With a more than 20-year history of developing accounting packages that are used by small to medium sized enterprises across Australia, Arrow Research Corporation is committed to ensuring our accounting and business management software always addresses the unique requirements of the markets we operate in.

In Australia this means responding quickly to the ever changing legislative and regulatory requirements of Australian Federal, State and Local Governments. Most recently this saw the introduction of Single Touch Payroll lodgement (STP) functionality, and functions supporting the generation of a compliant SAFF for uploading to third-party clearing houses or super fund portals.

Using Australian developed accounting packages is not a requirement for businesses in Australia. But when it comes to accommodating some unique characteristics of Australian taxes, superannuation, and leave entitlement, using a locally developed accounting package can make it easier to implement, freeing you up to manage your business and finances without further complications.

Arrow Research Corporation is not only 100% Australian owned; all our software is also developed locally. And with coverage in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Canberra, Perth and Adelaide, and an extensive network of Business Partners, scheduling a demonstration or requesting professional support will never be a problem.
