Meet the Beanies

Anyone can hang up a sign and say they are an accountant.

  • Only Chartered Accountants have trained for 7 years and must undergo continuous training to make sure they are still up with the play.

  • Only Chartered Accountants must comply with the ethics of the Chartered Accountants Australia New Zealand (CAANZ).

  • And only our Chartered Accountants make you feel that they’re working for you.

What our customers say

As a brand new business, with limited accounting knowledge and even less time, I’ve found the team at Beany to be incredible. No patronising jargon, no scary big bills in the mail, just great friendly service.
Kylie Hawker-Green , PR Plus Taupo
Moving my business to Beany was a great decision. They were really personable and helpful. They have made the whole accounts process so simple.
Sean Wakefield , PAINT-IT
This has been the best experience we've had with accountants. Ever. Can't believe how easy, quick and succinct the whole process is. Thanks Beany!
Tracelee Hooton , Four Seasons Kindy
You have been brilliant and have relieved me of the horrible angst I always feel when faced with a tax return to complete! Thanks a million.
