KEF Accounting have been my accountants for many years now and have been an integral part of my business. Aside from the day to day accounting, taxation and compliance work, they have also guided me with cash flow projections at the initial start-up of my business; assisted with financial planning with regards to my super, income and life insurances – even my children’s savings accounts.
Kirsten Fowler, the Principle at KEF Accounting is my go-to-lady when I’m about to have a heart attache from being pulled in so many different directions – she even assisted with my finance needs by putting me on to some great financiers such as Moody Kiddell & Partners. From recommending OnPlatinum for my telephone and computing needs to putting me on to someone for my accounting software integration for online shopping and redesigning my entire website and online presence through Pixel Portal – they certainly have helpful contacts.
Kirsten and KEF Accounting have been instrumental in assisting me with the day to day stresses of running my own business and are always there to supply proactive advice. It’s really great to know they have my back at all times.
One word, outstanding!
We have experienced understanding and togetherness. Finally we have found someone on the same page as us, working with us.
Professionalism and constant communication: they know where we’re up to in the year, are able to visually show us performance and projections. By phone or email KEF are always there for helpful advice and commitment to keeping us in the loop.
We have transferred from our old system of business documentation to Xero – we couldn’t be happier with this new system, extremely simple and easy to use and a very clean format. KEF Accounting made the conversion to Xero seem effortless, keeping us informed throughout the process and always on standby with helpful advice.
We would recommend anyone who expects such strong qualities in a business to really consider KEF Accounting to handle their accounts.
We are so happy with our move over to KEF – wish we did it sooner!
Kirsten Fowler of KEF Accounting has been our accountant since 2006. In March 2006, my husband and I purchased a business. Kirsten was integral in the analysis and decision making surrounding the best way to setup and structure our company and family trust.
We found Kirsten very helpful and easy to communicate with. Nothing was a problem, and we felt very confident in her ability to organise all aspects of our business requirements. Over the years that have followed, she has been professional and reliable in preparing our annual accounts, communicating with the ATO and lodging our BAS on a quarterly basis. Her office is a pleasure to deal with, and all enquiries are followed up promptly and professionally. Any other matters that need attention concerning ASIC and our company are always completed in a timely manner. We have valued her advice over the years and appreciate her willingness to assist us in any way with any business issue.
Kirsten and the team at KEF Accounting do more than just accounting for our businesses, they work together and take the worry out of tax and all the details that we don’t always keep up with or understand.
When we hand our books over, and then later get the KEF paperwork back, we know we never need to give it a second thought or check it all through – it is always spot on.
If one of the harder parts of being in business is the bookwork in the background, then KEF definitely makes life easier for us. In addition to just making the figures work for the quarterly BAS and annual tax cycle, Kirsten helps us to make things run smoothly with the “bigger picture” in mind.
We value the friendly, quality service from KEF and would recommend them to anyone who needs a great accounting team.
I can’t recommend Kirsten and the team at KEF Accounting highly enough. I have recommended them to family and friends and they in turn are doing the same, proving that a quality accountant is hard to find, but when found, is greatly sought after. When you are choosing an accountant, you want someone who knows their stuff, someone who communicates effectively and in a timely manner i.e. returns phone calls!, and someone who is looking out for you and your business. Kirsten and KEF Accounting are all of these things and provide these services with reasonable fees.
For us personally Kirsten has assisted our small business in many ways – not just getting the normal BAS and Tax returns lodged but considering any new legislation changes and how they may affect our structure. Importantly, she has helped us get through some tough times and is now steering our business towards growth and opening up opportunities. Recently we were in a situation where our lease was coming to an end and we were looking at our options, it was Kirsten who suggested that we consider setting up a SMSF to purchase a property that our business could lease back. Previous to that, it was Kirsten who recommended a great broker who set up our car financing quickly and easily. They are not just accountants they are your small business partners.
