The two practices provide extensive services and the practice team are able to assist with:
Tax and Audit: Tax returns (individuals, partnerships, companies, trusts and super funds, GST, SMSF audit and tax planning.
Business Services: Accounting and bookkeeping, asset protection, benchmarking, budgeting, business advice and review, business structure set-up, cash flow forecasting, management consulting, accounting software solutions and strategic planning.
Specialist Services: Company secretary, rental properties, SMSF (set-up, accounts, tax and audit), succession planning, and trusts.
Audrey says, ‘We take a lot of care with customer service standards. Emails and phone calls are responded to on the same day. We also keep clients informed by sending out monthly and quarterly newsletters. With business clients, once we prepare the financials we contact them and invite them to participate in a meeting to discuss the outcomes.’
We really work at empowering our business clients and transforming their businesses. Recently, for example, we helped a client who is a sole practitioner of a legal firm with concerns about profitability. Revenue was at an all-time low and there were constant cash flow problems. We worked in a consultative way with our client to establish key performance indicators and to develop an improvement plan. This included improved billing processes and identification of work in progress. We also introduced time-saving measures by incorporating efficient software into business functions. Additionally, we introduced a workflow management system to keep on top of routine tasks and manage “receivables”. As a result of these changes our client is no longer facing cash flow problems.’
