What are the Anthill Cool Company Awards?
The Cool Company Awards were launched in 2006 as a way for Anthill to acknowledge and celebrate Australian organisations that are doing things differently to bring about positive change. Cool Companies stay one step ahead of the rest. They breed leaders who are rule-makers and rule-breakers. They are trend-setters in attitude and action. Quite simply, they are … cool! More.

What if your young family could use its small business to achieve bigger goals?
That was the question Inspire CA founder Ben Walker asked himself, at the tender age of just 23.
Then, with a printer (that he borrowed) and a very basic idea, he launched Inspire CA to help people write a better financial future for their businesses, families and the world at large.
When it comes to accounting, according to Ben, most old-school practitioners “charge by the hour for their re-active, stuck-in-the-past advice.” Inspire CA attempts to address the common accounting problems from a different mindset.
Sure, it helps its clients save money, increase their profits and accelerate their cash flow. But the purpose is to allow families to invest in more time together.
In the words of Ben, “Our clients would say that saving them on average $27,416 in tax each this last year is pretty cool… But, if you think it’s just about Tax & Accounting, I’d encourage you to think again. We live in a world where 1 in 2 businesses fail and 3 in 4 marriages end in divorce.”
“Being family people what we think is cool, is our impact — the ability to take conversations around the family dinner table from ‘How will we pay for the rego that is due next week?!’ to ‘Where will we be going for our next family holiday!’”
Earlier this year, the Inspire CA team set itself a BHAG… a Big Hairy Audacious Goal… to save its clients $500,000 tax in 12 weeks. The organisation ended up and saving its clients a whopping $1.26 million in tax!
As often as possible, when any member of Inspire CA team helps a client save on their tax, they film a ‘Facebook LIVE – Celebration Video’.
Furthermore, 100% of the business is cloud based. Meaning no servers, no IT guys, no boring desktop software. It’s literally accounting at your fingertips. These guys are crunching numbers and having a crushing impact. That’s why Inspire CA is one of our 2016 Cool Company finalists.
