The firm started in Maroochydore in November of 1998 when Greg Kamp, the Principal of Kamp Business Accountants had a vision to start a boutique firm that was different to the big firms that simply treated their clients as numbers and who created production lines to move work in and out with as little client contact as possible.
So just prior to his 30th birthday in November 1998, Greg purchased Coleman & Associates from Kenneth Coleman and set out to create his dream. The firm has grown from just being Greg, an Undergraduate and a part time Receptionist to a team of 8 very committed and focused professionals who strive to go that little bit further for their clients.
The firm specialises in small to medium sized businesses and investors, whether they be retirees or people looking to grow their wealth inside or outside of superannuation. Please see our services page to learn more about the specific services we use to assist our clients.
We are a CPA firm and are proud to be a Certified Practicing Accountant firm which is the largest accounting group in the WORLD! We use the benefits of being a member of our group to the benefit of our clients.
We have philosophies, not one mission statement because how can one statement encompass all a firm believes in?
We do not want to charge like "wounded bulls", we want our clients to see the value in what we do.
We want to be approachable and responsive, so we pride ourselves on our availability- you will rarely wait in our waiting room, we always return calls promptly and you will find it easy to get a suitable appointment time when you need to see us face to face.
We want you to understand what we do and what we say, so you will find that we talk in a way that anyone can understand- we cut out as much of the accounting jargon as we can and use examples to explain the point we are trying to make.
We want to help you navigate your way through your business journey. You should see us as an integral part of your business and first point of call if you have an issue. You will be treated equally whether you are our biggest or smallest client, as all our clients are considered important.
We want to tailor our services to your needs rather than have a set suite of services that you must choose. We will sit down and discuss your needs with you and ensuring we deliver exactly what you need.
We will be proactive but not intrusive. We do not want to bombard you with useless information but when an important issue arises then we want you to be aware of it.
We want to know our clients and their businesses. If we know what you do and how you do it, it will allow us to perform our job better.
We want to use our vast knowledge and experience that is continuously being updated to your benefit.
We work for you, our client and not the Tax Office. Contact our office in Maroochydore and get in touch with our accountants today!
