The Practice was founded by Graham Walsh in 1976. Mimicking the growth of the Gold Coast, the firm has evolved and expanded over the past 40 years.

"As the business world has changed, so have the needs of our clients' Graham explains. 

The firm over this time has successfully assisted its clients to navigate through the various business cycles as well as the business and tax changes that have occurred during this time. We have assisted our clients in managing their operations from record keeping on hand written ledgers, the introduction of Capital gains tax, superannuation and GST, transitioning to computer based accounting systems and now the advent of cloud based accounting systems and international trade.


Through the ongoing support of local business clients the firm has expanded significantly since 1976.  Graham merged the practice with Paul and Lynn Yates in the late 1990's.  Graham's son Tom Walsh joined the practice in 1994 and the firm became known as Walsh & Walsh in 2000.  Murray Kilpin joined the company in 2010 and brought with him his experience and knowledge in many areas including franchising and management rights, and become partner in 2014.  Read more…

Most importantly for local businesses it helps to identify where the opportunities lie. 

Some of the highlights I took from this report are: Read more…
