Service

‘Where people count’ is not just a slogan, it’s the core of our service ethic. Because our people establish long term relationships with our clients, we take your business success personally. We believe that an accountant’s job is to create wealth for our clients, not to add to the cost of business,­ so our goal is to add value with everything we do.

We can help on both a tactical and a strategic level, and we offer uniquely informed objective views of the issues you’re dealing with. We love solving problems and we’re good at it. We don’t ever take the easy way out.

Testimonials


We run a chain of medical clinics. Several years ago we asked Ben Paganoni of Francis A Jones to look after the accounts for our Perth based business. Within two years he was looking after all of our national business from his base in Perth. He has successfully helped us navigate a complicated partial buyout and his advice was well researched and helped us maximise our position during these negotiations.

We have found Ben and FAJ to be more than an accountancy practice. They have become a true business partner in every sense of the word. Their advice has helped us grow our business quickly whilst avoiding many of the pitfalls along the way.

We would highly recommend both Ben Paganoni and FAJ.
