We’ve been fortunate enough to present several cheques on behalf of the Count Charitable Foundation to some well deserving charities this year. The Foothills Foundation is a not for profit organisation that fundraises thousands of dollars annually, improving the lives of disadvantaged people in the community.
We also presented a cheque to Safe Futures Foundation, one of the largest specialist providers of family violence crisis accommodation and refuge responses in Victoria.
The Hayes Girling team also made a generous donation from our weekly Casual Friday for a Cause to Fight MND. We were delighted to learn that Count Charitable Foundation offered to match our donation.
We hope that the money raised for all the mentioned charities will help in some way to the great work each of them do.
Benefits of migrating to Xero
Xero is a cloud-based accounting software that is a must have for all businesses. This simple to use software will assist you in running your business at high efficiency and takes out the stress out of everyday tasks. Here what our client, Jean Rode had to say about the software;
I recently converted to Xero with the help of Hayes Girling Financial. After 9 years using the same accounting program, I was rather reluctant to change, but the promise of saved time within the book keeping process was too good to pass up. The staff at Hayes Girling Financial converted my extensive file so it was up to date and ready to use in Xero, and they went above and beyond to ensure the changeover was as smooth as possible. Only a very small amount of training was needed to get up and running as Xero is very user friendly. Thus far, I can clearly see that the promise of saved time was true, from live bank feeds to instant super payments, Xero has it all.’

Are you thinking about purchasing a new car but not sure where to start with finance?
We've been assisting clients to obtain competitive rates for their car loans. A car dealer recently contacted us offering one of our clients’ finance for a monthly fee of $534, however, we were able to find a comparison for the same 5-year term and same balloon amount for a $435 per month, that's a saving of $5,940 over the term of the loan.
