AstraFin’s Founder, Derrick Loo, started his accounting business with a hope of making a more meaningful impact – helping small business owners to succeed. This is a familiar role, which he enjoyed during his period of articles. It is now with the addition of commercial experience gained in finance, compliance and operations after an extensive corporate career.

When you choose an accountant you’re entrusting them to look after your business in the area that they are expert in AND to give you objective advice. Part of this is to first understand your needs, your pain points and your opportunities (so that we get you). We then discuss and agree the right fit of professional accounting services for your business. It is also important for us to empower you. Wouldn’t it be better to rather spend time discussing topics that matter in your business? New generation online cloud accounting software allow us to do this and also for us to deliver our services to you more effectively.

Let us be your Finance Business Partner in your successful business.
