Emily Rampling Management Accountant

Hailing from Rotorua, she might have a Bachelor's degree in English, but she traded sonnets for spreadsheets faster than you can say "double-entry bookkeeping." An "OE" to England after university led to a decade long stay, where an opportunity working in a securities firm led to retraining as an accountant with ACCA.

Since 2007, she's been a Management Accountant in various roles, swapping London's red buses for New Zealand's rolling hills. It turns out her lifelong interest in "Country Calendar" wasn't just idle daydreaming, jumping at the chance to use her skills at Rural Accountants.

In addition to being a numbers guru, she's a wife and mom to two little adventurers and made the brave leap to the Eastern Bay in 2014, proving that even accountants have their wild side.

What Our Customers Think

Great local Accountants. They provide an excellent service with great explanations for the layman. They provide accounting services for non rural clients too.

What Our Customers Think

Rural Accountants is a real asset to our business.

The team at Rural Accountants pretty much manage all our administrative tasks for the group including payroll and tax planning, ensuring we don’t pay any more than necessary. They are at the forefront of technology and have helped us get up and running with Xero and Figured which is much more efficient than the way we used to work.

What Our Customers Think

I used to work out my GST and process it manually which would take me at least a full day every two months. The team set up reconcilliation rules and other quick tools, and showed me how to do all my reconcilliations and process my GST returns through Xero which now takes me no time at all!

Mike O'Neill, Financial Services Northland Ltd
What Our Customers Think

As a farmer, Christine understands our business and how farmers and growers operate.

We use Rural Accountants to provide a full accounting service to an orcharding partnership which operates a number of orchards with a wide spread of varieties and management systems. Rural Accountants are always timely and accurate, and their annual financial accounts are extremely easy to understand and very grower-friendly.
