Our People


We know our staff are as important to our business as they are to yours. For this reason, we take the recruitment and development of our staff very seriously. We only hire CA/CPA qualified accountants and do not take on graduates or trainees. This ensures that all of our team are not only qualified and experienced in Australian tax law and accounting standards, but also sufficiently exposed to the day-to-day commercial realities faced by business owners and investors.
All of our accounting staff undertake at least 40 hours of training per year, to ensure they remain up to date with all the latest changes and developments.
