The Access Group ("Access") today announced that it has acquired ChangeGPS, an award-winning compliance and advisory software company providing innovative tax planning and compliance- specific tools, plans, templates and resources for accounting firms.

Founded in 2016, Australian-based ChangeGPS was awarded the Xero Practice App of the Year in 2022 for its frontline accounting software to support Australia’s 14,000 accounting firms to help drive profitable growth for both their firms and their clients.

The combination of ChangeGPS software with Access’ leading Accounting Tech assets including APS, Fathom, Handisoft and Elite will enable Access customers to maximise their and their clients’ potential with a streamlined suite of accounting tools.

Kerry Agiasotis, President of The Access Group Asia Pacific commented: "I am excited to welcome ChangeGPS’ employees, customers and partners to The Access Group, which we see as further strengthening our proposition to Accounting firms.”

“The acquisition of ChangeGPS is another step towards realising our vision of advancing the capabilities of accounting firms in Australia and New Zealand to help them drive profitable and sustainable growth for their firms and clients.”

“ChangeGPS marks the fourth acquisition of ANZ based Accounting Technology companies in the last 3 years, reinforcing our commitment towards helping accounting firms maximise growth opportunities presented by new technologies. We are passionate in our belief that a strong accounting industry is key to the success of SME businesses, which are the backbone of our economy. Our broad range of offerings for accounting firms are enabling them to both lower costs from productivity gains and increase income through new value-added advisory services that help their clients’ business grow,” said Agiasotis.

David Boyar, ChangeGPS CEO added: “With The Access Group behind us, our growth and passion for delivering to Accountants and the Mums and Dads of Australia will be supercharged. It's the start of an exciting new era for ChangeGPS, our members, and team, and it opens up the potential for new integrations and product opportunities and prepares us to take the opportunities of the future."

Timothy Munro, ChangeGPS Founder will continue to work on new ideas and products for ChangeGPS. Munro commented “We have some amazing new apps for Accountants in the ChangeGPS pipeline, and now being part of The Access Group allows us to help even more accountants to help their clients to have more freedom and live a better life.”
