Accounting Software Advisory Services

Our extensive experience with MYOB and other accounting / payroll software packages means we can give you expert advice including:

  • Forensic Accounting and Fraud Detection
  • Procedure Flowcharts and Documentation

Forensic Accounting and Fraud Detection

Perhaps your accounts person has left or gone on holiday and things are not adding up. Paying an accountant to investigate issues within your accounting system can be extremely costly and often accountants are not experts in the workings of the software. We know the software inside-out so can quickly alert you to the following:

  • Fraud or suspicious transactions
  • Damages or losses from a breach of contract or insolvency
  • Inefficient purchasing practices
  • Detailed transaction history or any complex forensic accounting case for a specific customer, supplier or stock item
  • Missing source documents
  • Petty cash not balancing – where has the money gone?
  • Credit cards used for non-business activities
  • GST returns not completed or finalised causing you penalties and interest charges

We know where to look and what to look for so can save you thousands of dollars and bring peace of mind. Confidentiality assured.

Procedure Flowcharts and Documentation

This service is writing up business procedures so that everyone knows what must happen on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. The procedures need to be clear and concise so that anyone can read and understand.


We can do the following for you:

  • Write accounting/payroll procedure manuals which can be used for new/existing staff
  • Write procedures to document a single process e.g. stock building, purchase orders
  • Check existing procedures and recommend changes to them
  • Check procedures to be sure that the software is being used correctly and work is not duplicated.
  • Recommend changes to existing software or an add-on product where necessary

We follow standard practice when it comes to accounting systems and procedures.

What experience do we have?

We have > 20 years hands on MYOB/Xero accounting experience. Our consultants are experts with all the MYOB packages. 


Easy when you get the right training

We currently use AccountRight Live with bank feeds. It's easy when you get the right training.

Lynley Averis has worked with us for the past 5 years. She is always available to help with both MYOB Accounting and MYOB Payroll. Lynley knows MYOB AccountRight Live inside out. She's highly experienced and was able to fix problems and help me with payroll & accounting issues.

Our 'go to'

AccountAgility is our ‘go to’ when we have clients getting messed up with their MYOB files. Lynley will go in, health check the file, correct the errors and train the bookkeeper to follow best practice.

We look after the client’s tax requirements, but she will dig deep into the software to ensure the reports are reliable.

I see them as part of our team

NZX Listed Arvida Group are the largest single user of AccountRight software in NZ.

We selected AccountRight as our software of choice back in December 2014. Our accounting system allowed us to grow with new entities easily added to our centralised accounting hubs. Arivda is now moving all 2,500 employees to IMS payroll (from ACE, Zambion, Datacom, EXO and MYOB Payrolls). This will standardise payroll across the business and into one specialist team.

Lynley Averis from AccountAgility has been our MYOB business Partner since December 2014. She and her team have an in-depth knowledge of our accounting and payroll systems. I see them as part of our team. They assist with projects whenever we need help and are friendly and well connected with the MYOB community.

Amazing!

Lynley, you are amazing!!

Thanks again – I really appreciate your help.

Customers are happy

Lynley has been referring our Sidekick Reporting software to her customers as the preferred add-on reporting package to AccountRight Live. Since 2011, more of her customers have bought a Sidekick licence than from any other partner. It has kept us busy writing new reports and features to the ever growing list. Her customers are happy as they can now extract and analyse the information they need for decision making.


Peter Oliver Computing Solutions Ltd

A godsend

Thanks so much – you were a godsend. I would like to do some training with you – do you hold classes?

Much quicker processing with greater accuracy

The Auckland Diocese manage 65 parishes from Thames to Katia. We are NZ’s largest Diocese.

In 2016, after extensive research, we selected MYOB AccountRight with Lynley Averis as our MYOB business partner. As at June 2019, 30 parishes use MYOB AccountRight to handle their accounting. The objective is to have all parishes using AccountRight and a computerised payroll.

The new system is much quicker processing things with greater accuracy. Lynley has been at the forefront to achieve these efficiencies.

Really appreciated the support

We choose Lynley because she has many years experience on payroll setup & training. Over the years Lynley has always been available to assist online with questions on both the payroll software and on payroll legislation. We really have appreciated the support.

Streamlined our systems

Gow Langford Gallery is NZ’s largest privately owned art gallery. The Gallery represents over thirty established New Zealand and international artists. The accounting systems need to be able to accommodate complex transactions.

AccountAgility have worked closely with us, supporting both AccountRight and Payroll since 2012. We have streamlined our systems to eliminate additional spreadsheets and paper documents and now make maximum use of AccountRight.
