Our newsagency was fortunate to be a client of Hooper & Co for over 20 years. We received amazing support from Jon and his team during a particularly difficult personal time, the sale of our family business. Jon negotiated the sale of the business and enabled us to get the maximum price; he facilitated a fantastic outcome for our family during a time of personal and financial duress. At all times Jon and his team were there for us, kept us informed and advised us as to all the best options. When the sale was complete, considering all the time we were afforded, we were amazed at the very small amount we had to pay for their amazing support. As a family we are so thankful we had Jon with us during this time.

Jonathan's firm assisted us with a very difficult and complex family matter. Previous accounting practices relating to our late father's estate had been negligent and processes were deliberately obscure and drawn out.
Jonathan first assisted us in understanding issues relating to the estate and what needed to be done. He then proceeded to engage in a process of forensic accounting involving location of missing funds and identification of practices engaged in by the previous accountant.
He was completely transparent in all transactions and continually liaised with us regarding progress and our wishes while bringing all financial affairs up to date.

I approached Hooper & Co out of desperation 3 years ago as my account side of the business was in complete disarray. To my relief they agreed to take on the challenge to sort through my accounts. This was handled in a very professional manner and resulted in fixing my problem in what I considered a short time frame.
To avoid this happening again I was introduced to a product which has resulted in freeing up the time and headache of accounts and has enabled me to concentrate on what I am good at and that is running my own business.
All the staff I have dealt with have been extremely helpful and have always welcomed me in a warm polite manner when I have visited the office.
If you are seeking an accounting firm then I can say from experience that I would recommend them as one of the best I have dealt with.

My husband and I have been operating small businesses since 1971 and used several different accountants until 1996 when we received a recommendation from another small business owner to use Jon's services. As we were dissatisfied with the charges comparative to services rendered of our current accountant we made the change and have been with Jon ever since.
In those twenty years Jon has assisted us with setting up new businesses, buying & selling businesses, residential & commercial property. We have called on Jon's expertise to advise us when we developed several rental properties and set up and run our own self managed super fund. Jon's connections within his client base helped us to maximize the sale of one of our service stations and he assisted us to achieve a very good outcome on the sale of one of our larger business assets.
Part of our business involves international trade, import & export. When we first ventured into this field Jon was able to assist us in navigating the many mine fields to be crossed so that we encountered minimum dramas and ensured we met our tax and other compliance obligations.
Jon & his excellent staff are always there when you need them during all the inevitable ups and downs which are the hallmark of small business. In recent years Jon has helped us with our estate planning as we look to wind down our business affairs.
In closing Jon is a perfectionist who gives his all to meet his clients' needs. The firms' charges are extremely fair and Jon will leave no stone unturned to resolve an issue for his client. Jon is always striving to learn more, as demonstrated by his current extensive study program and endeavours to add financial planning to his client services. We cannot thank Jon & his staff enough because without their dedicated service we would not be where we are today.

My wife and I started our own parts distribution and mechanical workshop business in 1995, which we are proud to say has been a huge success and after almost 22 years we still really enjoy every facet of it!
We have been in a very fortunate position to be guided by and have complete trust in our accounting team, Jonathan has looked after us personally for the entire time and while there is comfort in longevity, he and his team have always kept us at the forefront to changes in taxation policies and opportunities to save money. We hear stories of others who just feel that there accountants get used to sending invoices and statements for their services and don't really earn their keep as such. Likewise many accountants can be labelled as sales people for schemes and investment that are strategically offered for not only the good of the client, not once has this every happened to us. George Thomolaris joined Jonathan's team about seven or so years ago, and has certainly been a welcomed addition from our point of view, as nowadays George handles all of our queries and BAS related work and then pairs up with Jonathan to bring each year to a close for us. We have complete faith in everything that Jonathan, George, Simone and team do for S&J Automotive and our personal accounting, plus the many that we have referred.

Approximately 30 years ago, I engaged the services of Jonathan Hooper Chartered Accountant (now Hooper & Co) for my business accounting and taxation requirements. Back then I was hands on in my crash repair business and didn't have the time for the required bookkeeping skills in running a business. Today the crash repair business has been sold and I maintain a fruitful property portfolio.
Over the years Jon and his team have been a vital part of my business development. Their well-researched advice is always delivered in a timely and efficient manner. Their expertise in taxation and business structuring ensures we are compliant with the most recent tax legislation whilst protecting our assets and minimising our tax liability. My growth has been built on honest and respectable business relationships, Jon and his team have been an integral part of this and I look forward to many more years working together.
