    Hi Folks

    I am really struggling to find a diligent property focused accountant and i need one now more than ever, can you please recommend me someone?

    Ideally someone local but i appreciate this can be done over the phone these days, i don't mind either way as long as i receive the service level I'm after.

    Too many bad experiences and i just don't have tome to stuff around.

    Thanks
    tasksta

    @Paul@PFI - not sure about how solid he is but would have to be one of the best IP focused accountants I know of.

    Based in Syd but clients everywhere.

    Cheers

    Jamie

    Paul's a great accountant and is highly recommended.

    Did you know that Bernie Maddoff's accountant's registered office was a back room at a shopping centre? and no one raised a question....
