Fergus Bell, Accountant, is an accounting practice which provides compliance and advisory services for businesses, with particular specialisation in the area of primary production. That being said, we also cater to a broad range of clientele from the medical profession, building and construction industries, property investment sector and self funded retirees.
Fergus Bell is the sole Director, and after a fifteen year attachment to a Central Queensland accountancy firm decided it was time to commence his own business and tend to his client’s affairs in a manner that was in sync with his own personal values. So in January 2012, Fergus along with his wife Heather relocated to the Sunshine Coast hinterland, and then on to Lake MacDonald (near Cooroy) in September 2013.
Fergus’s principal philosophy is to do what is in the best interests of his clients, and so remain independent, but work with your other advisors such as your solicitor or financial planner in order to get the best possible outcome for you. Tax implications can often arise as a result of legal or financial planning advice, and vice versa, so it is important to consult your professional team as a whole if planning to undertake major changes or projects. Today we all seem to be bombarded with emails and letters about things we think we don’t need or haven’t asked for, and they all take time to digest. You won’t get this from Fergus Bell, Accountant, however if we see something that represents a risk to you or an opportunity for you, we’ll let you know about it, and can act as a sounding board for those things you are unsure of.
Advances in technology mean that it is now easier to manage our affairs from a distance, and these days we have clients in places like Papua & New Guinea, The Gulf, Western Queensland and Sydney. It isn’t all about technology though, as we still have clients that use a manual cashbook which is fine, because when the power goes out, they can soldier on!
We look forward to helping you get to where you want to go.
