As a young business person in the mid 1960’s I engaged WCA as my accountants. Fast forward almost 50 years they are still my accountant. Since this time I have found them to be always professional, genuinely interested in my affairs, generous with sound advice, obliging to the point that a representative of the firm always got back to me, and the staff always have a cheery smile for you.
We operate a diverse and complex group of businesses which requires expert and reliable accountancy, taxation, superannuation and business assistance and support. For some years these services have been provided to us in a competent and professional manner by WCA. This firm has highly skilled personnel and the necessary backup systems. The honesty and integrity of the firm are above reproach.
WCA are integral to our business’s success. We appreciate their dedication and their professional and prompt service. We are fortunate to have such a reliable and trustworthy firm of accountants here on the North Coast and we will continue to recommend them to others. They are also willing to visit us at our business which is refreshing and which further indicates their genuine interest in our business.
As a small business owner I think it’s vital to get the right advice and to make things work for you to get the best tax advantage and best return possible! I have tried various places over time and felt like no one wanted to do the extra work to help get the most out of all the hard work we put in as a business owner. These guys go above and beyond to help! Highly recommend!
WCA offers a full suite of tailored and highly customisable products and services that are capable of growth and change, just like you are. From our ongoing strategic and investment advice, to wealth protection and planning advice, estate planning and everything in between, WCA will keep you on track.
