A Modern Approach

Accounting and Tax is there anything more boring? Debits and credits and filling out forms? Yeah we get it, we think so too. Business has become way to serious, that’s why we created Watson & Watt. We want to have fun, and to talk shop with switched on operators. We want to help people succeed, not fill out forms. That’s why we’re shaking things up, and creating a consultancy for the modern era.

 

We’ve leveraged technology and cloud based software, to minimise the menial tasks for both you and us so we can get on and have some fun, talk about you, your business and what you want from life.

 

It’s simple stuff really, but understanding what you’re aiming for is the only way we can truly help you succeed.

Why We Do What We Do

The data doesn’t lie

 

Businesses turning over less than $2,000,000 fail 30% more than those who turnover more than $2,000,000.  But only 1.4% of businesses turning over less than $2,000,000 in the 2016FY, grew to turnover more than $2,000,000 in the 2017FY.

 

Growing up in a family of small business owners, we know only too well how hard business can be.  Everywhere you look, hard working small businesses are failing.

 

Almost 50% of businesses starting today won’t survive more than 3 years. 

 

Not because they’re not good at what they do. Not because they don’t work hard, or treat their customers and staff right, but because they’ve not had the right advice to understand the financial performance, what taxes to expect nor how to build the systems and processes needed for a business to survive.

 

So that’s why we started Watson & Watt, to help small business build the business they always dreamed of.

Nathan Watt - Managing Director

Having spent my late teens and early 20’s as a pastry chef, I developed a fascination for financial markets and the fiscal freedom and independence they could provide. The path I was on was not going to provide the life I wanted so I hung up my apron and moved back home (thanks Mum) to study accounting and banking finance at QUT. I completed my qualifications to become a Chartered Accountant in 2009, and went on to complete my MBA from the University of Queensland in 2012.  As an advocate for men’s health, I am passionate about personal development and continual improvement and strongly believe in backing your abilities, and taking risks to build the life you dream of.
