I became a client of Peter Roberson’s at Accrue following a recommendation from a fellow medical colleague. Peter helped me greatly with the establishment of the business structure for my new practice, dealing with the ATO, arranging a Xero bookkeeper and insurance broker and much more. I’m more than happy with the continued advice and support I receive from Peter and Accrue. It gives me comfort knowing when I hand over my tax work to Accrue it is going to be completed in a professional and competent manner.

I am very happy to provide a testimonial about the quality of Peter Roberson’s work as an accountant, his professionalism and his personal qualities.

Peter’s personal characteristics include being innovative and reliable with organizational skills that are supported by attention to detail, being fully trustworthy and having great communication skills. He can effectively embrace the challenges of and efficiently respond to changes in working environments.

Peter focuses on the client with a level of finesse and enthusiasm which results in a well-placed trust in his ability and professionalism. In particular he shows a willingness to keep vital information confidential at all times which is a simple measure of his professionalism. Peter is understanding of and empathetic to the highs and lows of an individual’s personal finance, incorporating an appreciation of the personal deep-seated issues that can impact on client finances, and does so with a strong sense of integrity.

Peter’s professional work practices include a strong orientation toward meeting client requirements within that professional framework, sustained by knowledge about regulations and legislative requirements. He has a comprehensive understanding of business and personal financial management practices, accounting procedures and functions; also the nuances of tax law which appear to be continually subject to change at any time. He puts the effort into understanding and then implementing the continual flow of legislation changes. Moreover, Peter can efficiently impart his expertise to clients and to the professional decision-makers within the Australian Taxation Office.

Peter shows a great deal of diligence and level-headedness and so is an individual with whom it is a pleasure to interrelate.

Don and the team at Accrue have been much more than external accountants for us over the years, they’ve been an integral part of our team.

Shane Fracchia

(COO/CFO, Brown Consulting (2009-2013))

Mergers and acquisitions is often a complex and challenging area for any business, with few finance and business advisers having a practical understanding of the critical business and financial implications of getting it wrong. I have worked with Don for almost 5 years engaging him (with the support of the Accrue Team) to assist at every stage of a number of small to medium sized acquisitions (up to $72m). Don provided an exceptional level of service and delivered outcomes and value far beyond our expectations. He is a consummate professional with a high level of financial knowledge, business acumen and management experience. In the truest sense of the words, he was very much a respected trusted advisor and strategic partner for Brown Consulting. I would strongly recommend his services for any engagement; particularly those that involve increased complexity, sensitivity and a higher level of strategic business acumen.
