Cloud accountants for SaaS and digital businesses

First Accounts was born out of the desire to guide SaaS founders and digital entrepreneurs. We want to ensure that your business succeeds – we do this by helping you raise finance, install robust business processes and stay compliant with the law.

Our Core Principles


Every relationship needs to be a good fit. We are very selective with who we work with and extend this philosophy to our clients – we only work with people who work with us.


We won’t be beaten on quality. Our fees represent an investment that adds value to your company and keeps it in business.


A core principle of ours is to strive to use the most up-to-date technology available. This makes our firm highly efficient and reduces our cost of service. Ultimately it means you are not overpaying for accounting services.

Why is compliance so important?
