Louise Symonds – Bachelor of Commerce Newcastle University. Chartered Accountant. NTAA Xero Certified
Louise has worked in management for a number of large corporate businesses such as Australia Post and Coral Princess Cruises in North Queensland. She’s also worked as a tax and business advisor for public accounting firms in Toowoomba and Townsville.
When she’s not helping clients achieve their business goals she’s a member of Bonville Sawtell Lions Club; she has bungy jumped off the Auckland Bridge in 2013 and went to see the formidable Oprah in December 2015. Louise has three children, Mark, Greg and Rebecca, and a dog, Ramsay.
Louise moved to Coffs Harbour in January 2000 where she had a few years being a mum, playing golf badly and lecturing at Southern Cross University.
She started the practice in 2003 and at that time was the first female as a sole practitioner in the area. She also had never been employed by any local firm in the area so her client base had to be grown from hard work and personal reputation.
Having experienced a diverse background in public, commercial and statutory organisations, Louise adds value to her accountancy service. She’s very easy to talk with and quickly relates to her clients at their comfort level. Above all, Louise gains genuine pleasure helping her clients navigate quickly and easily through the maze of tax legislation.
