On the recommndation of a someone who posted on a similar thread on RA some time a go, I used Tony Hanrahan from Australian Management Consultants. Very down to earth, wants the best outcome, no messing around. Already got one substantial return back. Handy for me as they are in the same building too!

Why is it the accountants fault that you don’t get a large return?

Why is it that people think they are entitled to a tax refund at all? Normally the same people who whine that government services aren’t good enough.

Hadrill Accountants in North Lyneham, specialises in Investment returns too. My partner and I went and can highly recommend them. No farting around and got a great return.

If you don’t mind travelling, I can’t speak highly enough of Ian Bain in Goulburn. Alternatively, if you’re after good quality financial advice and not specifically for tax agent/accounting services, Scott Malcolm at Money Mechanics in Civic is brilliant.
