Accountants and Business Advisers

I just want to congratulate you and PKF Adelaide on your service to clients and particularly your manager, Nick Lam.
I first came to see you at Kennedy’s (Kennedy & Co) as we were having issues with our accountant at that time, your straight talking attitude won me over immediately.
Since we have been clients we have only had one issue, this was dealt with immediately and with honesty.
The level of service that we have received from Nick Lam over the past few years has been exceptional. I have never dealt with an organisation that has continued to maintain such a high level of personal service to clients.
As a society we are always very quick to complain about bad service, however we are very slow to recognise and acknowledge exceptional service, so today we wish to acknowledge the exceptional ongoing service to us as clients by PKF Adelaide and in particular Nick Lam.
If your organisation has an honour board or a recognition/reward program, please place our nomination for Nick Lam to be recognised for his service to us as clients."

“PKF Newcastle recently assumed responsibility for Port Waratah Coal Services’ Internal Audit function. The quality of a firm is largely a direct reflection of the quality of the people that service their clients. We have now dealt with one of their partners Martin Matthews and his team for several years now. The team have offered a degree of professionalism, flexibility and a strategic approach to modern business risks that is innovative and refreshing. Having a senior Partner that takes a close interest in our business and is prepared to take a hands on role to understand pragmatically the real issues and work with Management to resolve them has developed and fostered an excellent professional partnership.” - Geoff Crowe, General Manager Commercial, Port Waratah Coal Services

We have had a relationship with PKF Brisbane for over 20 years. They have provided a full range of services over those years and we have enjoyed a good relationship.

I have always found the PKF Tamworth team to be responsive and careful in their dealings with our taxation matters. There have been many occasions when I have needed to call on assistance to understand what was needed of us or to address an issue that has arisen - you have ensured that we have had excellent advice, including at very short notice.
I also perceive the firm to have a good relationship with the tax office which is something I value.
Mark, I am so happy that when you moved to Tamworth years ago we decided to stay working with you. I’ve never felt that the distance has created the slightest issue and am grateful for your willingness to come to Sydney to meet with us if we thought that would be useful.
We look forward to continuing to work with you and the team at PKF.

Joe and I can’t thank Patrick and your team enough for the great work especially over these last several months as it’s been quite stressful.
The continued structuring and development within your company is truly an asset for people like Joe and I. We think ourselves very lucky to have such a great, happy team on our side. It is truly a blessing for us and has made life easier knowing that we have someone “watching our back” in the industries/areas we need. So thank you for creating such an amazing team.
Our partnership with Patrick is a lot more than just being our accountant and that is something quite special in itself.
With regards to the new business yes I am very excited and passionate, so busy making this a success.
Most definitely will come and visit you guys when I am down next.
Take care for now.
