Happy EOFY from G J Walsh & Co

Well another Financial Year comes to a close.

We hope that all of our clients and business associates remain healthy and safe.

What a year we have had to date, something that Dave and I have certainly not seen in the past 62 years of combined experience between us.

This year has seen everything from severe drought, bushfires, floods and of course Covid-19 pandemic. All of these challenges have certainly changed all of our lives and the way we do business now and into the future. Covid-19 has affected all of our business clients to date and will do so well into the future. We, at our practice, are totally committed in assisting our clients get through this pandemic and be there after all of this is over. The challenges have been significant and will require us all to adapt to the new way of doing business in the future to survive. Changes and adaptation is something that we are committed to for all of our clients, as we believe it will get worse before we see it getting better.

The economic stimulus support packages including JobKeeper support is now well and truly under way, and we will continue to assist all of our clients with these initiatives for the remainder of their effectiveness.

The past year has seen much change and also achieved some wonderful milestones as mentioned below:

- Our Springfield office has seen a new much larger and modern office established just around the corner from our previous location, at Orion Shopping Centre.

- Our Springfield clients from the recent takeover of former TSI Accounting, Clients have now settled into our practice and also enjoy the new premises, and working with our professional and administration support staff.

- Congratulations to Angela Leisemann for achieving 25 years of service this year, who was our very first employee at G J Walsh & Co. Within our team we have a number of long serving staff that make up our practice within all 3 offices, with more than half of our staff serving longer than 10 years in their respective offices. Our Ipswich office celebrates our Client Services Managers, Jayde Lawson with 15 years of service, and Abby Acutt with 10 years of service. Shellee Saunders from our Boonah office next month achieves the milestone of 21 years of service to our Boonah clients.

- Our Ipswich office has seen additional staff appointed to our team, Sam Notley, and Ken Urquhart who starts with us next week. We also say bye for now to Mandy Madden who will start her maternity leave after this week.

- Other initiatives implemented this year has seen such software as DocuSign gathering electronic signatures for various documents and also Apxium for fee payment processing. Both of these software’s have also added efficiencies for our practice and simplicity of use for our clients.

We also thank our wonderful team for their dedicated commitment to providing assistance and support to all of our Clients.

We wish our Clients all the success and good health during the next financial year.

All the best, from Greg Walsh
