Looking For The Best Mid Tier Accounting Firm In Sydney?

Find Out How The Right Accountant (even if they’re not as big as a mid-tier firm) Can Transform Your Business, Save You Tax And Reduce Your Stress

Why Work With Mid Tier Accounting Firms In Sydney?

Mid-tier firms sound like they’re the best of both worlds right?  Big enough to have a good reputation and some really smart technicians to make sure your accounting and tax is sorted but not as expensive and elite as the big 4.  And If you need services like audit, corporate finance or international tax, then honestly a mid or top tier firm is probably best for you.

But if you’re a small or medium business without those needs, then mid-tier isn’t your only, and possibly not your best option. Why? The reality is, mid tiers are just like smaller firms – but with a bigger price tag and less personalised service.  Bigger firms have more people, more people means you need more people to manage those people – these managers aren’t exactly revenue producing so for the mid-tier to make profit guess what they do?  Put their prices up.

How do we know this?

Because we’ve worked in and with mid-tier firms before Watson & Watt came along.  That’s right, our staff have the skills, experience and know-how that landed them jobs as senior staff in mid-tier firms and now they work for us.

Now why would businesses and staff choose to leave a mid-tier to come work with a boutique advisory like Watson & Watt?

  • We want to build a genuine relationship with our clients.

    Being a smaller business allows us to devote more time to the clients that we work with, giving us the time to build a strong, healthy relationship with every customer. Larger firms may not have the opportunity to do so due to the large volume of clients that they encounter on a day-to-day basis, and the pressure for them to hit their timesheet targets. What business owner wants to work with an accounting company where they’re just seen as a number?  We think timesheets are counter-productive to building long term mutually rewarding win/win relationships.  So our staff are focused on long term goals like client retention, and job completion times rather than how well they can fill in a timesheet.

  • We are flexible

    In a similar manner to taking the time to build a relationship, we also take the time to understand exactly what the needs of each of our customers are. In doing so, we can tailor our services to suit each person, rather than simply offering a blanket package which may result in our customers paying for services that they will never benefit from.

  • We often recruit stronger employees.

    Just as working with a smaller accounting firm offers a different experience for our customers, working for a smaller firm also offers a different experience for our employees. Many accountants who are searching for a new job yearn for the chance to be able to interact with their clients more, which is exactly what working for a smaller firm gives them the opportunity to do. Plus our disbursed approach to staff means we can recruit the best for the job, regardless of where they live.  Happy employees translate to increased productivity and better results for our clients so it’s a win-win for everyone.

All in all, working with a smaller firm can present a host of new advantages for your business. It allows you to work in a closer capacity with your accountant and ensure that your needs are being listened to and dealt with. It’s like being a big fish in a little pond instead of a little fish in a big pond – who would ever want to be a little fish?

When you choose to work with us, you can also rest easier knowing that you are working with some of the best accountants in the business. People who have the skills, experience and know-how to work in mid-tier (and bigger) firms – but have chosen instead to work for Watson & Watt – accountants that have a genuine interest in ensuring the best outcome for you.

Where are we?


Our head office is in Brisbane, and we do a lot of work on the Gold Coast but we work with clients all across Australia through the power of the internet.  We’re pretty expert at remote working because our staff don’t all work out of Brisbane.  This means we’re pros with phone calls, video calls, screen recordings, email, carrier pigeon however you like to communicate we can handle.

Can we meet in person?

Sure can – we have meeting rooms in Pymble for those times (like strategy days) we need to be in the same room.
