Accountants and Lawyers

We work closely with accountants and lawyers, providing a range of services for their clients to aid the support they are already offering.  Those we work with know that if they recommend us to a client they are kept involved every step the way.

We work symbiotically with accountants and lawyers

We believe in transparency and working together, as a client has many needs at various stages of life and business and no one professional can provide it all.

We have many years experience so we understand the valuable tax, compliance, business advisory and legal support accountants and lawyers provide, often referring our clients to these professionals to complete and monitor accountancy and legal requirements in their overall financial planning needs as an individual, business or a family/charitable trust.

We understand governance, director responsibilities and trustee duties and responsibilities, so when it comes to supporting the accounting and legal profession and their clients, we share our knowledge and ensure that all parties are protected to the highest standards.  All of our services are available to support accountants and lawyers to look after their clients’ needs and we work hard together to build healthy, long term relationships as well as their own businesses.

The clients’ best interests are at the forefront of all discussions.

How can we assist?

  • We understand that professional firms like to ensure they retain their clients and are often the main relationship ‘go to’ person for their clients
  • We provide the extended services and expertise that lawyers and accountants cannot, or are not authorised to provide
  • We can be viewed as an extension to the professional firms business for those lawyers and accountants who have built up a strong and trusted relationship with us.  This is more a partnership role where we and the accountant and/or lawyer work together to ensure the client receives comprehensive services and advice that is in their best interest.  This allows the client to feel comfortable knowing that every aspect of their affairs are being run efficiently and effectively and all their professional advisers are ‘on the same page’ where advice from all parties dovetails in with each other
  • We are able to assist with the growth of the accountant’s and lawyer’s practice as we often identify new areas of work that the client will need from them as a result of engaging our expertise
