FNL Member Profile – Sue McPherson – ilumin


We view our role as being so much more than just tax and compliance accounting. Yes, that’s important, but the really important bit (and the stuff we love) is understanding where your business is now, where it wants to be, and tackling that important bit in between with clarity, confidence and communication.

We work a little differently than traditional accountancy firms. Through our monthly service packages we provide the accounting and advisory services your business needs, when it needs it. And we don’t just talk to you once a year; we regularly talk business and chew the fat. If one of our packages doesn’t suit you, there are other options we can talk about.

We see ourselves as your behind-the-scenes accounting partner – shining a light on how to grow your financial success and how to harness your vision – giving you more time and confidence to get on with business.

We’ve been serving the business community in the greater Wellington region for over 25 years. Formerly known as Millar & Miller, ilumin was launched in 2013.
