What our clients are saying
Mike brought sanity and rational thinking to our organization when we were surrounded by hype. Along with a dogmatic approach to Accounting and backed by an up-to-date knowledge of current practices, Mike navigated us through a time that could have otherwise gone horribly wrong. Before you pay for a new business, I strongly suggest you invest in an independent and clear thinking assessment first. Tax and accounting is not just filing a return. It is the primary information source that everyday decisions must be based on. Mike got it right for us.
Kevin Evans | Stockbroking Portfolio Manager

Mike Mantel worked as my Financial Director from 2010 to 2012 whilst I was the Managing Director for Bell Equipment Company Zambia (Pty) Ltd. Mike joined us in very trying times but was able to turn our finance and administration department around in a very short period. We faced serious issues with our staff, systems and controls and Mike was able to put corrective action, procedures and policies in place to rectify a large number of these issues. Furthermore, we avoided, largely through his efforts, a qualified audit report and over the two year improved our internal audit outcomes dramatically. I hereby have no reservation whatsoever in recommending Mike.
Bruce Paterson | Chief Executive Officer

As a new business owner, I obviously needed an accountant to help guide and educate me along the way to ensure I was handling certain aspects of my company properly. After leaving messages for several firms in the area, Mr. Mantel was the first one to pick up the phone. After a long discussion about my business and a face to face meeting, it was clear that Mr. Mantel cared about his customers, and offered reasonable pricing. Not only does he handle my payroll and all subsequent tax reporting, but he goes the extra mile to assist me in researching topics to help me better understand the process of what we are doing. I would recommend Online Accountant's service to anyone who appreciates a quality level of service, at a reasonable price.
