Who are we?
Great question, dear reader. We are a Brisbane based Chartered Account firm located on the cities doorstep. XERO is our bread and butter and we are very good at it. We have been XERO partners since 2010 when the software was just starting to make it’s way onto the scene. We've watched as everybody else jumped on board with us over the years and watched their businesses flourish! Originally, we were known as Rush & Associates but in 2016 we decided it was time for an upgrade, so we moved away from Kelvin Groves hot spot (The Normanby Hotel) and re-branded to RA Business Advisors.
Get to know us!
We aren't the conventional pencil-pusher accountants you see advertised on TV. Instead, we take a widely different approach. We are focused and committed to providing personalised services to all our clients. Our wonderful team can assist with everything from taxation obligations to providing personalised business advice. The best part is we don't even have to do it face to face! That's why all us here at RA Business Advisors love XERO.
