UCA Sydney Presbytery

"During the past 5 months Benkorp assisted in the installation of the Xero Accounting Software.  I have found Benkorp to be both courteous and professional, possessing a wide knowledge of the product. My initial contact with Benkorp was generated through the Sydney Anglican Diocese and I would have no hesitation in recommending Benkorp to any client needing the services of a very professional accounting services organisation." Alan Newing

All Saints Anglican Figtree

"Since having Benkorp process our accounts, we know that everything is done the way the diocese wants it done and at the end of the year, the audit has been very smooth. We were not skeptical before using Benkorp as they had been very useful to our parish with sorting out our accounts and BAS details before we contracted their services permanently. What settled the decision for us was that Benkorp is closely aligned with the Sydney Diocese Accounting process and provides a continuing service when the parish wardens are elected on an annual basis."
