Sonja – Partner
Sonja has been an accountant for a large accounting firm since 2004. She can see a definite need for her clients to manage their bookkeeping better which will save them time and money.
Sonja also realised that she spent a lot of valuable time fixing & re-doing the book work given to her by her clients and their bookkeepers so she could get their books up to scratch for preparing end of year accounts.
On the other hand, book work that comes from great bookkeepers are a pleasure to work with and gave her more time to focus on tax management and forward planning for her clients.
Prior to commencing her accounting career Sonja had her own successful business for 10 years.
Sonja is an accountant with a BCOM and Advanced Dip. She is also a member of The Tax Institute and Institute of Certified Bookkeepers.
Carl – Partner
Carl is passionate about the numbers.
As a former credit manager and executive in commercial banking, Carl saw the need for many clients to better understand what was going on in their business financially. For loan applications, most financial statements prepared by clients or their bookkeepers were not an accurate reflection of where the business was and how it was performing. This would normally lead to the client having to ask accountants to prepare proper financial reports was time consuming and often would delay decisions by the bank.
Very few clients could present management accounts from their bookkeeping system that gave an accurate picture of how the business was actually going.
Quality bookkeeping makes a difference.
Following his banking career, Carl moved to consulting and worked with many clients in industries such as retail, wholesale, investment, development, construction and a variety of professional services. His work involved strategic planning, financial forecasting, getting the books right and preparing financing proposals for clients to present to the Bank.
