What do financial statement auditors say about VCare?

“We are one of the leading financial statement auditors of retirement villages and rest homes in New Zealand.  We find the V Care accounting module to work very well.  The ORA schedule is a critical accounting document setting out income recognition and liabilities.  V Care does this accurately in a user-friendly way – this is not an easy matter as many of our clients find this very challenging.  It is a schedule that should be kept up to date and V Care does this automatically meaning accurate information is available to the accountants as well as management.”

Gordon Hansen, Partner, PKF Goldsmith Fox Audit

VCare is proud to be sponsoring the RVA Canterbury Regional Forum on the 9th May at Archer Village in Christchurch.
