Since leaving Xero in 2016, Donnie Buchannan has been successfully helping firms migrate to Xero. Eventually, he launched Entry Counts, as he believes that "each entry counts" in every financial or operating system. Entry Counts specialises in the design, build and training of Xero's report templates and financial statements.
In an industry with a lot of moving parts, it is easy to try and be all things to all people. At Clarity Street, we have a clear line between what we are good at and what we are experts in. When we are not the expert, we partner with someone who is. Donnie is that expert when it comes to setting up Xero Reports and Financial Statements.

Almost weekly we are asked, when is the best time to change your internal business infrastructure and why. These questions come from two perspectives: either because you want to or because you have to, it’s simple really. If you want to, it shows your staff and your clients that you are trying to keep up with what’s happening both inside your industry and with business in general. If it’s because you have to, it means that you try to avoid life’s constant – change, and you are likely to have systems, processes and staff that are tired and worn out.
At Clarity Street, we strive for a best practice approach to practice management and as such, we do our best to keep up to date with all the latest applications, adjusting our App Stack accordingly.
Our latest App Stack comes with a few additions of new applications and new services that can help improve the operations and effectiveness of your practice.

― P.G. Wodehouse, Jeeves in the Morning
Whether you are a PG Wodehouse fan or not, you will have heard the name of his famous character - Jeeves. Jeeves is the quintessential butler whose presence ensures that things just happen, almost like magic. Jeeves makes sure that everything is running smoothly and that things are there when we need them. He supports you, when you need support and sends you on your merry way when you have things to do. We all need a Jeeves in our lives, someone whose presence is felt almost through their absence. Don’t you think so?
