Gavin Smith, has been in business for over 25 years and is the managing director of Smith Shearer which was established in 1996. Gavin says the main focus for Smith Shearer is on partnering with local businesses and agribusinesses to provide business advisory services.
At Smith Shearer we understand how overwhelming it can be thinking about budgeting and managing your cashflow and understanding your performance indicators. We know it's difficult to consider whether the structure you're operating within maximises your profit and minimises your tax obligations, and how to create and achieve growth goals when you're tied up in the day-to-day operations of the business. Our business advisory team are the ones to turn to if you need someone to help you navigate and manage your business challenges and uncover opportunities for growth.
Smith Shearer has diversified over the years as accounting has come a long way. With the development of accounting software, it's easier for business owners to manage their own bookkeeping and we help ensure these businesses are tax compliant. This has enabled us to focus on helping businesses to grow, and for business owners to create and meet their business and personal wealth goals. While we still provide financial statements and tax returns for business and agribusinesses, this is the basis of how our firm can help you.
We now have three specialist divisions focused on helping you manage and grow your business: our business services team, who focus on your tax compliance, our consulting division who focus on providing you with specialist business advice and our SMSF division who are authorised SMSF advisors. This puts Smith Shearers business in the unique position of being able to provide you with specialised advice, teamed with local Esperance knowledge.
Gavin would like to remind all members that he invites all local business and agribusinesses to attend the upcoming Business After Hours on the 12th August at the Esperance Bay Yacht Club, where they will be collaborating with Kitto and Kitto lawyers in an informal, relaxed event.
