Denise Kelly – Partner

With over 40 years’ experience, there’s nothing Denise doesn’t know about small business… well all things accounting! Just call her Guru. Being a Registered Tax Agent, Registered Superannuation Fund Auditor and a Fellow of the Institute of Public Accountants, she’s almost a saint as well! When she’s not playing with numbers, Denise enjoys gardening, swimming, fishing and when time permits hitting a round of golf.  And if all else fails, you’ll find her sipping on Prosecco in some idyllic Italian village with her daughter.

Sam Lowrey – Partner

Alexander, aka Sam, to get a response, is one of the principal accountants and major personalities in the team. With over 20 years accounting experience with SMEs and 10 years as a CPA member and Registered Tax Agent. Sam is your resident go to man for all thing accounting. From business structures, capital gains tax, investment properties, strategies and salary packaging, Sam has a plan to make it all work in your favour. And if you’re lucky he can also tell you where the best surf break is today, what ski slopes are just right for snowboarding, plus he can belt out a mean drum beat as the drummer for the band, Gunshy. What a guy! 
advantage plus thomas aichroy senior accountant

Thomas Aichroy – Senior Accountant

As a Chartered Accountant and Registered Tax Agent, Thomas thrives on SMEs and really relishes the chance to get his head stuck into a good business structure, SMSF or tax return. Thomas is obsessed with all things fishing and skiing and the 1,500 days spent chasing powder in Australia, New Zealand, North America and Europe whilst working as ski-tech and instructor certainly attests to that! 
advantage plus dale paulus practice manager

Dale Paulus – Practice Manager

Working with Denise and Nena back in the 1980’s, Dale has literally decades of experience (and she’s not ancient either) in the business and banking world. Returning home to Coffs in 2006 after 11 successful years in Brisbane as a practice manager in a medium sized accounting firm Dale is enjoying the coastal lifestyle. And seriously, life couldn’t be sweeter with her hobby bee farm in Nana Glen. Anyone need honey?

Nena Hull – Retired

Nena, our resident authority on all things pay related, retired in December last year. 
She was everyone’s favourite person in the team and will be very much missed by us all. 
We wish her the very best in her retirement and trust that she’ll be able to do more of the 
things she loves the most – knitting and caravanning her way to more exciting Aussie destinations. 
advantage plus matthew jones accountant

Matthew Jones – Accountant

Matthew has come down the waterfall way from Armidale to be a part of the team and has been prodded to commence his CPA this year. Although concerned that this may cut into his Saturday afternoon AFL or fishing time, Matt is keen to get stuck into the life of an accountant and grow a beard.

Hannah White – Trainee Accountant

Hannah moved to Coffs in 2013 from Inverell (halleluiah beaches we hear her say) to undertake her Bachelor of Business, majoring in Accounting at Southern Cross University. Since then Hannah has taken to the Coffs lifestyle like a duck to water and enjoys the gym, the perfect climate and frequents the beach with her beautiful dog, Monnie.
