This week, we’re very pleased to announce our inclusion in the 2020 AFR Fast 100! It’s an exciting moment for us to be recognised as Australia’s seventh fastest growing company by the Australian Financial Review.

Our inclusion in the AFR Fast 100 causes us to reflect on how far we’ve come since 2013, and reinforces our commitment to the journey ahead.

Our mission is to transform the way accountants and their clients do business together.

In the words of our founder and CEO, Guy Pearson, “It’s an amazing achievement for our team, who live every day (especially at the moment) to help bookkeepers and accountants run a streamlined digital accounting practice. This means they can spend more time helping their SMB clients understand the numbers, and implement cutting edge technology to speed up the timeframe it can be delivered.”

For us, like many high growth technology companies, we invest more than we receive in revenue to improve our product and our service. Ultimately, we have longer term gain in mind, and we want to build a longstanding company for our customers.

When we hit breakeven in 2019, it became clear it was time to accelerate our growth once again. Throughout this journey, and particularly during our Series B raise last year, we've been thankful to have the continued support of our investors and board to back us up in our mission.

Founders Guy Pearson and Dane Thomas lead by example alongside the global team of 109 employees. We’re all equally inspired knowing that we’re improving the lives of accountants and bookkeepers who, in turn, help business owners worldwide run better businesses.

Together, we're better everyday.
