More on Peter

Peter brings over twenty years of experience in providing taxation and financial consultancy services. During this time he has worked with a wide range of clients in numerous industries and life stages. In more recent years, Peter has become more focussed on high net worth clients and family groups.

Notwithstanding, he takes the time to ensure that the expectations of each and every client are met and exceeded. If you require an accountant who is able to cover all the angles such as business management, tax planning, business structuring, estate planning, superannuation, asset protection and all the other miscellaneous financial disciplines then you should certainly consider Peter as your advisor.

After three years as a partner with another practice, Peter decided to establish his own firm. Since then, Hartford Partners has enjoyed significant growth in terms of client base and service offering.

Peter has developed an extensive knowledge and understanding in the field of taxation. He can advise you on almost any taxation matter, including income tax, state taxes, superannuation, goods and services tax, fringe benefits tax, capital gains tax and many other niche areas. He is passionate about creating the best possible outcomes for his clients and providing an exceptional level of service.

During his time as a practising accountant Peter has gained an intimate understanding of the workings of businesses large and small. He provides strategic and business advice to many of his clients on a day-to-day basis and he can help you achieve your business goals. He can assist you in a relation to a wide range of financial issues, from navigating the complex range of choices in establishing your business structure to succession and estate planning and everything in between.

In his spare time Peter loves to get outdoors and particularly enjoys surfing, football and all sports generally. He is personable and friendly and would love to meet with you to discuss your accounting and advisory requirements.
