Our team are dedicated to providing you and your business with personalised professional services. All our team members are committed to ongoing professional development so you enjoy the best technical tax and accounting advice available. Below are the profiles on our team members.
“There are two types of accountants for business owners to consider, technical ones and strategic ones. Having consulted to hundreds of small business owners and written 3 books I can share with you that having a technical accountant looking after your accounts is 100% useless if you are following the wrong strategy in the first place. Chris is a Strategic Accountant that focuses on your strategy first and then follows through with the right technical aspects. It's why Chris has been my accountant for over 20 years and is more affordable than you think, especially when you realise how much money you have given away unknowingly through poor advice.”
Chris always wanted to build a very different accounting practice and that’s the offices are in a genteel Victorian terrace in Moonee Ponds. Each room is immaculate and contains fresh flowers. There’s no reception desk or waiting room, instead, clients can sit in the lounge and enjoy a complimentary refreshment from the menu. According to Chris, “Our clients love coming here because it’s not sterile like most offices. We want clients to feel relaxed and talk to us about what is important to them. Clients don’t come to us just to do a tax return. Sure, that needs to be done for the Government but it doesn't really help the client. It’s what we do beyond compliance that clients really want.
First, we help clients minimise their compliance costs by implementing the most appropriate accounting software program for their business. We are careful to match their business needs with their level of accounting skill and we support a range of packages including cloud based options like XERO. This helps keep track of the numbers so everyone knows how the business is performing and we can then offer pro-active advice”.
Chris then proposes strategies designed to help improve business profitability. He says, “These strategies can include anything from
team training to marketing, innovative advertising, and customer service techniques. In the last few years the trend has moved towards
helping clients establish lead generation websites, optimizing them for Google and helping them script and produce videos plus manage social
“We also want to make sure clients retain more of what they work hard to earn, so we review their business structure to ensure the clients assets are protected and the structure will minimize their tax liability. We then educate clients on how re-invest the savings to build their wealth by helping them to set up a real-estate portfolio or where appropriate, a self-managed superannuation fund The ultimate goal is to help clients build a passive income stream and retire early.”
