CapitalQ Giving Back - CapitalQ

CapitalQ Giving Back

It can sometimes be forgotten, but a business is really just a collective of individuals working towards a common goal. And the individuals that make up CapitalQ are all keen contributors to our communities and to global needs.

Accordingly we have an active charitable giving program, whereby the Team select charities to which CapitalQ contributes a portion of profits each year.

Presently we contribute to the following worthwhile causes:

The Smith Family

The Smith Family is a children’s charity helping disadvantaged Australian children to get the most out of their education. The CapitalQ Team presently have eight (8) children amongst us, with a few more likely in the not too distant future, and we are fully aware of how lucky we are to be able to provide them with stable homes, a caring environment and the best education possible. Duncan, along with his business partners, also owns and operates a new concept in early years education and child care, and with the additional assistance of the CapitalQ Team gets to make a significant contribution to the future of the children they are able to reach.

But we all wanted to go that little bit further, and so a charitable contribution program to the Smith Family has been established and we look forward to continuing our support of this worthy cause.

The Nature Conservancy Australia

The Nature Conservancy Australia is a charity that works to preserve the land and water we all depend on to live. We all have a strong interest in preserving our land, the natural habitat of our flora and fauna and ensuring a balance can be maintained between human life on this planet with the lives of all other living things with which we share it.

Accordingly a charitable contribution program to The Nature Conservancy Australia was established and again we will aim to continue it into the future.

Australian Marine Conservation Society

Where perhaps The Nature Conservancy Australia’s work ends, Australian Marine Conservation Society’s work begins. It is Australia’s only national charity dedicated exclusively to protecting ocean wildlife and their homes.

As proud West Aussies, we all love the beach, the seas and the oceans, and we are proud to make a contribution to their protection.

Local Community

Of course we all have our local interests, and wherever possible CapitalQ makes its contribution to local causes and groups including …

Australian Red Cross

While admittedly some of the CapitalQ men are a little squeamish when it comes to needles, we do make our blood contributions with Melanie being the primary driver of the cause (she is particularly passionate about her blood donations, never missing her quarterly contribution (and yes she would give much more if they would let her)).

Mt Lawley District Cricket Club

The CapitalQ Team includes long term players, members and officeholders of the Club.  Duncan played, captained and worked as Vice-president over a 31 year career.  Peter has served as a player, coach, committee member, bar manager and number one supporter ticket holder (unofficial). Cricket and the Hawks are a passion for all of us. We feel sport is a hugely important part of life, particularly for young boys and girls teaching them invaluable skills and experiences that prepare them for all the real world will throw at them. Not to mention helping to keep them away from inactivity, boredom and distractions that could send them down the wrong path.

In addition to substantial contributions of personal time over many years, CapitalQ are also proud to have been a major sponsor and benefactor of the Club for some 10 plus years.

West Australian Trout and Freshwater Angling Association

We have some keen fishermen amongst the CapitalQ Team (yes all fish are either consumed or a catch and release policy is employed) not only for the sport but also because of the love of the great Australian (and international) outdoors.

Accordingly we assist the Association in its mission of being guardians of the land that we use and access.

Perth Broncos American Football Club

The Perth Broncos American Football Club is the oldest gridiron club in Western Australia and we are proud to be sponsors.

What our customers say

Logo for Michael Gray
Duncan Melbin’s firm first became the business accountants for Exploration Data Services, and my Family, when he was still a Graduate Accountant some 16 years ago. Myself and my late business partner have followed him ever since!

In the early days Duncan was very proactive in regards to fine tuning our business structure and the benefits of getting the structure right early are still flowing today.

Throughout my time working with Duncan he has played a key role in ensuring our tax affairs have always been in order and our tax obligations have always been minimised and well managed.

Duncan has also played a key role in ensuring my Family and I have adequate wealth protection in place and that we have maximised our wealth creation including through a regular superannuation contribution strategy and the use of a self-managed super fund that keeps us engaged, in control and to a large extent free from the perils of the GFC.

More recently we took the opportunity to outsource our entire back office accounting function to CapitalQ including switching our accounting and invoicing to Xero. I now spend barely any time at all on my monthly accounting and Activity Statement lodgements, as CapitalQ have it all in hand. This allows me to focus on running my business better, and frankly to have more time to enjoy the spoils of a life in business.

I work closely with Kapil Bhasin, our Client Manager, and Peter Melbin, our outsourced Bookkeeper, and they are clearly very valuable assets for CapitalQ.

Working with Duncan, Kapil and Peter is very easy, they respond promptly to any queries I have and most importantly I have complete trust in the advice they give me and that my business affairs are being well looked after. I would recommend CapitalQ to any potential client without reservation.

So if you own a small business or are looking to grow your wealth I highly recommend you speak to the CapitalQ Team. They will give you good advice, and ensure you are on track for a sound business and financial future (and outsourcing your back office accounting process to them, and switching to Xero, will be two of the best business decisions you will make).
