Who are we

Business Advisory & XERO Experts

As gold partners with Xero we are certified as experts in cloud based accounting and can provide a business advisory service to help you set up and manage your Melbourne based business from anywhere in the world.  Utilising a cloud based accounting system or any one of the many cloud based applications available offers a number of benefits to your business.  Here are a couple of the benefits:

  • Flexibility: Be in Melbourne, Sydney or holidaying in Spain and you have access to your accounts whenever you need it.
  • Increased Collaboration: Cloud-based workflow and file sharing apps help them make updates in real time and gives them full visibility of their collaborations.
  • Automatic Software updates: As small business advisors one of the problems we often see with small business is the lack of compliance small business owners have in ensuring updates to programs occur.  With cloud based applications , these updates occur automatically ensuring you are up to-date all the time.
  • Security: Because your data is stored in the cloud, you can access it no matter what happens to your laptop or computer. Just because a lap top is lost or your computer breaks doesn’t mean you lose you work,  it is stored securely in the cloud.
  • Disaster Recovery: Investing in disaster recovery is often something neglected by small business.  Melbourne advisors, Shakespeare Rae advocate cloud computing, for your tax accounting needs but also for any important facet of your business.

What some of our partners say.

Scott and his team are an integral part of our business

We at Project Materials have been associated with Scott Rae since the start of our business back in 2009. Scott and his team are an integral part of our organisation and have helped us in all financial aspects of a growing business including international reporting to our head office in Germany.

It’s the best decision we ever made

We changed all of our tax matters, personal and business, to Scott Rae around two and a half years ago.  Immediately after seeing Scott we had complete confidence in him! Since then I have had no worries about tax matters as Scott and his team are completely professional and cost effective. They are always available to answer any queries we may have and are diligent in making sure I complete any taxation office requirements on time.

I have no hesitation in referring Scott Rae and his team to family and friends. It’s the best decision we ever made moving our tax to their professional management.
