Read what our clients have to say below.

Agriculture & Forestry

Our group of companies in Tasmania have used Synectic for a full range of accounting and financial services since re-entering the Tasmanian forest industry in 2010. Gareth Atkins sits on our board as a Director of all our entities, provides overall advice on financial, strategic and operational issues. I highly recommend Synectic for all aspects of accounting and financial advisory services.

We knew we needed to improve our admin systems and thankfully a fellow farmer referred us to Synectic for assistance. They set us up on Xero and we were really impressed with the service we received – so much so that we decided to use Synectic for all our tax and accounting needs.

The team at Synectic are a pleasure to deal with. Friendly and professional.

The partners of Synectic are trying to run a business efficiently and properly. We are doing the same thing so we work well together.

I have found all Synectic staff, at all levels, to be very friendly and extremely helpful with any queries.

The audit findings report was very well presented and useful for Directors and staff. [We are] very happy with the performance and results.

Construction, Completion & Manufacturing

Synectic has been the external accounting firm for Fairbrother Pty Ltd for over 30 years. The financial management, advice on strategic planning issues and management of our superannuation fund provided by the partners and excellent staff has played an important part in our continued growth. Thank you.

Like most business owners I’m busy.  However, I appreciate that Synectic give me a push now and then to spend time working on the business with them. They provide me with advice that ultimately saves me time, money and future headaches. Helping us convert to Xero and streamline our accounting processes have been beneficial, business-changing decisions they have supported us with.  READ MORE >

Since being appointed as external accountant and business advisors for The Joinery Products Group of Companies the achievements of Synectic Group have been significant. Their contributions include assistance with structural and entity improvements and rationalization, generation ownership planning and execution, company finance improvements – with significant gains – and asset protection. Synectic have guided the business to significant profit and wealth increases. I would have no hesitation in recommending Synectic Group to any business wanting to move from survive to thrive.

Synectic have been extremely helpful in the establishment of our property development business. The company set-up was made easy by the experienced staff and the knowledge that they bring to this specific field. The prompt service and reliability that Synectic offers is extremely appreciated.

Not for Profit Organisations & Local Government

Synectic were engaged to perform a thorough review of the systems and processes within our Finance Team at the Eskleigh Foundation. We decided to go with Synectic due to Claire’s strong financial background, but also her vast experience with executive leadership roles – specialising in organisational capacity building. Claire completed the engagement with Eskleigh in a professional, collaborative and friendly manner – far exceeding the expectations we had. In addition to the finance review, Claire also ‘value added’ by providing key insights and suggestions for improvements for other departments within Eskleigh. I have no hesitation in recommending Synectic to any organisation seeking improvement or increased capability.

The Synectic Group were charged with the preparation of the financial statements for George Town Council for several years. During that time the work they performed and their relationship with George Town Council was always of a high standard and they could be relied upon to produce the financial statements in a timely, professional manner. Communication and information flow was an important factor and this they carried out in a manner that enhanced the relationship and served to ensure a quality result … we would certainly have no hesitation in engaging them again for similar work.

Ben and his team have taken the time to learn about Self Help Workplace’s business and our strategic priorities. As a social enterprise, Self Help Workplace is a relatively complex operation and they have an understanding of the various elements of our business, what the drivers are and our efforts to position the organisation to manage the NDIS and other factors influencing our enterprise. The audit is excellent value for money.

Dorset Council recently engaged Synectic to supplement Council’s audit program. Claire was very respectful and personable with the Council team and delivered value through clear action points that really focused on the material issues. Council would certainly recommend Synectic to other organisations and Council would utilise their services again.

Telephone contact was extremely helpful, when the person recognises your name and organisation it is most reassuring that your communication is sent in the right direction.

Thank you for working with us to meet tight timeframes. It is a pleasure to work with auditors who understand our business and the not for profit sector.

Professional & Property Services

I’m really happy. Since I’ve been with Synectic my business has surged. The systems they’ve set up are user-friendly and enrich my business. By setting me up with Xero, Synectic have made everything clearer for me and saved me a lot of time in front of the computer. The way my adviser explains things makes it easy for me to get my head around too. If there’s a facet I don’t understand, he will sit down and explain things until I do – even if it takes a few different tacts. I never feel awkward asking, and actually understanding the figures has helped me to improve my business as a whole.  READ MORE >

In seeking an accounting firm that had a holistic approach to my finances, and an understanding and capacity to work with a business in the digital space, Synectic Group became an obvious choice. Its own transition into cloud accounting created a perfect alignment with Kellie O’Brien Media. The combination of a team approach with individual attention has created greater clarity, confidence and ease around my business finances and growth in a short space of time. Ultimately, its greatest asset is its incredibly approachable, honest and supportive people, who make you feel valued through encouraging open lines of communication.

Synectic has met all of our personal and professional accounting needs for the past 35 years. We like the personal attention we receive from highly qualified and practiced staff. They know their business. We also congratulate the partners of Synectic on their initiative in extending their business capacity to cater for rapid changes in client requirements.

I have been a client of Synectic since 1973 and have appreciated their commitment to timelines and availability to assist in any way required. The professional approach by all the staff is exemplary. I trust their advice, honesty and integrity and could not speak more highly of them as an accounting firm. They have earned our loyalty and respect over such a long time.

We switched to Synectic due to their confidence in the cloud accounting space and their ability to provide the high level financial and business advice we sought.

They not only address our compliance and technical needs, but add value to the work of our internal accountant by providing management accounting and commercial advice. Gareth Atkins regularly attends board meetings to provide practical advice and an outsider’s perspective to the board. With their regular input, improved monitoring and accountability we know the important issues are being addressed and we have more focus on what we need to do to drive financial performance.

Retail & Tourism

I required the assistance of an accountant with the experience and confidence required to negotiate with some ruthless executives. I chose Synectic.

Synectic has been closely associated with the growth of the Wyllie Tiles business over 35 years. On behalf of Bevin, Jacqueline, Jason, and Dion we say thank you.

The Synectic team were very helpful and extremely friendly – the team took the stress out … absolutely brilliant team to engage with, almost made tax returns fun!

Self-managed Super Funds
