What our clients say about us
Anthony Richman, Finance Director

With the teams expert and helpful assistance, we successfully and easily converted to Xero, and together with Spotlight Reporting we now receive timely and quality consolidated reporting.
The team is professional and diligent."
Jennifer Carver, CIO
"Fresh Accounting is engaging and professional.
We were keen to gain visibility into our business and have access to real time accounting information in order to better manage our businesses.
Fresh implemented Xero and trained our staff and provide us with ongoing support.
Paul's approach and attitude is professional and has demonstrated a deep understanding of our business, requirements and needs."
John Cavalli, Managing Director
"I was fortunate enough to be introduced to Paul and Fresh Accounting mid 2014.
After experiencing on-going frustrations and time delays with local Hong Kong accounting firms during the previous 4 years, Paul has been a breath of fresh air.
He quickly got to grips with our business and provided us with a completed set of accounts in no time at all. He has also set us up with the Xero accounting system, trained our staff in its use and this has reaped enormous benefits in a short space of time, Claremont.
Not only is Paul a consummate professional but he is also a great guy to do business with and I have no hesitation in recommending him."
Jerome Tam, Director & Co-founder
Rush Hour Media
"Hiring Paul was one of the best decisions I have made as the director of Rush Hour Media.
He has done an amazing job helping us to move our management account onto Xero, and has given us a much clearer view of our cash flow and accounts.
We have already referred Paul to a few friends and clients, and we would be happy to do so again."
Stephen Barnes, Co-Founder
Hong Kong Visa Centre
"Fresh Accounting have been part of our strategic roadmap for the last three years and have done a great job. Paul and his team are highly recommended!"
Victoria Wisniewski Otero, CEO & Founder
"In an NGO setting, having effective and transparent financial systems and regular reporting is so crucial to in-still donor trust and confidence. We were so grateful to have Fresh Accounting's pro bono assistance and capacity-building to our organization at the earliest stage possible in our growth. This has allowed us to put into place healthy and professional accounting systems from the beginning, which is so important for us to further our mission, reach and impact.
Fresh is more than that though. I really value the people behind the team. They have been ambassadors and champions of our community empowerment work and have been lovely to work with. There is an approachability and friendliness that I really appreciate. I always say they do the impossible - they make numbers fun!"
Clive Mullan, Investor
As a new start-up in Hong Kong we were very fortunate to find Fresh Accounting under the leadership of Paul Gardner.
Fresh Accounting have guided us over the past 18 months, ensuring we are aware of our exact financial position at all times.
With financial statements readily available, we have been able to control expenses and make decisions on what areas to target to increase income.
The entire team at Fresh Accounting is extremely approachable and I foresee our partnership continuing long into the future.
First Names Group
“We've very much enjoyed working with Paul, Ash, Nick and the team at Fresh Accounting.
Their approach to business is pro-active, innovative and personable, and our business and clients have benefitted from the tailor-made solutions they've delivered for us."
"We have been working with Fresh Accounting for over 2 years now and have had an excellent experience working with the Fresh team.
We are based in Myanmar and consolidate up to our parent company which is looked after by Fresh Accounting.
Fresh have always been flexible to our requirements, quick to respond and very easy and accommodating to work with.
I would recommend Fresh to any other companies who need a reliable remote accountancy firm to work with."
Michael Young Limited
"Since arriving in Hong Kong I had used traditional paper accounting services. I did not know there was much that could be improved frankly.
Working with Fresh has demystified accounting so I can be 100% in tune with my clients and staff needs on a daily basis.
With that sinology has come such a massive reduction in the day to day stress of running an SME so I can decide how to invest and observe potential growth."
Björn Wahlström, Director of Operations
Current Consulting Group
“We moved our company’s books from Excel to the Xero cloud in 2017 with the help of Paul and his team here in Hong Kong, and this has added great value to our company.
The work of Fresh has allowed us to view accounting as a means of building and executing strategies, rather than the painful administrative chore it used to be.
They’ve helped us get firm control over our financial position and strategy, allowing us to build value short and long term.
The Fresh team are always available for support, and are always ready to try out new ideas and ventures. We warmly recommend the Fresh team.”
Paul Stepanek, President
COMPLETE Manufacturing & Distribution
“Fresh Accounting has helped us get the information we need in a timely manner – so we can do the important analysis of our financials – to accelerate our business.
We recommend Fresh Accounting.”
"We appointed Fresh to help us understand our business better.
We were growing quite quickly and realised we needed support in developing our finance team and their workflow. By not being accountants ourselves we had no experience in managing accountants or measuring productivity and results. Fresh took on this role and act as our CFO and FD to ensure our in-house team are on track and working to a good standard. They also interviewed and helped us recruit someone in house. Aside from the CFO function, Fresh offer hands-on support when required to keep our books pristine. They don’t just manage, they lead by example and get stuck in.
The team have been diligent and professional from the start. Having an outside view allows me to get balanced updates on the finance function of the business with complete visibility along the way.
The team are all very likeable and trustworthy. They’ve taken a big weight off my workload and mind so I can focus on the bits I understand better."
Maura Thompson, Founder
Sassy Media Group
"I have been so happy to have the Fresh Team on our side as it relates to getting our finances in order. They have been lifesavers in getting us transitioned to Xero and this change has allowed us the flexibility to analyze our financial position and invoicing without being tied to a certain computer which was our challenge in the past. As a small business it is so important to be able to focus on what we do best and have support in other areas, such as our financials, and I couldn't ask for a better team when it comes to Fresh.
I would absolutely recommend them to anyone that is looking to have someone who is looking for someone to help on the finance side who can help feel like a part of the team even if they are not employed directly with the company. I feel so secure in their hands, which allows me to focus on other parts of my business knowing that our finances are in great hands with professionals who know best."
“The Fresh team have been fantastic to work with – reliable, responsible and responsive. Initially I was a little apprehensive outsourcing a substantial portion of our accounting function, but it’s been a couple of years now and we’re really pleased with the collaboration.”
Team Building Asia
“Team Building Asia has been working with Fresh Accounting for 3 years, first on the implementation of Xero for our accounts in Hong Kong and Singapore and more recently Fresh Accounting has taken over the overall management of the Team Building Asia accounts including the integration of our China business.
Working with Fresh has given us clear visibility of our accounts and a clearer direction managing three entities. The team are always super responsive and have very clear information.”
Justin Hallam, Group Financial Controller
“After engaging Fresh Accounting to assist with the implementation of 16 Xero entities across 11 countries, the team showed incredible dedication to ensure the whole project was a success.
Paul and The fresh team are very knowledgeable and approachable, they were always available during the implementation and the project was systems were up and running within a couple of weeks.
Even after the project has been completed the Fresh accounting team are always available to lend a hand or provide advice.”
Lester Lim, CFO
"The expectation of comprehensive abstraction of the day-to-day finance and bookkeeping functions is pleasantly exceeded by a generous margin when it comes to Fresh. Not just this, but the diligent implementation of Xero and Spotlight Reporting makes the analysis and review management reports far less of a chore than it used to be. In a world of spotty service delivery among BPO operators, Fresh quite literally lives up to its name."
