Jane Tyson Accountant

T: 07 308 5015

Jane Tyson is originally from the South Island and grew up as an army brat near the military camp of Burnham, Christchurch.

When her dad got a job at the Dental School in Dunedin, Jane went to school at Otago Girls’ High School and then attended Teacher’s College. She met John and began working for Social Welfare.

She moved from the South Island to Hamilton in the 1980s. Next was a move to Whakatane where she embarked on her best project, her two children Jeff and Emma, before running her own business, a garden sculpture company.

When a Prideaux & Co receptionist left and no replacement was organised, Jane found herself filling in. She was “so awesome” that she grew into doing accounting, which she has stayed with ever since.

In her spare time, Jane is a great squash player.

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.
