Celebrating 45 years
27 June 2018
From an office in O’Connell Street Sydney 45 years ago, to organisation whose clients span Australia, and the globe….
While the “tools of trade” accountants use today are more sophisticated than then pencil, eraser and adding machine that Mick Boyce had available in 1973, our firm’s desire to provide genuine care and timely information to our clients to allow them to make insightful decisions, with a view to helping them maximise wealth, remains unchanged.
“We are extremely proud to be celebrating 45 years in business this year,” Managing Director Phil Alchin said. “We feel just so lucky and privileged to share the relationships that we do with our valued clients. Our firm continues to live Mick’s ethos that accounting is so much more about people than numbers and we are humbled that a number of Mick’s original clients and their families continue to be clients today.”
“In 1973 what Mick was doing was revolutionary. After preparing the budget by hand with Mick, his clients would write out the actual transactions each month and post them to Mick in Sydney. Mick would then check the numbers and put them on a plane overnight to Victoria where they would be processed by a computer and an actual to budget report produced. The reports would return to Mick by plane and he would review them and make notes before posting them back to the client. Mick would then later ring the client to discuss the reports and they would discuss the key business decisions to be made.”
“While our firm’s key point of difference, genuine care for clients and our passion for helping them maximise their wealth, has remained unchanged, the way this point of difference manifests itself continues to evolve. The breadth and depth of our service offering is unmatched for a regionally based firm. The continued investment and expansion in our tax consulting, audit and assurance and business systems service offerings demonstrates our commitment to exceeding our clients’ expectations in an ever changing world.”
“We are now a team of 130 people, with five offices and fourteen directors servicing a range of clients from family businesses to large corporate entities based both domestically and internationally across a range of industries and sectors.”
“While our business will need to continue to evolve to meet the challenges of an ever changing world we feel that our commitment to our firm’s vision and values will continue to serve us well into the future.”
