“I changed accounting firms in 2010 to Stanley & Williamson as our business was becoming more complex and required more accounting expertise, particularly in manufacturing and inventory controls. Stanley & Williamson provide relevant monthly and quarterly financial reports that enable me to easily monitor the business’s performance, whilst highlighting potential risks particularly associated with cash-flow – a problem often faced by rapidly growing manufacturing businesses. The reports provided are of a high standard and are also used for reporting to our bank. Michael Goodrick worked with me to develop meaningful KPI’s which are reviewed every quarter when we meet to discuss the performance of the business with my internal accountant. Explanations of our accounts are provided in easy to understand language and allow me to make well informed decisions to keep Thinking Ergonomix on the right path.”

“My business has used Bill Stanley, from Stanley & Williamson, for over 25 years. That is the longest association we have kept with any of our service providers. There is good reason for that. It goes way beyond just the normal Chartered Accountancy services such business structuring, capital gains tax, superannuation, and tax. Rather, Bill has time and again been able to address and solve difficult problems faced by my business in a practical, effective, creative and commonsense manner. I can thank Bill for helping to put my business, and as a result, my family, in a sound and strong position.”
Hugh Stanley
CEO, Equestrian Publishing Pty Ltd

As my business has grown, Michael Goodrick of Stanley & Williamson has been able to help me with all the issues that are relevant to a growing business. This has included tax planning, which is done in a systematized and proactive way, cashflow and financing issues, structuring, especially for new business partners being brought in, right through to all the commercial and tax issues around legal agreements and negotiations with clients and business partners.Guy Leech, Guy Leech Fitness

As the business has expanded and become more complex, they have been with us every step of the way, offering a wide variety of services and most of all, their knowledgeable and considered advice. In recent years, we have begun to expand internationally, and their network of contacts has proved invaluable in finding answers and solutions for the complicated situations that have arisen.

Since first meeting several Directors of Stanley & Williamson in 2009, I have been impressed with the calibre of their personnel and services. They provide not only normal tax compliance services, but also proactive financial advice to their clients. I have referred several of my clients to Stanley & Williamson all of whom have been impressed by the services provided. After initial meetings and retaining them, one of my clients emailed the following comment to me: “The time spent with Michael Goodrick to date has been illuminating and has made me realise the lack of service I was previously getting.””

Their very competent, responsive and professional approach has continued throughout our association since. Most importantly, Stanley & Williamson have proven to be driven by strong values of trustworthiness and integrity and a genuine commitment to their clients.”

My Business has been operating and competing in the Shipping Container Hire and Sales in Sydney, Central Coast of New South Wales, Newcastle and the Hunter Valley for the past 25 years and is in need of efficient and timely advice as it relates to Structure, Tax Minimisation and timely reporting.  I have been dealing with Darren O’Malley and Cameron Grace of Stanley and Williamson both of whom have provided the correct advice thus resulting in my Companies maximising profits.

Due to my satisfaction with the advice given, I subsequently transferred my other businesses accounting requirements to Stanley and Williamson.  These businesses are involved in Customs Clearance Agency and Freight Forwarding as well as a new acquisition in the Container business in Tamworth.

If anyone is contemplating changing their existing Accountants, I would certainly vouch for the quality of work produced by Stanley and Williamson and in particular Darren O’Malley and Cameron Grace.

Peter Bryant, Managing Director

“Over the years I have happily recommended the S&W team to colleagues as a professional team with a great knowledge of the constantly changing tax and accounting rules. I particularly like the fact that they have always given me sound advice and even on occasions advice I needed to hear in terms of investments and tax treatment. I like to know that the Australian Tax Office is not going to knock on my door because of “fast tax practices” sometimes seen in the accounting industry. Trust is something not easily earned with me in the cut and thrust of today’s business world. I have no hesitation saying the T word in respect to S&W, Bill and Michael, in particular. I would recommend the S&W team to any organisation or individual looking for high quality, professional accounting and tax advisors.”

Managing Director, The Lindfield Partners Pty Limited

Michael White

“Stanley & Williamson have been helping us since we started the business in 2006. They have helped us structure the business in the most tax-efficient way, advised on key person and buy/sell insurance and been a sounding board for the directors. They are far more than our tax accountant, offering business analysis and development as well as excellent customer service. We cannot recommend them highly enough.”
Martin Lane

Stanley & Williamson have always asked the right questions and been ready with the appropriate advice, while keeping within the compliance and tax laws.

These changes were recommended and explained in a dialogue and context that could be captured from management to staff and left little room for misinterpretation. While we have only used the auditing services of Stanley & Williamson, I have no hesitation in recommending any of the other accounting services they have on offer due to our experience to date.”

“During the past decade Michael and Quang have looked after and kept me well in relation to my various personal and business interests and investments. Their advice is practical and their attitude ‘no nonsense’. Their output has been accurate and timely and I have been very satisfied from a personal perspective. I have also been prepared to recommend Stanley & Williamson to my business clients and have worked closely with Michael, Quang and Darren, on behalf of my clients, to complete business or asset sales and acquisitions, or in advising in relation to business  structures or the day to day affairs of my business clients. The services provided by Stanley & Williamson to my business clients have been well received. I have no qualms in recommending Stanley & Williamson.”

He is clearly well informed and very service oriented. Due to the demands of my own business, I have little time for my own personal accounting. Michael and his staff understand this and respond accordingly. They are always proactive in meeting my accounting demands.”
Greg Turner
Principal at law firm

I rarely feel compelled to draft thank you notes for services received. However, in this case, I really wanted to express my gratitude for the help you provided (and are providing) with respect to my tax affairs. You and Thanh are excellent. Your knowledge is impressive and your personal skills are great. Feel free to pass on this message to anyone that may be interested in reading it. I highly recommend your firm.Andreas Fung, Director, Autumn 01 Pty Ltd

“We were introduced to Michael Goodrick at Stanley & Williamson in 2006 upon commencing a new business venture. My first impression of S&W was a professional accounting firm that would not be interested in a small engineering business. I was wrong. As time passed I was made to feel comfortable and complicated taxation and financial matters were explained to me in plain English. As each year has passed our business has grown around 15% every year, I believe through good advice and well planned tax systems allowing good cash flow and new equipment purchases. As tax laws are constantly changing we are kept up to date on the best options for our specific needs. In conclusion I would have the confidence to recommend S&W to anyone that requires professional financial advice.”
Andrew Rendell
Director, A1 Metaltech Pty Ltd

“We have always found the firm to be proactive, responsive and well versed in relation to the current regulatory requirements and standards. Our Management and Finance Teams regularly liaise with staff at Stanley & Williamson and always receive unfettered, timely access to specialised firm resources, including Senior Partners. The advice received is always professional, thoroughly researched and considered, whilst delivered in a friendly and genuinely supportive manner, and we have never found reason to question their integrity, nor their actions. We have come to trust their commitment and ethical compass implicitly.”

Managing Director, Wise McGrath Pty Ltd
