As a national award winning Business Development Manager, entrepreneur and finance professional, Nathan Kerr’s difference comes from his desire to create fuss-free financial products and services for everyone.
Nathan sits on a number of ATO national councils including the Practitioner Lodgement Services Working Group, the Tax Profession Digital Implementation Group, and the Tax Practitioner Stewardship Group & BAS Agent Association Group.
Nathan’s passion for Business Development has seen him awarded Money Management Business Development Manager of the Year in 2011 and 2012. And after working in banking and finance for over 10 years, Nathan cut his own path, starting up ‘Just FSG’ in 2012 with a single idea; to create a fuss-free accounting practice which provided quality service at an affordable price.
He started the business under the Pop Up Tax Shop and Just FSG trading names from a small base in WA and grew it to a national presence lodging in excess of 15,000 individual Tax Returns a year and managing over 80 accountants.
In December 2014 Nathan exited Just FSG and Pop Up Tax Shop to establish the One Click Life brand.
With a vision of “Innovate or die” Nathan has been able to work with the ATO to create the ultimate fuss-free accounting solutions and has been awarded 4 patents for straight through processing of Tax Returns. In October 2019 proof of concept was established with the successful lodgement of data between One Click software and the ATO.
