What our clients say

Commercial Flooring Installations

(CFI Group)

‘Our business has worked over the past 10 plus years with Melissa Harvey as our number one trusted accountant, Melissa saved our business from the initial firm we were using which did not have our best interests at the forefront, and were not aware of the correct way to deal with the structures we had in place.  Melissa has been able to turn our business around, structure it according to the businesses best interests and get our taxes back on track and working for us in the best possible way.’

Jason Gallagher Mechanical Services

Working with Mel has taken a lot of stress out of running a business. With our previous accountant, we only heard from them at tax time and now we have the constant support we need to be successful. Mel and Lauren are always happy to answer our questions and explain things in terms we can understand. Highly recommend TaxCentric as we are now confident with our finances and business moving forward.’

North West Physiotherapy Group

‘I have worked with Lauren over the last five years as my physiotherapy business has grown.  Her depth of knowledge and insight into the world of small business is second to none. She is enthusiastic, proactive and passionate in her desire for her clients, and their businesses, to be the best they can be. I have always found her to be approachable, friendly and professional and she can advise on basic bookkeeping through to complex corporate structures and tax planning. 
I would highly recommend Lauren for your tax and accountancy needs.’
