Ian has the unique ability to see the challenges and opportunities faced by business people, assist with the options and solutions professionally and inspire others along the way. Ian’s desire to help others is what led him to accounting in the first place.

Familiar with and experienced in most aspects of accounting and business advice, Ian has moved to specialising in Property Investment Funds where he has built a strong and capable team.
Ian believes making great business and investments returns and keeping your tax costs down are critical to assist great business people. This is what he is extremely good at advising on. Having worked with so many clients, other advisors and specialists over the years, Ian’s experience is diversified and broad. Sharing this experience and knowledge keeps the desire to help others in business and is now becoming more focused on teaching what he knows.
Ian describes himself as caring, loyal and energetic. Modestly neglecting to acknowledge his patience, dedication and constant desire to help others reach their financial potential.
