Accountants for your tomorrow

Accounting for your small business (and your big dreams).

Let’s talk

No one wants to think about small business accounting. But everyone needs to do it. More than just keeping your numbers in check and documents lodged on time, a good accountant will become your trusted ally and advisor on the rollercoaster ride of running a business. That’s us. We’re here to keep you outta jail (more on that later) and kick goals so you can spend more time doing what you love.

As a bunch of number-loving accountants and tax specialists, business advisors and bookkeepers, we’re experts at recording and interpreting financial information. But you’re looking for more than just compliance, right?

Maybe, and this is just a hunch, you’re looking for an accountant that actually cares about you and your business. You know, someone who will take the time to get to know your exact requirements (and even the stuff you didn’t know you needed) and find new and better ways of doing things.

We like to think of the compliance side of accounting as the ‘keeping you out of jail’ part. But that’s really just the bare minimum. We’re here to champion your purpose and vision with accounting and advisory. And ensure you have a good time in the process.

Enter the Illumin8 accounting team. Our innovative, award-winning crew are here to make tax less taxing, align your numbers with your purpose, and give you the strategic guidance to achieve your goals.

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

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

Do you help with compliance, reporting and record keeping?

Sick (or scared) of talking to the ATO? 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 tax compliance, record keeping, and financial reporting.

I’ve never used cloud accounting before, will you help me migrate?

It's been a long time since highschool algebra, right? If you’re managing your money in a notebook or spreadsheet, it might be time to engage an accountant who can help you streamline the management of your finances with access-anywhere technology. Yep. Say hello to cloud accounting — accurate business metrics at your fingertips, anytime and anywhere. We’ll set you up with a Xero account and help you migrate from the nightmare of spreadsheets and shoeboxes to cloud accounting bliss.

Can you help with business planning?

We can provide you with strategic business advisory to help you make the most of the present and plan for the future. Whether that’s putting together a five year plan for your business with goals and milestones, or workshopping how you’re going to invest your profits to minimise tax and maximise growth — and a whole lot of other stuff in between.

Will you help me with cash flow, budgeting and forecasting?

Revenue is important, right? But you know what’s equally (if not more) important? Getting your cash flow, budgeting, and forecasting right. Because revenue means nothing if your margins are bottoming out and your customers aren’t paying on time. And money flowing into your business makes life easier. We can help you with all of that.

Managing my finances is exhausting, can you help me streamline things?

We’ve got our heads in the cloud — in a good way. We’re talking cloud accounting and leveraging technology to streamline business processes and drive efficiency gains. Imagine not spending hours scanning receipts or punching out invoices and putting those processes on autopilot instead. We’re all about helping you work smarter, not harder.

Do you help with loans and funding applications?

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