Scott’s Testimonials

Ariel H

Scott Leonard has been the Honorary Treasurer and bookkeeper of QJCS Inc since 2006. His knowledge and expertise in governance requirements have resulted in very accurate and comprehensive accounts which have been complimented by our auditor as easy to audit.

Scott is also experienced in providing advice in grant management, expenditure and acquittal. This was hugely helpful during the 2011 floods where he administered our $2 million funds raised to assist victims.

Scott has also provided me and the committee with advice, guidance and support over the past 12 years which I thank him for.

Rabbi Mosheh (President)

Scott Leonard has been our honorary bookkeeper since 2009.

His first work for us was to build years of accounts from paper statements and receipts and transcribe them into MYOB.

His keen understanding of GST rules resulted in a significant return for our charity, which made a real difference to our community.

The accounts were methodically built, BASs submitted and audits completed over the course of several months.

Scott has since committed many volunteer hours to keep our accounts in good shape and ensures audit reports for the association are thorough.

He continues to provide valuable advice on governance requirements, GST, and administrative processes to improve our effectiveness and efficiency.

What our clients say about us…

“I had the pleasure of being introduced to ABBS through Jo Bacon the WA representative. The professional service.  I have received has been so essential in assisting me with my new business, I am so grateful for the expertise, professionalism and excellent customer service I have experienced.” Marion B

“Thanks to Steve Cocks from ABBS we managed to get all the books up to date and in no time, … and that took the weight off my shoulders so I could focus on developing my business and moving forward in a more organized and structured way, keeping on top of things every month which makes life much easier.”  Elisabeth G

“As an ex-bookkeeper, I’m pretty fussy about how I like things done and I’ve found Caran from ABBS to be a pleasure to work with. She’s competent and efficient and now that I have her helping me with the bookkeeping for my business, I wouldn’t be without her.”  Sandy T
