& Accounting

For growing creative, digital, real estate and start up companies


At Hot Toast,
we believe numbers can talk.

We are experts at transforming complex, overwhelming data into deep business intelligence, strategic analysis and advice that can help you make (and save!) money, and grow your business to its fullest potential.

How can we help you?

Below is just a taste of our more popular services. Request your FREE consultation to explore how we can build the right solution to make your life easier and help your business grow.

I’m ready to outsource my finance function.

You want to focus on building your business while someone else takes care of your company finances. Acting as an outsourced financial management resource is our forte.

I’d like help setting up my systems and accounts.

Our experts can build logical, scalable financial systems, and set you up in Xero, Quickbooks and MYOB, with training if you need it. We are a cloud-based company, using only the latest cloud technology to optimise business process.

I need someone to relieve the burden of company tax.

Not many business owners enjoy managing tax or talking to the ATO. Our qualified tax accountants can help manage your tax obligations, deal with the ATO, and offer specialist advice to ensure you are up-to-date and ready to rock ‘n’ roll.

I need financial reporting, business intelligence, analysis and advice.

Numbers can be tricky little things, and getting your head around exactly what they’re telling you about your business is a real challenge. Let us turn all that data into a clear picture of where your company is now, and where you can take it in the future.

I want someone to manage my books.

Bookkeeping not your strong point? Allow us to get things in order by managing cashflow, payroll, forecasting and reporting while you focus on delivering work for your clients.

I’d like to outsource my export grant application.

Working with international clients? We love extracting as much value as we can get from work you’re already doing with our export grant application management service.

I’d love financial training, coaching and advice.

Our coaching and training packages can be tailored to your precise needs, whether that’s learning how to use and optimise your bookkeeping software, understanding your tax and payroll obligations, or diving right into your business to build a full financial model.

I’m looking for a business partner that understands my industry.

For over 15 years we have enjoyed partnering with creative, technology and innovation companies to contribute to their growth and would love the opportunity to help develop your business.

Meet our Team

We pride ourselves on not being your typical team of bookkeepers and accountants, and are truly passionate about the creative, digital, real estate, technology and innovation industries.
Being able to add value to start-ups and growing businesses is what gets us up in the morning!
