About us

Accounts Direct are accountants for business owners. We’re entirely service-led – meaning we put the customer at the heart of everything we do.

Back in 1990, as business owners ourselves, we knew we needed a real accountant that truly understood what made our lives worth living. We’d looked for one and come up short (and frazzled). So, we trained to become accountants ourselves. Collectively, we’ve owned and seen it all in business. From chip shops to pubs, paintball centres to cash and carries, you name it, we’ve run it. Which is why we’re so good at helping business owners now. We’re all about making your lives easier. We know you need more hours in the day, more freedom to get creative, and (probably) more money to keep things running.

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.
