Now you know what we do,
let us introduce ourselves!

 

Formerly known as Symons Thornley Accountants, we at Mackinder Bourne Accountants have the backing of over 25 years’ experience combined with a fresh and enthusiastic take on Accounting. If there’s a change in any facet of the Accounting and Financial realm, you can bet we already know about it and we’re working with our clients to keep them up to speed.

Hi there, we’re Anthony Mackinder and Amanda Bourne and as the name suggests we’re the Managing Directors of Mackinder Bourne Accountants.

While we might look fresh faced, we have over 25 years combined experience in Accounting. We are both former employees of Symons Thornley, having worked together for almost 10 years. We saw an opportunity to purchase the firm in mid 2018 from the previous owners… and grabbed it!

Why did we purchase the firm instead of creating our own?

It’s simple really, having worked together in the firm for the past 10 years we worked extremely hard to build relationships with our clients, getting to know them and their affairs personally while watching them grow in leaps and bounds. We love assisting our clients. When we started tossing around the idea of starting a new firm together, we didn’t feel it was the right to walk away from our existing client base, the clients who we had grown to love assisting. Our clients will always be the heart and soul of our business and all decisions we make will firmly be around our clients, many are practically family we talk so often!

So, to us it was a no-brainer!

We purchased the firm and are now undertaking a change of ownership which is no big deal for our existing client family, really, it’s just a change of name and a new brand, other than that, it’s business as usual. We have started making a few changes here and there as we put a few new ideas into place so feel free to let us know what you’d like to see from us as your accountants so we know how to continue to best serve you!

We bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the firm, coupled with an energetic and enthusiastic approach to our work. We thrive on challenges and love seeing the transformations of our clients. We like to have fun at the office and encourage our clients to see the lighter side of accounting, while still taking our work very seriously.

We have made it our mission to make accounting and finance less complicated and stressful for you.

The firm is located on the banks of the Hawkesbury River in North Richmond and we service the greater Hawkesbury, Penrith, Blue Mountains, Hills and Sydney regions but we also have national and international clients that still call our practice home.
