Getting behind the Accountants’ RePublic
Xero is proud to support the new Accountants’ RePublic set up by New Zealand industry expert and mentor Viv Brownrigg.
The RePublic is a free community based membership of accounting firms keen to collaborate, innovate and develop their practices. As well as providing support and insight, immersion programmes offer a deeper dive into the issues.
At Xero we see this as a great initiative for accountants who are ready to accept changes brought about by technology and new ways of doing business.
I was lucky enough attend the launch of the RePublic recently and it quickly became clear that this will provide a valuable forum for accountants to learn from peers.
Some excellent examples of firms embracing change include ReSolve Accountants, which has seen huge growth in its business after introducing agreed fee packages to clients based around Xero and our ecosystem of Add-on partners.
BW Chartered Accountants has also had success with an agreed fee structure, citing marketing and technology as key. And DJCA’s Side Kick product is considered the poster child for the ‘future of accounting’.
Kicking off the RePublic schedule of events for the year is The Financial Coach programme in May, which is designed to help accountants raise financial awareness and improve business acumen among their clients.
