IT’S TIME TO SMELL THE COFFEE. GET REAL. AND GET REAL RESULTS.

OUR
PRACTICE

Strategic Accounting are a future-focused, straight-talking accounting consultancy offering comprehensive business services across Tax Compliance and Consultancy, Business Advice and Support Services and Superannuation. Founded in 2009 by Director, Peter Donkin, Strategic Accounting has been shaped by his no-fuss, results-driven approach from day one. Andrew Dunstan joined the business in 2010 and together our two partners have taken the business and our clients from strength to strength.

Risk Reduction, Wealth Creation and Business Success

We talk about what really matters to your business. At Strategic Accounting we take a straight-talking approach to Risk Reduction, Wealth Creation and Business Success to get the results you really want.

We work closely with our clients, always thinking critically and strategically beyond traditional approaches and looking ahead to what opportunities and risk may present themselves down the track. As your business grows, so will our partnership with you. At Strategic Accounting we focus wholly on providing the right financial management systems and business advice that will contribute to your ongoing success.

Our business is based on a simple philosophy that guides our approach to every aspect of our clients’ business and affairs.

Real Partnerships

We’re real people and so are you, you’re not just a client or another set of accounts. In order to deliver results for you, we take the time to get to know you, preferably over a coffee.

Real Conversations

We talk about what really matters; the big things, the little things, everything. If you need advice or guidance, we’ll tell you what we really think. We’re up-front and straight-talking, there’s no point in being anything else.

Real Results

Whilst everyone else is thinking about the best approach, we’re focusing on being proactive to get the outcomes that have a positive impact on your success. They’re the only kind of outcomes that count.
