I established Blue Ribbon Accounting in 2010 out of a desire to bring accounting back to the people. My mission is for every one of my clients to feel comfortable and confident with their own knowledge of their tax affairs, as well as with my management of them.
After graduating in 2007 from Queensland University of Technology with a Bachelor of Business (with an extended major in Accountancy), I worked for three years in a large public firm.
I provided tax, compliance and advice services to a huge variety of clients ranging from individuals through nationally recognised brands. During my time there, I also completed my Graduate Diploma in Chartered Accounting (Grad Dip. CA).
I found more and more of my friends (some with small businesses of their own) were approaching me looking for advice or assistance - wanting services at a reasonable price point from an accountant that they liked and trusted.
I also found myself battling more and more with the 'traditional' constraints of being an accountant - business suits, long hours, lack of flexibility, and the strange industry belief that prestige arrives when the client comes to see you on your terms.
Wanting to make a difference on my own terms, I established Blue Ribbon Accounting in 2010 to give people back ownership of their tax affairs by offering them:
- Reasonably and clearly priced services, structured to match the real world (I did not want to price gouge people by charging 'per payment summary')
- Flexible hours and locations (no 9-5, no office location - I wanted flexible hours, with on site appointments)
- Integrated bookkeeping and accounting (the ability to take your business from bank statement to tax return while staying cost effective)
I'm having my tenth anniversary as an accountant this year - three years in a big firm, and seven years operating Blue Ribbon Accounting. I'm still just as dedicated now as I was when I started out to offering services on your terms. It remains my aim to give every client of Blue Ribbon Accounting convenience and confidence in their tax affairs.
