About Us

Helping you work smarter, not harder, so you can focus on what really matters

Orbit Accounts was founded by Marisa Punshon in 2011. We help streamline businesses’ financial processes by providing bookkeeping services as well as Xero accounting software set-up, conversion, training, and support. We help businesses of all sizes keep their finances under control in a simple, cost-effective way.
