VERVE ACCOUNTINGFriendly Tax & Accounting
Local to the the New Farm, Teneriffe, Newstead, and Fortitude Valley area.
COVID-19 (13 March 2020)
I won’t be taking in-person appointments for a while.
In person apppointments pose a risk to those that are vulnerable, even though you and I may not be, due to the office acting as a distribution hub.
So please call or email if you need my attention and would otherwise be inclined to walk into the office.
New Office – Same Building
We’ve moved to Office 5A, 158 Moray St New Farm
We’ve moved office locations – same building, different space.
We’re now Office 5A, 158 Moray St – about 50m from the prior office.
That’s on the Moray St side of the corner of Moray St and Merthyr Rd.
The office is up the stairs next to the Golden Cane on the footpath.
It’s above the Moray Cafe – the first office on the left
(look for the brown wood gate)

accounting. We were so impressed with JD’s services in relation to our personal tax, that we entrusted him with our
company affairs – and we are SO relieved we did! For a smooth, thorough and no-hassle company set-up, speak to
JD. He really knows his stuff!.”

Look Forward To Catching You Next Year
“I just wanted to pass on my thanks for your help this year with my tax and the service provided.

Promptest in the Business
“You are seriously the promptest in the business! (Use that as a testimonial) haha Thank you so much!
Everything looks great!”
“Thank you for your email and amazing work on my tax return! I learnt so much from our appointment and your
advice that I’m now suddenly interested in accounting again!”
Agreed pricing: The work is done with transparent up-front prices.
Competent: Your work will be done by a registered tax agent, with a Masters degree in tax law, accounting, and financial planning (among a variety of other tax, accounting, finance, investment, financial planning, and technology qualifications).
Quality Work: I pay attention to the detail. I don’t cut corners on your work on the assumption that you won’t know any better and the ATO doesn’t audit much of anything (unless you give them a reason to), so it’s all good (for me).
Prompt: The work is done promptly, and if seasonal workload is going to create a delay then I’ll let you know that up front.
Outcomes: I place high value on knowledge, rational thought, and selecting a course of action that is based on the likely outcome for you.
It doesn’t matter where you are located, or the manner in which you care to interact. Contact me and ask a few questions.

PO Box 381, New Farm QLD 4005
Office 5A, 158 Moray St, New Farm QLD 4005 (above the Moray Cafe on Moray St)
Open: Tuesday to Friday + mixed Mondays and Saturdays (calendar note and link below). 9-ish to 5-ish. (see hours note below).
November 2018: The office has moved to another tenancy within the same building.
Now Office 5A (on Moray St, above the Moray Cafe), rather than Shop 3 (on Merthyr Rd)
Extended hours are available by appointment throughout the year.
btw – in truth the office is more likely to close around 4:00pm (well, OK, perhaps 3:30pm) in the afternoon from March through June in the short-lived lull before the new tax season that commences July 1st.
In the early intense portion of the tax season (July to September) I tend to be open more-or-less every Saturday and therefore am closed most Mondays (and that’s why you if you send me an email on Saturday evening you may not receive a response until Tuesday).
As the demand for in-person-on-site bookings begins to tail off from October onward I tend to more-or-less alternate the Mondays and Saturdays – some weeks open Monday to Friday and others Tuesday to Saturday. Then, there’s an overlay of Public Holidays, off-site Professional Development days, school holidays for my daughters, etc, which means that the alternation between the Monday-Fri + Tues-Sat weeks isn’t as tidy as it might initially seem that it could be. So, please check the open/closed calendar above to see what days I have that might mesh with your own availability.
The office (Office 5A) is on Moray St, at the corner of Moray St and Merthyr Rd – on the first level above ground level – in the first office on the left – literally located above the Moray Cafe.
Send a Message
Stop in and Say Hi…
Go ahead, grab a coffee and then duck into the office and ask a question or just say hi. The office is routinely open on Saturday (though not all Saturdays – check the open/closed calendar, above) so you don’t have to deal with you tax and accounting issues during the work-week if that’s inconvenient for you.
The office is on Moray St, in one of the office suites above the Moray Cafe (we moved in November 2018 to be literally around the corner from the prior office which was on on the Merthyr Rd side of the corner).
