NO SYSTEMS, NO STRUCTURE, NO PREMSIES? WITH XERO, NO WORRIES!
Brendan was a talented, budding hairdresser who was renting a chair in a salon when he met Sian from Ease. He had no accounting systems in place, no idea about tax or how he could expand and harness his skills and turn them into a successful business.
Fast forward two and a half years using cloud-based software like Shortcuts (a salon software tool), Xero and some astute advice and input from Ease, Brendan now operates a very busy salon that employs four staff and has outgrown his current premises and so is looking to expand.
Turnover has exploded to a point where it has now grown 500% from the point where he was first working for himself, with this upward trend showing no sign of slowing.
With the assistance and advice of the team at Ease, he is now also in the process of moving from being a sole trader to a company structure for tax effectiveness and to protect his growing asset.
Brendan now meets quarterly with the Ease team to go through management reports generated by Xero and discuss future strategies to enhance his burgeoning business.
