Our People

Chris Ganfield, CPA

In a previous life Chris owned and operated a successful café and bar in Cairns, and is therefore well placed to understand the range of issues faced by small business owners.

Chris specialises in accounting and taxation services to medical practitioners, and provides practical insight and solutions to complicated situations.

Chris also manages the Eagle audit function, and is extremely familiar with the requirements for real estate and resident letting agents under the Property Occupations Act 2014.

Don’t let that scare you off though… he also has a personality and makes a very tasty curry.
