summer edition 2012 – SA

The last quarter has once again been fuelled with news of international economic turbulence such as a slow down in China and the US “fiscal cliff”.
We were fortunate to have Australia’s preeminent economic commentator, Saul Eslake, provide his insight into these global events as well as present the Australian and local economic outlook for 2013 to more than 250 clients and associates at our Economic Update event in October.

The update was extremely well received by those who attended and we were delighted to be able to present someone of Saul’s calibre at this important annual event.
In terms of our own firm, I am excited to announce the appointment of respected advisor, Terry Lewis, as a Director in our Business Advisory division. Terry’s appointment follows the merger with Lewis Richmond and Terry’s team of five, growing our firm to 17 Directors and 148 staff.
Formerly a Partner with KPMG before starting his own firm, Terry brings strong expertise across tax services in addition to business advisory. His specialist industry experience in property, manufacturing, wine and professional practices will provide great value to our clients’ business needs.
In other news I would like to congratulate our Audit & Assurance Director Matthew King for his appointment to the SA/NT Regional Council of the Institute of Chartered Accountants. Our Tax Director Ian Snook also sits on the State Council and Technical Committee of The Taxation Institute. It’s fantastic to see our Directors participate at a senior level in these important professional bodies.
I hope you enjoy this edition of Be Informed. Have a safe Christmas and New Year period and we look forward to assisting you with another successful year in 2013. This year we will be making a donation to the Hutt Street Centre, supporting Adelaide’s homeless this Christmas.

Jamie McKeough
Managing Director
