Claire Van Holland is the owner of CV Ledger, a small accounting firm specializing in small businesses in the creative field. Claire is creative herself especially in how she uses her background to help her clients. “I have a corporate finance background mostly in the tech and media space and I’ve always been a Jill of all trades.
I was doing a lot of strategic planning and collecting and analyzing data to increase revenue and optimize efficiency.” Little did she know she would soon be applying her experience in new ways.
Claire’s journey to Xero
“I ended up starting a furniture company with my husband and decided to take care of our accounting and bookkeeping. In doing so, I realized that this service was a need for other small businesses and entrepreneurs and that motivated me to start my practice.
I thought it would be really interesting to apply my corporate experience to small business.” Claire spent the next six months getting up to speed with Xero and learning her way around small business accounting.
