My wife (Jenni) and I have been clients of Jeannie Anderson from Mayberry Meldrum & Anderson at Murwillumbah for a number of years. We were very dissatisfied with our previous accountants and were recommended to Jeannie by some friends. Jeannie, besides being very knowledgeable in all accountancy and taxation requirements, is also very friendly and approachable on any issue you may have with any financial problem. Everyone at Mayberry, Meldrum and Anderson are very friendly and helpfull and I have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone.
