“Professional and friendly advice and support”

Beverley and I have utilised Donna and her team at Chapman Upchurch for over eight years now. We have always been impressed by their professional and friendly advice and support. Any issues have always been addressed quickly with a minimum of fuss and the team are always available to attend to our needs. We couldn’t ask for better service and we would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a chartered accountant.

Grant Henderson, Pita Pit Lower Hutt



“They provide a superior service”

We would like to thank Donna and her team for the fabulous assistance over the last nine years. We first went to Donna when we started in real estate in 2004 and then in the purchase of our business last year. Donna and her team have been great support to us and we feel that they provide a superior service as we feel we can ask anything and they will go out of their way to help us with our questions. This was evident when we purchased our business last year.

We spent a great deal of time with Donna in the early stages of looking at purchasing. She took us through all the scenarios and her advice was invaluable to us. She even met with our franchisor to discuss various aspects of the business and he said he has never met an accountant (in the purchase of the businesses that have come to market) who has been so diligent and asking all the right questions.

Donna is extremely thorough and we know we can ring her at any time to ask her advice. We would highly recommend them to anyone that is in business for themselves or someone that is looking at buying a business as Donna leaves no stone unturned.

"You ask the right questions"

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all the hard work that you and your staff have put in to HarvestIt Limited over the last two and half years. As a new business we were reliant on you to not only help set up the new venture, but for what turned out to be invaluable advice. Myself and Stu have not underestimated the value that you have added to our company, and have recommended you to some of our friends and business associates. I think what puts you aside from so many other accountants is that, even when you are not familiar with a type of industry, you ask the right questions. We also appreciated the extra time that you spent with us outside normal business hours. With the recent sale of my interests in HarvestIt Ltd, I thought it an opportune time to thank you for your help in making the company a success..

"Donna and her highly competent team at Chapman Upchurch are truly one of our most valuable partners in operating our business"

We know that if we need advice or help, they can provide accurate and pertinent information.  Not only is that help provided quickly but it is also conveyed and provided in a personal and friendly manner.

Our success is undoubtedly aided by a multitude of factors, but in the area of accounting, tax and business, Donna and her team have been outstanding.  It's not often one encounters a truly outstanding business, and Chapman Upchurch is certainly a fine example.
