Have a chat with Our Founder and CEO

James Scott

Founder and CEO

Chartered Accountant

I’d love to have a chat with you and hear about your business. Chances are that you started or are planning to start your business for the same reason I started mine.  It’s something you love and something you’re really good at.

My team and I are passionate about helping small business owners set their business up for financial success and supporting you through your business growth. We are a completely cloud based company which allows us to be highly responsive and removes the need for pesky paperwork.

We can help from the get go, setting up Xero, GST registration, business structure and payroll or step in if you’re already started to get your finances humming with forecasting, superannuation, financial modelling and more complex tax compliance or even getting ready to sell.

We will tailor an accounting package to suit your business needs. Our aim is to make it simple for you so you can spend the time doing the work you love.

I’m looking forward to meeting you and getting to know your business.
