Our Story


We’re more than just Chartered Accountants in Perth (‘though we’re that, too!) We take a flexible, experienced approach to accounting and bookkeeping to keep your input as minimal as possible. Our main purpose is to simplify the trickiest parts of your start up accounting, personal bookkeeping or business tax problems so that you will be able to focus on what’s most important, while being confident that you’ll pay the least tax possible.

In addition, if you need education, advice, or to gain some financial literacy, we want to hear from you.

Our team has a bit of an appetite for empowering small business people to handle their numbers, so that you can use your understanding to make better, more informed financial decisions.

At Simple Solutions, we empower business owners to implement affordable, time efficient and effective accounting solutions that provide the tools to allow business owners to focus on operating their business, yet having the ability to make real-time financial decisions.

We can teach you how to run the numbers, so the numbers don’t run you.

Sarah Peckham

Sarah Peckham


Highly ethical and professional, Sarah solves accounting system set ups to ensure efficient and effective financial record keeping with minimal input from the business owner – which allows the business owner to focus on what is important: their business!

With a background in banking and auditing, Sarah has exact attention to detail, balances to the cent, and ensures all beans are counted correctly.

When she’s not pouring over numbers, Sarah is a mother of two very busy boys, involved on many committees , reads vicariously (especially a good “boy adores girl” story), is a keen movie buff, sewing fiend, and part time portable IT help desk (her superpower is she can find the answer to anything on Google!).
