Bookkeeping & CFO Services Partner

Wellington Takakura: Your Expert Virtual CFO and Bookkeeper

After eight years working as an accounting supervisor in Brazil, Wellington noticed that he was missing something in his career and in his personal life. In 2010 he decided to leave his job to challenge himself by moving to Australia. The first challenge was to learn English so that he’d be able to find a job and secondly, the adaptation process was much harder than expected! The plan was to move back to Brazil after six months of learning English, which he had hoped would enable me to build a better career in Brazil.

He fell in love with Australia, and so decided to extend his stay and studied for a Diploma of Accounting, Certificate IV in Business and then Masters of Accounting. The challenge did not finish there. The next step would be getting a job in accounting to get familiar with the Australian business culture and also put in practice everything that he had learnt from university, teamed with his professional experience back in Brazil. His first accounting job in Australia last three months as an intern in a bookkeeping firm. After the three months internship, he was employed as junior bookkeeper for two years before his journey with The Accounts Studio began.

Wellington’s career trajectory took a significant turn when he joined The Accounts Studio, where he dedicated himself to refining his professional skills with a singular focus: alleviating the bookkeeping burdens for his clients. This commitment to excellence and client service did not go unnoticed. In 2019, a strategic merger saw The Accounts Studio join forces with Carbon Group, culminating in the launch of Carbon Sydney. This move elevated Wellington to a partner role, marking yet another milestone in his ever-evolving career journey.
