About us

We are proud to be the winner of this year’s Xero’s small firm of the year award. This means that we are ideally placed to help you get the most out of Xero. If you are thinking of moving to Xero, or are using Xero but feel your accountant does just “not get Xero” then please call us. We would love to show you how Xero, used correctly, can give you back time. Time you could spend growing your business, or simply time to take an afternoon off to spend with your family.

We use Xero for our own accounts and work very closely with our clients to ensure that they enjoy using it as much as we do and get the full benefit of being in the cloud. Our aim is to take away the stress of the accounting side of things and let you focus on what you do best, running your business.

Please note, Xero doesn't guarantee the service of any one advisor

We don’t review advisor listings and we don’t recommend or guarantee the service provided by any one advisor, so make sure you check them out yourself and get comfortable with them yourself.

Xero certification means that some or all team members have completed courses and been assessed by Xero as proficient in the use of the Xero application.

Xero specialisation means that some or all team members have completed several short learning modules to develop skills in that area.

Xero doesn’t assess any individual advisor’s or firm’s proficiency as an accountant, bookkeeper or financial advisor. And Xero certified advisors and advisors with industry or bank specialisations are not employees of Xero.
