Meet the Team
Susan Hart has over 20 years’ experience in the accounting industry and is passionate about helping business owners get their bookkeeping under control.
After starting her career in an accounting firm, she took on a finance operations role at the Newcastle Business Enterprise Centre where she further developed her commercial acumen. Encouraged by her experience during a professional business mentor program, Sue was inspired to start her own bookkeeping business. Synergy Bookkeeping has since grown to service about 70 clients and employs a team of qualified and dedicated bookkeepers.
Susan is also co-founder and director of Uniting Bookkeepers, a professional network organisation that educates, supports and connects its members and the businesses they serve.
She holds a Diploma of Accounting, Frontline Management Cert IV and is a Justice of the Peace.
Susan’s other passions include her husband and business partner, Jason (see below), travelling, animal rights and welfare, women’s health issues, musical theatre, yoga, reading and listening to all things that nurture and enrich her spirit.
Jason has been with Synergy since they started the business late in the last century. Before that, he worked for an Egyptian pharaoh as an assistant clay-tablet keeper. Highly skilled with an abacus he moved swiftly through the ranks. One of his proudest moments was being part of the financial team on a big pyramid project – the largest capital works project of its time.“We were ahead of budget at the end of the 30 year project and my team never lost a single enormous block, ” says Jason.
In this lifetime, Jason’s experience covers owning and managing a small business, along with finance officer and assistant accountant roles with a number of firms. He shared his business knowledge with others during his time as a mentor and finance officer with the Business Enterprise Centre.
Jason holds a Diploma of Accounting and is excited and renewed by the innovative technology that continues to advance and improve bookkeeping and business management. Jason is committed to finding the best-fit software and apps to help clients improve their operational systems and bottom-line profitability.
He loves nothing better than to help guide owners to develop their own business management skills and abilities.
Susan has worked for Synergy Bookkeeping for over 17 years. Previously working for an accounting firm, Sue enjoys getting into the nitty gritty of her client’s work. Her specialty is problem solving and ensuring that every compliance issue is sorted when it comes to end of year wrap up and quarterly activity statements.
Susan loves new clients. The prospect of getting a big box of receipts really excites her (true story!) and now she can send it all to Receipt Bank and watch the magic happen automatically. Susan is a born bookkeeper and has been in the industry for more than 30 years.
Susan’s specialty areas include attention to detail, patience and a desire to leave things better than when she found them.
Sutapa is an enthusiastic and hardworking bookkeeper, currently expanding her experience in the accounting field. Sutapa accepted an opportunity to train under Susan Hart to learn the many aspects of processing client’s bills using cloud accounting software and brings enthusiasm, fast and reliable skills to the Synergy team.
Based in Calcutta, India, she works side by side with Susan via Skype, email and phone. Her main role is working with back log management clients and Synergy’s ‘shake n bake‘ service that requires hundreds of dockets and tax invoices to be monitored via receipt bank and matched-to-bank feeds.
Sutapa holds a Bachelor Degree in Science and a Diploma in Computer Programming. She has previously worked in the development of software packages specifically for the accounting sector.
