About Us

We lead business owners to the information they need to scale their businesses without the overwhelm … AND provide the accountability needed to help them get there 

We work as a team - your Finance Team

Professionally Qualified and Xero Certified with decades of SME business experience. Our passion for working with small to medium businesses in innovative and evolving industries has brought us from Sydney to Brisbane and all the way to the enterprising Queensland Central Coast. 

Our clients are based in Sydney, from Northern NSW to Brisbane to the Sunshine Coast, and all the way to Agnes Water/1770, Gladstone and Rockhampton in Central Queensland..

We immerse ourselves in all all areas of our clients' organisations, fully supporting the directors to manage their responsibilities and achieve growth.

During the lockdowns of 2020, having great systems and processes already in place meant we were able to insulate our clients from the worst impacts of lockdowns, get government support and help strategise their business continuation and (for some) exceptional growth in 2021. 

As your Finance Team and Business Advisors, our mission is to ignite your entrepreneurial spirit and help you scale your businesses without the overwhelm... so you can live your best life!

Jenni Hounsell

Jenni Hounsell

Jenni is our tech savvy bookkeeper, and highly experienced with SME’s, STP, cloud business tools, e-filing apps, payroll, and BAS preparation. Her 15 years of experience as a bookkeeper has been gained within accounting firms where she’s been professionally trained, exposed to various complexities and has absorbed a high level of knowledge.

Our Team of Qualified Experts is at Your Service

We're often asked "why does my business need more than a bookkeeper and tax accountant?"

A bookkeeper’s main tasks are recording and reconciling your business transactions. However, a bookkeeper is not a qualified management accountant. Neither is a tax accountant. Bookkeepers and ATO agents can log and organise the figures and prepare returns, but rarely influence business decisions. They don't present a complete set of accrual based accounts with budget results and forecasts each month, and their qualifications and experience (and usefulness to your business) are limited by the narrow scope of compliance work they do.

Not only can Our Team provide you with expert bookkeeping, they can also handle your accounting and tax tasks – all while utilising the latest technology and innovations to speed up your processes. As well as manage cash flow, assist in strategy decision making and risk management and prepare more detailed and complete reports that can give you the ability to make informed financial decisions about your business.

Our Finance Team and Advisors are Qualified Accountants with tertiary degrees in areas of Business, Accounting, Tax Law and International Taxation and over 20 years experience with small businesses. They offer a far wider skillset than that of a bookkeeper or tax agent and provide CFO-functions with the capability to evolve along with your business, offering you:

Complete financial statementsStrategic advice & planningPerformance monitoring & analysis
Monthly  performance reviewsBudgets and forecast preparationPricing & profitability analysis
Control costsTaxation adviceATO & ASIC Compliance
Finance process reviewsCloud accounting & app adviceTraining & coaching 

What are the advantages of combining all these services in one annual package?

Your Finance Team and Advisor at Electra Frost Advisory partner with your business to see your Strategic Plan executed and long-term goals achieved. We are not only working with you every fortnight to keep our business on track, you have the advantage of only having to deal with 1 organisation in regards to your finances which can save your time and also lead to reduced accounting costs at the end of the year.

If all you need is someone to manage your books and keep the ATO off your back, a skilled bookkeeper and tax agent will most likely get the job done for you. 

But if you want to scale your business without the overwhelm so you can live your best life, it's time to weigh up whether compliance services alone are providing enough bang for your buck.. If you want your business to improve its processes, to gain a competitive advantage and thrive in your market, we can help you to meet your goals.

Medium to large businesses typically have an internal Finance Team or CFO on staff. As a small business, you too get the advantage of having highly experienced, fully qualified finance professionals working for you without the commitment and cost of a full-time CFO, giving you an edge and allowing you to run your business knowing your finances are in good hands.

Quality assurance

Electra, our Director, provides oversight, review and quality management of all our services to ensure standards of excellence are maintained. She also connects our clients to a unique ecosystem of technology service providers, legal practitioners, financial advisors, lenders, marketing experts and other specialists and professionals in her network. 

As members of The Institute of Public Accountants, one of three professional accounting bodies recognised in Australian legislation, alongside the Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand (CA ANZ) and CPA Australia, our team must abide by the Code of Ethics and APESB Standards for professional accountants. 

Continuous professional development is undertaken in taxation, software and best practice to keep our knowledge current in times of constant change. We understand the pressures that business owners operate under and treat your business like our own, utilising the best available accounting technologies to handle your work efficiently and carefully. As a client you can call our close knit team with any concern and we'll immediately work towards a solution.
