We don’t just want an accountant to prepare our Tax Returns and Activity Statements, we want an accountant that can help our business grow.

Maggs Reid Stewart does just that. In particular, the use of some simple to understand business software gave us the confidence to make some changes to our business that we were too afraid to make.

The end result? Our bottom line trebled.

It is a pleasure to write this testimonial as a way of thanking two wonderful people, Alex Stewart & Jing Ling.

After the 2009 bushfires which wiped out almost our entire village, Alex & Jing advised & encouraged me to set up shop again. Initially working out of a shipping container. Alex emailed his network of friends & clients urging them to come to my shop to spent some money, which they did. So did Alex (his children told me that dad had never before spent so much money on sweets) Their help & guidance made re-creating my accounting so much easier, I can’t thank them enough.

My family has been a client of Maggs Reid Stewart in its various iterations for well in excess of 40 years. The service we have received over that time has never been anything less than exemplary. At the present time Alex Stewart is handling all of our accounting and business advisory matters. I find Alex to be very knowledgeable and pleasant to deal with and, most importantly, always accessible.

As owners /directors of a small engineering consultancy company dealing with state government bodies and local councils, a new bookkeeper (qualified accountant) discovered a number of discrepancies / issues in our company’s financial statements over the previous years. The bookkeeper suggested that we were paying substantial fees and not getting good service and this led us to seek out and find our current accountant “Maggs Reid Stewart” Following our preliminary discussions with Alex Stewart of ‘MRG’ we were delighted to transfer our company’s financial and administration requirements to “Maggs Reid Stewart”

Over the following years our company’s association with Alex, both personally with us as directors and also with our bookkeeper has always been totally stress free. Alex has always been available to contact and always ready to personally visit us and discuss and explain financial issues as required. With the passing of a director and the decision to de-register our company, again Alex was always available and assisted beyond expectation with winding up our company Of course “MRG” will continue to be our personal tax accountants into the future.

I was a client of Maggs Reid & Co for many years. The merger of Alex’s & Paul’s businesses came at an opportune time as Alex was able to assist me in re-organising my affairs when the big changes were made to super in 2007 and I have greatly appreciated that I can come to the one place and have more than just Tax Returns prepared.
