If there’s anything certain to send a writer, artist, designer or musician into a tailspin it’s a spreadsheet. Don’t worry though, because numbers are our happy place. We’ll get to know your business and take control of the financial reins while you get back to being creative.

Ready to find a creative solution to your finances? Let’s talk.

LEt's Talk

We’re not going to lie. If someone told us we had to design a website or play killer riffs in front of a crowd, we’d freak out. So it’d be no surprise to us if you have a similar reaction when you think about cash flow, taxes and everything else to do with your finances.

You know how you feel about words, colours, musical notes and putting them all together in beautiful ways? That’s how much we love numbers. As accountants, bookkeepers and business advisors, we’re experts at recording and interpreting financial information, so we can take the pain away from the business side of your small business.

We get to know you, your business, your hopes and dreams, then we formulate new and better ways of doing things, specific to the way you work. You might find your new financial plan is not as scary as you think. It could even afford you freedom to become more creative.

“Illumin8 practice what they preach. They're forward-thinking & engage with their clients.”

GOT 
QUESTIONS?

We're more than happy to help.

Do you provide support with applying for loans, funding or grants?

Got growth plans that need funding? Most grants and all banks are going to want to see accurate financial records and reports before dropping that sweet cashola into your account. Our team of experts can provide you with guidance to access grants and loans and help you achieve your goals faster.

Can you set-up or help streamline my accounting and finance processes?

We’ve got our heads in the cloud — in a good way. Using a cloud accounting program and other technology can streamline business processes and drive efficiency. Imagine not spending hours scanning receipts or typing up invoices because you’ve put those processes on autopilot. We’re all about helping you work smarter, not harder.

Do you provide support with cash flow, budgeting and forecasting?

If those three words make you cringe, read on. Ensuring you’re invoicing a decent amount of money each month is important, but you also need to think about cash flow, budgeting and forecasting. Because revenue means nothing if you’re seriously underquoting or your clients aren’t paying on time. Money flowing into your business makes life easier and allows your mind the freedom to get creative. We can help you with all of that.

I need expert advice about business planning, can you help?

We can provide you with strategic business advice to help you make the most of the present and plan for the future. That could involve putting together a five-year plan for your business, complete with goals and milestones, or workshopping how you can bring on employees or subcontractors while still being profitable, plus a whole lot of other stuff in between.

Can you help with managing company finances?

Even if you did well at maths in high school, you might not know very much about keeping a track of the finances in your small business. Still managing your money in a notebook or spreadsheet? Then it might be time to talk to an accountant who can help you streamline the management of your finances with access-anywhere technology. Yep. Say hello to cloud accounting, which brings accurate business metrics to your fingertips, any time and anywhere.

Do you help with tax compliance and reporting?

If you tend to avoid calls with the ATO and leave all the thinking about your tax until the end of the financial year, you’re not alone. Without the help of an accountant, tax specialist or bookkeeper it’s easy to become confused by what is required to remain compliant and keep your numbers in the black. As small business tax and accounting specialists, it’s our job to maintain records and reporting and keep you compliant. We’re here to bring you peace of mind when it comes to record keeping and financial reporting, so you can get back to business.

Why choose Illumin8 for your creative business?

Switching accountants or engaging an accountant for your small business the first time is a big deal. We get it. To help you decide if you’re ready and if we’re ‘the one’, we’ve pulled together some As to frequently asked Qs.
