Our proud history

Carbon, Xero’s largest firm in Australia, launched in Bundaberg in 2020 after we partnered with a local accounting firm, Charter Partners.

In 2020, Charter Partners and Carbon joined forces with the goal of improving our services to local Bundaberg business owners and look forward to what the future holds.

In July 2022, we partnered with local accounting and advisory firm, B. Walker & Co, welcoming new Carbonites and clients to the Carbon network.  With its rich history and ties to the local community, B. Walker & Co shared Carbon Bundaberg’s passion for helping business owners achieve their goals.
