About us

Blaze Acumen Chartered Accountants was founded in 2004 by a like-minded and diverse team of professional advisors. That team has grown such that our combined Chartered Accounting experience exceeds 200 years. We share a passion for delivering excellence in taxation, accounting and financial advice to an established group of successful business, corporate and private clients.

Whilst the volume and complexity of our clients and their needs has grown over the years, our approach to partnering and achieving excellence in outcomes has not.

Long term relationships built on trust and mutual respect have enabled Blaze Acumen to focus and deliver on fully considered strategies and outcomes. For corporates, this means considering the needs of all stakeholders (including the shareholders and management team). For high net wealth individuals and family groups, we take into account not only your investment or business needs but also, and most importantly, those of you and your family.

Importantly, many of our senior staff have worked together for more than 20 years, bringing together technical expertise and resources equal to that of larger firms. Blaze Acumen is an AFR Accounting Top 100 accounting firm.

 

“Our role is to add value… that’s an absolute.”

 

Our firm’s business philosophy is to provide high quality advice and assistance to successful business, corporate and private clients. One of the advantages of our firm is that our focus is on putting the client first. In doing so, the Partners and senior staff take a very “hands on” approach and are very accessible. In addition to being accessible, we are accountable for our services and stand by the advice that we provide to our clients.

As accountants and advisers we want to develop long-term relationships with our clients based on ongoing communication and contact, so that we become or further enhance our role as the “trusted adviser”.

Our network and access to business professionals in the banking, legal and investment advisory fields is also available to our clients, which allows us to be involved in areas that fall outside of the traditional accounting and tax service offering. We pride ourselves on our ability to add significant value to our clients through lateral thought, ongoing communication and being proactive.

In many cases Blaze Acumen will also work closely with your other advisors to help form a co-ordinated team approach toward a range of commercial services including investing, financing and estate planning, leaving you free to do what you do best.

We would welcome the opportunity to demonstrate to you how the Blaze Acumen team can become a proactive and valuable partner in achieving the financial and business outcomes you desire.

Our network

Quite often, a client’s needs will require specialist input from external providers to assist us (or the client directly) in achieving a desired outcome.

Over our years together at Blaze Acumen, we have developed a network of external resources in which we have absolute confidence. A confidence based on a proven track record and delivering, not just once, but consistently over many years. It would be fair to say we partner with like-minded firms, large or small.

 

“What we bring to the table… a professional team and an exceptional network.”

 

In some cases those services may be allied or independent, either way, the relationships we have developed over many years are able to be used to your advantage.
