Sky Accountants have been our accountants now for 20 years or more and have always been our financial and business " rock" . We really respect and value Tim's advice and he always is prompt, professional and friendly. Jess is also terrific and nothing is too much trouble for her. We value our relationship with all the team at Sky Accountant very highly and have recommended their services many times over the years

Jamie , Tim , Jess and all the SKY team are the BEST! They have really helped guide our business to make the right decisions at the right time - from the early stages of start up, through the many good years along the way but most importantly, during the challenging times where we needed assistance and guidance. ...Thanks guys and keep up the great work.

Sandrah Wilson

Hi my name is Sandrah. I’ve been a client of Sky Accounting for around 6yrs. My first meeting was amazing I felt like a important person. Many options and ideas where explained extremely well. They gave me information and knowledge regarding my tax return, this has made my life so much easier and less stressful as I work for myself. Sky Accounting staff are also great they are always very welcoming and they always know who they are talking too. Which I find doesn’t happen much these days I always look forward seeing either Jamie or Paul at Sky Accounting Ballarat Thankyou guys. Good genuine help is hard to find these days.


Tim Goode from Sky Accounting has been managing our business accounts for a number of years and I highly recommend the service, professionalism and communication we receive. Tim recently helped us to transition to a new accounting platform and we couldn't be happier.

David Jakobi

I visited Sky Accountants for some advice on the best way to minimise my tax when restructuring some of my investment portfolio. My previous accountant didn’t have the experience and expertise that I required. I had a meeting with Jamie and I was very impressed with his knowledge and advise in this area. I also meet some of the team and they were very easy to relate to, knowledgeable and very professional. Sky is cutting edge in the way they run their business and I am now also looking at implementing Xero software myself. Thanks to Jamie and his team for their expert advice in minimising my taxation obligations and great ideas for future investment planning. I highly recommend Sky Accountants.

Matthew Batty

NPIRE has been working with Sky Accountants for the last 12 months and are extremely satisfied with the service they have delivered. Working closely with Paul, Jamie and Larissa no request is too hard and they are able to find a solution for every challenge we face as a new small business. From the moment we sat down with them in Melbourne we knew that they were the right fit for our 2 businesses. We look forward to working with them and making each other better for many more years to come.
