Called “A Little Love Song”, and developed alongside Australian entertainer Sam “Sam Mac” McMillan, the original music track pays homage to accountants across the country while aiming to bring some light relief to the reporting period after the end of the most difficult year-end in a long time.
Xero managing director of Australia and Asia Trent Innes said accountants and bookkeepers have been working day and night to stay ahead of new requirements so they can support small businesses throughout the end of the financial year.
“In the midst of adversity, we’re hearing stories of accountants and bookkeepers saving the day for many small businesses, offering much-needed guidance — such as unpacking the requirements for packages like JobKeeper — or simply providing a shoulder to lean on,” Mr Innes said.
“Our aim is to put a spotlight on the critical work done by advisers in support of small business, the backbone of the economy. We hope this song goes some way in recognising Australia’s often unsung heroes.”
Sam Mac said he was excited to get on board to have some fun and create this song with Xero to show some appreciation for these hard-working Aussies.
“It’s been a taxing year,” he said.
“It’s my pleasure to present the greatest love song ever written in dedication to bookkeepers and accountants. Admittedly, it’s the only one, but technically, it’s also the greatest. So, let’s run with that.”
