Bartley Partners assists clients across Adelaide, South Australian country regions and around Australia with their business accounting, bookkeeping, SMSF, property investment, wealth management, and taxation accounting needs.
Having owned and operated a number of mid-tier accounting firms in 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, and 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 currently operates in tandem with Bartley Partners.
Christopher is a Chartered Tax Adviser and Admitted Solicitor, having a Law Degree as well as a Bachelor of Accounting, along with a Diploma and Advanced Diploma of Financial Planning. Beyond his accounting background, Chris 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. Christopher has also been admitted to practice as a solicitor in the Supreme Court of South Australia.
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, and Paul is also a registered Mediator with the Office of the Small Business Commissioner, Magistrates Court of South Australia, ReturnToWorkSA, and the National Institute of Arbitrators and Mediators.
