Principal and Founding Partner
John is a highly experienced and professional accountant with more than 30 years in the industry. After gaining his qualifications, John developed his career in the Adelaide offices of the Taxation Department (now known as the Australian Taxation Office, or ATO for short). This was invaluable experience and convinced John that his future lay in Public Accounting & Taxation work. John has built a strong Public Accounting practice and has developed a well earned reputation as a problem solver for his many clients. He is particularly adept at thinking outside the box to find creative (but always legal & ethical) solutions to clients’ needs. John is also very down to earth and is comfortable with people from all walks of life. Our clients find John very easy to talk to and say that he “speaks our language” without jargon or complicated concepts. When John moved to Brisbane, he joined Business Network International (BNI) and initially through the Ipswich branch has gained many valuable contacts over the last 10 years. John is now a member of the Mt Ommaney branch and continues his long involvement with BNI. These contacts are referred to clients as appropriate.

- Cash Flow Management
