Our proud history

In 2023, we launched Carbon St Leonards after a successful partnership with Numeric Eight, a leading bookkeeping and accounts management firm in Sydney. Numeric Eight was founded in 2006 by Trudi Yip and has carved its niche through unwavering dedication to client-focused bookkeeping solutions.

In collaboration with Carbon’s leading Bookkeeping & CFO Services Partner in New South Wales, Wellington Takakura, Carbon St Leonards stands poised to serve businesses across the broader Sydney region, catering to their diverse bookkeeping, accounting and financial needs.

Proudly supporting our St Leonards Community

Supporting our local community is an important value of Carbon St Leonards and our Carbonites. Giving back to organisations and causes that need our support is something we have been passionate about since Carbon launched.

We believe in showing our support in more ways than just monetary donations and encourage all Carbonites to get involved in fundraising for great causes both locally and within their state.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I need a bookkeeper?

A bookkeeper can give you back the time you've spent trying to balance your books or filling out paperwork. We can introduce accounting software like Xero or MYOB that automate a lot of your processes, allowing you to focus on other areas of your business. We also help manage cash flow, ensure you're staying compliant and are usually a cheaper alternative to a full-time employee.

What payment methods can I use?

We accept payment via direct debit, credit card (Visa and Mastercard), cheque and bank transfers.

What services do you offer?

We offer Bookkeeping & CFO Services in-house and as part of the larger Carbon Group network, we also can assist with accounting and tax, financial planning, business insurance, finance and lending, R&D and grants and concierge services.

Can you help me with my payroll?

Our payroll specialists in St Leonards are here to help set up your new payroll system for you to manage in-house, process your employee’s pay and provide training with online payroll systems.

What are your opening hours?

Our St Leonards office is open Monday to Friday, 9:00am to 5:00pm.

What does a virtual CFO do?

A virtual Chief Financial Officer (CFO) is your trusted business adviser. Carbon St Leonards'virtual CFOs work with you to develop new growth strategies based on your business data and insights. We also assist with ongoing compliance with auditors and tax professionals, making sure your business is listing-ready, creating compliant general purpose financial statements and more.

What are the benefits of a multi-service firm?

Every business is different, so at Carbon St Leonards we tailor our service specifically to you and your goals. Imagine when this same approach is applied across all aspects of your business, meaning it’s all aligned and you aren’t playing middle-man with your bookkeeper, accountant, adviser and broker.
