Our Story

Harvest Accounting began as an idea shared over coffee between two friends and has now grown to a team of more than ten, spread over three countries.

Harvest was founded in 2018 with the intention of building a firm fully in the cloud from day one, to offer the most efficient, delightful, and collaborative accounting tech solutions available to all clients, and to create a flexible "work from anywhere" environment for its founders and eventually the team.

The firm was a finalist in the "Emerging Accounting Partner of the Year – Singapore" category at Xero Awards Asia 2019, and nominated for "Asia Partner of the Year" at Receipt Bank awards 2020.

In 2022 we proudly achieved Xero platinum partner status. A testament to our dedication and expertise to cloud accounting technology.

Harvest was the winner of "Medium Accounting Partner of the Year" at Xero Singapore Awards 2023.
