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.

Allison Haynes, Managing Director

I engaged the services of Scott when I moved from being a sole trader working on my own, to opening a multidisciplinary allied health clinic. I employ a mix of casual, part time and contractors. To say my books were a mess before Scott came on board is an understatement. Within weeks, my books were up to date, I had an operating budget, and processes were set up to handle all the money side of things. This let me concentrate on growing the business in a sustainable way.
Scott is detail oriented, and this has provided me with a security of mind that I have never experienced with money. My accountant described his bookkeeping as “immaculate” and I would have to agree 100% with this. His communication is very fast, and will get back to me to answer any questions I have, always within the day, and often within minutes. His knowledge of award rates, the difference between employees and contractors, and all the BAS and tax processes is spot on.
I could not recommend Scott highly enough, and happily recommend him to all my colleagues in need of a bookkeeper.
