Thanks McNamara and Co you are the first accountant service I have used and it has taken the stress out for me completely. So I will be sure to come for you for advice again.

Ben Cooper - Pixelrodeo

I have been working with Tanya and Liam for quite a few years now after having several accountants before hand I am so glad I was put on to them. I run a medium size business and they have saved me endless amounts of stress. They are extremely helpful and at the top of their field which allows me to operate at the peak of my business. Whenever I have a question they are there straight away to help things run so smoothly. They came highly recommended to me and I highly recommend them to anyone that wants to make life easier and stress free.

Russell McSly - King of Courts

The team at McNamara & Company have looked after my organisation for several years and have been extremely helpful and generous with their time and services provided. The entire team is very friendly and professional and we couldn't recommend them more. They are always quick to help and are very easy to get in touch with. We use them for our financial statements and tax requirements.

IASRB Coordinator

We changed to McNamara and Co earlier this year, at a time when we needed our finances up to date, with the added pressure of a limited deadline.  Liam, Tanya and Fatma delivered, and continue to support.
• Continual up-dates on all COVID 19 business advice
• Pre- end of financial year meeting
• Ongoing assistance maintaining our accounting system.
We are very pleased to have made the move; I would highly recommend the team at McNarmara & Co. Accountancy.

Through the Business Advisory Service Liam assists us to analyse the performance of our business and challenges us to set goals and implement strategies to achieve them. The support we receive from Liam, Tanya and Fatma is always professional and prompt and has been invaluable to growing our business. It's a great working relationship.

Mandy Hean

McNamara and Co have been invaluable in assisting us with taxation and accounting compliance, particularly with enabling us to navigate the complexities and specifics of the R&D Tax Incentive on three yearly returns. Without their work, the process of registering for and ultimately receiving our tax concessions would have been daunting. Their efforts have allowed us to concentrate on our core business, comfortable that our accounting requirements are being taken care of.

Fenn Bailey and Tom Howard

Prior to McNamara and Co our accounting systems were messy. They meet with us on a regular basis to keep things under control. We have also used them to grow - increasing the cashflow, profitability and revenue of our business.

Trent – Electrician

Liam helped me to establish my SMSF and provides me with the accounting services I need to ensure I meet my statutory and tax obligations. Liam, Tanya and Fatma have helped me to navigate the complex tax and accounting requirements of buying the properties inside my SMSF. They also liaised with my lawyers and Lender to ensure the process was seamless.

L B

I've been very happy with Liam and the team at McNamara & Co over the last few years and would recommend them.

Chris Northwood

Liam and his team have helped our business tremendously. He has given us an amazing insight to our business which has increased our profit and given as a lot of clarity overall. I find Liam professional, concise and very responsive and would highly reccomend his services.

Ben Castelluccio

Scared of Accountants? Do numbers freak you out? No really. Would you rather stick pins in your eyes than do tax? Fear no more.. as my Accountants for the last 5 years (after moving away from a large firm) both Tanya and Liam take the stress out of every aspect of your business - the day to day and growth strategies if that is your thing. Not to mention they have a great network of amazing people to help you every step of your financial journey. It helps that they are both all round lovely people that genuinely want to see the success of their clients. Now I do not 'refer' people lightly and UNLESS they fit my profile of pure awesomeness and i believe in this instance it would simply be unfair of me (utter selfishness actually) if i didn't share my thoughts and refer them. You can thank me later :)
