What Customers Are Saying...

I am a wellsite geologist and have been using Cheque Mate since 2004 and would not use anybody else for my personal or company bookkeeping services. My last accountants made a complete mess of my finances and it is only through the diligence and poignant advice of Carol, that I am now back on track. Carol has provided excellent, no nonsense high end services and advice. Watch out if you think you can slack off around Carol! Using her financial and bookkeeping skills is truly a privilege. Thanks Carol, for all your hard work.
