Client Testimonials



Our journey with GPA has been significant, commending back in the 1980s while Suzanne and I were living at Gratwick Road, Loxton living the dream of fruit growing, this is when we were first introduced to Gary Packer.

Having little understanding of the importance of bookkeeping, taxation and all that goes with it, I found it a drag and distracting, very fortunately we had Gary at our side.

After leave Loxton I found myself working for the large Agriculture Company Elders Ltd, shifting to Keith in the South East of South Australia, from there we travelled across to Western Australia, and settled in Katanning.  Our Elders journey took us to varying parts of the state, and throughout this period of our working life, we continued our very close association with GPA.  Gary was always just a telephone call away, a friendly voice providing excellent advice and always a pleasure to discuss the footy.

In July 2007 Suzanne and I took a large leap of faith in our own ability and purchased a small Real Estate business in Bayswater, Perth.  We have now expanded our business and also opened a second office in Midland approximately 7 kms from Bayswater.  We currently employ 17 staff and continue our search for opportunity to expand, and add true value to our business.  GPA have been pivotal to our success, giving us sound advice, and guidance when purchasing the business, we would have been a little lost without this.

Our business today looks very different than 2007, and GPA has a larger role to play.  Suzanne and I have also engaged Gary and his team to have a more active role in the day to day running of our accounts, tax planning, superannuation, business coaching and business life balance.  We have enormous trust and respect for Gary and his staff.

Our lives and business are significantly richer with the relationship of Gary and the GPA team.

For a long while I have been spending my valuable time on the endless tasks of keying the bank statement and reconciling MYOB.  I have recently changed to MYOB Account Right Live.  This change has allowed me more time to concentrate on the many other areas of our business.  I allowed GPA access to my accounts and to carry out the necessary work required to make sure everything was as shipshape as could be.  They worked with me, listened to my feedback and trained me on how to find the full potential MYOB can offer me.

Our goal was to save time on administration roles, spending more time with our customers and grow our business.  This goal was reached and I am now set up for the end of the financial year with a system I can manage and am confident using.

I would highly recommend the team at GPA if you need to save time and Money.

GPA are a forward thinking and proactive team who continually try to better their clients businesses.  If it wasn't for their invitation we would have missed a very informative and valuable business conference in Queensland and listed all the things we wish to better our business.  This process has now been documented (with our accountant) and is regularly updated so we don't let all the hype slip away.  The GPA team are always available for a bit of advice or a sounding board for new ideas.  We are very pleased at Riverland High Works to call this team our accountants.

GPA appear to be an organisation on the move, not happy being just an average accounting firm.  That's what I like, entrepreneurial suggestions on how I can make my business grow.
