    Hello Cordelia

    I'm not sure if this helps but for anything related to TAX from stockmarket trading you should visit a website called Tax Intelligence Solutions by Warren Black. Just google Tax Intelligence Solution or Warren Black and have a read, he is Perth based and a expert in this area. They may be able to direct to a good accountant, I'm not sure if they do tax returns.

    A young accountant in Perth?

    My accountant of over 7 years wants to retire next year so I'm looking around for a new accountant. Surprisingly, most of the good accountants are in their fifties and sixties. I don't mind them but I don't think they will be around in ten years time.

    My requirements:
    1. Most important is that the accountant must be a qualified CA or CPA
    2. A sole practice or small partnership with knowledge of share trading
    3. Preferably located in the northern suburbs of Perth

    Do you know a good accountant who is below 45 years old? PM me if you don't want to post details in general chat. Thanks.

    It would be easier to give you next weeks lotto numbers than fulfill the request you have put forward. :D

    Since we had two separate threads enquiring about Perth based accountants I thought we could merge the two and keep all the information together.

    Re: A young accountant in Perth?

    Indeed, I've been searching for the past week with no luck.

    Most young accountants in Perth are merely 'tax consultants' with no CA or CPA :(

    FYI the title 'accountant' is not regulated in Australia. In other words, anyone can call themselves an accountant even if they don't have the educational and professional qualifications.

    Most of the CPA's worth their salt usually are over 55's. Perth PLUS Northern Suburbs PLUS share savvy is a very difficult task.

    Try Peter Edwards & Associates. Guildford Road, Guildford. Medium practice with good reputation.

    No matter. He may have 6 or 8 CPA's underneath him. One specialising in SMSF's, another in FBT and maybe another in SHARES? Phone and ask? :eek:

    Or try Peter Edwards and Associates and ask for Pauline Howatson.

    He has 6 or 8 CPA underneath him? That's a huge firm by Perth standards :)

    I was looking for something a tad smaller. Thanks for your help.

    ACCOUNTANT REQUIRED

    I know this is a stab in the dark but would anyone based in the southern suberbs of Perth have an accountant they could recommend.
    Preferably with a smiddgen of experience with the stock market and who may even return your calls when you call and ask for advice.:banghead:

    Here's hoping,

    Re: ACCOUNTANT REQUIRED

    Give Zane Kenny a ring at BQK on 9256 2777, or email Zane@bqk.com.au
    He's been looking after me for over 10 years. Very switched-on.

    His office is in Canning Vale, corner Bannister/South St

    Thanks Pix,
    Had a look at their website,seem like the real deal and not too far from home either.
    Going to `interview`one David Femia tomorrow at Femia Associates in Applecross, came across them via http://www.quotify.com.au before your post came up.
    If they aren't up to scratch BQK may be next in line.

    Cheers,
    Sparfarkle

    Re: ACCOUNTANT REQUIRED

    Try Port Accounting in Fremantle - the tend to be geared more toward high net worth individuals, but they're very sensible folk. Kathal Spence is the main guy there from memory.
