First Class Accounts – Canberra Central is owned and operated by Nikki Douglass. With over 20 years of experience, the team at First Class Accounts – Canberra Central is the perfect choice to help your business.

With a background in Senior Finance Officer roles, working for a range of local and international corporations, Nikki realised that her passion was helping small business to prosper and grow, so she decided to join Australia’s biggest network of bookkeepers and opened First Class Accounts – Canberra Central.

“I started my own bookkeeping business as I believe that all businesses deserve the experience and knowledge someone like me can bring them, but for many businesses, a full-time Finance Staff member is not an affordable or a practical option.”

Backed with extensive and ongoing training, First Class Accounts – Canberra Central can deliver customised support to your business!
