Our Services

Management Accounting Systems

Budgeting, forecasting, cashflow and financial reporting isn’t everyone’s passion – but it is ours!  We can set up financial reports that are important tools to help you with financial decisions, planning, and evaluating your business performance.  

Bookkeeping Services

Accurate record-keeping is essential to a successful business, but it can be complex, time consuming and some describe it as boring as listening to Celine Dion on repeat shuffle. We can take the stress out of your day-to-day bookkeeping tasks and take care of all the numbers, so you are free to focus on your core business.

Xero & Quickbooks

Xero and QuickBooks can provide terrific information using financial statements, reports and graphs. But it’s only useful if you purchase the right product and use it properly. We don’t just help you purchase the software – we help you use it more efficiently.  We can install, setup, train you personally, as well as provide ongoing support. At Calculated Matters we LOVE Xero and Quickbooks – but if you are a MYOB fan, we promise not to hold that against you.

External CFO

Not everyone needs a full time CFO, but it makes sense to have strong financial input at the leadership level. Our external CFO service offers your business a results driven finance team as a cost-effective alternative.  This service allows you to tap into a wealth of knowledge and experience from creative industry financial experts as and when you require. As far as we can tell, it’s a #winwin.


Our straightforward income tax advice achieves the best possible tax outcome for you and your business. Our Principal, Jacinta O’Connell, is one of Australia’s leading music industry tax experts and if there is a new tax law (or deduction) Jacinta will be all over it.

We are tax-savvy, can navigate the maze of tax laws, and make sense of all your statements and receipts. We are also happy to help answer any questions the ATO may ask you.

When it comes to tax time, we work with individuals, sole traders, companies, partnerships, trusts and not-for-profits. In short, everyone.

Business Coaching & Consulting

We know it’s not an easy gig making a living as a full-time musician or creative artist.  Our Principal, Jacinta O’Connell, is a strategist and business growth development specialist with expertise in the music, media and entertainment industries.

She provides a caring and first-rate service and will help you identify areas for change, improvement and general recommendations to ensure you and your business move forward.  And if you have any doubts about Jacinta’s wise counsel, check out what our clients have to say on our testimonials page.
