About Us

The Firm

Commencing on July 1, 1972, the Firm was established by David Coomber with the assistance of his late father George Coomber who had been an Accountant and Businessman since 1946.  Discipline, hard work and entrepreneurship have been the hallmark from that time on. 

Specialising initially in Taxation Accounting and Business Advice Services, the Firm grew rapidly over the years and as a sign of the Firms qualities, it still retains some of its earliest clients from the early 1970’s.  That is not to say that it does not seek to innovate as times change.  Indeed as new technologies become available, they are readily embraced to ensure that clients receive the best service possible at an affordable cost. 

In 1987, specialist Financial Planning was introduced to provide an additional range of services.  This extends to Superannuation, Pension, Risk Insurance, Finance and Mortgages.

The Firm has in more recent times provided Estate Planning, Estate Administration and Self Managed Superannuation Fund Administration and Audit as the needs of clients become more involved and complex.
