Our Story

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.

Vanessa pursues her purpose by working with boards and business owners who are also purpose driven. She helps translate often tricky concepts around finances and money, into a language the leader understands. She uses her data analysing abilities of numbers to tell stories of what is going on in the business to help leaders develop their businesses through the development of a management mindsets. 

This is where the true positive impact of her work creates its’ ripple affect, positively impacting staff, customers, the communities they support and that surround them, making for healthier leaders both financially and mentally. 

Mental health affects us all, and its through her work with purpose driven businesses and organisations and her love of how people tick that Vanessa truly helps others find their purposes, and discover the power of mindset in all areas of their business.
