    Who are you?
    We are AccountKit - we've created an online toolkit for accountants to service both our own practice and the broader accounting community, primarily in AU. 

    What do you do?
    We have a set of tools that integrate with Xero, Xero Practice Manager and a bunch of other essential apps for a cloud accounting / bookkeeping practice. The aim is to automate, reduce clicks and create visibility across a variety of usually manual tasks. It's a modular kit, in that they can pick and choose which tools they'd like to use - such as Business Structure Diagrams, Inter-entity Loan reconciliation tool, Equipment Finance schedules, Correspondence Registers etc.
