I had it on good authority that Make Cents had expertise in the Interior Design and Construction industry but as my business has grown into other areas, Make Cents have always had the knowledge and strategy I need to ensure my business works more effectively and efficiently.

My accounts were always an inconvenience for me and thus were often in a mess. The systems and processes that we have in place now mean that end of quarter or end of year require very little input from me as everything feeds into Xero and is reconciled for me as we go meaning no disruption or panic at the end of year as well as no surprises.

I know that I receive the best possible advice and attention to my business that I can get and that as I grow, Shane and the Make Cents team offer new and appropriate ways to manage the challenges that are presented to me whether that be creating new businesses or trusts, creating strategies for cashflow or providing files or advice when I need it for financing purposes.

Shane and the team at Make Cents are efficient! I have, and will continue to use them into the future and have no hesitation in recommending them to others.

I started working with Make Cents 4 years ago when I bought into a restaurant in Surry Hills, and they were the accountants for that business.

I also hired them for an ASIC regulated financial services company I had just started at that time as I needed an accountant to assist with that business too. The AFSL has since flourished and throughout this time, Make Cents’ role has grown as the needs of the business have grown and become more complex.

I now consider my relationship with the team at Makes Cents as extremely strong, as if they were themselves an extended part of the company.

Shane and Alison are very diligent and reliable, and I value most the professionalism and attention to detail they bring to the business.

They also offer the scalability that the business requires…and as it has grown from a start up to $100+ million income business, have always kept up with the pace of all our financial and regulatory requirements.

In one word, I would describe Make Cents as “invaluable” and I would not hesitate to refer Make Cents to others.

Make Cents accounting is a total solution based service for my business. Working with partners and suppliers all over the world, Shane and his team are no strangers to international business law and practices and are always flexible with meetings that need to be arranged between different time zones.

The development and awareness of current technology systems is second to none. The systems put in place by Make Cents Accounting have saved my business vast amounts of time and money compared to traditional administrative practices.

The service I receive is always professional, punctual and above all personal which is very important for me and our team.

I would highly recommend Make Cents Accounting to any firm looking for an accounting team for a new venture or looking to replace current partners.

I first engaged Make Cents as a young hopeful (read: hopeless) entrepreneur. With a sole trader ABN for contracting and a fledgling company just registered with a business partner, I needed guidance on the correct reporting procedures, setup and best practices for my income streams. I would continue contracting until my business had grown enough to support myself and a couple of staff, then the expansion occurred rapidly. Over the course of a few short years we expanded the business size through revenue and employees by a factor of 10 until we were acquired by a multinational corporation.

At every step, we received detailed and accurate reporting to fulfil our corporate obligations from Make Cents. Most importantly for a growing enterprise though, Make Cents helped guide us with straight-up, insightful advice throughout the evolving journey.

Make Cents continues to provide our business with preparation of statutory reporting, aid in detailed management reporting to our parent company overseas, provide intelligent tax advice and support our internal finance functions. I also continue to use Shane as an excellent personal tax advisor.

Shane Kouros has been with us since the beginning, and understands intimately the needs of our business and the individual Directors, as it has grown. That background knowledge has transferred accordingly to result in a higher level of service for every meeting or new enquiry.

Shane and the team are super friendly and approachable, which was particularly important when just starting out and their experience was limited. No question asked is too naïve. The Make Cents team have always made us feel comfortable in the handling of our account. We are in great hands.

In one word, I’d describe them as ‘reliable’. Would I refer them to others? Absolutely!

Make Cents understands the needs of businesses and individuals from many varied situations and financial positions. Their detailed accuracy and thoroughness applied to accounting combined with an excellent level of service mean they are a well trusted and highly recommended financial services business.

I engaged MCA from the start as I heard a lot of good things about their expertise around small business start-ups and tax planning. I’ve been with them since 2010.

As I’ve now been with them for such a long period of time, they understand exactly what my business is about and what I expect from them. I’d describe them as offering dynamic service.

I particularly value that I can call them at any time during the day, and on some occasions after business hours, and know someone will look after my requests. Their knowledge around appropriate company structures particularly with my business start-up has been priceless!

I have referred many friends, family and business associates to MCA.
