As many of you would now be aware we have let Lynne Jenkin go. We know Lynne was popular with clients however, regardless of how much training and assistance we provided, Lynne struggled with modern accounting practices and software, including MYOB and Quickbooks, as well as not being competent with tax advice. Ultimately, Allison and I are responsible for any advice or work performed by our staff and we need to ensure that a high standard is met to comply with the Tax Practioners Board and CPA Australia.
We felt it was in the best interest of our business as well as our clients to let Lynne move on. We aim to provide the very highest standard of accounting and tax advice and as such we need staff that can adapt to the constant changes that are occurring within the tax system as well as the digital age which the ATO is now operating in. To maintain this standard we are introducing a policy that all our accounting staff have, or be in the process of, undertaking a formal accounting qualification of at least a Diploma level. This is in line with expectations of the Tax Practioners Board which requires Tax and BAS agents to have formal qualifications that are regularly updated.
We understand that loyalty, rapport and trust are important with your accountant but we also believe it is important to have an accountant that can provide accurate and timely advice.
