Cutting Edge Accounting is a professional public practice business located in Cairns. The firm opened in 2012 and currently acts for clients in Queensland, Western Australian and the Northern Territory. The accounting practice is headed by Clint Flanagan who grew up in Cairns attending the local schools and university. Clint discovered a natural talent and a true passion for accounting while he was studying to become a stockbroker. He changed university courses to become an accountant and graduated in 2002. He has worked for accountancy firms both nationally and internationally.
Clint's enthusiasm for figures and Australian taxation law created a desire to begin his own accounting consultancy practice, focusing on assisting small business. Growing up in a family run business, Clint witnessed his own parent's frustration when they were unable to find an accountant who was more interested helping them grow the business' profits than on preparing tax returns. Seeing a need for an accountant who would listen, help plan and give sound business advice forged Clint's desire to be a real partner to small business.
Clint and the team at Cutting Edge Accounting work in an ethical and professional manner. They pride themselves on being a multi-disciplinary team, who are able to provide business advice gained from a comprehensive background in public practice.
Cutting Edge Accounting works closely with both established small business owners and those looking at buying, selling or starting their first business. The team is focused on supplying small business owners with all the tools and skills needed to manage their business as well as providing strategies to improve the performance of the business from day one.
In addition to offering a range of services found in similar accountancy firms, Cutting Edge Accounting stands out from the crowd by encouraging their clients to follow personalised business plans, with the view of maximising profitability and minimising cash wastage. With this strategy the business will provide the owners with a higher return on investment, a business that is worth more and a business that provides financial freedoms not otherwise possible.
