Bookkeeping & Payroll

We can train and set you up or just do your bookkeeping for you. Your government obligations will be met. Your people paid. Done.


Tax Services

You don’t know when to lodge GST, VAT or tax returns. But we do. And we can help you with tax-effective structuring and expanding overseas.


R&D Tax

We can help you access government R&D tax benefits and even pre-finance expected refunds.


virtual CFO / FD

Not ready for your own CFO or FD? No worries. We can deliver regular reporting and advice, provide startup valuations and prepare you for capital raising.


We keep good company

We’re so serious about startups that it runs in the family. Our sister company, General Standards, is Australia’s leading startup focused law firm. Together, we can support all your startup accounting and legal needs.


You’re a startup – every cent counts, so you’ll always know what our services involve and how much they’ll cost. Our clients love this about us.


We’ve worked hard to set fair rates that scale as you grow. They reflect the work we do for you – nothing more, nothing less.

Automated billing

Monthly automatic billing with no lock-ins for our bookkeeping, accounting and virtual CFO services.

Pay on preparation

Our tax and advisory services are paid automatically when we deliver the work. Simple, fair and efficient.


Our experience suits yours

Our directors have experience in accounting firms, venture capital firms and at the coalface inside startups. That’s why Standard Ledger is dedicated to startups – we know what they need early on, as they grow rapidly and when to raise funding.
