Our Why



You know the famous saying … Its not the what, its the WHY

CloudCounting was established because Tracey, working as a Chartered Accountant and Xero expert here in Brisbane, found time and time again that “traditional” accountants were not servicing their client base properly. Tracey has worked in Big Four Accountancy firms – we now provide that same professional service to you at a fraction of the cost.  Why pay $300+ an hour?  Check out our very reasonable fees here.

Tired of dealing with a “new” junior accountant each year?  Larger firms tend to have a lot of turnover.  All of our staff has been with CloudCounting since the beginning of their careers.  We are proud of this and you can expect to work with the same staff each year.

The fees kept getting bigger and bigger and bigger, but the service levels became smaller and smaller.

Small Businesses need Small Business Experts

This became evident when the year end journals were returned with no help offered to the client to show how to enter them into their accounting software, balance and roll forward.

The year end tax process should not be mystifying … it is important for you as a small business to understand what changes are being made and participate in the decision making process.

CloudCounting visits you on site and prepares your BAS, Taxation returns and year end compliance with you. We explain the reason for each year end journal entry and help you record them into your accounting system.

In addition, it was clear that many accountants did not understand how to use (and how to migrate clients to) the latest versions of MYOB and Xero. Year end journals that impact debtors, creditors and inventory must be entered in a special way to keep control accounts in balance.

We believe in the ‘single source of truth’.  We use Xero for day to day accounting, we use Xero for BAS lodgement and we use Xero for year end and financial statement preparation.  No need to transfer data to other ledgers, and no need for you to pay huge fees to have your year end and taxation work prepared.  We also use Xero to run our practice management systems.

We’re Accountants For Modern Times

Modern times call for modern technology and the experience and expertise to use them.

“Chantal made me feel instantly comfortable. I had no idea what I was doing with Xero until CloudCounting gave me training on how to do my books properly.  It took me about two sessions but I now understand what I am doing and why I am doing it!!

It went from a total stress out to me feeling in control ……and saved my business a fortune in the meantime!”
