“Say it Like it Is”

When you start or grow a business, one of the first and most important things you will think about is how to keep a record of your accounts. Whether your business uses a Bookkeeper or an Accounts Assistant/Manager, you should have an effective accounts management system in place. Unless you have a very small hobby business, an excel spreadsheet just won’t cut it. So if you want your business to run successfully, it is important to choose an accounting system that best suits your needs.

There are a lot of systems out there so which one is the most efficient and best suited for your business?
At GoFi8ure we’ve used every type of accounting package out there, so when clients ask which system will save time, money and is easy to use we highly recommend Xero.

Recognised for excellence in the category Business under $5m turnover – Accounting and Finance, GoFi8ure will join 49 other finalists in this years’ AUT Excellence in Business Support Awards – a record number in the awards seven year history.

What differentiates GoFi8ure from others is we are mobile and certified/qualified i.e. we know what we are doing! Allowing clients to have an accounts person on site at important times each month without actually employing a full time accounts manager.

Our focus is on developing partnerships with clients to help them manage their business, rather than a more traditional transactional style of operation. Only by truly understanding our clients, and the environment in which they operate, can we provide the best advice and support possible.
