Having owned and operated a number of mid-tier accounting firms around Adelaide
over the last three decades Paul Bartley realised that a change was needed in
the model for accounting firms.
Older accountants were ignoring much of the younger talent in the industry.
They created firms without succession plans and a culture where only the
oldest staff (rarely chosen for their people skills) had any client contact.
Wanting to address this negative trend, Paul teamed up with Christopher Overton,
who previously managed a number of successful accounting firms as well as
a decade of running his own successful bookkeeping firm Integral Bookkeeping
Solutions which to this day still operates in tandem with Bartley Partners.
Christopher is a Chartered Tax Adviser having a Law Degree as well as his
Bachelor of Accounting and Diploma & Advanced Diploma of Financial Planning.
Beyond his accounting background he has served on the boards of several successful
private companies and Not-for-Profit Organisations both within Australia and
overseas in marketing and finance roles.
Both Paul and Chris are Fellows of the Australian Tax Institute and understand the
large and complex environment that Australian businesses and investors operate in.
The firm has diverse talent amongst its partners and its staff with Paul also being
a registered Mediator with the Office of the Small Business Commissioner,
Workcover SA and the National Institute of Arbitrators and Mediators.
Paul, Christopher and the Bartley Partners team assist clients across Adelaide,
South Australian country regions and around Australia at large with their business,
property, wealth management and taxation needs.
Small to Medium size business clients make up the highest percentage of
Bartley Partners client list. As well as many property investors who enjoy
advice on planning for their retirement using our taxation and superannuation strategies.
