Carbon Balcatta

Professional Xero Accounting & Bookkeeping Services From Australia's First BAS Agents

WiseClick Business Services merged with Carbon Group in 2016 to form Carbon Balcatta. The team have been providing consultation and training services in accounting software and business systems in Perth for over 15 years. Cheryl and her team are passionate, proud bookkeepers and consultants, who handle their clients' most confidential information with the utmost integrity and respect.

Established in 1999 by director Cheryl Knight, Carbon Balcatta is also home to WiseClick Training; a registered training organisation (RTO # 52602) that delivers both the nationally recognised FNS40215 Certificate IV in Bookkeeping and the FNS40615 Certificate IV in Accounting qualifications. WiseClick's students are taught by accredited trainers and the course includes two days of introduction to accounting to ensure students understand the how and why of debits and credits right from the start of the course.

Our current Certificate IV in Bookkeeping classroom pass rate is double the industry standard. WiseClick trainers and support staff enjoy seeing their mature aged students becoming confident, qualified bookkeepers.

Contact Cheryl and the team today to see how we can help!

Cheryl Knight

Partner

Cheryl previously owned WiseClick, before merging with Carbon to form Carbon Balcatta. She has a bunch of qualifications, including a Cert IV in Mortgage Broking, Bookkeeping and Workplace Training and Assessment, and certifications in Xero, MYOB, Calxa and Workflow Max. When she’s not in the office, you’ll find Cheryl out on the water. She spent six years working on prawn and fish trawlers up north. The long hours and heavy work was made worthwhile with the beautiful ocean views, white sandy beaches and endless supply of fresh seafood. She even raised her son on the boat for the first 12 months of his life!

Sheila has a BSc in Nursing, and was working as a nurse, whilst running her own business, before transferring those skills into the bookkeeping world. She studied her Cert IV in Bookkeeping and Accounting, before becoming a bookkeeper. Outside of work, Sheila loves catching up with friends and spending time in the south west. Her biggest achievement in life; surviving working and the needs of teenage girls (and the husband!).

Tina forms part of the bookkeeping team at Carbon Balcatta. She has a wealth of knowledge in the industry; she worked in accounts and payroll for eight years before leaving to have children. Tina studied for her Cert IV in Bookkeeping whilst looking after her toddlers, then started work as a bookkeeper. She hopes to start yoga one day when she has more time for herself, but for now, she’s just bending over backwards for her children!

Tarryn Drage

Training Co-ordinator

Tarryn was managing two Caltex service stations for her Mum, and studying at WiseClick for Cert IV Bookkeeping. Her bubbly personality makes her an ideal trainer, and so she completed her Cert IV in Training and Assessment. With a lovely voice and manner, the students send in rave reviews on Tarryn’s teaching abilities. Moving into the full time training coordinator position soon means that she uses her administrative and training abilities to the fullest. When she gets some spare time you will find her with family at the speedway or baking up a storm at home.

Kerry Chester

Training Administrator

Coming from icy Ballarat to Perth 10 years ago to start a new business venture (that’s another fun story you can ask her about!) Kerry has been working with Cheryl Knight and the team at WiseClick Training Balcatta as the Training Coordinator since 2009. With a Diploma of Accounting and experience in administration, customer service, sales and human resource roles Kerry has moved to the “back office” as a part timer to concentrate on the compliance areas of the training section. This move to part time will give Kerry more time to travel and just chill out with her family.

She loves to travel and wishes she had more time to tick off her list of countries to visit.
