The MYOB consultants listed below are the best in Auckland. How can I say this? Over the past 15 years I have trained and worked with dozens of MYOB consultants and bookkeepers. Some are okay but many have shortcomings, both from a technical and personality point of view. The people listed below are hand picked by me as we all know that people make the business.

ACA, MYOB Certified Consultant
Anil has been using MYOB for 10 years and has been an MYOB Certified Consultant for the past 3 years. He has worked in a medium sized CA firm from 2001 till December 2010 where he was also in charge of MYOB training, setup and installation supporting the clients with their MYOB issues. Anil co-presented the September GST seminars on behalf of MYOB NZ to more than 600 MYOB customers in Auckland. Anil uses his accounting knowledge and background to extract the best out of the MYOB package. He has a hands-on approach to MYOB. On a personal note, Anil is rugby mad and has a great sense of humour – he always looks on the bright side of life.
Anil has moved a quarter of his client-base onto MYOB LiveAccounts, MYOB’s online solution, which offers 24-hour internet access to your accounts, wherever you are, and real-time collaboration with accountants and advisors. Anil says one of the key reasons for his recommendation is the automatic bank reconciliation provided by the online solution, which saves both him and his clients considerable time. “LiveAccounts is very, very accurate and time-effective.”
A recent comment from customer, Heather was:
“Anil is really good, he knows his stuff, vastly superior knowledge to me, fast and efficient, finds problems quickly, good solutions offered..”
