I am a qualified accountant with over 20 years experience in finance roles and consider myself hands on in all aspects. In UK I was the management accountant for a drill manufacturer for six years before migrating to Australia in January 2006 where I became the Financial Controller for a busy transport company. In 2010 I became the Chief Financial Officer for an International Freight Forwarder helping the company expansion with the creation of branches in Melbourne and Sydney in addition to the head office in Brisbane. Working in a busy office environment, I have gained excellent organisational skills as well as a broad experience of computer systems to complement my extensive experience and technical knowledge. In 2016 I completed my MBA and became a registered BAS Agent.
After relocating in November 2016 to Kingscliff, Northern NSW, I formed Bannister Accountancy Services to provide accounting support and consulting services to small and medium sized businesses, particularly focusing on the Transport, Logistics and Freight Forwarding Industry. I am a Cargowise Certified Professional and with the help of my IT partner I am able to remote into your IT system or visit your office depending on your preference.
With over ten years experience in Edi Cargowise and Translogix systems along with MYOB, Microsoft Suite and XERO experience I am able to help you with the Accounting and Admin processes from hands on work or guidance for your existing staff, to providing meaningful reporting that will help your Company grow and improve your business.
