We Are Squirrel Street

Squirrel Street – formerly Shoeboxed Australia – is the industry leader in digitising and organising receipts, invoices and documents. Our aim is to eliminate the need for data entry, saving customers, like you, from wasting precious resources including time and money, so you can focus on the parts of your business that really matter.

Simon Foster, Founder & CEO of Squirrel Street brought Squirrel Street to Australia in April 2010. Simon is credited with being one of the early drivers of receipt scanning technologies for the small business and accounting/bookkeeping sectors in Australia.

We are a privately held, small-medium company, with headquarters located in Crows Nest, Sydney.

In June 2015, we decided to split from US parent company, Shoeboxed Inc. (You can see the media coverage here).

Why did we do that? Well, to put it simply, to better focus on the needs of the Australian and New Zealand small businesses and their owners, like you.

The requirements for tax reporting in the US (where Shoeboxed Inc. are based) are considerably different to those here in Australia, so the split came as a mutual decision based on differing customer needs which ultimately require quite different development priorities. So, taking the company down a different path than our US counterparts, means greater opportunities to better meet the needs of the Australian market.

Our renewed focus on the Australian and New Zealand markets allows us to keep as relevant as possible for our customers both now and into the future, from a technology development perspective. So, as of 2015, we’re back to running on the agenda of those most important to us – local Aussie and Kiwi accountants, bookkeepers and business owners.

As such, we’re proud to say we meet the ATO’s conditions for the use of digital receipts for BAS, annual returns, audits and other reporting requirements. So no more worries surrounding compliance come tax time! In fact, we’re the only digital receipt management provider registered with the ATO!


So what makes Squirrel Street different?

We’re 100% Australian owned and operated! At Squirrel Street, we’re about supporting local Aussie businesses, their owners, and Aussie employees too. That’s why we’re committed to helping some of Australia’s more disadvantaged job seekers find and remain in work. We employ mums seeking part-time and flexible schedules, students & the long-term unemployed!

”I congratulate the Shoeboxed team on your genuine commitment to the long-term unemployed [and] thank you for helping some of our more disadvantaged job seekers find and remain in work.”
