A word from the founder

Every accountant knows it’s hard to provide exceptional services for your clients when your time is eaten up with day-to-day admin. Every little efficiency gain makes a big difference, although it’s not just about time. With access to the right tools and insights, you can help your clients’ businesses flourish – as well as your own.

My wife Paula and I founded AccountKit in 2015 when we began transitioning our own practice to the cloud and Xero Practice Manager. We wanted a solution to make it easy for accountants like us to perform any task with ease.

Since then, AccountKit has grown to be a kit of essential cloud-based accounting tools that empower any accountant or bookkeeper to perform at their absolute peak. Everything we do is based on an empathetic understanding of our customer. We believe in a promising future for ourselves, our clients and the accounting profession. Our mission at AccountKit is to help deliver that.

Founder & Director of AccountKit
