Sarah Lawrance – CPA, B.Fin

Director and Primary Consultant

Sarah’s love of business began at just eight years old when she would get up early to watch Business Sunday with her father. What followed was a Bachelor of Finance and a stint in the UK perfecting the art of finance on small and medium sized companies throughout Europe.

Upon returning to Australia in 2014, Sarah found her niche working with film, media, advertising and marketing companies.

Sarah founded Hot Toast in 2015 with the goal of helping small to medium businesses scale. Being able to understand the story the numbers tell and provide insights and value to these businesses in a way that supports aggressive growth strategies is why she does what she does.

Craig Heritage

Production Accountant and Bookkeeper

After many years managing large scale construction projects, Craig decided to make a career change to bookkeeping. Craig has always had a love for numbers, which he used to build a successful property portfolio that was featured in Australian Property Investor.

Craig’s love of the commercial aspect of business, attention to detail and ability to think outside the box are part of the unique skill set he brings to any bookkeeping job.

When he isn’t working hard to help businesses grow, he can be found down at Bondi surfing.
