What people are saying

I have been, without a doubt, happy since day one of joining as a First Class Accounts franchisee. I continue to be after 8.5 years. The head office team are always available, always positive and always provide options and or a solution.

Franchisee, Glenelg, SA

I’ve worked with other franchises in the past, but I’ve never experienced anything as supportive as First Class Accounts. It really does feel like a big family in many ways. It has been amazing and so much more than I expected!

NIKKI DOUGLAS

Franchisee, Canberra Central, ACT

I have most enjoyed looking at the positive impact that we are making for other small business owners, helping them to grow and succeed. They are willing to refer others to us and we are often the first people that they call well ahead of their accountants.
