNamara
