About Us

Background of the Firm

Cardell Accountants was established by Bob Cardell when he moved to Wonthaggi and acquired the existing practice of Frank Hurst who had practiced there for the previous 20 years. It has grown from 2 to 14 employees.

Employee backgrounds cover a wide range of experience including working successfully in multi-national public corporations and private companies. Staff members have first hand knowledge of the computing, printing, retail, chemical manufacturing, property, agriculture and medical diagnostics industries. Within these organisations they have gained broad experience in general and sales management, management accounting, strategic planning, restructuring and training.

Staff are accredited with Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand. We are also Registered Tax Agents as well as hold Chartered Accountants public practicing certificates. Audit and Assurance services are provided by a separate entity practising as Cardell Assurance & Audit.

The firm operates to the quality standard "APES 320 - Quality Control for Firms" issued by the Australian Accounting Professional and Ethical Board.

Staff have been recruited based upon their skill, experience and opportunities for personal growth. (Individual details are available from the "Meet Our Team" link on this page). The practice has a strong commitment to providing ongoing staff development and educational opportunities.

Recognising the evolutionary change facing us all, the practice has established this web site as another link to make it easier for our clients to access information and to communicate with us.

Our aim is to maintain and enhance the firm's professional reputation by ensuring that the practice continues to have the intellectual capital and operational rigour to meet the emerging requirements of existing and new clients.
