Specialised Accountants Creating Financial Success for Bundoora Businesses

Why the name... Chieftains? The answer is simple… a chieftain is a great contributor to an organisation. We know clients want guidance and that is what we offer in a rapidly changing business environment.

The Managing Director of Chieftains established the firm in 2008. Since then, we have rapidly become recognised as a trustworthy and helpful resource to small business. While most accounting firms just prepare annual financial statements and tax returns, this is not us. We aim to provide useful guidance for our clients during the year, ensure their business plan is linked to their exit and the owner is adequately accumulating toward their retirement. This is how we arrived at our tagline...

EMPOWER YOUR BUSINESS TO BETTER YOUR FUTURE

This means we must understand your business, provide our wider knowledge to help you make it better and then link your business exit plans to your future whether it be through a self-managed super fund or otherwise.
We have a strong ethic to deliver a prompt and outstanding service that helps clients beyond just giving numbers.
At Chieftains Chartered Accountants, we are committed to delivering individualised accounting services to small businesses with fewer than 20 employees in and around the Bundoora area. As experienced professionals in the field, we acknowledge that businesses with small pools of employees have very different accounting needs than bigger enterprises. We saw a hole in the market for an accounting firm that specialises in delivering first rate, individualised services to these kinds of businesses. It was from this that Chieftains Chartered Accountants was born.
Each member of our team has been handpicked based on their extensive knowledge and expertise in small business accounting. As locals ourselves, we understand the dynamics of the Bundoora area, giving us a unique insight into your financial needs. Our expert accountants are dedicated to really getting to know your business and your unique goals in order to tailor accounting services as needed.

For reliable, personable and expert accounting, make Chieftains Chartered Accountants your first choice. Contact us today to make an appointment with a member of our team.
