Lost in endless hours of admin…?

Afirmo gets you back on track, helping you skip the lost hours to admin, so you can set up and manage your business efficiently.

How Afirmo Works:

Information is shared between Afirmo tools to save you time and optimise your experience.

Afirmo tools are personalised to your business, based on your business needs, and the information you provide Afirmo.

For example, your Business Industry Classification (BIC) is free with Afirmo and when you use it in Afirmo’s other tools, it determines what insurance you need, how much ACC levies you need to pay.
