5 Best Rated Accountants in Sydney CBD & Inner City – 2019

Choose the Best Accountants in Sydney.

You wouldn’t pay $200 at a restaurant without checking reviews first, so why would you spend thousands with accountants without doing the same? 

In Australia, we spend much more on accounting and legal advice than on hospitality and related services every year. In hospitality, we don’t want a mediocre experience so we check online reviews first. Not so with accountants, even though they typically cost a lot more.

To illustrate this point, look at the chart below. Accounting and law are infrequent purchases, but over your life time you may spend a lot on these services. These are typically big purchases, with bigger consequences, so you must get it right.
