Client Sucess Stories

Our Proudest Moments

After years of frustration with my previous accountant, a friend of mine recommended I give CAAA a call. I’m glad I did. When I first met Fleming, I could see he took an active interest in me and my business, and unlike other firms I’ve been with, that feeling has never changed. We’ve had a great relationship for over 5 years now and I know he’s always looking out for me. Fleming is very efficient, very consistent, personable, and will always take your call. Above anything else, it’s the tax strategies that CAAA provide me with that I love. I think that CAAA is very ‘in the know’ with what’s happening, and it always benefits the client.

Since coming across to Commercial Associates, we no longer have to ask direct questions to get the answers we need. They are very proactive and forthcoming when giving advice which has been terrific and very refreshing. When we purchased another company in our industry from its foreign owners 18 months ago, CAAA were always available whenever we called and made the process of bringing the organisations together a whole lot easier. CAAA also provided timely and valuable advice on the impacts of consolidating the two companies.

Having been with our previous accountant for over 20 years I was initially a little sceptical on whether Commercial Associates would be as receptive and responsive to our needs. However, the transition was seamless and Andrew and Fleming really made us feel part of the family after just a matter of months and the service we receive continues to be at the high level it has always been. Without having to go to the additional expense of a big 4 firm, our access to resources and opportunities has been greatly enhanced both for the Bright Group and for the personal situations of each of our directors. An excellent fit for our growing business.

You’ve done wonders with my cash.

These guys are wizards with SMSF. They gave me a structure that fit with my business and helped me achieve my goal of acquiring properties.

Planning was hugely important to us at that early stage and Commercial Associates were there for us straight away. They didn’t put us off until tomorrow or next week sometime and were really receptive to our needs there and then. Paul gave us a lot of insight on how the company should be structured, contracts should be drafted, and the parameters of the warranties. All the information was easy to understand and the strategies and ideas they presented have helped to significantly reduce our taxes while at the same time, they formalised everything with our banks to satisfy their requirements.
