Welcome to Novabook.

We help startups manage their finances and make smarter decisions.

About us

We bring decades of experience as accountants, software engineers, and startup founders – a unique mix you can't find anywhere else.

We’re a team of accountants and financial experts. But that's not all. We’ve built a tech startup with 12 million users and a successful exit in 2022. We’re founders and operators at heart. Whether you’re starting, raising, scaling, or planning to exit your business, we have experience at every step.

We believe that as an owner, you shouldn’t need a degree in accounting to do your taxes. Nor should you have to chase your accountant for answers or feedback on your business. Most owners want the best value for bookkeeping and proactive feedback to stay tax-efficient. That’s what we set out to deliver.

A lot of the bookkeeping and accounting work is predictable. Yet, you can end up paying significant fees for repetitive manual bookkeeping work. We believe in automating many accounting processes to lower your expenses and provide quicker, up-to-date financial insight.
