About Synectic Accountants and Advisers

Accountants & Advisers to Tasmanians for over 40 years

A short history…

Synectic was formed from the restructure of Atkinson Gibson in 2004 and traces its origins in Tasmania to 1979. Gareth Atkins (Director) started his career with us as a trainee accountant in 1992. Ben Coull (Director) joined us in 2013, bringing with him over 20 years of audit and business services experience in the Launceston region. Matt McConnell (Director) came on board in 2017 with qualifications in Accounting and Financial Planning and 20 years experience in the financial services industry.

Proudly Tasmanian owner and operated, Synectic has its roots in the traditions of the accounting profession handed down through its long history. However, as forward-thinking business we continually embrace innovation with an inspired and creative team. Our industry has seen huge changes since we began, as have the needs and expectations of our clients and team. We reflect these changes in the quality and range of our services, the relationships we maintain with our people, clients and community, and our investment in industry leading work practices and technology.

Whether you are coming to us as an individual, a small or medium business, large corporation or not-for-profit, we’ll get to know you and your unique needs. Whatever it is that’s important to you, it will be important to us too.

Our purpose is to enhance the prosperity of our people, clients and community.
