Director/Business Tax Accountant at Abacus Professional Services
Sue commenced Abacus in 1988 following seven years at a ‘Big 6’ firm. She primarily works with small and medium sized business owners to help them grow their revenues, profits and business value.
Sue’s objective with her clients is to solve their tax and financial problems, help them to capitalise on opportunities and ensure they avoid the pitfalls through the life cycle of their business. “Our team goal is to be very knowledgeable about our clients’ businesses,” she says. “We want to understand their business and their specific industry issues. This helps us develop strategies and select the right tools to help them with financial reporting, tax reporting, tax planning, wealth creation and other business issues.”
As Sue says, “Clients come to us looking for solutions to their tax, management accounting, succession planning and cashflow problems and we speak a language our clients understand. We really help business owners understand their numbers, improve their results and help them spend more time working on their business rather than working in their business”.
