A few kind words
from some happy clients

  • Blackburne logo

    Phill and the team at Ascend have been great for us at Blackburne. Our Strata team has received quality tailored training sessions on the tax issues they need to know about to fulfil their roles and the Ascend staff have all been fantastic at answering our ongoing questions as they arise. This is all in addition to the more ‘standard’ aspects of what they provide such as tax returns and BAS statements.  

    I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Ascend as accounting partners for any strata team, particularly with their training around finances. 

    Taryn Linfoot, Head of Strata Management, Blackburne

  • Chambers Franklyn logo

    Chambers Franklyn began partnering with Ascend back in 2014. I had personally worked with Phill on the council of Strata Community Associations (WA) and was impressed by the way he and his team understood and engaged with the industry from the ground up.

    It’s refreshing to work with accountants that understand strata - the laws that apply, the software systems we use, and the overall process of strata management as a whole.

    At the end of the day, if we have support from advisers that understand our industry, then it’s good for our clients and it’s good for us at the same time. We find the team at Ascend to be valuable partners in helping us to run our business.

    Andrew Chambers, Chambers Franklyn

  • i fresh strata logo

    Ascend Business Accountants has been a fantastic asset for i.fresh strata not only in terms of freeing up our internal resources and allowing us to focus on our own core business, but also in partnering with us to provide support in relation to our strata specific complex accounting issues.

    The services of Phill and his team pay for themselves 10 fold. Add to this the friendly nature and a business philosophy of ‘let us just help you first and charge later’, makes Ascend Business Accountants a flexible and enjoyable part of our outsourced team. We highly recommend their services.

    Darren Leslie, Director

  • Acton logo

    Phill has been value adding to our strata management services for a number of years now by providing our strata owners with the relevant information to ensure their strata companies fully comply with ATO requirements. Having the Ascend team look after the entire portfolio means that compliance is one less important thing that we as strata managers have to worry about.

    We find them friendly, informative and most importantly, pro-active in their business dealings and we are using their expertise and advice more and more as our business grows.  I would not hesitate to recommend them as a valuable partner for any other strata management businesses out there.

    Doug and Yvonne Harwood, Acton Strata

  • Prestige Strata Management logo

    Prestige Strata Management (PSM) have worked with Phil and his team at Ascend since we started the business in 2013. Ascend have always been very accommodating and most importantly, been very flexible with the various services we have required.

    Phil has been most accommodating to myself as director, especially when I have sought guidance as to best practices and processes. This has been regardless of the time involved, which I have always appreciated. PSM enjoy working alongside the Ascend team and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for accounting and tax advice when it comes to strata.

    Kristy Ward, Prestige Strata Management

  • Smithwick Strata Services logo

    Partnering with Ascend saves Smithwick Strata Services a great deal of time and headaches. They are set up with direct access to our client accounts and are always available to provide us with an answer … even to the point of writing up owner letters for specific situations, joining us at client meetings and providing our team with onsite training. We’re pleased to have them as our tax and accounting partners.
