In over 30 years of business I have dealt with a number of accountants and business advisors. I was introduced to Greg Charlton of Sapphire and other members of his team through my work as a public relations consultant. I was so impressed by Greg's professional and communication skills that I had no hesitation in engaging Sapphire for all of my accountancy and advisory needs. Greg and his support staff, are not only on top of tax laws and compliance needs, they show genuine care and back it up with first class service. I strongly recommend Greg and Sapphire Accountants to business operators at all levels.

Finding the right accountant may take years, losing a fortune without good advice may happen every day. I stopped searching for an accountant since I was introduced to Sapphire. It is amazing how easy it is to get good advice without asking twice. Advice and proper direction based on solid knowledge was provided to me on each consultation with Sapphire Accountants with outstanding results. Quality of service is one of the best I have ever seen in Australia. Saving money and creating wealth seems to be so easy in the hands of Greg. If you don't try them you'll never know what you have lost. Honestly, my highest recommendation for Sapphire Accountants.
