Our Aim

Our aim is to minimise the amount of time spent by business owners on their accounting and book-keeping tasks thereby enabling them to reach their business goals and make their business more profitable.

We provide a modern, digital accounting service delivered in a dependable manner so that you can meet these goals.

Why we are different

Before we deliver our services to you, we design an accounting system to suit you.
What makes us different is that we start with a detailed analysis of how the financial side of your business works. We ask questions like:

  • What key information do you need about your business and how often?
  • What bookkeeping tasks are taking too long and how can we automate these?
  • How would you like your financial information presented and on what devices. Eg mobile phone, laptop etc

Once we establish what you need we design a bookkeeping system using Quickbooks online which can give you online up to date financial information about your business. We can recommend add-ons to this so that you can scan and import purchase invoices. If you wish to cut down on our fees, we can train you to use these systems with clearly defined weekly or monthly tasks.

Our Clients

We have a broad portfolio of clients to include retail outlets, general practitioners, dentists, pharmacists, physiotherapists, architects, IT companies, builders, farmers, business consultants, financial advisors and many more.
