ALY GARRETT | Founder | Principal

When I grow up I wanna be…

 

Princess consuela banana hammock

A Ballerina

A Superhero

 

✔ An Accountant (which, for someone like Aly, is basically all of the above combined). 

 

It might be hard to believe but ever since she can remember, Aly knew she wanted to be an accountant. In 1994 (remember the 90s?) fresh out of uni, Aly stepped into her first accountancy firm and hasn’t looked back. 

 

Since that fateful day, she’s worked with businesses big and small, as well as family run companies, developing and honing, and perfecting her (mad), accounting, taxation and advisory skills, as well as finding a love (an ever enduring crush) for working with and for the hospitality and tourism industries. 

 

Speaking of l-o-v-e, with 30 years experience, Aly is all about supporting small businesses to reach their full potential, build value and wealth, and see success for generations to come. 

 

The biggest barrier for small businesses? Being bogged down by the back end! Reports, payroll, systems appropria…. **yawn**

 

You get it. So does Aly. And she’s here to help.

LEE DUFFIELD | General Manager

When I grow up I wanna be…

 

A maths teacher (during the week)

A hairdresser (on the weekends)

 

✔ And yet here she is as a Master of Tax.  I guess the Math led her here, haha, but please don’t let her anywhere near your hair!

 

Fifteen years and counting for this accounting whiz, working with family biz of every size to keep their compliance in tip top shape, get their tax structures singing and self-managed superannuation funds kicking goals.

 

She is currently crushing on construction, and she knows it inside and out, we don’t call her Lethal Lee for nothing (heads up she also has a second insta for all things construction … yes we know, totally cool accounting nerd right there). 

 

Lee can get your biz humming and overflowing with efficiencies, real time reporting, a cloud tech stack to die for and her impeccable advisory. Like seriously, you can’t ask for more!
