But don’t just take our word for it, take theirs!

Sai Nitivoranant

The online system made it very easy for me to do tax from overseas. I could upload everything through the system and even schedule for a video meeting. It was my first year working as a freelancer while travelling, and Electra helped to explain everything that was involved tax-wise. Thanks Electra and team!

Mark Lambert

Honest and diligent. I no longer live in Sydney but will continue to be a client as they have well thought out online systems and processes that make it unnecessary to attend the office in person. I have been a client for many years and would recommend Electra Frost Accounting to anyone without hesitation.
