Starting a business is never easy but getting a new hospitality venture off ground during a global pandemic was next level for Ashley and Barry. They found comfort in the support provided by Accounting Professionals, helping them navigate through the start up process and helping them understand how to run a business effectively.
“Covid was obviously a financially tumultuous time for everyone but given we were in a pretty new stage of owning a small business we were able to be incredibly adaptable.”
- Negotiations with previous owner and landlord
- Liquor license application
- Marketing strategy
- Point of sale processes and support
“Working with Accounting Professionals has given us the ability to see our organisation from the outside in a simple way and start to understand how we can move forward.”
“Generally showing us where we were succeeding. That can sometimes be hard to see from inside your own business. Just having someone who can see that externally and point those things out was really helpful.”
“We go to Accounting Professionals before making any major decisions. They make sure we’re making the right one. Garry has even stood in on a couple of meetings and supported us. If he wasn’t there, we could have come out worse off.”
Ashley and Barry took comfort in the support provided by Accounting Professionals, helping them navigate through the entire start-up process and helping them understand how to run a business effectively.

“There’s numerous times where there’s opportunities for this business to have crashed into ground but it’s been on Garry’s and Megan’s advice that we have been steered in the right direction,” Ashley
“They go above and beyond, even calm us down at times if we were feeling overwhelmed.”
