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.
