About Us

We’re Accountants, Attorneys and Business Consultants with over 100 years of combined experience.

Our Story

Stories fraught with frustration and bad decisions made simply because of poor data collection, record keeping and lack information lit the fire that would lead to the founding of FirstLink.

In 2015, Mr. Richard Oliver answered the appeals for help and founded FirstLink with the goal of redefining the accounting services industry within Trinidad and Tobago. Many accountants at that time and even now only provided their clients with accounting and tax compliance services.

In today’s dynamic business environment, a business owner requires access to value-added advisory support solutions to manage and grow a successful business. If you are like our existing clients before they approached us, we’re sure you are facing business challenges such as duplication of data entry efforts between sales and accounting processes, inadequate accounting policies and controls, lack of real-time financial reporting, poor cash flow management, and a lack of data driven decision making.

To remain competitive these challenges must be addressed. It’s not feasible to continue running your business blindly. But there’s a solution!

The Cloud Accountant – A Trusted Business Adviser

Most local businesses and accountants still rely on traditional desktop accounting software to record their financial transactions. FirstLink’s mission is to reshape the client – accountant relationship by providing greater access to real-time insights, effective cash flow management strategies and strategic business analytics. We utilize market-leading cloud software and technology to create a painless accounting experience.

Our goal is to make businesses and their owners smarter by leveraging technology, providing data driven information and predictability in pricing. We provide your small business with access to the same technology and tools that large companies utilize in their decision-making processes for a fraction of the cost.

Most people have an accountant because they know they should, not because they’re getting something valuable out of the relationship. FirstLink seeks to disrupt this norm by focusing on the provision of value-added advisory solutions. We provide financial and business insights that can directly influence the success of the organization by bridging the gap between numbers, operations, and strategy.

Over the years, FirstLink has evolved from the provision of bookkeeping and tax services into a one stop shop for business outsourcing and advisory services providing specialized finance, legal and human resource solutions to Startups and SMBs.

Client Testimonials

Atlantic Tours and Travel Limited

The team at FirstLink has always supported us from inception with our initial company registration providing practical and knowledgeable advice to guide us during the startup process. Fast forward to present – They provide us with both accounting and business advisory services. We feel comfortable and at peace knowing that we can call on Richard and his team at any time day or night to deal with any complex accounting, legal, human resource or business challenge that we’re going through.”


For us, what distinguishes FirstLink from the many accountants we’ve dealt with in the past is their adoption of modern technology to reduce the tedious and administrative processes and their focus on providing clients with not only accounting services but value added advisory and consulting services. As business owners, we’re not necessarily savvy in finance or legal, however, we can always depend on FirstLink for any issue we are facing. We feel like the relationship with FirstLink is more partners for life as oppose to just a client – accountant relationship.


The team at FirstLink introduced our business to Xero accounting. It has given us a lot more control over our financial information and for non-accountants; it is extremely easy to use. The Xero Mobile App easily allows us to send invoices to our customers on the go and tracks when the invoices have been viewed by them. I would definitely recommend Xero and FirstLink to anyone looking to implement cloud software to gain real time financial information to improve their business.
