We’re Now eSigning with Annature

annature_logo.pngGetting important documents signed quickly and efficiently was a real headache for both professional services businesses and our clients, requiring document drop off & collection or meetings to arrange signatures. Until the development of highly secure, online platforms such as Annature which allow us to request and receive digital signatures instead.

Now that we’ve established that our clients are comfortable using eSignature verification platforms, we’ve selected Australian-made and owned, Annature, as our preferred provider.

While there are lots of great eSignature providers and verification platforms available, it was important for us to work with a business that is already au fait with our industry as certified Chartered Accountants as well as our partner accounting systems including Xero and FYI. As an Australian owned and operated business, we could also see that Annature has a better understanding of the scale and scope of our businesses in Australia and New Zealand.

We chose Annature because their eSignature services work and integrate with:

  • Xero
  • FYI
  • Chartered Accountants Australia + New Zealand (CAANZ)


Built on leading blockchain technology

Annature leverages blockchain technology to deliver a cryptographically verifiable database and audit trail for all digital signatures. By establishing a tamper-proof digital certificate for critical compliance information, evidence is reliable and trustworthy at all times.


What Our Customers Think

Great local Accountants. They provide an excellent service with great explanations for the layman. They provide accounting services for non rural clients too.

Quinn Wilson, Restaurant Owner, The Wagon
What Our Customers Think

Rural Accountants is a real asset to our business.

The team at Rural Accountants pretty much manage all our administrative tasks for the group including payroll and tax planning, ensuring we don’t pay any more than necessary. They are at the forefront of technology and have helped us get up and running with Xero and Figured which is much more efficient than the way we used to work.

What Our Customers Think

I used to work out my GST and process it manually which would take me at least a full day every two months. The team set up reconcilliation rules and other quick tools, and showed me how to do all my reconcilliations and process my GST returns through Xero which now takes me no time at all!

Mike O'Neill, Financial Services Northland Ltd
What Our Customers Think

As a farmer, Christine understands our business and how farmers and growers operate.

We use Rural Accountants to provide a full accounting service to an orcharding partnership which operates a number of orchards with a wide spread of varieties and management systems. Rural Accountants are always timely and accurate, and their annual financial accounts are extremely easy to understand and very grower-friendly.
