Engaging Dollars + Sense will be the best decision you make

“Getting Dollars & Sense on boards to assist us with running our business is easily and without question, the smartest decision we ever made. They continually go above and beyond to assist us and we would be lost without them. No two ways about it.”

Brett O’Riley, Owner of True North, Coburg

“Helen and the team at Dollars and Sense are quick and thorough. Before meeting Helen, I had tried 2 other bookkeepers over the 5 years running my business and D&S are by far the most reliable and easy to talk to. They speak in terminology I understand and keep my accounting up to date. As someone that doesn’t understand numbers, these people are a lifesaver!”

“I can honestly say hiring Helen and her team was definitely one of the best decisions I have made.  I have confidence that she will get the job done to the high standards that I require giving me back time to work on other aspects of the business.”

“We have worked with Dollar & Sense for over 5 years. Helen patiently turned a mess into a balanced on the dot bookkeeping. Helen is dedicated, dynamic and highly intelligent. We love her innovative style that makes bookkeeping so easy.”

Adriana Galanis

“Helen has been an asset to my company from the very first meeting. I knew she would bring a sense of clarity and calm to the accounts section of the business. 4 years later and we have never been in better shape due to the experience and attention to detail provided I could not speak more highly of the services provided.”
