What are your services? We help people plan for their and their family's future.
We explore and develop ﬁnancial choices and assist people in reaching their life
goals. Yes, we take care of tax and compliance issues, but our real interest and
passion is looking and planning for the future.
How long have you been in business? Symes Accountants has been in business
since 1986. I, personally, have been an owner since 2001.
To what do you attribute your success? Treating all people with the respect
they deserve and trying hard to offer the best possible service, being surrounded by
good people, both our team members and clients, and then listening and learning
from them all.
Absorbing business lessons around the family kitchen table when growing up – not
that I realised that at the time.
Being willing to learn and adapt to changing circumstances, and look to the future,
not just today.
What is it like having a business in Gawler? It is great, as I grew up in a
country town in the Riverland. For me it is an extension of living in the area
and being part of the local community. Not only are we able to help people be
successful and grow their businesses, we employ local people and contribute in
many other ways as well.
What is the best part of your job? Meeting with clients and discussing their
goals, and then working with them to achieve these by using and implementing
strategies we have come up with.
Training and mentoring team members and to see them grow into conﬁdent,
knowledgeable people and be willing to learn and improve themselves.

Matthew said he is both excited
and grateful for the opportunity.

"This is definitely a chance of a
lifetime and one I wouldn't miss."
Matthew and the three other
participants attended the Gawler
