About Our Business
Tina Kirwan is a Chartered Accountant and the founder of Running the Numbers.
Determined to create something different, the name “Running the Numbers” incorporates both Tina’s love for running and for numbers showing that behind every business (including accounting ones!) are real people with passions, goals and dreams.
It’s the people behind the businesses that we enjoy getting to know and working with.
For us, it is important to understand your goals and dreams so that we know what drives you and we can help you achieve these goals. It is equally important for you to have an accountant that you get along with so that you are comfortable calling them for advice, not matter how big or small.
At Running the Numbers we are here to take away the stress and worry that typically accompanies accounting, bookkeeping and tax concerns. We explain things in a way that you can understand – without all the jargon and acronyms!

My mum recently moved to the area and this morning I accompanied her during her appointment with Tina, her new accountant! Tina was so thorough, helpful, patient and I really felt mum wasn’t rushed but rather given quality time and treated with empathy. Thanks Tina, so glad we chose you to keep her numbers in check!!!

We moved into the area in 2017 and have trekked to the City to get out tax done every year. We recently were recommended to see Tina and were able to see her tonight after work and couldn't be happier. Tina was excellent, was very thorough and helpful in providing us with advice with her understanding of our affairs. Thanks Tina. So glad Janet and I discovered you and your Company.

My first experience with Running the Numbers was fantastic and Tina was very professional and understood our needs and requirements. After the initial meeting with Tina, some work was done on my previous year's tax return and Running the Numbers were able to turn my tax debt into a tax return. We will continue to use Running the Numbers for all of our accounting needs as they are professional, knowledgable and focus on delivering the best outcomes for their customers.

I was recommended to Tina by a couple of good friends and it is the best decision we made to use Tina as our accountant. Great knowledge, friendly and get the job done without any stress. We will be using her every year from now on. A+++

What a breath of accounting fresh air! Since moving our business to Tina at Running Numbers our tax returns & financial statements have been handled in a most timely, efficient and professional manner. For us Tina's use of e-technology greatly smooths and speeds the paper flow between Running Numbers and ourselves.

Tina provides a personal service that is second to none. I'm a small business and can rely on Tina to provide timely advice on things I would not have even thought about if I was trying to manage everything myself. Thanks for all your help in the past and in the future - as I wouldn't consider going anywhere else!

Tina is AMAZING. First year working as a sole trader (I know nothing about this stuff) and I had encountered many accountants that made me feel overwhelmed and over complicated everything. Tina got straight to the point and got my tax return done so quickly. I am so thankful to have booked in with her and would recommend to everyone in the area!

I hate changing accountants but Tina it made it so easy. Efficient, proactive, timely, very responsive, and affordable. Got a much better result than I was expecting! Thank you Tina and look forward to working with you more

Running the Numbers have been an absolute delight to work with. Tina and her associate Leonie, helped me setup and register my first company. It was such an efficient process and they made it so damn easy for a dummy like me. They are incredibly helpful and they have answered all of my questions, but in a way that I can actually understand and have learnt from. I am so glad to have RTN batting for me, it really helps me to rest easy knowing that I have a team of experts onside. Honestly, I couldn't recommend Running the Numbers any more, I don't for a second believe that 5 stars is a high enough rating. Thank you Tina, and thank you Leonie. I am incredibly happy with your accounting services and I just feel blessed to have you on my team.

I’m so fortunate to have found Tina, she is a true gem: knowledgeable, helpful, efficient and friendly. An added bonus is that she can work remotely and online instead of in-person only. I enthusiastically recommend Tina to anyone looking for a new accountant.

Tina was very professional and thorough when working with me. The process was super easy and convenient doing it via email and online - living almost an hour away it was great that Tina could work with me this way. She was thorough when asking questions which definitely showed that Tina wanted to get the best outcome for me. She also provided me with useful advice being a beginner sole trader and is so supportive! Definitely recommend Running the numbers!! Thanks Tina!
