Moving your accounts to new software can seem daunting.

But rest assured, we have the technical expertise to make the process as straightforward as possible.

We were an early adopter of Xero’s cloud accounting software.

It is user friendly and can be accessed from anywhere at anytime.

We get you up to competency quickly and painlessly, so you can get back to doing what you do best.

Some of the services we provide to not for profits, charities and associations include;

  • Financial systems assessment  – a top-to-bottom review of your accounting processes with clear, prioritised recommendations for compliance and efficiency
  • Reporting – we can help you to develop report layouts and packs to suit your organisation’s information needs using Xero and Spotlight Reporting
  • Xero optimisation – we ensure your cost centre framework and chart of accounts is structured to provide the information you need, and we’ll help you to maximise your use of Xero’s tools to ensure efficiency.
  • National Standard Chart of Accounts – agreed to by all Australian governments, the NSCOA has been implemented by a number of State Governments to reduce red tape and is now owned by the ACNC.  AFG can help you to map your current structure to the NSCOA and migrate your accounting data for ease of reporting.
