Janine took charge of the financial reporting for our small non-profit company after our previous accountants left us in the lurch. She smoothly and professionally sorted out and filed all the overdue annual reports and taxes, and got us ship-shape again. Since then, Janine has made keeping everything up to date a smooth and painless process. Thank you!

OpenUp has worked with Bentley Crescent since 2019. We are an NPO with fairly unique and diverse financial management needs and requirements. Janine was able to envision and design a process framework that incorporated each one of our needs in a manner that integrated well into the systems and software we already used. She has worked hands-on alongside the organisation’s executive management to implement the framework, iterate and improve on it annually while also supporting and facilitating oversight of our monthly accounting needs to date. In addition, Janine has successfully completed multiple financial audits with OpenUp. Internally, as a result of Janine’s ongoing commitment to supporting the financial wellbeing and maintenance of the organisation’s accounts, the OpenUp team is able to work both efficiently and independently under her guidance

As a small business owner of Jewellery Design and manufacturing, I always felt overwhelmed by accounting.  I never even considered the strain of dealing with annual taxes and compliances for my business.  I am a creative, and the last thing I would like to spend time on is entering data somewhere I don’t understand.  I ended up frustrated most of the time.  During lockdown, I joined talks hosted by a woman networking group and met Janine from Bentley Crescent, who presented a talk.  I was so impressed by her insight and knowledge I decided to contact her to help me with my accounting difficulties.  It is the best decision I ever made.  The level of service I received was extremely satisfying, and I have literally never met anyone in person.  Everything was done remotely and with minimum hassle. I would gladly recommend them for your accounting needs.
