Carrick Aland are Xero’s QLD Accounting Partner of the Year 2018!
The recognition also means automatic shortlisting as ‘Australian Accounting Partner of the Year’ Finalist in the 2018 Xero Awards.
The announcement comes in the lead up to Xerocon 2018 to be held in Brisbane later this year. The Xero awards showcase the ‘Xero heroes’ among accounting practices, bookkeeping firms or app partners that deserve to be recognised.
Carrick Aland Managing Partner Wayne Turner said he is thrilled with the state award.
“We have made leaps and bounds in the past few years to embrace accounting technology and the advantages it offers our firm and our clients,” says Wayne. “This has happened in no small part thanks to the dedication of our entire accounting team in Dalby, Toowoomba and Chinchilla.”
“What is particularly notable is the impact we’ve been able to achieve with farming business clients by using cloud accounting integrated with specialist apps such as Figured. Our clients can tap into a deeper level of financial data that allows them to make better-informed decisions.”
“One of the biggest benefits is being able to see the bigger picture and comment collaboratively on budgets and budgets vs actuals. Our clients have always been able to budget, be it on paper or in their heads, but putting those numbers into software that enables input from a client’s advisors just works better.”
“We wish all state winners and national finalists the best of luck and look forward to celebrating everything Xero with our accounting colleagues in September.”
Xero will be announcing the winners at an exclusive event to be held on the eve of Xerocon Brisbane 2018, 4 September.
