Alan has over 40 years experience in the accounting and business advisory industry and provides advice on:

  • Accounting, Income Tax and related financial issues

  • Business Planning and Coaching

Alan started his career with what is now known as PriceWaterhouseCoopers auditing and providing advice to some of the largest businesses in Australia. Alan then moved onto the Financial Controller role with a large utility enterprise where he was custodian of a business plan with over 20,000 employees. His role focused on financial and efficiency reviews of the various business units within the organization. Following this Alan moved to Ocean Horizons where he would take control of failed businesses that were in administration and turn them around in order for the bank to sell them on.

Alan has since been in public practice for almost 30 years advising a range of businesses in both size and industries. He has helped many of these to grow through teaching them the fundamentals of business planning. He has sat on the boards of many companies and has also assisted in getting businesses ready for sale and succession planning. Alan is also called upon to provide expert advice to the Australian Law Courts, particularly in relation to Business Valuations.

Alan has also served on numerous National Tax Committees and National and State Committees of the Institute of Chartered Accountants.
