Having worked in the accounting, corporate and in local government sectors for several years, I was looking for a new challenge and founded James Burn & Associates in July 2013. I am determined to help other small businesses understand their numbers and save them time and money. James Burn & Associates was one of the first accounting firms back in 2013 to use Xero as our main accounting platform having previously used MYOB hence are well versed in anything Xero whilst providing high-quality analysis using Spotlight reporting.
