Do I need to use the same company for bookkeeping and accountant services?

What skills does an accountant need?

At Total Business Partners, we only hire fully qualified accountants that tick all of these boxes to ensure that our clients receive the best possible standards of service.

Do you provide foreign accountancy advice?

Yes! The Sunshine Coast is a beautiful location and it is no wonder that many people migrate here. However, many Sunshine Coast individuals and businesses require foreign tax advice to provide or receive services from overseas.
