Future-proof your business

The way we do business is changing fast and all entrepreneurs need to consider what they need to change to remain profitable, or better – how to grow.

"In today's business environment, if you stand still, you will soon be going backwards." – Director, Glenn Foster


Definition of bean counter in English:

noun informal

A person, typically an accountantor bureaucrat

perceived as placing excessive emphasis on controlling 

expenditure and budgets:

"their bean counters will switch to

 a new way of calculating GDP"


Cloud software such as Xero, MYOB, SmartPayroll and many more, have made life much easier company administration.

With less time spent on daily bookkeeping tasks – company owners have more time to focus on developing the business with up-to-date information. And, Foster and Co. has more time to dedicate to developing their clients' businesses.

However, be prepared to work with a team that tells it like it is. We help you adopt a culture of accountability and responsibility for reaching your key performance indicators (KPIs) and financial aspirations. 

Where is your business going?

You know your business and lifestyle goals best and the team at Foster & Co will work with you to develop a strategy to reach those goals.

Whether you are a baby boomer dreaming of days at the beach; a corporate considering starting your own business or a director keen to strengthen business performance – the Foster & Co chartered accountants can assist.

Annual Complimentary Client Review 

Foster & Co takes time out to have an annual Complimentary Client Review with all existing clients.

Far more than presenting the annual accounts, the review is a time to explain what the numbers mean, identify changes and discuss the future direction of the client's business.

This is an important element of business planning for all Foster and Co. clients.

Not currently a client? We'd be happy to discuss your business plans and how the Foster & Co. can help you reach your goals.

Contact us today on +64 9 2712921 for a proactive complimentary accounting and business advice meeting.
