Why the name Chieftains?

The answer is simple. A chieftain is a great contributor to an organisation. You
have access to the help and guidance you need.

The Managing Director of Chieftains established the firm in 2008. We have diligently operated to assist clients to the best outcome and gained a strong reputation for knowledge, reliability and trust.

We understand that you don’t just want numbers. Our desire is to do more than simply prepare your annual financial statements and tax returns well after the financial year has ended. You need to be on top of the numbers, as they occur during the year, so you can make meaningful, informed and timely decisions for your business. We have built our signature accounting solution to achieve this objective.
