Why us?


Most of our team measure their service at Francis A Jones in decades rather than years. You deal with the same accountant – someone who knows and understands your business – all the time.


Our team brings extensive qualifications and experience in every aspect of accountancy and management to your business. From bookkeeping to strategic planning, our expertise is second to none.


Our accountants utilise the latest in accounting and business management technology, from cloud-based services to data collection and analysis programs that assist you in everything from compliance to planning.


As Fremantle’s largest accounting firm, we offer the complete range of services – personal services such as individual tax returns and self-managed super funds, business services ranging from corporate compliance to business finance and accounting, and organisational services such as auditing, charity set-up and focused strategic planning.


‘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.


When you need smart, well-resourced guidance and ‘outside the box’ thinking, we’re ready to take on any challenge. 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.


We started our engineering company just before the GFC, which was a testing time for many a small business. Our accountant, Adrian Wardlaw from FAJ, was instrumental in ensuring we not only survived but thrived. Adrian’s extensive knowledge and frank advice has helped steer our business to substantial and continued growth and success. Adrian’s dedicated support and guidance is one of our most valuable business resources to date. We would recommend FAJ to any business who sees value in trustworthy and educated accountancy and financial services.
