What We Believe in & Stand for as Your Accountants

At Dendra we exist to serve our clients and truly believe that your accountant should be the most trusted, reliable and responsive consultant supporting you and your business. But in 90% of cases, when we meet with people looking for a new accountant, we find that their experience with accountants is anything but this… Typically people tell us:

  • When they call their accountant, they don’t get back to them in a timely and prompt manner.
  • Their accountants never to hardly ever spend face-to-face time with them, or actively ask questions to discover what’s going on in their business and what problems they are dealing with; and never just call you to check in and see how things are going.
  • Many also complain about getting surprises on their bill, and find they’ve been charged for things they never anticipated or agreed to.

None of these happen when you have Dendra as your accountants.

For us communication is critical! We prioritise getting back to you when you call, and each and every year we sit down with you in a face-to-face meeting to get up to date with your biggest challenges. This face to face time allows us to understand your situation and bring our expertise to bear in ways that makes a huge difference to your bottom line.

We make recommendations based on what we discover during these in-depth meetings and provide a quote for all the initiatives we recommend, which are fully costed with bottom line benefits to you clearly shown in revenue or saving projections. You will always understand what we are doing and why, and how the work will benefit you. And because we are intimately involved with doing things that make a real difference to your bottom line, we will regularly call to check in and see how things are tracking at your end. It’s all part of our client centred business focus.

Business Accountant Melbourne, small business & manufacturing experts

Are you 100% Confident that your Accountant is doing all your Work themselves, right here in Australia?

This might sound like an outrageous question to ask, but there is not a single week that goes by when we don’t get calls from third world companies based in the Philippines, Vietnam and India, offering to do all our client work for us offshore!

From the volume of calls we receive, we believe this alarming practice is rifeHere’s what happens to your personal business information when it’s sent overseas to be processed…

Unbeknown to you, your sensitive business records and tax information are sent overseas, via the internet, often via insecure email, to be worked on by non-qualified people in accounting sweatshops, where people with an incomplete grasp of English, who don’t really understand the work they are doing, step your data through factory like procedures, to produce, at best, extremely mediocre outcomes, and at worst – incompetent results!

If this concerns you, (and we believe it should), we urge you to call your accountants today and ask them if they send your account information overseas to be worked on? And when you do, tell them that you want their answer in writing. We never use unqualified or overseas people to do our work because we know it will not produce the kind of results our clients come to us for. People come to Dendra to do better!

Why do Businesses do better with Dendra?

In an interview after winning Victorian Accounting Partner of the Year at the SMSF Accounting Awards, George Kontominas  shared how his vision for Dendra Accounting Group came directly in response to how dissatisfied he felt as an accountant after his first four years working in an accounting firm. What he shared is the reason why Dendra exists, and why your businesses will do better working with Dendra

“Back in 2002 when I stepped out on my own, my main reason for doing so was because I didn’t like the way clients were treated in a typical Accounting firm, that is, like a number… I felt my work was factory like, there was no innovation, no room for personalisation, and as a result the best I could do was produce mediocre outcomes.  I knew I could do better for my clients if I wasn’t forced to treat people’s financial situations like components in a production line. I wanted the freedom to use my skills to look deeper, to customise solutions to match individual circumstances so I could really help businesses. That’s what drove me to  step out on my own, and that desire is what has driven the development of the unique culture we now have at Dendra.”
