STEVE & TANYA MONEGHETTI

  • During my marathon career, I learned that results only come with planning and hard work. I also realised I needed people to support me so I could focus on being the best athlete I could be. From the beginning Stephen Smith – now a partner in Smith & Jennings – took care of all my business affairs including negotiating contracts, sponsorships, taxation and investments. To this day Tanya and I remain clients of Smith & Jennings because we know they have our best interests at heart and provide advice we can rely on. The personal care and attention provided over many years has been second to none. They are a very professional firm but with a down to earth approach. I am grateful they have been there to support me and my family for the long run

 LOCKS CONSTRUCTION

  • Because our building business involves three separate families, it is vital we used a business structure that would meet our needs both in the immediate and longer term. Almost 15 years later, the advice from Smith & Jennings on our structure has proved to be very sound and has stood the test of time – despite changing legislation and our changing circumstances. Over that time, we have received reliable and timely advice from Smith & Jennings, whether assisting with asset purchases, interstate builder registrations, financial data for tenders or our income tax, GST and SMSF compliance work. Smith & Jennings are a much valued source of professional advice to our business and also our respective families.

SUMMERFIELD WINES

  • We want our accountants and business advisors to be as passionate about helping their clients as we are about the wine we make. We have definitely found that in the team at Smith & Jennings. They have helped get our business better organised with systems and reporting so we now have close control of our costs. Sure they do all our annual compliance work, but the greatest value we receive is from the ongoing advice they provide – accurate and beneficial to our business. To know we can phone when we have a problem to discuss or an idea to bounce around is reassuring and helps us continue to improve our business. We think of them as our mentors rather than our accountants.

LYNNE REES PODIATRY

  • Because I run my own professional practice, I need my accountants to take care of the business side of things so I can focus on providing the best care possible to my patients. Smith & Jennings have since 1998 assisted me and my family with reliable and friendly support, taking care of income tax and GST returns in a very efficient and friendly manner, and assisting with sound business advice and annual tax planning strategies. They have also provided us with valuable financial advice for our super and wealth creation strategies. Based on my experience Smith & Jennings help make running a business so much easier.

GRAINTECH ENGINEERING

  • I started in my own business in 2011 when I was 23. For that reason I needed accountants who were savvy with business and could give me the guidance I needed. Smith & Jennings have given me all of that and much more. I have a factory in Ballarat which now employs about 20 staff but I need to travel across Australia almost weekly to visit customers and check progress on our contracts. Smith & Jennings assisted me to set up job costing and cloud reporting so I can see progress in my factory no matter where I happen to be. They have assisted me with R&D issues and I have regular phone contact with Smith & Jennings advisors – and I love the fact that if my advisor is not available, I get a very prompt call back. But most of all I value the advice I receive and that has played a vital role in me being able to expand my business in the way that I have.

They are a valued source of business advice, and have the ability to make complex issues appear simple. Although we live on our farm in Gippsland, Smith & Jennings have made it easy to communicate and get things done. Whether its taxation returns, corporate secretarial or business advice, the prompt and friendly service we receive means we can focus on running our farm.
