CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

I was referred to Mark Caruso from my previous accountant, the service and attention to detail that has provided for my business Earth Healing Therapies has been excellent. Mark has helped me understand a lot more of my business, so I can continue with what I love doing creating and making beautiful natural pet products.

I have trusted Steve Creelman with my personal and business accounting since he started his accounting practice. Steve keeps pace with changes in investment and taxation law so that I can be confident that I am not missing out on any opportunities. Steve is decidedly ‘hands on’ which means that I never have to worry about being neglected.

I hope never to have to use another accountant.

Andrew Wood

Dear Steve,

We wish to put on record our appreciation for the guidance and assistance you have provided in the furtherance of our financial affairs and compliance with our taxation obligations.  The requirements of the law continue to increase over time and become ever more complex.  Your contribution has ensured our financial affairs progress whilst continuing to comply with the law in every respect – for this we are grateful.

With regards,

Graham and Barbara Jackson

We have engaged SC Financial Services as our external tax agent and business consultant prior to establishing our current business.

I have been a client of SC Accounting for about six years. Their service has always been accurate and timely. They have assessed my private financial affairs and my superannuation affairs carefully and have provided me with many useful proposals to improve my financial situation.

The annual reports and Tax Reports they provide are excellent.

I have no hesitation in recommending them to others.

Charlie Sheridan

Orthodontist and Business owner

We have been clients of Steve Creelman since the early 1990’s. Initially associated with our annual income tax, but then providing management, financial and budgeting support to my child care business, Young Melbourne which we owned from 1996 to 2000. His attention to detail and understanding of the tax laws as well as his knowledge associated with the child care industry helped us focus on business growth, targets and KPI’s. I have found Steve and his team at SC Accounting to be very knowledgeable and approachable now as a self-funded retiree with my own SMSF.

Mark has been a breath of fresh air in the sense that he made me feel safe and comfortable to receive his help with my tax returns. I was nervous, as I had been putting it off for so long! But felt instantly at ease with Mark.

I felt I could trust him with my information, and his guidance has been priceless!

Mark has offered me business guidance which has made me feel supported during a challenging time, and I am grateful to have him in my corner!!

Thank-you Mark for everything you are doing for the community. And for being so supportive of my mission and my business.
