Want Group Accountants were established in the eastern suburbs of Sydney in 2011 to service the accounting and taxation needs of small and medium-size business owners.
Our aim is to provide excellence of service at all times. We keep true to our core values of respect, integrity and honesty with our staff, clients and parties that we may transact with and hope that they will treat us in the same way.
The principle, Steven Want has worked with and mentored many business owners since qualifying in 1999. His experience spans a vast variety of businesses, industries and professions. We have developed several niche areas within the firm including working with Sophisticated Investors, Generational Family Groups and Multiple Entity Structures.
Steven understands that ultimately clients have goals and aspire to achieve a certain lifestyle, whether it’s building a dream home or business, having the children attend a private school, taking family holidays, or planning for a comfortable retirement, our interest is to understand these aspirations and ask our clients “how can we help you get there faster”?
Being a pro-active firm we have responded to the changing needs of our clients and have shifted away from old desk-top practices to cloud-based automated processes. We have done this not only in our own firm but have helped our clients automate their own systems saving them loads of time! For example we now send documents for signing to our clients electronically, including BAS statements, year-end tax returns, etc. No more printing, signing by pen, scanning, filing, etc. This not only saves us time but our client love being able to sign documents from their mobile phone or tablet. We continue to look at ways to improve our own internal processes using latest technologies and are eager to help our clients do the same.
As a progressive firm we continually adopt the latest technology and systems and aim to support our clients in creating efficiencies in their accounting and reporting cycle. We believe in supporting our clients and their business every step of the way and for our larger clients we even provide CFO services and regular ‘board room’ style meetings to explain how their business is performing and benchmark them against their competitors.
Our core niche areas are working with Sophisticated Investors, Generational Family Groups and Multiple Entity Structures.
However, our clients have also spanned importers & wholesalers, retailers, tradespeople and professionals.
In addition, we provide specialist advice to business start ups and clients thinking of buying an investment property.
When it comes to retirement planning we also provide expertise in SMSF tax advice and we view wealth creation as an integral part of the tax planning process. Given our expertise in the superannuation area, the principle Steven Want has been a registered SMSF auditor for over 10 years and as such has an appreciation of issues in administering SMSFs. We have implemented sophisticated software for processing complex funds and specially in light of the myriad of changes to the SMSF environment, compliance in this area is more important than ever.
We are goals-focused and are committed to working with you to understand what’s important in your life.
