People are often creatively minded or logically wired.

Fortunately we have a great balance of the two and our clients certainly find that's an ideal balance for supporting their business. Here's what some of our greatest advocators have to say:

ARK Media Productions Ltd

Over the past few years Jayne at That's Ideal has helped Ark Media with our bookkeeping. She has given us A class service and is always available to help with queries and also provides a solid link between us at Ark and our accountants. She is always on top of our books which has been invaluable in helping the company understand its financial position. Many thanks to Jayne and her team and I hope we can continue to work together in the future.

Jayne is efficient, accessible and an absolute professional. I would highly recommend her to take the stress out of your bookkeeping.

CPN Systems Ltd

After recently consulting with Jayne Smith from That's Ideal we have found her to be extremely professional and knowledgeable in the area of bookkeeping and Xero. She assisted us with the transition of our accounting package from Sage to Xero. With Jaynes help the transition was completed quickly and efficiently with minimal disruption to our day to day working. Jayne has been on hand to help us with any initial issues during our first few weeks getting used to using Xero, she has great knowledge of Xero and has gone above and beyond to resolve any issues which arose.

Switching to Xero has opened our eyes to a more efficient way of bookkeeping and transformed our bookkeeping processes for the better. Our accounts department are very pleased with the switch and astounded at the ease of use and flexibility Xero offers. Xero allows us to obtain real time financial information which makes us a much more efficient and reactive company. Since switching to Xero we have not looked back, thanks to the support of Jayne and That's ideal the process has been quick, easy and enjoyable.

I was introduced to Jayne through a mutual contact. I had already heard about Xero and how great it was for small businesses like myself. I signed up right away and was thrilled with myself...but then did nothing for 6 months!! I was paying for this wonderful tool but couldn't quite motivate myself to start using it. Jayne gently coaxed me through the whole process and before long I was up and running and wondering why I had not started sooner! It has totally changed how I operate my finances. No more creating, printing and emailing invoices to my clients. Everything is set up in Xero for my clients to pay online and it is so easy to use! I also started using Receipt bank around this time which is SO handy. I love it. I have recently gone Ltd which meant changing a few variables and again Jayne guided me through this whole process with a lot of patience (finances are not my area of expertise!!). I have also started using TripCatcher to log my mileage which is a very useful tool...especially if you hate Excel like me! I can highly recommend Jayne and the services she provides, she explains everything really well and will always take the time to make sure you understand what needs to be done. Using Xero, Receipt bank and TripCatcher has really helped cut down on the time it takes to arrange my accounts and I am very happy with them! (and the lovely Jayne also)

Jayne has quite simply changed the way I operate my business and has helped me take the leap to grow. Without her guidance, ideas & support, I wouldn't have had the confidence that I could scale my business in the way I have. Thank you!

Within International

I have been working with Jayne for quite a while at different levels of our company. She is exceptionally efficient and organised on any account-related issues. For the new joiners at Within Design, Jayne has taken time out of her schedule to ensure that an adequate on boarding training session was completed, equipping the staff with the necessary insight and understanding on how to process and deal with various accounts. Jayne has an exhaustive approach to her work, ensuring that even issues that are not her responsibility are promptly solved or prevented.
