Lynch & Associates have been our accountants since 2018. Through that time their friendly and approachable team have guided us and made good, clear recommendations for our theatre company for children. Their support and advice continue to help create a stronger, more sustainable charitable organisation.

We have used Lynch and Associates services for over 15 years and have always found them to be a very friendly, helpful and professional team. They also really care about us and our business, as they went out of their way to assist us during difficult times. We have also used their professional business services that proved invaluable in helping us to get through a rough patch and refocus our efforts. Their approach to business services was understanding of our situation but well blended with firm encouragement to address issues and make strides towards improvement. We highly recommend them for both their accounting and professional business services.

Darryn Smith, Director, Multicolour Screen Printers Limited

A huge “Thank You” and shout out to the team at Lynch & Associates for all the consulting and accounting services they have done for my wife and I over the past 12 years. The team have work diligently on both trusts and a number of companies for us over this time and long may this continue. It is so great to engage with a professional proactive team that results in no sudden surprises at the end of the tax period. We look forward to the catching up soon and hearing what is new and how else we can move forward faster financially.

John and Shelley Bishop 

North Shore Riding for the Disabled is one of 50 RDA Groups across the country. Our previous auditor resigned suddenly and we were left searching for a new firm to handle our work. Errol Burn at Lynch & Associates stepped straight into the situation and we could not be more delighted with the way in which our subsequent audit was managed. Timely, insightful and always available, we could not be more pleased and look forward to a long relationship – indeed, we were more than happy to recommend them to our National Body when their audit was taken to the market.

We believe in putting people first and sharing our knowledge and experience to help our clients achieve success in business and life. If you think we could be a good fit for your accounting needs, please get in touch.
