McGillivray joins national accounting alliance

WESTERN Australian accounting firm McGillivray has joined a national alliance of chartered accountants as part of an effort to expand into new areas of the market and strengthen existing services.

Previously trading as McGillivray Fresh Expert Accountants, the firm has started trading as Lawler McGillivray after joining the Lawler alliance.

The alliance has offices in every east coast capital except Canberra, as well as a presence in some regional hubs; its annual turnover is about $63 million.

Based near the domestic airport, Lawler McGillivray employs 42 accountants and will leverage the alliance’s expertise in franchising and auditing to expand in to these areas in the WA market.

“The Lawler group is able to provide us with assistance, advice, templates and documents, and they’ve already started to do that,” McGillivray managing director Wayne Healy said.

“It was always going to be difficult for a WA accounting firm to develop a presence in the audit space,” he said.

Lawler chairman Terry Lawler said his group approached owner-operated firms to be part of the alliance, based on their culture and governance structures.
