David Burnes

I am a CPA qualified accountant with over 20 years experience in providing accounting, management and taxation advice to small and medium sized businesses. I starting my career in one of the big four firms, Coopers and Lybrand, as a specialist advisor in there taxation division. These were the days of corporate libraries – there was no internet – and I spent countless hours with my head in “big books” researching case law.  At the same time I was also planning an adventure with a rock band called the Aardvarks. Having tasted the success of winning the Queensland Rock Awards I felt sure we were on track to becoming the next INXS.

So having spent 4 years with Coopers I moved to Sydney to pursue my rock star ambitions. Sadly I admit the move to Sydney did not launch me to fame and fortune but I did get to tour up and down the east coast with some of the great Aussie bands of their time. I returned to Brisbane and commenced work with a smaller city based chartered accounting firm, Steinhardt and Company. To my surprise I found I really enjoyed working within a smaller firm environment and gained invaluable experience in managing the accounting and taxation needs of a wide variety of clients. In particular I enjoyed the one to one client contact. Becoming an integral part of a clients business, I gained job satisfaction from contributing to business growth and success.

After having spent 11 years with Steinhardt and Company my wife and I moved to the Sunshine Coast. We had decided the time was right to start a family and thought the coast lifestyle provided the perfect environment to raise a young family. David and I met whilst both working for an accounting firm on the coast and the initial seed was planted to go into business ourselves. I enjoy cycling and am Secretary of the Sunshine Coast Cycling Club. My resume includes having owned and operated a contracting business in Sydney and a retail outlet in Paddington, Brisbane.

We aim to provide high quality, personalised accounting services to both individuals and larger organisations.
