Whilst one of the fastest moving pandemics of all time, COVID-19, hits the world in early 2020, Aura Partners and Hassos Chartered Accountants were finalising a merger that took 2 years to prepare.

“Is this something we should go ahead with?” we questioned, as we sat around the boardroom table. After much thought, we decided to continue with our plans and step into the unknown. We realised that with a great team and great clients we can make the business successful.

Fast forward 8 months later, as the year draws to an end, Aura Partners is proud to be listed in the AFR Top 100 Australian Accounting Firms. What an achievement in such a volatile year. We have truly stamped ourselves in the Accounting landscape, with the merger providing our 1,800 clients across Australia, Asia, Europe and the US, greater scale, efficiencies and expertise.

2020 will go down in history as the year that COVID-19 put a halt to daily life, but we will always remember it as the year two accounting firms came together to bring their clients even better service. We could not have done this without the help of Aura Group, which Aura Partners has long been associated with.

Our values of Integrity, Trust, Innovation and Client Focus help shape the way we work with our team and clients. This year, we have realised how resilient our clients are. They have innovated and worked harder than ever and it is truly encouraging to see what business owners are capable of amidst a global pandemic.

Aura Partners has prominent industry experience including a staffing group of 35 accountants, bookkeepers and administration. Offices located across Sydney, Bankstown, Bowral and Singapore expands the coverage of the group. Our team is the true reason for our success and we could not ask for a more committed and passionate group.

Apart from the standard compliance activities that we provide in tax, GST, bookkeeping and SMSF, we also offer a full suite of accounting services such as:

  • Business Advisory
  • Audit Services
  • Virtual CFO services
  • R&D Tax Incentives
  • Business setup and incorporations.

As we see the light at the end of the tunnel, as the restrictions of COVID-19 are relaxed, we see our role at Aura Partners crucial to our clients. We are excited for the future ahead and the opportunities to help our clients with an even better service offering.

Best regards
