Peter & Prue Johnstone, Client

Our company has been using Craig as our external accountant since inception. Craig is skilled, responsive, organised and efficient. As a small business owner, the role of the accountant is so crucial in assisting with rules and regulations around tax, superannuation, and the law, and Craig has been an invaluable resource for me in interpreting and acting on these needs.
