We understand the needs of modern business and we know what it takes to be successful in it.
That’s why we consider both your critical success factors – your numbers and your people.
Our solutions are designed to maximise your performance, improve your
processes and deliver data you can trust.

We love to work with businesses who want to improve profitability, increase employee productivity, value strategic advice
and want to outsource their finance, payroll and hr tasks.

Lucent has really taken the pain out of doing my quarterly BAS statements. While friends are losing sleep and hair, my reporting is complete in just minutes.

Having now worked with Rachael Turner and her excellent team at lucent financial for many years, I can attest to the high quality service they continue to provide our business.

In addition to regular face-to-face business review meetings with Rachael, ours is largely a virtual relationship where book-keeping and general accounting needs are serviced remotely. lucent financial team members are available for advice and support as needed by phone and more and more by email. High quality management reports are generated monthly for regular review with a senior member of the lucent team. The service is provided on a fixed annual fee which provides for budgeting certainty.

After implementing ReceiptBank & ApprovalMax, our day to day data entry is almost non-existent. We get a daily log to approve, which includes actual invoices & accounts. Batch payments are logged in to our cloud based accounting system (Xero). Then sent direct to our online banking for payment with 1 push of a button. We now have more time to focus on our work.

I have been working with lucent financial (formerly MYBC) for over 4 years and after experiencing their professionalism and expertise with my personal accounts I moved my business affairs over also.

With a team that is available, approachable and professional they now take care of my business bookkeeping, accounting and taxation needs. I find that lucent financial will work with their clients to achieve the results they need to make timely business decisions, even if it means that they customise your reporting needs to suit your style. I have referred several people to join as lucent financial clients who are now grateful to finally find a financial team that cares. I recommend them for all accounting services no matter how big or small.
