Accounting has changed a lot since the ‘90s.
Contractors now have the choice between personal,
face-to-face accounting, and cutting-edge online accounting.

Want more info? Let us contact you.


At 1st Contact Accounting, we like to give you the best of both worlds. 
The choice, at the end of the day, is yours.

What works best for you?

Face-to-face accounting:

  • Personalised approach that caters to your unique needs
  • Build a long-term relationship with a trusted adviser
  • Assistance with your filing and administrative duties
  • Suits contractors who feel trust is based on a strong relationship with one individual and a human touch

Online accounting:

  • Real-time collaboration between yourself and your accountant
  • Apps that allow you to transact and record info on the go
  • Automated bookkeeping functions
  • Suits tech-savvy contractors who are comfortable working independently, liaising with their accountant on an ad hoc basis
