Accounting Software Solutions

Business demands up to date, accurate financial information.

Cashflow Manager is our preferred software for businesses. Visit www.cashflow-manager.com to learn more about each product.

Cashflow Manager is the simplest GST bookkeeping solution for your small and micro-business clients. It simply lets clients record their receipts and payments into columns (just like a manual cash book) and because each column is labelled with a 'GST' tax type, the program automatically calculates the GST and produces reports that make the preparation of BAS's and tax returns a breeze.

Choosing the right system for your business can be a difficult one. Please contact us to discuss your requirements and we can provide you with a cost effective solution tailored to meet your needs.

Secure File Transfer is a facility that allows the safe and secure exchange of confidential files or documents between you and us.

Email is very convenient in our business world, there is no doubting that. However email messages and attachments can be intercepted by third parties, putting your privacy and identity at risk if used to send confidential files or documents. Secure File Transfer eliminates this risk.

Login to Secure File Transfer, or contact us if you require a username and password.
