What Our Clients Say . . .

“For close to two years we struggled with our accounts. We were recommended Aktive and within three months Ian and his helpful team brought our accounts up to a level suitable for review. Due to a simplified and practical approach I totally endorse the team at Aktive to all sports organisations for their accounting guidance and wish we were recommended them a lot earlier.”

Lloyd Jones, Chairman, Waitākere City Football Club

"I would like to pass on my thanks to you for work the shared services team have been doing in transitioning Tennis NZ to Xero and Shared Services. It has not been easy with them only just getting started before we went in to lock-down, but there was barely a pause before they carried on with the job.
“I have been most impressed with the very respectful manner in which your team has supported our team and the knowledgeable manner that they have gone about their business through this rather longer than normal process."

Julie Paterson, CEO, Tennis NZ

“It was felt that the accounting software in use at NZRL was inefficient and outdated, and that a move onto cloud-based software would be more practical and would enable GMs and Zone Boards to be more involved in accounting and payroll processes.
Aktive managed the migration onto Xero and ipayroll for us. They were additionally able to step in to provide some longer-term accounting support following a role change at NZRL and have been very flexible around this."
