Tanda is MYOB’s Fastest Growing Add-on of 2016
Tanda was just named MYOB’s Fastest Growing Add-On of the Year for 2016. This is the first time the award has been conferred and is the first of its kind in Australia, marking an incredible milestone and achievement for Tanda.
When I first joined Tanda in 2013, we were just a small team in a very small office. In the three years since, Tanda has gone from strength to strength, growing ten-fold, to a team of over 40. It’s been an incredible journey and it feels like we’re only just getting started.
Employing people is much harder than it should be. By making it easier to be an employer, we are able to very quickly deliver value to our customers – as a result, we’ve seen phenomenal growth over the past 3 years. We are committed to solving the hard problems that businesses struggle with everyday, assisting them to focus on what’s actually important – improving their business.
We wouldn’t be where we are today without our partnership with MYOB. The rise of the cloud computing is giving business owners more and more options to connect the best software solutions together. Connected software is the future and we are incredibly grateful to have a partner that appreciates this.
We are excited about what we’ve been able to achieve with MYOB. Together, we’ve slashed thousands of hours every week of manual payroll processing time so payroll people and business owners can focus on something more productive.
Today we are very excited to be a market leader, but we’re only just starting out in our journey, and are very excited to see what comes next.
Thank you for joining us on this journey, MYOB. We love your work.

Are you an ‘Uber Accountant’?
Gus Balbontin, Former Executive Director and CTO of Lonely Planet, opened MYOB Incite 2017 by posing the idea that there are two types of accountants. The first, and most successful accountant, embraces change. When customers move in a different direction, they are already two steps ahead and ready to capitalise. These accountants are the ‘Ubers’ of accounting. The second type of accountant, are resisters. They want to concrete things over and lock in their way of doing things. When the customer goes a different direction, they blame the customer and call for a ban on the new way of doing things. These are your ‘Taxi Industry’ accountants. With the rise of technology taking over many of the basic tasks of accounting firms, accountants are being forced to accept that the majority of their growth will come from providing higher order advisory services. Accountants who have already automated their basic tasks are able to spend their time with clients, providing higher order services that deliver real value. In an era where the amount of process based tasks they can bill for is rapidly decreasing, it is these ‘Uber accountants’ who are scaling their client base and offerings. My takeaway from discussing payroll with hundreds of accountants over three weeks while on the road, is that business owners turn to their accountants as their sole source of business advice, and in most cases this doesn’t just end at their finances. Accountants who offer payroll services constantly find themselves fielding industrial relations questions and interpreting Award conditions for their clients. With the average Australian Modern Award having between 180-200 different pay conditions, it’s easy to understand why clients are keen to outsource the process to a professional. The line between the Uber and Taxi Industry accountants in payroll processing is becoming undeniably clear. While the ‘Taxi Industry approach’ to payroll has remained stagnant and stuck in billable payroll hours, the ‘Uber approach’ has thrived as accountants seek to embrace the new role they play in a client’s success. The ‘Uber approach’ to payroll processing lies in automation, as accountants can bill for providing payroll advice and support, rather than just shuffling timesheets and paperwork.
