Our association with Kennedy Allbon Tane Ltd dates back 33 years when Maurice Petherick, our former bank manager, decided to change to accountancy forming a partnership with Paul Sorenson and later with Scott Kennedy. We immediately changed the Bell Bros. partnership books to Maurice who made a point of getting to know our farming & contracting business personally. We believe this made a large contribution to us running an efficient and profitable business. With Maurice’s recent retirement, Scott Kennedy hs taken over our books, making himself totally familiar with our systems and requirements, ably assisted by Judith East, a very talented and efficient person while all staff have been very helpful.

We have no hesitation in recommending Kennedy Allbon Tane Ltd as dedicated, efficient accountants to improve your business.

We have been a client for all this millennium, through three name changes, two shifts and have always found them very approachable.

They are even more accessible now since they have their own parking, no stairs and automatic opening doors.

They even balanced our books.

“We have been clients of Kennedy Allbon Tane since 2006. Scott Kennedy And his team have advised us on all significant business and taxation issues, and have efficiently managed all our taxation paperwork.  Scott has always been available for advice over the phone or in person.  This has allowed us to focus on our core business and reduced stress to zero at tax time.”

Poyner Houselifting Limited has been involved with Petherick Kennedy from 1999 when we formed a Ltd company.Noeline Tane has worked on our accounts for many years and when Mr Petherick retired, Noeline became a director of the new firm Kennedy Allbon Tane. This was a very smooth change of leadership in fact we noticed no difference as Noeline had been responsible for our accounts for many years.

One thing I really appreciate is that Noeline is always available to talk to over the phone if I have any queries – or by email. Customers come first, and nothing is to much trouble.

I have no hesitation in recommending Kennedy Allbon Tane Ltd- if you want good service at a fair price give them a try.

Testimonial from Tokatoka Foundation, Kaurilands Skills Centre and Kaipara Refuse Ltd

Our organisation’s accounts were in a very unorganised state, but, with the help of the partners at Kennedy Allbon Tane we now know where our business is going.

Funders can feel confident that we are moving in the right direction, as we have the Auditors stamp on our Annual Accounts as per our Trust Deed.

We would recommend this firm to anyone needing helpful guidance as they work through each audit.

This is to certify that I have had a professional relationship with Scott Kennedy from Kennedy Allbon Tane Chartered Accountants for the last three years.  I originally approached Scott Kennedy when reviewing my existing accountancy service.

I have always found all of the staff at Kennedy Allbon Tane to be friendly and professional.  After in depth discussions, my husband and I decided to appoint Scott Kennedy from Kennedy Allbon Tane as our accountant.  We have been very pleased with our decision.  The relationship and service that we have received from Scott Kennedy and his team has been fantastic.  Scott is very approachable and we have developed a strong business relationship.  I would recommend Kennedy Allbon Tane to anyone seeking professional efficient accountancy services.

It gives me great pleasure on behalf of the Whangarei Agricultural and Pastoral Society to provide this testimonial for you and your company.

As the duly appointed auditors for the Society for the past ten years, we have been fortunate to have experienced the methodical and practical approach undertaken by you and your team during the audit process.  The audit has always been undertaken with the minimum of disruption to our business.  Furthermore, you and your team are approachable and personable when dealing with all matters and communications related to the audit.

On a personal note, as the CEO, it gives me a certain level of comfort knowing that the operational and management issues that are raised during the course of the audit are given due and correct consideration and that the appropriate audit principles and current policies are applied.  It is reassuring to have this level of support so that anything that needs to be raised with the Society’s Board can be done in a knowledgeable and well thought through matter.
