In January 2010 our director, Vanessa Bamford, returned from living and working as a Financial Controller for one of London’s top event companies, to return to Adelaide to give birth to her first child.
She was approached by a friend to lend a hand out with some bookkeeping for the short term period and this is when Vision Beyond Business was born.
Vanessa is a Chartered Accountant, Fellow of the Taxation Institute of Australia, a registered Tax Agent, Xero Gold Champion Partner, Xero Payroll Certified, Xero Advisor Certified, a registered Futrli Partner, registered Receipt Bank Partner and member of SA Woman.
Vanessa officially set up the business in May of 2010 from a small desk in her lounge room, when word of mouth spread of her services. Offering bookkeeping, accounting, taxation and advice, the business grew from strength to strength.
Over the following 8 years, the business grew and grew further from word of mouth to a team of 7 staff with a strong focus on leading a purposeful and wellbeing focused accounting practice.
In 2019 the business was restructured from the traditional accounting firm, to pursue work which would see the practice follow our purpose of making a positive impact for small businesses, organisations, our community, our people and our future.
The business focuses on working with purpose-driven businesses, social enterprises and not for profits by providing an end to end finance service with a core focus of helping the businesses and organisations thrive to make a further positive impact.
Our clients are purpose-driven business owners who do what they love and have a purpose in what they do. We specialise in working with health services, NDIS providers and health professional practitioners and have worked within the industry now for over 10 years.
