Purtzki & Associates Chartered Accountants, Nanaimo

"I have had the pleasure of working with Frances over the past five years in the capacity of accountant for her own businesses as well as for her clients. I have found her to be easy to work with, and her work to be high quality. As an accountant, what I look for in a bookkeeper is:

  1. Files are complete and accurate, requiring minimal adjustments for mundane issues.
  2. The bookkeeper is available and promptly responsive to queries.
  3. A collaborative attitude, putting clients' interest first.
  4. An awareness of, if not proficiency in, technological advances in the field (i.e. proficiency with multiple bookkeeping programs in multiple enviroments).

Frances has all of these qualities and, as a result, I don't hesitate to refer my clients to her."

"For 4 years I had been struggling with our bookkeeping while trying to grow our small business.  Our financials took up most of my time and yet was the last place I wanted to focus my energy.  I knew I needed to let go of the burden of our books but was so hesitant.  Could we afford it?  Did I want to open our financials up to someone?  Thankfully, our trusted accountant saw the need in me too and recommended Frances as someone he knew would be a fit with us.  From the very first phone call I made to Frances I felt comfortable with her professionalism and her ability to put me at ease.  She understood my apprehension and took the time to understand our business.  Working with her has been a breath of fresh air.  She is reliable, knowledgeable and understanding of the challenges we face, as well as being just an all-around great person to work with.  Over this past year working with her we doubled the size of our company, partly due to the time I am now able to devote to growth, as opposed to swimming through the numbers.  She is the support our business needs and as often said, my only regret is not calling her sooner."

As a senior manager in a public accounting firm, I work very closely with the bookkeepers of our clients.  Our firm has several clients who use Frances Murray Bookkeeping Services. Frances is friendly and engaging, and, in my view working with her is a pleasure. Her work always comes to us well organized and in a timely fashion. One thing I especially like is her desire to work with the client’s accountant in a collaborative effort to ensure the best possible client service.  I would recommend Frances Murray Bookkeeping Services to take care of your bookkeeping needs.  She will look after you, so that as a business owner, you can spend your time working on your business, not your financial affairs.
