About Reckon

The year was 1987. While the rest of Australia permed their hair, listened to Wham! and waited for hoverboards, Greg Wilkinson started an accounting software company. One man, one maxed-out credit card and one loan against a busted-up Holden Commodore.

Those were the humble beginnings of Reckon.

Today, we’re one of Australia’s leading business technology providers, listed on the ASX and employing 300 talented folk all over the world.

Over the last 30 years, we’ve seen and lodged it all. Floppy disks. The first computer spreadsheet. Fax machines and the rise of online accounting. We were there for GST and Single Touch Payroll. We tallied receipts on dial-up and explored the new world of Open Banking.

It’s been a wild ride. But through it all, Reckon has always helped businesses manage change – the expected and the unexpected. That’s our mission. Whatever happens next, whatever the future holds, we’ve got your business’s back.
