5Do I need to have Xero?

Nope. We work with with clients that have Xero and also those that don't or have other accounting software such as MYOB, Quickbooks etc..

We understand that if you might have your own preferred software which you are comfortable with - so we will work with whatever you are comfortable with.

6Why are your services so much more affordable than other accountants?

There are a couple of reasons.

We believe in value-for -money

As business owners ourselves, we understand the importance of getting quality service at the right price. So we built a business giving our clients just that - value-for-money.

Pay for what you need

The majority of accountants incorporate the cost of the software such as Xero subscription in their fees leading their clients to pay more. Quite often we find that a lot of clients do not even use all the features they are paying for!

We simply work with whatever the client is comfortable with. If you are using a spreadsheet or using a bank account to manage business activities or if you are using Xero or MYOB - whatever works for you is fine with us.

7How hard is it to change from my existing accountants?
Not hard at all. Once you agree for us to act as your accountants, we’ll get you to sign a Letter of Engagement which sets out our terms and conditions. Then we’ll contact your existing accountant and organise the smooth transfer of any information. You won’t need to contact them at all if you don’t want to. We can take care of the lot.
8Are you registered Tax Agents & Accountants?

We are registered Tax Agents with the Inland Revenue Department. We have an excellent rapport with them and have been awarded Certificate of Achievement for 100% filings for the last 3 years.

We are also Certified Public Accountants under CPA. We are governed by professional standards. This means that the service you get is from a registered professional accountant as oppose to one that has no governing body.
