Hi Salesh, I just wanted to send you an email on behalf of GRA to say how fantastic we have found your company to date. As you know, Ben and I joined GRA a couple of months ago and have just found you so amazingly helpful in getting our new property set up correctly and sorted out. We have what I would consider a rather complicated structure as a result and it’s a fantastic feeling to know that we are getting everything done in the best way possible. We have just had approval to put a minor dwelling on the property which will make a massive difference in terms of cash flow and obviously value, something we would never have even thought of without GRA and which we are very excited about. During the buying process we attended a seminar with Matthew and from the outset thought he was fab. We therein signed up for property school and found this nothing short of fantastic. The content was relevant, up to date and comprehensive, but more importantly it was taught in a way that we could actually understand and really get value out of. I wanted to mention also, that everybody GRA have recommended to us has been just so efficient and absolute masters at what they do. A wonderful network of people that we feel very lucky to now be able to call on. From Kris Pederson and Bryan Rist who put our mortgage together to the insurance guys they then referred us to, I’m super impressed. Within GRA, Ellery has probably turned things around for us faster than I’ve ever known before, something which we appreciated so very much when it came to crunch time. She’s always a pleasure to deal with and again, we’re stoked. We’ve just settled on the property today and are about to go and get the keys. I’m pretty pumped and hence this email is probably rather excitable. So, a massive thank you to you Salesh, the partners for such a fabulous 6 weeks at property school and everyone at GRA for their help. May this be the start of our property empire. Thanks again, - A & B - July 2015
We moved our business accounting to GRA twelve months ago and have never looked back.  Matthew Gilligan and his team have consistently provided us with honest straight forward advice and have proved themselves to be honorable, trustworthy and efficient in all matters to date. The point of difference for us is that GRA do not charge their clients for every question asked (like most other accountants) which allows for better communication and understanding of how to run a successful company.  GRA have impeccable time management systems in place and their customer service is outstanding.  I recommend them to any other business that wants good solid advice with the aim of business success, asset protection and opportunities for sound investments. - A Ellis – EC Flooring Contractors Limited

Property School provided an excellent environment to learn from the experts. The senior partners and experts presented and shared current and relevant experiences which was invaluable. The one-on-one sessions offered with experts in each area meant I could discuss my situation with confidence referencing key learnings from the school. Thank-you for giving me practical knowledge that I am applying now - Anon
