See what our members have to say about the benefits of NZQBA:

“I am loving the opportunity to become a book keeper from home as I am a stay at home mum, therefore the chance to gain a qualification to allow me to work from home also allows me to have the confidence to work for myself and not have to worry about my child getting sick when in daycare/school as it is the type of job I can work in with my own life. Im also loving the opportunity as it will help in the future when my partner becomes self employed and we will be able to confidently do our own book keeping, keeping the business within the family so to speak” Fiona Campbell, NZQBA Member
