My husband and I have been with Parlato & Associates for over 4 years now and we are very pleased that we made that decision to change to them.
The initial meeting was very easy and reassuring and not at all daunting like some appointments that you go to. Darren was very easy to talk to and very knowledgeable and he spoke to us in "every day" language that we could easily understand, no over the top terminology.
It was a nice surprise to learn that Darren has other rental property clients too and can easily relate to all of the challenges that we face and quite happily gives us advice if we ever ask, which is really fantastic. Darren has made the whole accounting journey for us so easy and less daunting and we will be staying with him for a very long time.
I first met Darren just over three years ago through our joint interest in outdoor bowls, both of us belonging to our local bowling club.
Our friendship both personal and business grew from there.
Darrens determination to succeed and remain positive was duly tested when playing against him in our Club singles final. Although close at the half way point his temperament and methodical approach no matter what he does in life made him the worthy winner.
Prior to becoming a client of Parlato & Associates we were involved with a national accountancy firm. Being a small business experiencing a current downturn in the economy we could not justify their charge out rate and certainly did not require all the whistles and bells they had at their disposal.
Switching to Parlato & Associates was the best thing we could of done, good old country service where nothing is a problem and an extremely realistic charge out rate.
Give is some thought, perhaps even arrange a meeting, you wont regret it.

I have been dealing with Darren and Stella, since Darren purchased his practice in Foxton and would find it difficult to run my business without them.
Darren has become more than my accountant, he has become one of my most trusted business partners.
Parlato & Associates Limited offer sound financial advise and planning and Darren is always a great sounding board for new ideas.
What I enjoy most of all is, Darren is always there when I need him for advice.

For many years we have dealt with an out of town, large accountancy firm. With much consideration, we decided to deal locally and joined Darren 4 years ago in his new accountancy business. Darren handled the change over and there was no inconvenience to us at all. We have had no regrets and are very happy with the change.
We have found Darren to be:
Very approachable and easy to talk to
He has a genuine interest in his clients and their business
It is nice to know he is only a phone call or a visit away if we have any concerns.
He is very knowledgeable and gives the right advice and is very encouraging, especially in these hard times.
Very efficient, everything is up to date and on time
It is such a pleasure dealing with Darren!
