Firm Profile

Our History Our Team

This firm commenced practice in 1948 with Mr A.W. Jones who retired from the practice in 1973. At present there are three partners all with a long association with the firm.

Ron Starr joined
the practice in 1967.

Rod Rixon joined in 1973.

Wayne Smith joined in 1984.

We have two offices, one located at 97-101 Faulkner Street, Armidale and the second office located at 130 Bradley Street, Guyra.


This firm is typical of most small, country, accounting practices.

We have a relatively stable client base with little movement of clients away or to the practice. Most client movements away from the practice are generally because the client has physically left the area or, in some cases, ceased trading and/or retired. New clients, in most cases, come from within the families of our existing client base. A large percentage of our client base are either primary producers or involved with associated rural service businesses. We also have a significant number of clients that are associated with micro businesses typical of any small rural town e.g. building industry subcontractors and various general goods retailers.
