BankLink - Return Home

“I would never go back to the old way of doing my accounts.”

07 April 2011

Bruce Rapley has a strawberry nursery, and grows avocados and kiwifruit. His brother runs a dairy farm down the road. Bruce looks after the money side of both operations.

“That means I’ve got transactions with Fonterra, RD1, Farmlands and PGG Wrightson as well as the banks.”

A couple of years ago Bruce would spend hours collating statements and receipts, and working out which business to apportion costs to.

“With BankLink all that is handled automatically,” he says.

“You can’t make mistakes because the statement information is sent electronically. I’ve been able to slash the amount of time I spend doing the accounts.”

“I wish I’d come to BankLink sooner,” Bruce says.

“My accountant had been bugging me about it for years. Now it seems like every second person I talk to is using it. I’d never go back to the old way.”

Talk to your accountant about how BankLink can save you time.
