Who we are

Our Firm

For almost 40 years our team of Chartered Accountants and Financial Planners have helped our clients in South East Queensland achieve their financial goals. 

Our advice is holistic and covers all areas of business and personal wealth management.  We understand the importance of synchronising personal and business goals. 

 

 

We work with small and medium-sized businesses in a range of industries, from start-ups to established enterprises, and advise on business strategy, tax matters, self-managed superannuation (SMSF), cloud accounting and business structuring. 
 
We embrace technological advancements and have established key alliances with like-minded firms to enable us to provide our clients with complete business and wealth management solutions.

Our Approach

Our goal is to partner with you for the long term.  We are genuinely concerned with helping you achieve the best possible financial outcomes, now and through to your retirement. 

 

We like to meet and talk with you as much as possible, so that we can continue to understand your personal and business goals, now and into the future.  The more we understand you, and your financial affairs, the better we can provide quality and timely advice.

 

We never “set and forget”.  We continually monitor and manage your investment portfolio to ensure that your investment strategy is on track to meet your goals and objectives.
