"Our family has been using C&N Accountants since 1990 and we have benefitted from having the same Client Manager for that entire period. Neetu and Clive have guided us through property acquisition, company formation, self-managed superannuation establishment and the annual tax obligations. Today, enjoying a very comfortable retirement I am so grateful that we had C&N Accountants recommended to us all those years ago."

"We have been clients of C&N since 2008. We have established companies and trusts through them and feel assured that our affairs are being handled professionally and skilfully with care and insight. As time has gone on, Neetu Shankar, our Client Manager, has competently prepared individual, trust, and FBT tax returns, provided invaluable assistance with accumulation and pension stages of our SMSF, liaised with SMSF auditing and prepared Minutes of Meetings and any other document required for compliance with the ATO, ASIC, banks, and other bodies.

We are always greeted cheerfully on the phone by Debbie Mooy, whose organisation is integral to good management of the Practice. Likewise, when we have the opportunity to chat with Clive Nelson or Neetu about our affairs, they respectfully address our questions and concerns, thoughtfully taking into account our circumstances."

"C&N Accountants were great to work with for both our business and personal tax affairs. Their communication was great and ability to answer all your questions in an efficient manner makes them very easy to work with. Would certainly recommend their services to other!

Just a note that we worked mainly with their Oatlands office, but from the way they work it seems looks like the quality of their work would be consistent across all their offices. Thanks again and we look forward to working with you :-)"
