I have enjoyed a close working relationship with Darren and the team at DJ Smith Group for several years and could not speak more highly of the firm.

Very professional and genuinely engaged as true business advisers to their clients, not just with tax and compliance matters, but around working with client’s on business strategy, planning and execution to allow them to confidently grow and develop their businesses.

One really important observation that would be amiss of me not to mention (having now been fortunate to work with many clients of the firm), is how successful as a cohort DJ Smith Group clients tend to be.

I have been a client of DJ Smith Group for 10 years now and during this time I have found Darren and the team to be both helpful and proactive with the advice they have provided.

More specifically, I have worked closely with Darren Smith on my self-managed superannuation fund and had advice on various business initiatives.  Darren has always made me feel valued as a client and I have a high degree of trust for the advice and services he provides to me.

Darren is very approachable and reliable. He is a great person to work with. I have had nothing but a positive experience working with him. I have recommended Darren and his team to a number of colleagues for their accounting, tax and business advisory needs.

We have been working with Darren and DJ Smith Group for the past 4 years. Darren’s external CFO service has been greatly beneficial to our business. Darren provides an insightful analysis of our results and has had significant input in developing our ongoing business strategy. Knowing that we can access DJ Smith Group at any time for a fixed monthly fee gives us comfort in asking questions without concern for how much it will cost. The external CFO service provided by Darren allows us to access his knowledge and experience when a business of our size could not realistically afford to employ that level of resources.

As our business continues to evolve, we look forward to working with Darren and his team for many years to come.

We have used the accounting and business advisory services of DJ Smith Group since 2001 and during this time we have found DJ Smith Group to be very responsive and diligent in the accounting work they complete for us but more importantly, the proactive business advice they have provided us has allowed us to operate a business structure that is highly flexible and tax efficient.

In addition, they have worked closely with us in actively advising us on the most appropriate structure and financial strategy to pursue to best accommodate for the growth in our business. On this basis, we have no hesitation in endorsing DJ Smith Group to any business owner or private individual for their accounting, tax and business advisory needs.

I have reason to refer service providers to many of my clients. In referring Darren Smith and the DJ Smith Group I have been more than pleased with the positive feedback I get. This is important to know and frankly we all benefit. Basically it is about trust. Not only is Darren and his team good accountants whose knowledge is up to date and sound but they additionally offer my clients really good broad based business advice that has resulted in business growth and risk minimisation. Value for money is what comes to my mind.

I have been a loyal client of DJ Smith Group for many years and during this time have received outstanding service. From advice regarding business ventures and investments, to even the smallest day to day query, the efficient and friendly staff at DJ Smith Group always manage to exceed my expectations by providing fast and accurate answers to my questions.

It is refreshing to have an accountant that offers such a personalised service where I feel I am the only client and one who does care about the success of my business.

Our relationship will remain long into the future.
