Bookkeeping Community Contributor of the Year 2017
- awarded by NZ Bookkeepers Association Incorporate
Linda and Klox Business Solutions are a real asset to our company.
Linda's hard work, initiative and business knowledge helps me to free up my time to concentrate on running the business properly. I can take my time talking to customers face to face when scoping and running jobs. And the best thing is I can get on the tools more often.
I would recommend her services to anyone looking for a wide range of bookkeeping, admin tasks, health and safety, advertising and business development.
She is very good at finding new systems to suit and will customise anything.
Linda helps our team and business run much more efficiently. Very thorough, trustworthy and honest. A pleasure to work with.
- Sam Moody, Director and Certifying Plumber of Moods Plumbing Ltd (June 2014 - current in New Zealand)
Hiring Linda's services was one of the smartest business decisions we have made at H2OFF Ltd when we started the business. She is efficient, effective, knowledgeable, dependable, organised, down-to-earth, friendly and practical. Everything you would want from a bookkeeper.
Our business is expanding all the time and Linda always gracefully handles any new task that is presented to her. We couldn't be happier with Linda and to top it all off our list of outstanding debtors has dropped dramatically as well, thanks to Linda's skills and determination.
We recommend Linda as a true professional with the experience to handle any situation from the simplest bookkeeping to preparing books for accountants use or auditing.
We are forever grateful that she was recommended to us.
- Bob Viana, Former Director from H2Off Limited (2014 - current in New Zealand)
Linda Klok has been a regular guest speaker to my business courses over recent years. Linda is very knowledgeable on a wide range of topics from book-keeping through to social media and she generously gives her time and shares her expertise with my students.
Linda communicates at a level that my students, who are involved in business start-ups, can relate to and understand. Some of my class have no experience in business so Linda does well to demystify the booking keeping element of business which can be daunting for some. The topics she covers are debtor management, Xero and other accounting software, and record keeping. Linda provides these services for clients of her own business so is the perfect person to talk to my classes and she has excellent real life examples. She is always well-prepared and continually researches and updates her presentation to include the latest applications and regulations.
Linda kindly offers a free follow up for students who have attended the presentation and those who have taken her up on the offer are full of praise for her assistance and advice. Her presentations are very well received by the classes who enjoy her presentation style.
I would highly recommend Linda as both a presenter and as a book-keeper, she is a credit to her profession.
- Julie Falls-Anderson from Te Wananga o Aotearoa (2014 - current in New Zealand)
Linda has been supporting my bookkeeping career from my day 1. She laid down a rail to get the necessary knowledge to start my bookkeeping business, such as taking a course at Career Academy. Once I was ready to start my business, she was always behind me and generously spent her time anytime I needed her support or advice. Her advice is always clear, accurate and simple. I deeply appreciate what she has been doing for me. My business could not grow without her contribution.
- Asami Wisjuery, Director from DAP Business Solutions Ltd (2017 to current in New Zealand)
I am the Principal of Accountantz Ltd & Resolve Tax Ltd, where we get our clients out of financial trouble and keep them out of trouble. We are Accountants specializing in negotiating tax debt arrears and often in this work we encounter business owners with poorly maintained financial records, amoungst other issues. Linda has worked with some of our clients in getting their books back in order and working closely with us to get the best solution for our clients. She is a very detailed orientated person who always asks more questions than most people, as she likes to learn and to be accurate in her job. Even though I know a number of capable bookkeepers, Linda is the first I would ask, especially for the more difficult situations where more than just a bookkeeper is needed because of her broad range of skills and capabilities.
- Antony White, Principle of Accountantz Ltd (1995 - current in New Zealand)
I often refer Linda to my new clients who require Xero training, help with PAYE/Payroll systems or general bookkeeping assistance.
The feedback I receive from my clients is that Linda is punctual, has a keen eye for detail, and is very good at explaining the processes around business administration.
I will continue to refer Linda & look forward to working with her more in the future for the mutual benefit of our clients.

Linda has been a tremendous help in carrying out admin for my businesses EMTaC Ltd and Cellalab Ltd. An unexpected bonus has been her enthusiasm, high integrity, computer skills, and above all she is a great motivator.
My gross income had increased significantly owing to her help.
We went to Linda because we had made many mistakes in the setup of our accounting system and
needed help to sort it all out. We also required someone who was an expert to train us to use it properly. Linda found and corrected all of our mistakes, then provided brilliant training so we were able to use the system correctly and efficiently.
Linda is extremely patient, meticulous and efficient. She always follows up
and provides exceptional advice and guidance. Without reservation we recommend Linda as a first-class bookkeeper, as well as trainer.

Linda is thorough, has taken great care and has been extraordinarily
