Colin Timmis
Head of Accounting

Colin has over 12 years of experience in the accounting profession and is widely considered an expert in cloud accounting software implementation, development, integration and best practice.

Having registered as a professional accountant with SAIPA in 2004, he then went on to run a traditional SME accounting practice for eight years.

In 2011, he founded South Africa’s first cloud accounting practice, real time accounting, and was later appointed as the first certified Xero advisor in South Africa.

In 2015 real time accounting became South Africa’s first member of the US-based Thriveal CPA Accounting Network, a global network of accountants founded with the aim of supporting each other and sharing best practice. Colin currently works with BDO, and was recently also appointed as the Head of Accounting for Xero South Africa.
