[Who are we?]

We know you're not Googling accountants for fun.  

You're here because you're not getting the advice, service or help you want.  

Maybe you're just starting out, or maybe you've been doing whatever it is you do for years.  Either way you're looking for an accountant that will be right for your business.

There's thousands of accountants you can work with, and of course we do all the usual stuff you'd expect from an accountant like financial statements, tax returns, fringe benefits tax, Business Activity Statements, tax planning and more.  

There's nothing special about any of that, so how are we different?

Honestly we're not for everyone - and not everyone is for us.

If you're looking for a super serious, iron your undies bean counter - we're not it.

If you're looking for down to earth, practical people, who believe you can have a personality and still be professional - then we're in with a shot. Because all tax accountants can do a tax return - it's the relationship you have with your advisor that matters.

More than filing in forms

We've got more to offer to businesses than just filing in forms.  We work with business owners to set a tax strategy, and then implement it.    But to plan your taxes we need to know you, whether you want to reinvest in the business, take more cash off the table for your personal life or start a whole new business. Once we know what you want to do, we work with you to do it in the most tax effective manner.

A Safe Set of Hands

The right accountant for you is the one you trust. You should be able to trust they will get your tax returns, Business Activity Statements, and Fringe Benefits taxes lodged on time and correctly.  You shouldn't have to second guess whether they've got your affairs under control. You've got enough to do running your business, you shouldn't have to worry about your accountant too.
