Our proud history

In early 2019, Carbon opened our doors in Sydney after welcoming the team at The Accounts Studio to the Carbon family.

The team of bookkeepers, based in Surry Hills, have been helping local businesses in Sydney with all things bookkeeping for many years. They had established a reputation as one of Xero’s most efficient bookkeeping firms in New South Wales, and Carbon Sydney is proud to have continued this since we joined forces.

Proudly supporting our Sydney Community

Giving back to our local community is very important to Carbon and is something we do across all our offices. To us, giving back requires more than just a monetary donation, so in addition to that we also get involved in various activities to raise awareness and funds.

A few of the great causes we’ve gotten behind are Hootstoke, Movember, R U OK? Day and the Make a Wish Foundation. If you have a suggestion of how we can give back to the Sydney community, please let us know!

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 Sydney 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 Sydney office is open Monday to Friday, 9:00am to 5:30pm.

What does a virtual CFO do?

A virtual Chief Financial Officer (CFO) is your trusted business adviser. Carbon Sydney's 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 Sydney 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.
