In the words of some of our happy clients:
Mary has worked for me over the period July 2006 -March 2020
From 2006 - 2014 Mary was working in my office in the capacity of Customer service, managing incoming and outgoing calls, data entry, taking information to load and book jobs, customer care, formatting and sending reports, managing payments (Debtor management) and for a few years was Sole Company Administrator for several of my companies. This entailed working with MYOB and keeping records, accounts payable/receivable and all duties which are required as Sole Company Administrator.
She then moved to Wanganui in 2014 and I asked her to carry on working remotely, which she did for 18 months.
In 2017 I asked Mary to run the Administration side of my businesses which she did remotely, this involved all the duties above but now working with Xero. This was at short notice due to unforseen circumstances with in my businesses, as I was going overseas for three month so needed someone URGENTLY with the knowledge of my business to help to keep it running while I was away. Mary Stepped up and has continued in this role for the last three years.
The time has now come to return these services back within the business.
Mary is exceptionally loyal and is always looking to improve processes.
I owe a huge thanks to Mary and wish her all the best for the future.

"I have used Mary Hill / Virtual Biz Assistant since 2015 and I have found her very pleasant to deal with and fully invested in my business, also keeping my accounts to the high standard I expect.

I can't say enough good things about Mary and her team of Virtual Biz Assistants. I met Mary just in 2016. I had recently purchased Xero accounting software and believed I could save money by managing this software myself. It was quite the opposite! Handing Xero over to Mary was the best business decision I had made in a while. I now have time to focus on the jobs I’m good at.
Virtual Business Assistants care about me and my business and treat it as their own. Mary and her team are prompt, professional, and a true pleasure to work with.

We are a small business team and at times the office can get too much for one person to control. Mary and her team at “Virtual Biz Assistant” have been our life savers helping us out from time to time. We have found them very helpful and professional and would highly recommend them to others.

Mary has been assisting us with our business accounts since March 2018. Her tasks involved sending out invoices and accounts, and is now helping us with our tax returns and bookkeeping with Xero. She looks at each task as a challenge and completes them all successfully in a precise and timely manner. We feel that she has been a valued asset to our business and she has a high standard of reliable qualities. I feel that she does a fantastic job with all our business aspects and she is extremely dependable. I highly recommend her services to anyone needing assistance as she has been extremely reliable."

"I have used Virtual Biz Assistant in my business for a couple years now and have found it an efficient and personal service to follow up my clients, arrange appointments and get the information required to free me up to concentrate on my core business.
With the experience Mary Hill has had in my industry it is very easy as she knows what is needed to be able to complete my applications, and I find when I get busy I can divert my calls and concentrate on my work which saves the constant interruptions.
The costs are reasonable and it saves me having to employ a PA /administrator for my business- I am able to use their services on a permanent or casual basis - whatever is needed at the time."

"For the past 9 years I have worked alongside Mary in our role as customer support.
It was evident early on that Mary had great customer service skills and her ability to listen and understand clients' needs while meeting their requirements is second to none. Anyone using Mary's varied skills would benefit greatly in her knowledge, loyalty and flexibility.
Mary also filled many other roles in the company, including managing debtors and creditors and general administration tasks."

Streamlining my Business
I met Mary at a time when I literally needed someone I could trust my business with. I needed to secure someone "that day". I momentarily panicked for the sake of my business, pulled myself together and got resourceful. I was most fortunate to have Googled, "taxation services, Wanganui", and Mary came up right away. (1) I was sold on her face (genuine, sincere, and kind); (2) what I read about her on her website; and (3) when I met her face to face - she fulfilled (1) and (2)!
Mary has helped me streamline my business using Xero, it has taken a huge load off my mind knowing I can trust my business with her. I am proud to call Mary a colleague and friend. I recommend her and her team of experts, with a range of services - without hesitation.
