Excellent understanding of the issues encountered by health practitioners and their practices

John Barrett has been managing my personal, trust and company tax affairs for over five years. His knowledge and professionalism are second to none. When John left another firm and founded Transcend Accounting, I had no hesitation in following him to the new business as I had a great deal of confidence in his expertise and understanding of the day-to-day operations of my business.

John is always happy to answer any query I have and he has an excellent understanding of the issues encountered by health practitioners and their practices. John has come up with some innovative ways for us to benchmark practice performance that has not been suggested by our previous accountants.

We have an experienced bookkeeper who has also benefited from John’s advice and she has incorporated some of his suggestions in the bookkeeping work she does for other companies. I happily recommend John and Transcend Accounting to any of my colleagues.

I'll be a client for life

I am a sole trader and my business grew really quickly in the last year. I had been seeing an accountant for my annual tax return and I always felt there was something missing... especially after receiving a ginormous tax bill!  A friend told me about John and said he was the best in the biz, so I met with him to see for myself. Not only did John pick up some MAJOR errors with my previous return, and save me close to 10K... I am now expecting money back from all the GST returns that had never been done. I feel SO grateful to John, he went above and beyond to help me through the process, and gave me amazing advice. Finally I actually feel relaxed about my finances, and I know that there is someone looking after me that cares and isn't just in it for a buck. After all the grief John saved me, I told my family that naturally I'll name my first born after him! A weight has been lifted - thanks so much, John, for carrying it for me. HIGHLY RECOMMEND... especially if you're a small business owner and want someone you can trust on your team for the long term.  I'll be a client for life.

I now have much better vision over the finances on a weekly basis

John’s contribution with us at Australian National Couriers has been monumental. I now have much better vision over the finances on a weekly basis, he has been very pro-active to get processes in place and I can see the Accounts team have come on board with an understanding of what an admin team is there for. John’s background experience has shone through.

The process was so supportive and John didn’t miss a thing!

BEST ACCOUNTANT! I am grateful to be referred to John recently, I was in desperate need of a good accountant that would review my business and help set me on the right path with all things tax (it’s not my strong point) The process was so supportive and John didn’t miss a thing!

Has always been prepared to 'go the extra mile'

John Barrett has acted as our accountant for the best part of ten years. During this time, he has consistently demonstrated his skills as a knowledgeable and trustworthy accountant. He has always been prepared to 'go the extra mile' and follow up on more complex questions, as well as be flexible and very helpful when needed. We would highly recommend him as an accountant who operates in a very sincere and professional manner.

The time and effort he invested was second to none

I went through John Barrett for my both my Fiancée's and my tax return, and I could not speak more highly of the professionalism, attention to detail and the effort displayed by John. The time and effort he invested was second to none. I will refuse to go to anyone else from now on.
