Carrick Aland named QLD Accounting Partner of the Year 2018 by Xero

Carrick Aland have been named 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 statewide recognition.

“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.”

“Our clients using Xero experience less anxiety and more confidence around knowing their financial position, especially cash flow which they can see in real time on any device, anywhere. This helps them work towards achieving their overriding financial goals."

“We wish all state winners and national finalists the best of luck and look forward to celebrating at Xerocon 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.
