Accounts Etcetera and Etax Local Merge

Accounts Etcetera and Etax Local Consolidate

The Accounts Etcetera and Etax Local partnership quickly proved a winning combination for clients. A merge of the two was simply a logical next step.

After a relationship that spanned over a decade, in 2014 our Etax Local team of accountants and tax agents partnered with the bookkeeping team at Accounts Etcetera. The intention was for Etax Local to work directly with the bookkeeping experts at Accounts Etcetera in a bid to provide a more holistic service offering for our small business clients.

Two years on, with the partnership well received by clients of both entities, the logical step was to simply merge Accounts Etcetera with Etax Local. Thus providing a unified, coherent service provider to small business owners throughout Australia.
