Gavin graduated with a B. Bus. double majoring in Accounting/Data Processing from Northern Rivers CAE (now Southern Cross University) in 1987. He then took his qualifications to Sydney, his birth place, working in the finance sector for several years before returning to Lismore to own and operate a successful retail toy store for 11 years. Accredited Bookkeeping Systems was fortunate to gain Gavin's services in 2006 which ultimately resulted in him becoming a partner in 2013.


In December 2007 Gavin and family decided to pursue a lifestyle change, choosing the outskirts of the lovely historic village of Richmond in Tasmania as their new home where he enjoys operating his hobby farm and producing his own organically grown fruit & veg in his spare time.  

Having experienced the demands of operating a small business himself, Gavin has an excellent understanding of the needs of his clients. Gavin is a BAS Agent registered with the Tax Practitioners Board.  He is also an MYOB specialist with over 20 years experience. Gavin takes care of our Tasmanian clients while still servicing NSW clients from a distance.
