Company Profile

Paul commenced his taxation and accounting business in July 1982 after completing his Bankers Institute Course (now Diploma and Banking and Finance) and Public Accounting certificate (now Institute of Public Accountants) on a part time basis.  He worked for Bank of New South Wales (now  Westpac Banking Corporation) full time and operated the tax business on nights and weekends. The business was operated by travelling to the client’s homes with a laptop computer to complete individual tax returns for some 20 years.

In 1985 Paul left the employment of Westpac Banking Corporation and joined the Australian Stock Exchange as a Manager, Companies and Listings. 1988 saw Paul complete his part time Land Broking (now referred to as Conveyancing) studies and achieved registration as a conveyancer. He also completed the 3 year Securities Institute certificate course in the same year.

He left the employment of the Australian Stock Exchange in early 1988 and joined a financial planning firm as their Accountant, completing Income tax returns and related matters for clients.

In mid 1993 Paul’s accounting, taxation and conveyancing businesses had grown to a level where he realised that he needed to provide his full attention to his expanding client base. He then commenced operation at Flinders Street, Kent Town in a shared office.

May 1999 was a major turning point in the business when Paul moved the operation to his own premises at 81 Fullarton Road Kent Town. He also employed 2 staff at this time.

In order to provide clients with a full range of services, Paul joined “Professional Investment Services Pty Ltd” as an authorised representative, providing clients with investment advice and insurance advice.
