Nova is an integrated accounting and bookkeeping practice. Our goal is to provide a total financial solution for local businesses to reduce their bookkeeping burden and deliver a powerful business enhancing experience.
Our story began in January 2003 when Nova Bookkeeping was established as a simple yet specialist bookkeeping solution for small businesses. Our founder Dale Wyatt believes strongly in personal service and plenty of face-to-face meetings to continually enhance clients’ business growth. Soon Nova Bookkeeping grew to encompass client businesses of all sizes and types from Carrum Downs, Frankston, Mornington Peninsula and surrounding suburbs. We also have a sound client pool from the Melbourne metropolitan area too.
Right from the start, our Nova team was driven by outcomes. As financial specialists Dale and the team recognised how complementary expert bookkeeping and financial solutions are. Building on our ambition to deliver a full business financial services hub, we added an accounting arm to our business.
Although the Nova solution has grown to encompass Nova Accounting and Nova Bookkeeping, our values remain the same. Yes, we deliver bookkeeping brilliance and a wealth of certified practicing accountant expertise. Yet our local focus, individualised service, tailored solutions and regular in-person connections with clients are service mainstays.
Today, Nova is an end-to-end business financial services hub that takes pride in absolute service excellence.
