"I want a proactive accountant who communicates regularly with me."
We pride ourselves on our proactive approach and know that you need meaningful advice and support throughout the year when it is relevant, not just in hindsight when completing annual returns.

Top 3 reasons we love cloud accounting
1) Flexibility.Work anywhere, at any time. Access accounts, check balances, upload receipts and invoice customers from your smartphone, tablet, Mac or PC – anywhere you do business.
2) Highly Secure.Using a cloud accounting system ensures that all data is protected using multiple layers of encryption security to safely send, store and backup all your financial data.
3) Cash Flow.Get paid faster by invoicing clients as soon as the work is complete, even while you’re still on the job site. See when the invoice has been received and viewed.
What our clients say.
Thank you Oliveira Bern & Garland for helping me with all the paperwork that I just couldn’t get my head around. This year is going to be a lot less stressful now!
I cannot speak highly enough of Graeme.
He was recommended to me by Lawyer and now magistrate Roger Clisdell back in 2001 and we have had an excellent business relationship. Like a fatherly figure he takes a genuine interest in your accounts, provides timely and professional advice for our business and superannuation."
Graeme Garland was a godsend.
We got in trouble with not keeping clear accounting books, and really late with BAS statements. Given just 2 weeks to lodge several years worth of outstanding BAS quarters, we needed urgent help from a good accountant that could lead us and help us in this matter.
Graeme was very kind to take our case, and instrumental in teaching us how to use XERO accounts. It was very hectic, but we credit Graeme with our positive outcome with ATO, as he lodged our paperwork on time, and got us friendly repayment terms for our ATO debt. With all our oblications taken care of, we are very happy to continue using XERO and have Batemans Bay Accountants to guide our business.
Graeme Garland really helped me with some specific issues (that other recommended firms weren't interested in helping with). He was super patient and kind. Also reasonable rates.
