Wideline Windows & Doors became a client of Leenane Templeton Chartered Accountants at the beginning of 2014.

We engaged the services of Leenane Templeton after the providers we had previously appointed, no longer had the required resources to appropriately service our growing business’s needs. After interviewing several Accountancy firms we decided Leenane Templeton had the experience and people to support us through our growth phase.

Over the past 2 years we have enjoyed dealing directly with one person, Andrew Frith, who now feels like an extension of our business and part of the Wideline family.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Andrew or Leenane Templeton.

We have a small import and distribution business and our books were in a mess from a previous accountant.

Leenane Templeton initially ironed out these significant issues so we had a clean set of books to work with and plan the business moving forward.
Additionally, they worked with us to plan our taxes for the coming year and then helped with tax payment planning to ensure we stay in front, so I feel we’re in a better position both from business planning and compliance perspectives. They’re easy to talk to and practical to work with so we don’t feel lost in accountant/tax language.

I’d be happy to recommend their services to other businesses and I look forward to continuing the relationship well into the future.

This is the second year that I had my Tax done by Liam. He is very professional and took the extra time at the end of the meeting to offer some fantastic advice on buying / owning a home which I am in the process of doing. I would have no hesitation in recommending Liam (which I have done so already)

Leenane Templeton assisted me in exiting one business and starting up a new one. Joel Griffiths provided timely, professional advice through the process and took an empathetic approach to my situation, which represented a significant change. Joel has continued to provide sound professional advice through the growth of the new business while continuing to provide assistance with my personal tax and finance matters. Joel has been easy to talk to and takes a genuine interest in his business relationships. Leenane Templeton provides the expertise and resources to meet my needs both now and in the future. I would have no hesitation in recommending Leenane Templeton and have already recommended to other associates who were equally happy with the advice and service they received.

We consider that it is essential to have an Accountant with whom we can work, one who thoroughly understands our business and works as an extension of our team.  Leenane Templeton fit this need.  We have found them to be proactive in their assistance and excellent in their technical delivery.  They are a valued partner in our day to day activities.

I have no hesitation in recommending them.

Liam showed considerable foresight in having most of the tax form completed before our appointment. We needed help with Capital Gains and this was completed in a very satisfactory manner. Highly recommended.

We engaged Leenane Templeton to look after our rapidly growing company as we needed someone we could trust to look after all our business financials and tax requirements.

They listened and understood our business plan and personal goals and later assisted in the sale of our company helping make the sale and changeover as smooth as possible.

I now have Andrew Frith and his team managing my personal investment portfolio which he regularly answers all of my questions and explains various tax related issues in a meaningful way which allows me to understand the concepts.

I would recommend Leenane Templeton to any person or business that is looking for a personalised professional service.

Leenane Templeton’s support has allowed us to grow our company to 4 divisions and also tripled our personal wealth and property portfolio.

Running my own business we are fairly time poor but wanted to develop a plan to ensure we were secure for the future.  Leenane Templeton chartered accountants and business advisory team meet with me on a quarterly basis to measure and monitor key performance indicators that have been identified to help grow my business.

A cashflow analysis was also developed which gave us the confidence to push the boundaries much further than we thought possible and in a controlled manner.  The team at Leenane Templeton also break the complexities down to a common sense approach.

We have found that all team members are approachable and they take a real interest in all aspects of the business as if it were their own.

I was also keen to ensure my personal finances were in good shape, and being young, superannuation didn’t interest me at all!  I met with Andrew Frith from Leenane Templeton Wealth Management and he broke down how we could utilise our super to create wealth at a faster rate. He also developed a 2 point plan, one focused on getting us to our goal of $100k passive income quickly, the other for the transitional phase into retirement. The support supplied has tripled our personal wealth and property portfolio.

We would definitely recommend Leenane Templeton to other business owners or individuals looking for tax, financial planning or superannuation advice and have recommended a number of people who are already benefiting.

We will be using Leenane Templeton on an ongoing basis for all of our businesses and personal affairs.

Leenane Templeton were always there to help and give guidance” 

Congratulations on the Australian Small Business Award for Professional Services.  We can relate to this because Leenane Templeton were always there to help and give guidance when we had our business.  In fact they were there for us from the very beginning of our group of companies and encouraged  us to “have a go”.

“The company worked out to be VERY successful”

“My experiences with Leenane Templeton spans 15 years of  business and personal financial services.”

I am delighted to say that at the strategic and operational levels their service and advice has delivered the best outcomes for my business and personal needs. From structuring the business at start up stage, operational accounting/financial services during growth stages and  helping to plan and execute exit strategies, their support and advice has been crucial to our success.

I have also been delighted with the personal superannuation services and will continue to seek their on going support.  The friendly, professional style of Chris and Andrew flows through the company and has a great cultural influence across all staff.  

I highly recommend Leenane Templeton to anyone seeking the range of services they offer.”

Leenane Templeton revolutionised the way that our business operated – Our business was growing but as turnover was increasing our profit was falling, and we couldn’t identify why.   They helped us to see the areas of our business that were making money and the areas that were losing money, he gave us the confidence to make decisions and to strategically grow our business.

Leenane Templeton identified all of the key drivers in our business, including the percentage limits for cost of sub contractors, labour costs and many other areas.  This ensured that we fully understood our business including which quote was profitable and which was not.  Our other competitors may have to cut corners to keep the price low impacting on the quality of work, however we were able to ensure that our customers received a great service whilst we still made money.”

I just wanted to say that since I’ve come over to Leenane Templeton chartered accountants the service has been nothing but brillant, it gives me confidence in my business to move forward knowing that with only a phone call to your office the help is there. All the staff that I have met are very polite and professional but I must say that my personal accountant Joel Griffiths is fantastic. I brought a business that was suffering and going nowhere but with Joel just a call away I had no problems in overcoming any hurdles I encountered, that man is a Champion, thank you Joel.

Liam is always well prepared for our appointments, provides us with useful advice and looks for opportunities to improve our financial situation. We are very comfortable with him managing our tax affairs, as we are with Andrew providing financial advice when we need it. We have already recommended Leenane Templeton to a number of our friends and colleagues when it has been appropriate to do so, and will continue to do this in the future.

I have been associated with Leenane Templeton and Andrew Frith since the formation of the company in 2000.  I followed Andrew  and Chris from their previous employer when they established Leenane Templeton.

Andrew has provided me with both personal and business financial advice for the past 13 years. More recently, since early 2011, Andrew has been SMSF advisor to both myself and my wife as we rolled our institutional superannuation into our own self managed  super funds.

In all our dealings with Andrew we have been impressed with his professionalism and knowledge, and ability to explain things to us in plain English. Nothing has been too much trouble to him, even after hours and on weekends, whenever we have had any questions on our super funds or looking for financial advice.

We have recently moved our existing super funds into pension funds on Andrew’s advice, continuing to top up our SMSFs while we are still working.

We have no hesitation in recommending Andrew to our friends – our only regret is that we did not talk superannuation with Andrew much earlier.

J WatsonWatson Mining Management
We have had our business accounting needs managed by Leenane Templeton since the founding of the company, throughout that time we have been very pleased with the exemplary service and attention to detail  that we have experienced.

We have been offered a guiding hand in managing our financial situation which gave us the comfort to know that in whatever direction we wanted to take our company we were receiving sound financial advice that was abreast of current legal requirements and always had our best interest at heart.

Leenane Templeton has looked after all our needs –this has included personal tax arrangements,  management of a Trust and assistance with the growth of our company so that we have been able to successfully organise and plan for our retirement needs.

The team is always friendly and interested in helping solve whatever problem occurs. We have formed a strong personal relationship with the team who look after us and would not hesitate to recommend Leenane Templeton to anyone looking for accounting services and guidance.

Graham and Karen
Our first contact with the firm was when we were about to retire. Andrew Frith gave advice and set us up with a Self Managed Super Fund.  We are very happy about the efficiency with which this was set up and the ongoing performance of the fund.  The way Andrew first sought our investment style and goals we had for our fund was excellent.  The SMSF was set up and continues to run with little input from us which gives us plenty of time to enjoy our retirement.

I would also like to recommend the services of Stephanie Dooley, Financial Services Administration Co-ordinator.  Stephanie has always been punctual in getting back to us and efficient in the services she provides for us.  She is an ever pleasant first contact person for us at Leenane Templeton. Stephanie is certainly an asset to the company.

As someone who is completely clueless when it comes to tax, I am made to feel comfortable and well (enough) informed. In my two years of coming to Leenane Templeton , I have been given some great advice on how to run and grow my business. Your company makes tax time feel stress free and I have never once felt judged about my lack of financial understanding.  10/10
