TROY@ADVANCEDWA.COM.AU

Hello, my name is Troy and I am the Managing Director of Advanced Accounting and Advisory. I hold a Bachelor of Business with a major in Information Systems and Electronic Commerce and a Graduate Diploma of Professional Accounting. I am a member of the Certified Practicing Accountants (CPA), a SMSF Specialist Adviser with the SMSF (Self-Managed Super Funds) Association and have a Diploma of Financial Planning.

How I can help you:
I am focused on helping clients achieve success in business and happiness in their personal lives through a healthy work/life balance.

My key role at Advanced Accounting and Advisory is providing strategic growth and direction of the business to enable us to provide the best services we can to our clients.

As an SMSF specialist and licenced accountant I work closely with our trustees to navigate the many pitfalls of SIS legislation while identifying strategic opportunities to grow and protect their retirement nest eggs.

I am passionate about providing support to our business clients to help them build a better business that works for them, not the other way around. By providing direction and accountability of action for our clients I want to ensure they have every chance to grow and succeed in business. I am a big believer in the saying, “Failing to plan is planning to fail.”
