Kothes joins Walker Wayland as a New Member Firm

Accounting firm sees better service by networking

Kothes Chartered Accountants has moved to bolster services and resources for its clients throughout south-east New South Wales with a tie-in to an international business network.

The network, Walker Wayland Australasia, is a fast-growing community of mid-tier accounting firms across all mainland states of Australia and New Zealand.

Mr Simon Byrne, a Principal at Kothes, stated that “the move will provide the clients of Kothes with access to the power and resources of more than 100 leaders in the accounting profession, resulting in better advice and services for businesses across our region.”

The chair of Walker Wayland Australasia, Grant Allsopp, said the group of 13 mid-tier accounting firms across Australia and New Zealand had developed a “community of ideas” approach.

“The network was set up so each member could grow through exchange of ideas and mutual support,” said Allsopp. “If one member needs to improve its skills in a particular area, there are people in our community who have those skills and are happy to provide training and support.”

Established 65 years ago, Kothes is the largest public accounting firm on the far south coast of New South Wales.  The firm specialises in providing professional advice and services to clients in the area of business advice and planning, taxation, audit, financial planning, self-managed superannuation funds and information technology services.

Simon Byrne stated that “all of these skills will be bolstered now with our membership of Walker Wayland Australasia, allowing the firm to provide even more services to clients”.

The Kothes firm includes seven principals and 45 staff across four offices in the region at Bega, Merimbula, Eden and Bombala. Kothes also has satellite offices in Bermagui, Cooma and Jindabyne.
