Stephen joined the Belmores team in 2006 and brings a vast array of skills, ranging from taxation, structures, planning and management. Since coming on board Stephen has moved into a management role and uses this internally within the Belmores structure and externally with clients. Being a qualified Certified Practicing Accountant (CPA) has opened up connections to valuable resources and contacts.
Stephen's client base ranges from retail business, through to dairy and broad acre cropping; and covers a wide ranging geographic location spanning from Gippsland to Central NSW. A background in agriculture allows Stephen to connect with his clients on a detailed level and provide an understanding which lacks across many advisory positions.
The belief that accounting is far more than just numbers allows for broad reviews of business drivers, structures and trends. Formation of strong relationships and attention to all aspects his clients needs has driven the success and growth of his clients. Assisting with management and goal attainment has provided the opportunity to develop some of the premier businesses in the region.
A major objective is to assist his clients to set and obtain their goals; both financial and personal. A proven ability to take the most complex situations, tax and business matters and clearly explain and develop specific steps is a proven attribute of Stephens. An appetite for knowledge enables advice on the most current trends within the Accounting and broader industry environments.
