Meet Karan

I’ve been at Inspire for 1 year and so far I’ve experienced explosive growth, both personally and professionally. It’s been one of the greatest learning experiences of my life and I’ve had the liberty to freely build a professional network with the clients. I am grateful to have found a workplace with Accountants that are proactive, rather than reactive, and that are always ahead of the game.

I am passionate about helping small businesses grow, helping them realise their financial goals, navigating the twists and turns of the economy, deep diving through tax law which can help a client make their business tax efficient, or piece the tax puzzle together for our clients; these types of moments are what I find truly fulfilling.

Currently, I am living with my family. I’ve enjoyed every part of the experience so far and can confidently say that my sister-in-law’s cooking is Gordon Ramsay material. Everyone at Inspire can vouch for how delicious her food is, I love it. For my past times, you can find me binging web series – my favourites being Billions, and Suits.

I also thoroughly enjoy hiking with loved ones for some physical activity. An unorthodox interest of mine is staying on top of global financial news as I have a passion for financial markets, cryptocurrency and block chain technology.

What is your favourite thing about working at Inspire?

I can see an ocean of opportunity in everything that we do. In my brief time here, I have witnessed our team constantly expand and we’ve also recently taken on our talented virtual assistant Althea from the Philippines. You could say that our mindset here is to start local, think global; which I feel very passionate about.

How did you get interested in accounting?

I’ve always taken interest in maths and I’d say that numbers drove me to accounting. Coming from a family with deep generational roots in business, their exposure to me further fuelled my passion towards accounting as accounting is the language of business.

What is one of the biggest impacts you’ve made?

The biggest impact I’ve made at Inspire I’d say is when I helped a client that was struggling financially. I had put forth a case in front of the ATO and was met with objections for about a year before we were able to acquire a cashflow boost. The client was then pulled out of debt and they’d say that the lifeboat I threw to them was life changing.

What are some book you recommend?

I’d highly recommend Robert Zemeckis’ ‘Forrest Gump’ as well as ‘ The Pursuit of Happyness’ by Gabriele Muccino. Both movies of which I heavily relate to and see a little bit of myself in the protagonists.

Which Sustainable Development Goal(s) do you choose and why?

I’d have to choose Quality education. I feel that education will solve all the 16 other sustainable development goals.

I’ve been working at Inspire since July 2022 as an accountant, and I’ve been given a ton of exciting responsibilities to manage. My day-to-day includes offshoring jobs, finalizing and reviewing financial statements, providing QA and bass reviews assistance, tax planning, and even supporting Karan with email preparation. As you can see, my role is pretty diverse!

My journey has had its fair share of highs and lows. I’ve learned a lot, implemented those learnings into my daily routine, and then discovered new knowledge once again, resulting in a fluctuating pattern of progress. Throughout this journey, I have also acquired skills in time management and prioritisation.

Among my responsibilities, I find tax planning to be the most fulfilling. It allows me to apply numerous strategies to assist clients in reducing their tax burden. Furthermore, we utilise the saved funds to alleviate clients’ debts, which brings them peace of mind. Helping clients achieve peace of mind with their tax concerns is my favourite aspect of the job.

Outside of Inspire

I enjoy being outdoors and consider myself to be somewhat adventurous. Going on hikes, walks, and exploring new places are some of my favourite activities. However, what’s most important to me is spending time with my family.

How did you get interested in accounting?

From a young age, I was exposed to the business world as my father owned a business in Fiji. I would observe him conducting client meetings, providing services, and managing accounts and bookkeeping, among other things. This early exposure to the industry ignited my passion for business and I have remained interested in it ever since.

What is your favourite thing about working at inspire?

One aspect of working at Inspire that I particularly enjoy is the emphasis on team bonding. We engage in various team bonding activities, such as team breakfasts, quarterly retreats, and celebrating birthdays. As a result, we have developed close relationships and have become like a family. 

Another thing that I appreciate at Inspire is the opportunity to assist clients in saving on their taxes. Learning how to implement tax-saving strategies is rewarding and beneficial for our clients. 

Additionally, there is a fast-paced learning environment that provides exposure to various areas, allowing for extensive growth in multiple directions. This constant learning makes working at Inspire a valuable experience in the long run.

What is one of the biggest impacts you’ve made?

The focus of my role has been on client management and support. I have been helping Karan manage his workload by taking on responsibility for approximately 22 clients while dealing with his workload of 50. This has allowed us to provide better support and quicker response times to our clients. My aim is to be more attentive and responsive to their needs, ensuring a higher level of customer service overall.

What are some books/podcast/documentaries you recommend?

While I may jokingly say “my CA books,” I actually enjoy listening to podcasts. Specifically, I’m fond of crime-related ones. In the past, I used to watch a lot of crime documentaries as well.

Which Sustainable Development Goal(s) do you choose and why?

Good Health & Well-being – Under the theme of Good Health & Well-being, my goal would be to prioritise employee well-being. It’s easy to forget to take care of ourselves, especially during busy seasons where lunch and bathroom breaks can be overlooked. It’s important to promote individual well-being and encourage employees to take care of themselves, even while working hard.

Quality education is critical, especially in our field. Staying up-to-date and continuously learning is crucial to ensure that we don’t fall behind. It’s essential to study and be on top of everything as it can make a significant difference.
