I would like to reiterate my personal appreciation for your time and effort toward my business.
As I first explained, due to my circumstances, preparing to deal with the ATO has been an ongoing struggle.
My primary fear was not being treated with the professionalism I required as my situation was “complex” in my mind.
My business may have been simple to you, but the fact you treated it as any other business big or small, gave me confidence that I was in good hands.
As I reviewed the documents, I was only smiling, and in some parts laughing. So you really have done a spectacular job!Ashley S.
Awesome, what a great Christmas I will now have!
Tom is amazeballs as my daughter would say haha 🙂

Bringing in Tom and Duncan has been an excellent decision for my business. With their guidance we implemented WorkFlowMax and Xero, both of which have significantly streamlined our processes. Combined with the monthly management support I’ve been able to focus more on our core business and increase efficiency.
I highly recommend Tom, Duncan and the CapitalQ Team to all those seeking a Business Accountant in Perth, WA.Adam Pratt

I am very happy to be able to write this testimonial for Duncan Melbin, Abhishek Puri and the Team at CapitalQ Chartered Accountants.
When the opportunity arose for me to step up and become a Director of Office Solutions IT, and to take an ownership interest, Duncan and Abhi were the ones I turned to for advice regarding my obligations, my ownership structure, tax minimisation and management of my business interests moving forward.
They have also assisted me with my property investing and development activities.
They always return my calls promptly, are always available when I need to see them and their straight forward advice is always spot on.Igor Pavic
Director, Office Solutions I.T.
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).

I joined CapitalQ as a Client approximately 18 months ago as I was frustrated with the lack of communication and proactive advice from my existing accountant. I was attracted to CapitalQ because I was referred to them by a business associate and I knew they were a leader in the adoption of new technologies and systems in the accounting field that would help me manage my business better.
I work closely with Duncan Melbin the Director and with Abhishek Puri my allocated Client Manager. Both provide a very prompt, efficient service. The issues I faced when I first came to CapitalQ were explained to me in plain English and I was kept well informed as to how they would be addressed and ultimately overcome.
Since then Duncan and Abhishek have maintained consistent contact with me, they have let me know any time something needs to be addressed and they have ensured all my affairs are in order and that I am prepared for what is coming next.
I am very pleased I made the move to CapitalQ Chartered Accountants and I would not hesitate to recommend Duncan, Abhishek and their Team to any SME owner who is looking to get their affairs in order, who is looking to improve the way their business is managed and who is looking to take their business to the next level.Jason Wandby

Tom Meredith representing CapitalQ Chartered Accountants has been my accountant preparing my personal tax returns for the past 3 years. His highly professional and efficient service is the reason why I will be a client for years to come. I, along with friends and family, can not recommend Tom and the Team at CapitalQ highly enough.Jeff Butterfield (Services – Tax Returns)
Having been a medical practitioner for 25 years, and having had several perth accountants throughout that time, I have been most impressed with the way CapitalQ have looked after me since I became a client some 4 years ago.
Kapil & Duncan should be commended for their professionalism, diligence and honesty.Dr Marko Lambasa
Please be advised that I have known Tom Meredith for some 7 years now. Tom has been my personal and Business Accountant over that period and I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending his services to anyone that was in need of a competent and thorough Accountant.
I have always found Tom to be very honest, reliable and trustworthy in all matters pertaining to our Business needs. Tom is friendly and always willing to help wherever possible.
If you are in need of an Accountant with the above acumen, you need look no further.Neil E Parsonage
Director, Oxford Securities Pty Ltd
Working with Tom (Meredith) at CapitalQ business accountants in Perth helped to take some of the pressure off what was a very stressful time. He is always patient and helpful, and explains things in terms we can understand. Tom has helped us to take our complicated business structure and make the accounting side of it manageable and much more efficient. We look forward to continuing to work with CapitalQ in the future and to the benefits that this will bring to our business and our peace of mind.
You can contact Tom and the CapitalQ Team here.Amy Rosato
We have been clients of Duncan Melbin (now CapitalQ Accounting) since 2005.
In the initial years Duncan had a small team around him and it was always comforting for us to speak directly with Duncan if needed.
In that time (with some advice and assistance) we have grown our business turnover by 150 %. CapitalQ were instrumental in moving our bookkeeping systems to Cloud based (XERO). Probably the biggest time/stress saving thing we have done in our business.
Also since 2010 all financial reporting (tax returns etc) is presented to us in online files, great for dealing with financial institutions etc
During this time Duncan has continued to keep a small team around him, it is refreshing to know that we can still call the office and talk to him, or to the team member (For us, Kapil) that knows our business personally.
We highly recommend Duncan Melbin and his team at CapitalQ, they are the perfect blend of “old school service” and state of the art I.T. accounting.Mike & Rachel Henderson

Tom has helped me with my personal tax returns over the past 3 years and I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a quality Accountant to manage their tax affairs.
He delivers a prompt, reliable and knowledgeable service, and is always happy to answer any queries or offer advice throughout the year.
In my first meeting with Tom he identified some significant tax savings from the previous financial year that has been missed by my former Accountant, and also gave me some useful advice on how to manage my investment property.Steve Hearl
