BDO & Xero Client Stories - Central North Island
16 August 2017
Foley Farming Enterprises Ltd
Foley Farming Enterprises Ltd is a family run business with husband and wife, Will and Abbey Foley, at the helm. They are fourth generation farmers who grew up with focus on contracting business but decided the land asset was under utilised and undertook a business plan in 2012 to get the farm producing at a high level.
Will's father began the relationship with BDO and this has gone from strength to strength. "I like the professionalism, the long standing relationship, the location of office and its facilities we often utilise for board meetings etc, the friendly and helpful staff" says Will.
"Xero helped to stremline the administration of the business during a period of substantial growth and increased transactional activity ten fold. "We are doing more admin but in less time. Xero has improved the accuracy of data input and the office end and made it easier for the accountants at year end processing with more information available at their fingertips during that time".
NZ Bridge Incorporated
NZ Bridge Incorporated is a National body representing Bridge Clubs throughout New Zealand that is focussed on fostering, promoting and governing the game of Bridge for all its members.
"Having a Xero expert as our local advisor has made a significant difference to our organisation. Our main role is to support member clubs throughout New Zealand and BDO’s assistance with streamlining national body financial reporting using Xero allows for more time to support the clubs and their members.
With the organisation operating multiple bank accounts (approximately 30!) it’s great that BDO can log into our Xero account anytime, anywhere so that queries can be talked through and solved quickly. This has provided NZ Bridge with the tools, knowledge and confidence to carry out the process next time".
