We are seeking a self-directed, authentic and focused senior accountant (manager) to join our Dubbo team. Candidates should have a genuine client focus, a strong knowledge of tax compliance & accounting skills.

PrincipleFocus is a regional accounting & advisory business that has a big vision, for ourselves and for our clients. We listen, develop possibilities, focus on outcomes and inspire growth – growth in profits, growth in business and growth in people.

Our clients are regionally based families, largely comprising ‘proactive & dynamic’ individuals involved in agribusiness and investment (HNW), all looking to change, develop and grow. To achieve that vision our team must also grow – in excellence and innovation, through our collective and varied experiences and our knowledge; and now in size, to meet a growing demand for our services.

· Review and finalise year-end financial statements and tax returns.

· Manage clients taxation and other compliance obligations, and support them in their future plans.

· Prepare pre-June tax estimates for clients.
