Incredibly accessible and thorough
Debbie Ball of Ball Business Services was referred to me by a trusted advisor and mentor for my fledgling Finance Broking Business in 2009.
In that time Debbie has helped me put a number of systems in place that have streamlined my accounting practices in my business including conversion to XERO.
She has also been incredibly accessible and thorough in providing accounting advice from parental leave through to investing in other businesses.
Her quarterly reports and unsolicited advice is a great extension of her overall professionalism and commitment.
I highly recommend Debbie.
Outstanding and exemplary for 20 years
Debbie Ball founder of Ball Business Services has worked with Celstream Technologies for over 20 years.
During this time not only has her accounting and reporting been outstanding and exemplary but she has been a true value added partner in numerous ways. Examples of this include giving strategic, planning and practical advice on company structure changes as well as personal advice.
She has efficiently handled all communications with the various Government authorities. Debbie Ball is indeed quite special to Celstream Technologies and I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending her to any prospective client.
Extremely cost effective
Our company has been operating since 2003 and we have been using Debbie Ball from Ball Business Services since the very beginning to do our bookkeeping and quarterly BAS lodgements. She is CPA qualified so better than the average bookkeeper but we found her services to be extremely cost effective and ultimately made our annual company tax preparation by our accountant equally cost effective, as the records she presented to the accountant were all reconciled and substantiated by detailed work papers.
Two years ago she converted our MYOB file to Xero online accounting. This was the best suggestion she could ever have made and the transition has been seamless for all our staff. Xero makes all our lives so much easier. We would have no hesitation in recommending Debbie Ball for any business needing professional online bookkeeping services.
Excellent source of business advice
Debbie Ball of Ball Business Services Pty Limited has been known to me for in excess of 20 years in a business environment. Our initial encounter was to discuss my annual, individual tax returns which she lodged on my behalf.
Later as a trained bookkeeper, I commenced my own business and Debbie not only offered her knowledge and support to guide me through the trials of managing my business structure, she assisted with advice on the various software applications. I consider her a master MYOB Certified Consultant and Xero Partner as well as an excellent source of business advice.
Following this, she has guided me through the best tax advantages in my investments. I do not hesitate to recommend her not only for the years of knowledge she has accumulated, but her absolute professionalism in every matter I, or indeed people who I have referred, have brought before her.
I have no hesitation in referring clients to Ball Business Services Pty Limited. My referrals are more grateful for the refreshing change from their previous accountants and even tell me that Debbie complements their own teams extremely well.
Debbie Ball from Ball Business Services has been doing our personal tax returns, lodging our quarterly BAS’s, annual company tax returns, FBT returns and statutory financial accounts preparation for many years. She handles all our correspondence with ATO and ASIC, so we leave everything to her to sort out.
We are absolutely delighted with her efficient and professional approach and her appreciation that sometimes we need to ask her opinion about certain unforeseen matters that crop up from time to time. She always has time to take our calls if we have any queries that need an urgent response and her timely advice is always exactly what we need. Even if she is tied up with other clients, she always gets back to us the same day.
I can thoroughly recommend her as an excellent accountant who takes the time to explain everything to us in language that we can understand.
I value Debbie's advice and experience
I have been a client of Debbie Ball for over 15 years. This was firstly in my role as Director and General Manager of the Australian subsidiary of a large multi-national engineering consulting firm. More recently, along with four colleagues, I have started an independent consulting business and we did not hesitate to ask Debbie to provide accounting services and financial advice to our new venture.
Over this period, as our accountant, Debbie has never failed to provide prompt, personal and professional service. I have valued her advice and experience with many issues, including guidance through a number of transitions of legal entities and extending to advice on statutory employment conditions for staff.
With our most recent venture Debbie has provided guidance from the outset and has assisted with our recent conversion to the use of Xero as our accounting package. This has made our task of administering the business much easier and we greatly value the monthly management reports that Debbie produces from Xero for us as the basis of our monthly board meetings.
Excellent accountant making running a business easier
I started my pole dancing studio just over 3 years ago and enlisted the help of Debbie Ball from Ball Business Services Pty Ltd to set up the company structure and accounting software. I asked her to make it easy for me so that the compliance side of running a business would take as little of my time as possible.
Since then she and her bookkeepers have managed all our transactions on Xero, including the fortnightly payroll of my staff. They also lodge everything for us on time – personal tax returns, quarterly BAS’s company tax returns, and statutory financial accounts preparation. They handle all our correspondence with ATO and ASIC, and I can be confident that everything will be sorted for me.
As this is my first business, I am always a little uncertain about how the company is going profit wise, but Debbie always sends me regular reports and answers all my questions in language that I can understand. She also always makes the time to answer my questions, even if they are after hours.
I can thoroughly recommend Debbie Ball as an excellent accountant who has made me realise that running a business isn’t as hard as I had originally thought.
Totally professional and always available
We have been using Ball Business Services now for all of our company accounting for more than 10 years.
We have also used Ball Business Services for another company of ours, Newton International Marketing for the same period.
We have found Debbie Ball to be totally professional in all of our dealings with her and she is always available for advice and information.
We would not hesitate in recommending Ball Business Services to any company wishing to avail themselves of the accounting services and business advice.
