Ilse Simis from Graef and Bert Evans from Groep Arthur have found a good ground for collaboration - cloud accounting.
Accountants and entrepreneurs are each other's sounding boards
What is most important, according to Graef, is the cooperation with their entrepreneurs. They want to achieve this by using digital tools. One of the biggest advantages of Yuki according to them? That the processing is much smoother and faster. So no peaks during a VAT period or closing. This way, Graef has more time for proactive advice and they create added value for the customer. In short, thanks to Yuki they can apply the principle of accountancy as a service. After 6 years, Graef is still just as enthusiastic about Yuki.
“One of the biggest advantages of Yuki is that processing is much smoother and faster… We no longer have peaks in workload during a VAT period or closure."
One of the many entrepreneurs with whom Graef has a unique collaboration is Groep Arthur. Groep Arthur is an event agency from Antwerp that converts communication strategy into an experience. They ended up with Yuki through their accountant and in the meantime, they are each other's customers. Graef helps with the administrative management of Groep Arthur and Groep Arthur helps organize corporate events, such as the opening of the new Graef office. This creates a unique bond.
Accountants and entrepreneurs share the same vision. Bert Evens of Groep Arthur is also convinced that Yuki mainly saves them time. “We are less busy with our administration and have more time with the things we love.” His tip for other entrepreneurs is that you should invest as much time as possible in your product and leave administration to the experts and the tools.

The secret weapon of accounting firm Graef
Graef comes out as a top modern accounting firm. And they are. They are real digital believers. They are all enterprising accountants who see the innovative way of accounting as a priority. How did they get to this point? Innovative accounting was a switch in their mindset.
The start with Yuki also requires a new way of working. Ilse Simis believes that you should be open to working differently. Once you've passed that, you don't want to go back and it's just Yuki all the way.
