22 years providing these services

Jeanette Korporaal and Cecil Benjamin set up Benkorp in 1995
Qualified accountants, previous corporate financial management and administration experience, also previously church pastors

1,200+ SME's & Not for Profit Organisations

Benkorp has worked with over 1,200 SME and Not for Profit organisations (primarily churches). The past 4 years we have stepped up to accounting in the cloud using Xero Accounting Software.


550+ Churches

In 1999 Benkorp established a relationship with Sydney Anglican Diocese and Uniting Church NSW Synod where we developed a standard accounting package with support services. Since then we have set-up, trained and supported over 550 churches.

Where we are today

After many trips to Cambodia, Kenya & Uganda to provide training in business and financial management, Cecil & Jeanette moved to Cambodia in 2010. There we set up accounting systems and provided training for local accountants/bookkeepers in Christian Churches and Not for Profit Organisations. We also provided training on starting and running businesses for young Cambodians living in Phnom Penh.

Since our return to Sydney and the rise of online/web based systems Jeanette has focused on Xero Accounting software. She says that she “will never go back to desktop accounting systems. Xero is sooo much easier it is a game changer!!” During the past 4 years we have set up over 100 organisations with Xero.

We are now based in Glebe, Sydney.
