    Hi swinys,

    Welcome to the forum and to Oz!!!

    The first name that sprung to mind was one of the people in here, Stuart Wemyss.

    I already have my own (long term) accountant, but if I ever decide to switch, I would definitely consider turning to Stu; he seems very down-to-earth and knows his stuff. He writes for API (Australian Property Investor) magazine, and has won national awards of excellence!!! Can’t do better than that now can you??? [winking][winking]

    Cheers,

    Jo

    P.S. Stu, could you please remember to mark the cheque “not negotiable” thanks!!! [lmao]

    Swinys,

    Dale Gatherum-Goss

    You’ll find him referenced quite widely here & in other property investment forums.

    Cheers,

    Hi setmefree,

    We have all got to meet Mark at a few MAP Meetings. We have quizzed him until he was blue in the face!

    He has always been able to answer our questions, and appears quite knowledgable for someone so young.

    He is easy to talk to, which is always good too.

    Hi Monopoly:

    Stuart is a Mortgage Broker these days, (he is ours), and he is excellent, but I don’t think that he is doing accounting anymore.

    Regards,

    Del

    Gatherum-Goss is in Kilsyth (near Mt Dandenong) which is way the other side of town from where I live or work.

    Any recommendations for a good accountant near the CBD area or a nearby suburb ?

    Thanks !

    Can someone please help ?

    I would very much prefer to find an accountant via recommendation then to look one up in the Yellow Pages.

    Thanks !

    bennido,

    I live in Canberra & use Dale.

    I know people in NSW, WA, QLD & Japan who all use Dale.

    I’m sorry that he lives too far away from you [biggrin]

    If you want to use the best, use the best.

    Cheers,

    Aceyducey

    I contacted Dale but he is not so sure on the cross border tax issues for NZ/Aust.

    Can anyone recommend any accountant, anywhere in Melbourne, who has expertise in this area.

    Thanks

    my guess is that if Dale doesn’t know – no accountant will…

    I’ve found a way to help you save and earn whilst not selling or delivering any product. If interested, drop me an email or PM me to find out how

    Dale is a good accountant but if you do go to his firm don’t expect him to personally handle your tax. He will hand you over to one of his associates.

    We would generally refer our Melbourne based clients to Dale Gatherum-Goss http://www.gatherumgoss.com however our accountant/solicitor Michael Quinn who is based in Sydney has clients all over Australia as well as clients based overseas so he maybe able to help. His website is:  http://www.quinns.com.au/

    recently popped into Gatherum Goss to have a chat with them. Of the few firms i went to have a chat with, Gatherum Goss was the one of the less impressive ones. Maybe its due to the founders no longer owning the firm or maybe the chemistry between myself n the person i spoke to isn’t that great, i basically walked away not wanting to give them my business. Their ‘new’ office after the mgt change is in Blackburn, the old office being in Kilsyth.

    levi5, like yourself, i stay in South Yarra. I think the criteria for selecting the accountant should be their capabilities, rather than location. Having said that, i had a chat with a number of firms based on referrals who were recommended by our friends and colleagues. The closest one i spoke to had an office on St Kilda Rd somewhere. This firm very nearly took the prize of being the _least_ impressive and the most expensive. Not knowledge-able at all.

    The least impressive firm was one of the Big 4s. Waste of time and money.
