It’s not about us, it’s about you.
Our process is extremely collaborative - requiring an equal amount of commitment from each side. You’ll be asked to have your information entered and documents uploaded on a weekly basis so that your team of huumans can get to work, reconciling everything fully each week to generate a true golden record for your business.
For many business owners this is something of a transition from how they've typically done their bookkeeping before. But we've found that for every owner that was concerned that a weekly approach wasn't for them, it turned out to be a defining moment in their business; providing them with more control, and a deeper understanding of their business. With the added benefit of less anxiety and late-night worries.

We’re the most progressive partner you’ll (probably) ever work with.
The traditional bookkeeping model just isn’t working anymore. It’s not working for small business owners and it’s not working for accounting and bookkeeping professionals. In an environment where more and more small business payments and e-commerce happen 24/7 in global markets, where things are more uncertain than ever, where supply chains are strained and budgets changing daily, your business numbers have never been more critical to your success.
Cloud technology and remote work have opened the door to that new future, and huumans has been designed from the ground up to to deliver the insight you need when you need it - not at year end. At huumans we don't look at where your business was last financial year, we look where it could be, and help you work out how to get there.

We’ve always got our heads in the cloud, and you’ll be glad we do.
Today’s small business accounting software gives you access to tools that were once only available to the big guys. It's online, on-demand and incredibly accurate. We use Xero, QuickBooks Online, Wagepoint and Hubdoc for our bookkeeping and accounting processes, which are tried and tested applications we know can handle the pressures of running a real business. We're constantly reviewing existing and new applications, making sure that we're able to offer best-in-class software to everyone at huumans.
Frequently asked questions
Read what others have also wanted to know.
What if I don’t use any of the software you use?
To work with huumans, you’ll need to use the same tools as huumans. But don’t worry - we’ll help you choose the applications that are the best fit for your business and get them all set up for you at no charge. Our plans are inclusive of any software and set-up costs!
What if I use something other than QuickBooks Online (QBO) or Xero for my accounting?
While we hope to grow our expertise over time, we currently only use these two platforms. We're happy to transfer your business data to Xero and QuickBooks Online (QBO) as part of you joining huumans at no charge! So no matter if your business runs on Sage, Wave or Freshbooks - we can transition your books easily and accurately.
Do you support other tools like e-commerce and point-of-sale (POS)?
As long as the application that you’re using works with QuickBooks or Xero through a specific integration. If you’ve got any questions about a specific application, just let us know.
Do I have to be a Canadian business to work with huumans?
Yes, huumans currently only serves Canadian small businesses. Want to know if your business is a fit? Tell us about yourself.
Parlez-vous Québec businesses?
Not right now, but we’re hoping to roll out support for Revenu Québec (RQ) soon. Nous sommes très désolés.
Where is huumans based?
Our basecamp is in Halifax, Nova Scotia (recognized as Kjipuktuk, situated in the unceded territory of Mi'kma'ki). While we're East Coast founded, we have staff and teams nation-wide across Canada and deeply understand the many differing provincial requirements local businesses face while being able to support those who operate nationwide and internationally.
