Jeff Banbury Associate
Jeff hails from Whakatane and comes from a family of accountants.
He enjoys working with our horticultural and agricultural clients, as well as meeting with new clients to help with business planning and advice.
Jeff and his wife, Michelle, moved from Hamilton to the Whakatane area in 2018. They now live in Opotiki with their son, their two cats, and two dogs. He fits in his hobbies - DIY home renovations, rugby, golf, and fishing - when he can.
This year Jeff has joined the leadership team, becoming an associate. He is looking forward to the excitement and opportunities the greater leadership role will bring.
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.
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.
Christine is very knowledgeable, great to deal with and knows our business well. She is also a sheep & beef farmer so knows the industry really well and understands our needs.
Rural Accountants keeps us on track through strategic and forward planning meetings throughout the year. Christine knows our business inside out so she can deal with our questions instantly.
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. Angelina then set up reconcilliations 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!
