Our broad range of services will ensure your organisation is fully compliant, fully informed and financially sustainable.

Meet our Founding Director: Andrea Petersen

I started nfpas in 1999, after my experiences working for an NGO for three years. At the time I found finance professionals working in the nfp sector could feel quite isolated and were in need of accounting advice that wasn’t readily available. This inspired me to establish an accounting firm that specialised in the nfp sector.

Over the last 15 years, nfpas has grown from a one-person consultancy to a small business employing a team of professionals  who share my passion for the work of the nfp sector.

My personal mission is to help ensure the longevity and success of the sector by contributing to its sustainability and ongoing innovation and development. Our “Shaking The Tree” Conference, run by nfpas, is an initiative we began in 2009 and brings together some of the nfp sector’s most highly experienced and credentialed experts.

We have also created the nfphub – a community for finance professionals and senior executives working in the nfp sector to network, share ideas, problem solve and make connections with other professionals  working in the nfp sector.

Qualifications: – FCA – Bachelor of Arts (Accounting) – Graduate Diploma (Accounting) – Master of Arts (Accounting), University of South Australia.
