Accountant - Business Services & Taxation

Finance · Full-time · Mount Eliza, Australia

Oh hey there you awesome human!

Whew - what a year hey!?!?!

Super nice to almost see it in the rear-view mirror & here's hoping we can turn it around for each other!

At Illumin8 we love what we do & times like this require some kick-ass accounting ninja skills to help our business communities. We are on the hunt for someone who shares the love of the accounting & small business advisory space.

Someone that strikes fear into the heart of unbalanced accounts. That depreciation schedules have no match for. Spreadsheets quiver at the mention of your name. Someone that can automate the crap out of Xero to drive more time for the ‘fun’ side of accounting.

Someone that recognises that businesses are not just here to make profit, but have a greater purpose behind them for the business owners & their broader community. Someone who desires to work directly with their clients, supported by a great team of equally talented humans.

Well it might just be your lucky day friend.

**We are Illumin8, and we are Accounting for your tomorrow. ** This is an amazing opportunity to work with a bunch of award-winning and passionate people, who genuinely give a rats about their clients. At Illumin8, we think outside the box and have a heap of fun along the way. We understand that work is not life and encourage a healthy work-life balance. We embrace technology and run our business 100% from the cloud and help our clients to do the same.

**Yeah cool...blah blah marketing blah - but what are we looking for? ** We are going to love that you:

  • Have out of this world **communication **skills and are super efficient at what you do
  • Are somewhat **obsessive **about how small businesses operate, as well as their tax responsibilities
  • Have at least 2 years experience working in the small business taxation environment (That's preparing tax returns for multiple clients);
  • Know boring accounting stuff like what deductions can actually be claimed on a tax return (no… that holiday to the US to watch NBA is not work related);
  • Have **experience **processing financial reports and tax returns for all entity types and family groups from go to whoa
  • Have **Xero **in your blood. You gotta live it, breathe it, love it!;
  • Pride yourself on your kick-ass personality.
