Banklink (a streamlined accounting system)

Simplify your life with BankLink

Free yourself from the stress of ‘bookwork’ by adopting BankLink. BankLink is a link straight from your bank to your accountant removing the need for you to spend hours writing out records or sitting at the computer doing "the books".

It works by collecting an electronic copy of your bank statement data (with your authority) directly from your financial institution and delivering it straight to us, without the risks associated with online systems such as internet banking.

You still have complete control over your information and can chose from a range of levels within the BankLink range to suit your individual needs. For those who would prefer to use a paper-based system, right though to those who require a more sophisticated electronic system complete with estimates, budgeting, and reporting.
