About us

We want our clients to roll out of bed and devote their time to what they value most: friends, family, dreams, passions and side hustles - not paperwork. But we’re more than just number crunchers. Through cloud-based technology and innovative solutions for growth, we’re unshackling small business owners, freeing them from outdated, cumbersome business processes.

We’re not just ahead of the curve, we’re changing it, giving more freedom back to you. We have evolved to create greater impact across your business. We are freedom fighters. We are rebels with a cause. We are Illumin8!

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.
